WordPress was initially designed for blogging

Now it has become one of the most powerful Website creation tools available:-

  • 85% of new Websites today use WordPress – and many Websites are being re-designed with WordPress.
  • Once a WordPress Website is created, you can easily update the Website yourself, making it a good choice for individuals, not for profit organisations and small or medium-sized businesses.
  • There is no software to buy and edits can be made from any computer, anywhere.
  • We offer individual and small group WordPress Training in Penarth, Cardiff and Swansea for those who wish to do this.
  • Many people view ‘on the go’ not from a office desk and wordpress websites and responsive and therefor mobile-friendly. A WordPress Website gives you the ability to make changes and update yourself . WordPress is ‘Responsive’ – as it adapts to various screen resolutions and look great on mobile devices such as tablets and mobile phones.
  • A great Website starts with a good first impression. Viewers make up their minds about a Website in the blink of an eye.
  • Making a Website doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Websites that are difficult to create, tend to be difficult to use – and that is precisely what you don’t want.
