A website is a person’s or company’s online businesscard. Their online profile besides Social Media. Having such an important roll to play ones website has to sell the message, be aesthetically pleasing to the eye while being user friendly, easily findable and still managable on the back-end.
My making websites using WordPress as CMS (Content Management Systeem) offers all of the above. With this CMS it is easy to expand funtionality, content, make technical or aesthetic changes, even being able to maintain the website yourself after build up.
WordPress offers a very wide range of (free) templates, which serve as a basic look for your website. These templates I use as a base to work from and tweak it in such a way that it fits the online profile you are looking for. There is something to be found for everyone and their specific needs.
Having started to make websites using WordPress since 2 years I have gained quite some experience and have been able to deliver beautiful websites to satisfied individuals and companies. Where I lack the experience or knowledge I collaborate with IT-Works, the IT company of my parents, to make sure I deliver the requested end-product.
With most of my projects I work based on a predetermined amount. After hearing about the clients wishes, and based on the estimated hours of work I need to make these happen, I make a contract offer containing all the discussed content and a cost ceiling. This offer will be based on my hourly rate of €40,- (excl. 21% taxes). if it is preferred to only bill with the hourly rate instead of a project price, this is ofcourse also possible. In that case you only pay for the time actually spend, no more no less.
The maintaining of the website can be done by the client him/herself by using WordPress, the CMS (Content Management Systeem) behind the website in which it is created, or can be outsourced to me, the contractor.
With the editor of WordPress you can add text, pictures, documents and much more. Using WordPress doesn’t come with any (extra) costs and with it you no longer have to depend on third parties for maintaining your website.
Depending on what you want/need for your website and the complexity of your content you might consider using a paid template for your website in WordPress. This adds on a lot of extra options and possibilities to make the website more to your liking. The additional possibilities will make the editing, and thus maintaining your website, more complex.
Outsourcing the maintenance of your website, partially or entirely, to me might be a great solution for someone who simply doesn’t have the time to do it or doesn’t have the knowledge and/or experience to do it. If you would like to outsource (parts of) the maintenance of your website to me you can simply contact me and deliver the possible content digitally. After I will ensure a quick placing/changing of the content. This can be to your website, but if requested it can also be put on Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.)
Ofcourse the outsourcing of maintenance can also mean changes in the structure and/or look of the website. The more technical side of things. For example adding an extra page and/or menu item, changing a particular color or font, or other changes such as these. Simply contact me about your wishes and I will ensure the quick processing of the clients wishes.
The costs of this service are € 40,- per hour (excl. 21% taxes). No fixed costs, no minimum amounts, but just paying for the work you have me do.
WordPress is the CMS (Content Management Systeem) behind the website in which I make my websites. When making a website fit to the clients needs a template is chosen and used for the basic look of the website. Besides this many plug-ins are added to make all the clients wishes possible.
In CMS management I offer to make sure all these plug-ins, templates and WordPress itself is updated when newer versions are available. This is a critical part in the safety of your website. When the upkeep is not regular and properly done, hackers will want to abuse this since leaks in your website will arise.
The costs of this service I offer in the shape of a yearly subscription. The price is € 60,- (excl. 21% taxes) for a year and in that year the client doesn’t have to think of keeping their website up to date. When the final date of the subscription approaches I contact the client and offer an extention. The client can decide every year to continue or stop this service.
SEO (search engine optimization) is very important for a website and especially for a company with a website. A website has to score high in and must be adapted to the algorythm of, for example, Google to appear at the first shown search results. Especially Google is important here since it receives 95% of all the online searches. One can’t underestimate the importance of a good position in the search results since surfers often only look at the first result page when they are looking for something. So the better you score at Google, the more potential clients will be able to find your website.
To help the client optimize their website I offer a SEO Starterspack with which I give the client the perfect set-up on their website to help optimalize their websites SEO. This starterspack offers a way to maintain a good SEO of your website with ease and a good overview to check up the websites situation:
The costs of this package is in the form of a one-time payment of € 80,- (excl. 21% taxes) after which the client will have the perfect set-up to start optimalizing their website with ease and overview.
