WordPress: The Perfect Content Management System (CMS) for Small Business Sites

I specialise in designing websites built on the WordPress builder platform for Mackay small businesses and non-profits. WordPress is the world’s most popular content management system. Large organisations, including the White House, Sony Music and Disney use it.

A content management system or CMS allows you to place and organise content on your website. Content can include many things, but words and pictures are the two most common forms of content. WordPress allows you to arrange this content:

Into separate pages

Within each page

Why do I recommend WordPress? There are many reasons to use WordPress, but the main one is that it allows for virtually limitless functionality for your website at very affordable prices. For more, see Why WordPress?

Think of WordPress as a frame for a house. It provides a framework for your website in the same way as the framework for a house.

You still want to make it yours in the way that it:

Looks (design)

Functions (development)

We look after your needs in both design and development.

How Much Does It All Cost in Mackay?

After discussing your website needs, I provide you with a tailored quote. However, I keep my design fees at an affordable level as you can see from these examples. I can create a blog, a website for a service-based business or an e-commerce website.
