If we are building a new site for you, or moving you from Blogger to WordPress, there are a few things that are necessary.
- Domain – Either we will need to purchase a new domain for you, or we will need access to where your current domain is registered (usually somewhere like GoDaddy or Namecheap).
- Hosting – WordPress.org requires a host account to “house” your site files. We primarily recommend SiteGround, but Bluehost is also a good option.
- Theme – A WordPress theme is necessary to customize the look of your site. Each theme comes with its own capabilities. We specialize in the Genesis Framework by StudioPress and have found it to be the most reliable and flexible.
You can choose between a variety of design or development options, based on your current needs. View our list of services and rates here.
WordPress uses add-ons called plugins that add functionality to your site. Included in most basic site projects are plugins for Google Analytics and SEO, social media sharing (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.), a contact form, and a spam filter for comments.
Once we discuss your project and goals, we can make recommendations for other site additions.
A Virtual Assistant is like a personal assistant who works virtually, meaning we can work together regardless of either of our respective locations. The majority of work requests and correspondence are handled via email; occasionally a Skype or phone conversation is necessary.
