Why you should not put all your eggs in one basket!

And how to easily get more engagement from many, diverse sources!

As I have been taught in life, you should not put all of your eggs into one basket.

Sure, it’s nice to have an all-in-one package deal…

But with a website, its best to keep everything separate. So that if one fails, you can easily rectify without affecting too much of the other components.

I specialize in helping individuals and businesses set up their websites using WordPress. I also work with an SEO specialist, a programmer, and a graphic designer.

Why WordPress?

Because it is widely used, and allows you to easily update your website without the help of a professional. You can also add new features at any time.

Depending on your budget, you can have a custom design or choose the thousands of free or paid available themes. WordPress even allows you to build powerful ecommerce sites (online shops).

WordPress is free to install on your hosting account and you can use themes and plugins from all over the Web.

So why hire a professional to setup your WordPress site?

Uploading WordPress to your hosting account is probably the easiest way – if you know how to use FTP. Otherwise, you can do a direct install from your cpanel. Then, you have to find a theme unless you know how to make a custom one.

Not all themes are created equal. They are all built differently; some have features that others do not have; they all serve different purposes.

For example, a magazine theme is more appropriate for blogging. If you are a photographer, then you might want a portfolio-oriented theme. There are themes built especially for bands or events. It can get quite overwhelming…

There are a lot of tutorials available online but they are more oriented for the working core of WordPress. Themes evolve very quickly and updating tutorials for each one is quite a daunting task.
Basically this is where I come in: to save you from the hassles of finding the right theme for your business, installing the basic plugins needed to run the site smoothly, finding and installing the extra plugins you might need for extra features. And I will spend some time with you to explain how to do it all yourself once it is set up.

It should not be difficult or expensive to build your online presence.

Get your online presence for a small investment.
I will even show you how to update your site so that you do not feel trapped or held hostage by a website designer.

I work remotely from the Sunshine Coast. I take briefs by Skype, phone, email or in person. I will meet at a local coffee shop or place of business but not at your home. I’m available most of the time during the day (Brisbane, Australian time), weekdays. The best way for me to help you and not waste time for either of us, is to send me an email which I usually answer within 12 hrs weekdays. I do not work on weekends and will only attend to emergency at a price.

As I am a consultant, my time is money. So if you need me to help please understand I will have to charge you for my time and my consultation fees are $80/hr – minimum one hour.
A 50% down payment on any type of website or projects is payable before.

For emergencies especially outside my business hours, it is easier to send me a text asking me to call you back ASAP rather than sending me an email or leaving a voice message.
