WordPress Development

We are capable of providing just about all digital services that you can think of. However, we will be honest with you by saying that where we really shine is in WordPress Development.  For years we’ve been excelling at WordPress development.  We build themes and plugins that are customized to your specific business’s needs.  What does that mean?  Well, WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS).  We build sites that store your website content in a database.  The CMS makes it easy for you to add, remove, or change content in real time.  In the old days, you often had to reach out to your web developer and ask him or her to make the changes for you and you were at the mercy of their schedule.  By building your site on the WordPress CMS, you will be able to login to an admin dashboard and upload new images, change pricing, add specials and or events… and upon hitting save, it will update your website in real-time.

At the end of the day, we love writing code, but more importantly, we love writing code that gives our clients a stronger presence on the web.  Learn More

NEWWordPress Training – Do you have a WordPress site and want to learn how to make the most of your website? We have been getting a lot of this lately and have, therefore, decided to start offering WordPress training sessions. These can vary from 1-on-1 sessions to group sessions. We can do single sessions to multiple sessions that also vary in duration. For the average person using a pretty basic WordPress theme, 1 to 2 hours is recommended. However, for some of the more complex themes that utilize calendar of events, WooCommerce, custom post types, etc. we might recommend setting up an agreed upon amount of time that can be used over a month or even within the year.

If you are interested in our training sessions, contact us to set up a time to review your site’s setup as well as your marketing goals. We can then determine the right training structure for you.

Graphic Design

Before you start a website design, you should have at a minimum a logo.  If not we can help.  In many cases, you might also need to identify your brand’s colors and fonts.  Our graphic designers have decades of experience and specialize in things like color theory and typography.  They also specialize in understanding how users interact with technology across mobile, tablets, and desktop devices.  Therefore, they can create the correct hierarchy in your website design.  This starts with developing an information architecture of your site pages that ultimately leads to developing your website’s navigation and how your users will get from the homepage to pages tucked away inside the site and to other pages or back to the homepage…

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

SEO is a huge part of every website.  As a minimum, our developers will build the site using today’s best practices and standards in SEO.  This means that we will build the site with the ability to update keywords within proper code structure and SEO-friendly urls.  Our SEO specialists can also do audits on existing sites to tell you what areas are working well and opportunities missed.  SEO audit costs vary depending on the size of the site as well as the amount of existing data to analyze such as Google Analytic reports, Conductor or MOZ SEO reports.  So, and SEO audit could range from a few hours of work to a few days, but at the end, we will provide you with a report detailing rankings, keyword density, keyword effectiveness, and keywords to implement.  This usually means copy needs to be written or re-worded.  Just know that we can help with copywriting as well.

Our SEO offerings range from one-time audits to long-term engagements where we meet with you on a regular basis to review changes in rank, missed opportunities, and areas of improvement…  Although we can do SEO on any sites/business, we shine in hospitality and tourism.

Website Hosting

Let Confluence host your WordPress sites.  Our hosting solution is managed WordPress hosting.  This means that we don’t put anything on the servers but WordPress websites.  The servers are also tuned to work with just WordPress with firewall level security and nightly backups.  Yes, it is true that you can get this from several companies such as Godaddy and even Siteground.  However, our development environment, staging environment, and our code deployment processes are tightly coupled with our hosting.  As a result, routine maintenance updates and website changes are seamless.
