WordPress Website Builds

First Impressions Matter.

Make It Count.

Our Approach to WordPress Website Builds

We like to keep things super simple to prevent everyone from getting bogged down in the details.

Getting client websites to market (or back to market in better shape than before) fast, while still paying attention to the little details, is what we do.

We Offer Two Paths

Website as a Service (WaaS)

We have done countless projects in the past, that involved scoping the project, providing not-to-exceed price quotes, custom design, multiple revisions, etc., but those days are over, and that is a benefit to all parties involved.

Our Website as a Service (WaaS) offering allows us to simply roll up our sleeves and get to work, so clients get to market faster, and get there at a much lower price point.

As a fully-managed offering, we handle everything for you, so you can focus on your business.

Build Blocks

These are pre-paid blocks of time that can be put towards anything related to a WordPress website with the exception of custom development.

With this particular offering, it’s anything goes, in terms of when we get involved and how we can help in the building of a website.

We can jump in at the beginning of the project, in the middle, or towards the end.

In terms of the technology (WordPress theme, WordPress plugins, etc.) used to build the website, we can offer suggestions or simply work with what the client asks us to work with.

How It Works

Once you purchase a Build Block, we gather the necessary credentials, optionally onboard the project into Asana, and get to work.

Any time you purchase does not expire and can be used for future work.

If you find you need something else down the road, you can simply reach out to us and we’ll clock in again, using any remaining time.

We Are With You Every Step

We can help clients from beginning to end, to help make their projects come to life.

The websites we build are not only responsive, but we also take pride in our own responsiveness. 

We deliver websites that are beautiful, fast, secure, mobile-friendly, and SEO-ready as part of our WordPress Website Build services.

No complicated code. No designer dependency.

Think of this as being contractors needing to know how many bedrooms, how many bathrooms, and what kitchen appliances your house will need.

Covers all emails, calls, online meetings, etc., required to complete the project and any extra time required to become familiar with and support custom/premium solutions.

We help clients…

  • Learn more about their current environments.
  • Determine if their current environment will suffice for the project or if changes should be made.
  • Stay engaged with projects by asking the right questions at the right time.

We can work with a client’s existing infrastructure and/or recommend and implement new solutions.

Our specialty is bolstering a client’s infrastructure, without introducing additional complexity and added costs.

Often times, we’re able to help clients reduce their overall infrastructure complexity while reducing operational cost.

Infrastructure elements include a Content Delivery Network (CDN), Domain Hosting, and Website Hosting.

We help clients…

  • Bolster their infrastructure without overly-complicating it.
  • Reduce their operational cost.
  • Procure, implement, and manage a Content Delivery Network (CDN).
  • Procure, implement, and manage Domain Hosting.
  • Procure, implement, and manage Website Hosting.

Think of WordPress Core as the foundation of your home.

We install the WordPress platform within your website hosting environment, configuring it according to best practices and in a way that accomplishes the project deliverables.

We help clients…

  • Implement WordPress according to best practices.
  • Optimize WordPress for security and performance.
  • Configure WordPress to meet project deliverables.
  • Personalize WordPress to match their business or brand, where possible/needed.

Think of your theme as the interior and exterior construction features of your house.

We install your WordPress Theme, configuring it according to best practices and in a way that accomplishes the project deliverables.

We help clients…

  • Implement the WordPress Theme according to best practices.
  • Optimize the WordPress Theme for performance.
  • Configure the WordPress Theme to meet project deliverables.
  • Personalize the WordPress Theme to match their business or brand, where possible/needed.

Think of WordPress Plugins as add-ons to your home that give it more features and added functionality.

We implement our recommended “base” plugins and configure them according to best practices.

Depending on the project, we will then implement and configure the necessary plugins to accomplish the project deliverables.

We help clients…

  • Implement WordPress Plugins according to best practices.
  • Optimize the WordPress Plugins for performance.
  • Configure the WordPress Plugins to meet project deliverables.
  • Personalize the WordPress Plugins to match their business or brand, where possible/needed.

While other firms may just deliver content in the form of placeholders (i.e. dummy data), we go the extra mile.

