What is really more important your website or social networking?

Things are changing from when I first started “designing” websites.  As I have said before in other posts my industry is not regulated…which means people (web companies, designers etc) can say whatever they want whether it’s true or not and make a living.  So please know that before you let someone fill your head with “what’s important” or what you really need etc.  I still believe you need a website…..it should be attractive, easy to navigate, and informative and found in the basic search engines like bing, google and yahoo.  You should have a business facebook page and a twitter page ONLY if you will keep it updated and fresh….you can also spend money running ads on facebook.  I would also have a linkedin page….

Those are the basics and then you can take each of those components to the next level.

My company can take care of the website and the social networking…..so please feel free to give me a call or fill out the contact form and I would be happy to talk with you and answer any questions you may have!

WordPress vs. HTML or PHP for your website

I can tell you that for my business I hear both ends of the spectrum on what is the best back end for clients websites.  First of all the industry of web design is not regulated and therefore every web designer and web design company have a different opinion and can and DO and SAY anything they want and THEY DO SAY AND DO ANYTHING THEY WANT!.  Who is to say who is right??  Last week a client talked to someone that filled their head with the importance of WordPress and the next week a future client called that said his web company LAUGHED when he mentioned WordPress…..so right then and there I see in 2015 web professionals saying two conflicting statements.    I can tell you that I have clients with WordPress and without.  I have clients that do very well WITHOUT WordPress that have very successful and profitable websites and I have clients that HAVE WordPress that have very successful and profitable websites…..so for me I cannot tell a client one is better then the other.

I fought for years not to get involved with WordPress because it’s template driven and I am a custom web designer.  I would open photoshop and create a custom design perfect for that client that matched their existing branding.  WordPress started off as a BLOG not a website.   But my website you are looking at is 100 percent Worpress driven and I used the bones of a template and customized for my purposes.  This same site could have been created outside of wordpress in HTML or PHP but I thought I would try something different and see how it works for me so I can have an opinion to present to a client in the future.

Here is a humorous video that explains pricing and client expectations!

Basically what she wants would cost about $120,000 or more but she wants to spend $500…. 😉
