HTML5 vs WORDPRESS

We provide custom website solutions for your organization. When building a site for your organization, we take first into account your needs and the desired user experience. This enables us to determine which platform is best for your website. If your main focus is blogging or SEO optimization, then we may recommend WordPress, however, if your goal is to provide information about your products and services or provide click funnel landing pages, we would recommend a HTML5 platform.

Case for HTML5

While WordPress is the most popular platform, that also leads to disadvantages. One of those is that many hackers build robots designed to hack WordPress sites and insert viruses into the websites. A WordPress site that is not properly maintained and updated can be crippled. Accordingly, the cost for maintaining a HTML5 site is less expensive than one for WordPress. The reason is that WordPress sites have to be updated on a regular basis. Someone needs to check for updates to the themes and the widgets used to create the sites. Because of this, it is not uncommon for WordPress websites to cost you $500 per year to maintain. Whether you do this yourself or hire someone to maintain your site, the cost is associated with the time it takes to perform the backups and updates needed.

Case for WordPress

After reading the above, you may think there is never a reason to use WordPress. That is not the case. If you are interested in investing in your online presence than WordPress is a great solution. Because developers create widgets for WordPress there are things you can easily do and add to a WordPress site that are sometimes more difficult to do on a HTML5 site. Since WordPress was built around blogging, it is also a preferred solution for websites in which blogging is a high priority. Afterall, if someone is blogging on a regular basis, than backups and updates can be made while updating new blog posts. Finally, when we say investing in your online presense, we mean in optimizing your site for organic search engine optimization. WordPress has a number of useful widgets that help with organic SEO. If you plan on spending at least $500 per month to make sure your site is ranked as high as possible, than a WordPress site is the way to go.

CONTACT FORMS

Contact Forms

Your website needs to make sure there is an EASY way for visitors to contact you. The value of a contact form is it can help encourage visitors to send you a message while also allowing you to easily capture their key contact information. A well designed contact form can help lead people to the information you want them to see. When we design a website for you, we can redirect the user to any webpage upon submission of their form. This is the premise behind click funnels and it can all start with a simple contact form.

GEO-LOCATION & MAPPING

Build Your Brand

Want people to find where you are located? What if you have multiple locations? With proper mapping, you can make it easy for people to get directions to your physical address. When adding a map to your mobile-friendly website, users can simply visit your website and then click on the map to trigger Google Maps and detailed navigation. Geo-location also allows the users' GPS to identify which of your locations are closest to where they currently are located.

SSL CERTIFICATE | SECURE WEBSITE

SSL Certificate

Google has started to identify which websites are "not-secure". This means that a SSL Certificate is not applied to the domain and site. When you get a website through us, we include a SSL Certificate to your site once the site goes live. A SSL Certificate will help validate your site to both visitors and the search engines.