We can place all of the content for clients, including images, copy, contact info, team member info, and more.

This not only saves clients time, but also gives us the ability to keep the quality of design intact with the proper sizing, spacing, and colorization of content.

Having amazing content is huge, but if a client’s website is slow, it may be such a turn off that visitors don’t stick around to consume it.

When we place content, we’re able to use our optimization methods to make the content load as quickly as possible.

We help clients…

  • Save time by placing all content on their websites for them.
  • Keep their design intact with the proper sizing, spacing, and colorization of content.
  • Maintain website performance by optimizing the loading of images, videos, documents, etc.

While Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is an ongoing commitment once a website is launched, it should be part of any website designer’s process to set up a client’s website for success from the beginning.

Let’s say we’re handed the content (heading text, sub-heading text, body text, images, etc.) to build out a website page. Rather than just throwing this content on the page and making it look pretty, we “SEO” the content based on the business/brand, supplied keywords, keyword opportunities we find, etc.

Website performance is also very important when it comes to SEO. If a client’s website is slow, visitors will not stick around long, and this is a red flag for search engines like Google. When it comes to SEO, we don’t want any red flags raised with search engines.

We help clients…

  • Determine a keyword strategy and/or use our own research to come up with keywords.
  • Implement an SEO plugin according to best practices.
  • Optimize their content for search engines such as Google.
  • Maintain website performance by optimizing the delivery of images, videos, documents, etc.

This is the little icon that appears in the tabs of your website browser, helping with website identification when switching between tabs.

If a client doesn’t already have a Favicon, we’ll create one and apply it to the website, at no additional cost.

We help clients…

  • Save time and money by not having them create and place a favicon.
  • Get their websites launched faster since we don’t have to request and wait for the Favicon to be provided.
  • Keep their design intact with the proper sizing, spacing, and colorization of the favicon.
  • Maintain website performance by optimizing the image format and compression.

These are the icons that link to any social media accounts that are related to a business or brand.

We help clients…

  • Save time by adding and testing social media icon links on their behalf.
  • Keep their design intact with the proper sizing, spacing, and colorization of icons.

This is an optional, paid item that can be easily added to your project.

It’s important to have the right images and graphics that fit your brand.

While there are some great, no-cost resources for finding images and graphics, those resources are used so often that websites start to look alike.

Using a premium resource is recommended for not only the quality but also for the uniqueness of the images and graphics.

From the project start date to the project end date, we provide a premium resource (at a discount) for your team to obtain desired images and graphics. 

Any items obtained will be the website owners to keep.

We help clients…

  • Save time by not having to locate, sign up for, and purchase an account.
  • Obtain high-quality images and graphics at a discount.
  • Determine the best image and image orientation for specific areas on their website.

This is an optional, paid item that can be easily added to your project.

Depending on the project, it may make sense to put up a temporary Coming Soon Page, that tells an audience when a website is going to launch and/or to capture email addresses in return to be notified of an upcoming launch.

We help clients…

  • Implement a non-scrollable Coming Soon Page.
  • Configure the Coming Soon Page to meet project deliverables, including elements such as an email capture form.
  • Personalize the Coming Soon Page to match their business or brand, where possible/needed.
     

This is an optional, paid item that can be easily added to your project.

Google Analytics (GA) is a free web analytics service that provides statistics and basic analytical tools for search engine optimization (SEO) and marketing purposes. 

We help clients…

  • Set up their GA account.
  • Set up starter filters.
  • Configure their websites to use GA.

"WP Turned UP has been an indispensable resource for my business.

From their quick responses in the early days of simple learning about the MyListing theme all the way up to helping me launch my startup to paid subscribers.

And beyond! I’ve worked with them for nearly a year on my website and they have been supportive to the point that I consider them part of my team.

They truly understand the entrepreneurial mindset, have creative solutions to problems, and are always quick and punctual with tasks.

If you’re building a MyListing website, you’re not going to find better people to work with who know more about the theme than them.

They are a master at it."

"Wow, where to start?

The WP Turned UP team has been amazing.

