nullChoosing WordPress for your Content Management System (CMS) puts you in good company with other leading organizations around the world. MTV News, BBC America, Facebook and Sony are just some of the companies that have chosen it as their platform. WordPress is used by nearly 60 percent of all the websites where its Content Management System (CMS) is confirmed, which is about 32 percent of all websites.

Are You Looking for a New Website or a Redesigned Website?

WordPress web design comes in two flavors – new WordPress design and redesigned WordPress websites.

When you team up with AKEA, we will walk you through our six-step process to help you determine what you need; whether it’s a new site from scratch, an existing site to convert to WordPress, or a WordPress site that we can refresh and add new features with WordPress plugins.

AKEA’s Web Design Process

Our process includes the following steps: Discovery, Planning, Web Design, Web Development, Website Launch and Maintenance.

We’ll also talk about making your website accessible and keeping up with accessibility compliance, as a possibility to open your site to all users.

By going through these steps together, we confirm your goals, talk through strategy and develop the site together.

Create a New Website

There are many reasons why so many businesses are turning to WordPress. There are plenty of templates and plugins that have already been developed, which can cut down on cost and time in the development stages. This also makes adding additional pages simple.

When developing a new site, the benefits of WordPress are overwhelming, which is why so many developers recommend it. Whatever WordPress framework that is chosen, there’s a toolkit to help you as you build your website.

Redesign on WordPress

Maybe you have an existing website that was built on a different platform. You may think you’ll have to start over. But before you start from scratch, let our team help you convert your existing site onto the WordPress platform.

Our team can take your existing website and build it on WordPress. We can also take an existing WordPress website and upgrade it to a new, fresh WordPress platform and give you tools to take control of your site.

AKEA Approved WordPress Plugins

WordPress is a powerful platform with an enormous developer community. The benefit to you is that in most cases, there is not a lot of custom development necessary. If you’re in need of specific support such as a recipe database, a trouble-ticket manager, a directory of businesses, or a web calendar that integrates with services like Google Calendar, then there is probably already a solution available. Over the years, developers have created more than 50,000 custom plugins to provide for many different needs. As a result, there is rarely a need for custom software, which can be very costly to develop and maintain.

AKEA has already vetted many plugins, which means we’re prepared to make recommendations on the best options.
