I have to admit that I’m a huge fan of HTML websites. I cut my teeth learning how to code HTML sites.
However, changing every page every time I wanted or needed to make a single change or add a new page was tedious and time consuming. It was frustrating knowing that if I made a single mistake, it would take quite a long time to make a fix and consequently, building sites stopped being fun.
The last straw was when I wanted to add contact forms. Email links opened up the site to tons of spam and made the site look dated before it’s time. Adding a dynamic contact form meant adding code in PHP.
“PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor is a server-side scripting language designed for Web development, but also used as a general-purpose programming language.” Wikipedia
Web Development. PHP is the programming language behind WordPress. WordPress is a Content Management System. It drives about 30% of all web sites.
That’s a lot of web sites.
The first time I programmed a menu in PHP I was hooked. That and the dedication of Automattic – the company behind WordPress – to continue to create a professional product finally convinced me that it was time to stop wasting my time.
Now, unless I need a very simple, one-page announcement type of site, WordPress is my go-to website builder of choice. It was probably the best decision I’ve made in awhile. HTML is rarely responsive and that means more coding – you might even being paying monthly for a separate site.
While creating a site from scratch may be cost-prohibitive, updating an existing site by converting it to WordPress comes in at a much lower price-point.
If your site is looking dated or the cost of having to maintain two separate sites is putting a strain on your budget, please use the Contact Page and let’s talk about how we can get your site updated, responsive, secure, and easily managed.
The usual price for updating a site runs about $1200 and up.
If your site is less than 20 pages, my current Summer Special for a straight update is $500. However, at this price, I can only take on 8 new clients.
If you’re reading about this Special Price, you still have time to get in on this deal. Please use the Contact Form and enter the words UPDATE SPECIAL in the subject line.
I look forward to hearing from you!