I was having so many problems with my hosting and slow service even though I had a business hosting account that was meant to be fast.

They stepped in, asked me a few questions, and then took over.

We moved my hosting to Kinsta, implemented an image optimization solution, and a few other bits.

The speed and functionality of my website drastically turned around and I'm more comfortable with marketing the site without embarrassment.

WP Turned UP's communication and help has been invaluable and their knowledge is amazing.

I'm looking forward to carrying on working with them and have already recommended them to a few people.

I encourage anyone to use their services."

"Thank you, WP Turned UP for helping me scale my business while saving money at the same time.

Transferring our website to the WP Turned UP's Kinsta hosting plan was extremely easy.

Trying to get the plugins and hosting on my own would easily have cost 10 times more.

Kinsta and WP Turned UP are always quick to respond and help me with any issues or questions that I have.

WP Turned UP and the MyListing theme is the powerhouse combo that everyone needs to build and grow their online directory quickly and easily."

They have provided terrific customer service, demonstrated detailed technical knowledge, and go above and beyond with every detail.

From our precise project plan in the beginning to their straightforward contract, they are consummate professionals.

WP Turned UP's ability to explain complex technical concepts to the average computer user is an extraordinary skill, as is their level of patience with someone just learning the ropes.

"I was so excited telling a friend about my website and how smooth it was to work with WP Turned UP.

My friend was like wow...it looks like you had really found a great team supporting your project!

And yes, that is how I feel, from technical questions, to design and all the things that involve starting a MyListing website from zero, the process always has been outstanding!

Fast communication, fast delivery, and the best of all...very reliable.

My online business is up and running, and this would have never happened if I tried to learn and do it all myself.

Worth every single dollar!"

"I cannot say enough about Ryan with WP Turned UP and his services.

I was at the end of my rope and ready to pull the plug on my MyListing Directory because of issues that I did not know how to fix.

People, I hired only made it worse.

Someone recommended Ryan and I am SO glad they did.

From the minute I reached out to Ryan he let me know what was going to be done and what it would cost.

He responded immediately and has stayed in touch every step of the way.

What a relief!

We set everything up on a task board and he knocked out every issue one by one in no time.

Buying blocks of time allows him to dig in and find out what is wrong and correct.

He is very knowledgeable so it does not take him long to get things sorted out.

I'm now on a MyListing Website Care plan and I have such peace of mind knowing he is monitoring the site and will handle any hiccups.

I have so much confidence in Ryan that I’ve hired him to take the site to the next level with SEO.

HIGHLY Recommend! "

"After having my website down for 3 months due to another web developer, I reached out to WP Turned UP and they helped me create an entire site with TWO directories within 2 weeks.

They listened to me and were able to create my vision into reality within the capabilities of MyListing.

I am not very tech-savvy, but they were helpful in providing different options that I can look into for the goals that I am trying to reach, including increasing my income streams.

I highly recommend working with WP Turned UP! "

"WP Turned UP has made my “weblife” so much easier.

I have, in the past, found myself explaining system requirements or user functionality time and time again until I’ve just given up, but not with WP Turned UP though.

WP Turned UP is not just geeky techies., they live in the real world.

When you say you need X, they know why you need it, what it should look like, and may also suggest a Y to go with it.

They see it and talk about it from a user perspective rather than a technical one.

WP Turned UP has helped me with various website challenges and have always exceeded expectation.

I would not hesitate to recommend them to beginners and experts alike."

"The guys from WP Turned UP are as fast and reliable as the websites that they build and optimize!

I really appreciate them for being able to not only understand the technical parts but also seeing the bigger picture at all times.

As a digital marketer, it is important to only work with people who fully understand what you do - even for website optimization.

I am happy that I finally found an agency that I can trust and rely on.

Now I can finally focus on my main business again!"

"Most of the maintenance for our website was handled overseas, only to have numerous issues with basic functions occur over and over.

WP Turned UP has now taken over the maintenance and has drastically turned things around for us within just a few days.

Having someone who understands, not just reacts, has made the world of difference for us!"
