I am very pleased to offer affordable WordPress web design to other authors and small businesses. WordPress is my platform of choice because:
- It’s easy to use
- It’s inexpensive to set up and maintain
- It lets you customize, tinker, and re-design as often as you want
WHAT IS WORDPRESS?
The WordPress universe encompasses WordPress.com and WordPress.org.
WordPress.com allows you to maintain a completely free site, with options for paid upgrades. Your site will come with automatic security updates and spam-fighting features built in.
WordPress.org allows for greater customization and has better e-commerce options, but costs to maintain the site are higher and maintenance is more technical.
Feel free to ask for more information about either/both types of WordPress sites!
As a lawyer, author, and entrepreneur, I am well-versed in the topics authors and business owners need to know before establishing a brand and online presence. I will provide you with information and support on:
- Use of images and links on your site or blog
- Building a consumer-friendly website that displays well on all devices
- Maintaining and updating your own site
I have taken courses in marketing and branding, and have several years of experience building websites for myself, friends and family, and colleagues.
