Free In-Depth Chat

Firstly, we take the time to understand your business, customers, competitors, needs, and goals.

You can expect a lot of questions because it’s essential we get a deep understanding of your current and future requirements so we can help you determine if WordPress is the best option for you.

As an example, if you are looking to sell online with an ecommerce-enabled store, then WordPress with WooCommerce could be a good option for you or you may be better suited with an alternative such as Shopify; PrestaShop or perhaps a custom-built Laravel solution built to meet your unique requirements.

It’s also important to know if you need your new website to integrate with any other business software, systems or online platforms. When you connect online systems it usually reduces costs, saves time and makes a business far more productive. (At Concise, we don’t just build good websites. We’re integration experts too.)

This initial consultation can be done over the phone, on a video call or over coffee, if you prefer. We are very flexible with our working hours and will always try to fit in with you for suitable meeting times.

If possible, we will try to give you some ballpark pricing estimates so you can quickly choose if you want to continue discussions with us.

Provide a Brief with Estimates

After we scope the project, we will come back to you with a detailed brief confirming exactly what you want, including pages, colours, photos, and features with estimates on how long each section will take.

We provide you with cost estimates upfront, so you know how much your WordPress website will cost with no surprises later. We then go through this together and we can adjust the website requirements, work tasks and time estimates to suit your budget.

We recommend implementing strong SEO fundamentals early in development. If you decide to do SEO work on your website in the future, having these foundations already built will save you money down the line.

These foundations will be created by our team of SEO specialists and will add additional cost to your new WordPress site.

You Engage Concise Digital

At some point after the initial discussions, you need to formally engage us. You do this by completing our online Client Engagement form.

Of course, you will only engage us if you are confident we can deliver what you want on time, within your budget and to the level of quality you want.

It’s about trust, and you need to trust us. As the old saying goes, ‘it take two to tango’, and we need to trust you too.

From our perspective, we are choosy when we take on new clients. We want to work with like-minded people who have good businesses, realistic expectations and are likely to become happy, long-term clients. Gareth Lane calls it the ‘beer test’.

Sitemap Planning & SEO Recommendations (optional)

Most service-based businesses can benefit from search engine optimisation. This is an important area where WordPress really shines. WordPress is very SEO friendly from the extensive metadata and flexible URL structures it allows to the clever ways that pages ad posts can be categorised.

If you would like your WordPress website to incorporate search engine optimization best practices, we start by conducting keyword research to help inform the URLs, sitemap and navigation, new page suggestions and mapping vital on-page SEO best practices.

If you’re moving from an old website to a new one, we will create all the required redirects to ensure that any backlinks and bookmarks going to pages on the old site will still work and will automatically redirect website visitors to the correct page on your new website.

It can take years to build up good visibility and prominence for your web pages within search engines. If your website ranks high in search engines for important keywords, we employ techniques to maintain your rankings. This involves carefully planning URL structure changes, navigation changes, content changes and any metadata changes to maintain your high rankings.

Design Mockups

Before starting design mockups, you will need to provide your branding guidelines and all essential design assets, like logos, photos and videos you want us to incorporate. Once we have this, we provide you with design mockups of the mobile and desktop home page.

You review those designs, provide your feedback and tell us any suggestions or alterations that are needed. Once the home page designs are approved, we move on to create the designs for standard internal pages and any pages that need specific designs for special functionality or user interactivity.

Development & Walkthrough

Once the designs are approved, we move on to the development phase. All our code is as lightweight as possible and aligned with best user experience practices.

Your WordPress site is built in a staging environment which you can access throughout the project. Once everything is exactly how you want it, we will provide training on how to use all its features in your WordPress dashboard.

Your Content

The next piece of the puzzle is to add your content.

If you are creating the content for your site, this will need to be provided to us before your website can launch. Alternatively, you may want our SEO and content team to create content for your pages. In this case, we will work with you to populate your pages.

Having your content written using the best on-page SEO techniques is powerful. Correctly optimised and professionally written web content will allow you to rank better for important keywords in search engines and convert more leads.

