WordPress websites portfolio

Here’s a list of some of the websites I’ve designed while working at Baker Marketing or developed as a freelancer for clients in Adelaide using WordPress.

At Baker Marketing we recommend the WordPress content management system (CMS) because it helps customers save money, lets them take control of their own sites to add, edit and remove content, and delivers great search engine visibility with built-in and plug-in SEO abilities.

It can also incorporate advanced functionality like e-commerce, mapping, and user-submitted content.

Top 10 reasons we like WordPress

Here are the top 10 reasons we like using WordPress for web design and development:

1. WordPress is free and open source

WordPress is completely free, forever. And WordPress doesn’t start charging when your website exceeds a certain size, or amount of traffic. Even the best third-party themes are affordable for any business, big or small.

2. Automattic takes care of WordPress

Automattic, the company that makes WordPress, constantly updates their product, and the WordPress community is a great source of help and support.

3. The CMS and its visual editor are excellent

WordPress is continually improving its CMS, adding new features and enhancing the user interface.

4. WordPress plugins give easy functionality

WordPress plugins allow you to easily add photo galleries, sliders, shopping carts, and more more great functionality.

5. It’s easy to add a blog to your website with WordPress

WordPress was originally a blogging platform, so if you’re using it to create a website, blog functionality is simple to implement. Blog categories, tags, threaded commenting, moderation controls, anti-spam plugins, and plugin infrastructure, you can’t find a better blog solution. Adding a blog to any site  is a great way to attract visitors and ensure that Google’s watching.

6. Thousands of themes give you the look you want

While we love doing custom design for our clients, many don’t really need it.  By customising an affordable theme from a reputable provider, we can make a robust and elegant website solution at a faction of the cost of a customer website.

7. It’s easy to keep your WordPress site secure

WordPress is surprisingly easy to update for ongoing security and new functionality.  When a new version is available, WordPress will give you an easy link for a one-click upgrade. Just remember to back up your WordPress website before doing an install! There are backup plugins that make it easy!

8. Google loves WordPress for SEO

WordPress sites are generally text-based although they don’t have to look that way, and their structure makes it easy for Google’s search robots to crawl. So your website gets indexed quickly and often, so that the people who want what your offering can find you.

9. WordPress sites are accessible

WordPress sites are usually built on relatively simple and accessible technologies.  It’s easy to install on Windows or Linux servers.  It uses all free license server software.  The web pages render in HTML and CSS allowing them to show up on all manner of devices, and many themes are responsive so they look great on mobile devices. WordPress sites are easily read by text-only browsers for people with disabilities.

10. Your website can grow

Your WordPress website can grow with you and your business.  You can upgrade for new features and security.  You can add a new theme without redoing your whole site.  You can add new plugins to add e-commerce and other functionality.
