Website Design – by Clann Associates
Why Clann Associates Use WordPress?
WordPress powers over 20% of the web -that’s over 60 million sites! WordPress is the most popular content management system with over 60% market share. (source)
WordPress Is Open Source (Free!)
Instead of having 6 developers supporting your website, you have over 12,000 developers who are part of a community working to constantly improve the product. You are not going to be stuck with a CMS that only one company understands. Your design could be picked up by any number of developers once Clann Associates have finished. (We don’t want to drive our clients away – and most stay with us for ongoing changes – but it should be a comfort to know that you are not stuck with us!)
WordPress Is Flexible and Extendable
Flexibility allows us to build sites faster, meaning more of your budget is focused on aesthetic design and user experience rather than programming and debugging. The community has made it extendable, meaning that almost everything you can think of has already been built, which speeds up development.
WordPress Is Easy To Use
As a Content Management System, WordPress is super-simple, intuitive and elegant to use, but is also robust. Clann Associates provide professionally made video tutorials and PDF User Manuals that will allow you update the site yourself in hours.
Website Design includes management and optimisation and at Clann Associates we use modern tools and techniques to design websites that operate effectively on all platforms and browsers. Software detects the user’s device and Responsive Themes automatically adjust to the viewing device whether computer, tablet or smart-phone.
Website design involves tasks that require a particular blend of skills. Before any website design activity takes place it is vital to understand the purpose of the website and the needs of the market from which to draw up a detailed specification. Details will include the site structure, navigation and the general look and feel of the site. And let’s be honest and practical about this – a budget too! You can spend as little or as much for your website as you wish.
If you only have a low budget you can have a ‘me too’ cheap and dirty ‘off-the-shelf’ ready made site that you customise yourself. The sort of package you might see advertised on TV. It can be quick – it depends on your skills and experience – and it can look smart and tidy, again, it depends on your design skills. And what if it does look like most other websites? It didn’t cost much and that was your priority.
For only a little more cost you can have so much more when you work with Clann Associates. A prototype site will be established for clients to inspect, on the web, before detailed design and development takes place. Regular maintenance is essential in order to keep the website fresh and up to date so that the interest of visitors and of Search Engines is maintained.