User Experience & Functionality Testing

After development is complete and the site content is added, we will go through and test each page on desktop and mobile and make adjustments. We will also check that all functionality is working correctly and troubleshoot any issues.

Hosting

The next stage is to set up your website hosting and ensure it is working perfectly ready to go ‘live’.

At Concise Digital, we have our own high-level business-grade hosting servers as part of AWS, and we have our own Hosting Support Team available 24/7 coverage to provide ongoing technical support to all of our hosting clients. (This is important, as very few web design agencies are big enough to have their own hosting support technical team.)

SEO Migration Checklist (optional)

Before and after your website goes live, we will implement relevant tasks from our SEO migration checklist to reduce the chance of any drops in your rankings and organic web traffic.

This involves tasks like implementing redirects, copying across your previous metadata, updating internal links with new URLs and much more.

Go Live & Testing

This is when we make your new website live to the world. As part of this process, we immediately test the site to ensure all elements function properly across all devices.

We provide comprehensive training to make sure you understand how to use the backend of your WordPress website. Remember if you ever have any issues, our support team are available 24/7.

Follow Up Chat

Your website project does not stop with the launch of the site. Really, the launch is just the start of the next stage for your business.

We stay in touch with you and help you through any teething issues you may have.

A couple of weeks after your website has gone live is usually a good time for us to talk with you and to go through your initial reports in Google Analytics. We can also provide suggestions on digital marketing strategies you could implement to grow your online presence, attract traffic to your website and gain potential clients.

What Businesses
Is WordPress Most Suited to?

WordPress is best suited to service-based businesses that want an affordable and flexible website that can scale with their business. It’s also designed for content creation and management, making it perfect for bloggers. In fact, this website, the Concise Digital website, is a WordPress site.

WordPress can also be used for ecommerce websites that are online stores selling physical or digital products online. WooCommerce is a very popular ecommerce plugin that integrates nicely with WordPress, so adding ‘sales’ capability is relatively easy.

    Have a Question About WordPress?

    How is WordPress Different from WooCommerce?

    WordPress is an open-source content management system, whereas WooCommerce is an open-source third-party plugin that adds eCommerce functionality to a WordPress website. WooCommerce will allow you to create an online store, with all the usual eCommerce features, including product catalogues, shipping integration and online payments.

    Can I Build My Own WordPress Website?

    Yes, it is possible to build your own WordPress website if you have the suitable technical skills in websites. Some page builder plugins like Elementor allow you to design your pages in a drag and drop style without having to use code.

    The downside of these builders is that they don’t always adjust well to all devices and they may contain a lot of unnecessary code which can slow down your website.

    How Do I Get Started With WordPress?

    The first step before installing WordPress is to purchase your web hosting and domain name.

    Our web host team can help with these two steps.

    Once you have installed WordPress, you can create a website by choosing a theme, either a free theme or a premium theme.

    Is WordPress A Secure Software?

    WordPress is an open-source system. The software is viewable by anyone, which means some people may find and exploit vulnerabilities in the code, and then cause a security breach. Fortunately, these breaches are usually found quickly and security updates, known as ‘patches’, are quickly issued by WordPress.

    If you have a WordPress site, it’s essential that your software, theme and plugins are kept up to date, as older versions can be more easily compromised. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as clicking ‘update’, adding the patch and everything working fine. The site needs to be tested after updates are done, especially if your website contains custom code.

    At Concise, we recommend web developers make any updates and ensure everything is functioning properly following updates. We also recommend changing your WordPress admin default login, as most people can guess a website and then hack the user name.

    For all our WordPress web design projects, we change the admin default to provide extra security as well as install high performing security plugins.

    How to Backup WordPress Websites?

    There are several ways to back up your business website, via your hosting or plugins.

    Our hosting offers backup solutions, with daily backups that will completely backup your entire website.

    Say Hello

    Please contact us any time for help with your website, online store or digital marketing solutions. With 50+ team members across 6 time zones, we can usually respond quickly.

    If you have any hosting issues, our in-house technical infrastructure support team is available for clients 24/7.
