WordPress Web Design FAQs
- What is WordPress?
WordPress is a website-building software and CMS widely used to publish many websites currently on the internet. It is free and open-source, but there are specific pros and cons of using WordPress that you will want to consider before choosing it as the foundation of your website.
- What is a WordPress theme?
A WordPress site uses what is called a “theme”. This is the base that the front-end development of your WordPress website design starts from. WordPress developers use these custom themes to build your website.
Often, the theme acts only as a starting point, and the developer will redesign the theme to align with your brand identity, make the UX design (user-experience design) more user-friendly, and add custom code such as CSS to make the website function the way you expect it to.
- What is a WordPress Plugin?
WordPress has many plugins that add different elements to your website including interactive elements, integrations for different systems and applications, and e-commerce functionality, such as WooCommerce and Shopify. WordPress plugins are integral to your website development and help your website function better on the WordPress platform.
- What is a CMS (Content Management System)?
A CMS (content management system) is what is used to manage, store, and publish the digital content of your website. This includes the pages, posts, media (graphics, images, pictures, audio, and videos), and the files of backend code that makes it all work.
- How do I choose the right CMS for my website?
In choosing between WordPress vs. HubSpot CMS for your website, consider and compare these factors as they apply to each of them:
- Ease of Use
- Security (including SSL certificates, firewalls, and threat monitoring)
- Updates Required (how frequently and how are updates installed?)
- Analytics (measuring performance)
- How much does it cost to build a website?
The cost to build a website depends on variables such as the purpose of the website, the amount of content, features of the site, and hosting. You could invest as little as $3,000 or up to $50,000 or more, depending on just what you need your website to do. Click here to see some price comparisons.
Or, even better, request a consultation to get an estimate based on a customized solution based on exactly what you need.
- What is the process for building a website?
While some companies might do things differently, our web design process includes the following phases:
- Kick-Off Phase, which includes an initial meeting and information gathering
- Strategy Phase, including the planning of SEO keywords, messaging, lead generation, navigation, etc.
- Design Phase, where you’ll see a mockup of the site, including graphics, photos, colors, and fonts.
- Development Phase, which is where the website is actually built
- Beta-Testing Phase, where you see the site and have the chance to review both the content and functionality
- Launch Phase, when the website goes live to the world
- Drive Traffic Phase, which includes strategies for getting people to find your new website
- How long does it take to build a website?
The length of time it takes to build a website is very dependent on the individual project and can vary from 4 weeks up to 12 weeks or more, depending on the specific details of the website. There are many phases to the web design process, and the degree of complexity of each can affect the overall time required for completion.
- Why is Good Web Design Important?
The impact of good web design is such that it can directly affect the results you get from your website. Web design affects user perception of your company. It affects your ability to attract the right audience. It has an impact on how customers experience your company. And it can affect your conversions, sales, and bottom line.
- What does a Web Designer do?
A web designer’s job is to envision and plan a strong web presence that will help companies stand out from their competition, attract the right website visitors, and turn those visitors into customers, clients, and patients. They plan out how a website should look and function to obtain the best results.
- What is the difference between Web Design and Web Development?
Web Design is how a website looks and functions, with both the company’s and the user’s goals in mind. Colors, fonts, headers, and images are part of web design, but so is formatting, navigation, next steps, and calls to action. Everything about web design affects the user experience and must be considered through that UX lens.
Think of it this way: the web designer is the architect who plans how a house will look taking into consideration how it will be used, while the web developer is the contractor who actually builds the house.
- How do I choose a Web Design Company?
You have a lot of options when it comes to choosing a web design company. There are many talented web designers out there, but you want a company that is the best fit for you and your specific needs. Some things to consider in making your choice include:
- Skill, Knowledge, and Experience as evidenced in their portfolio of work, reviews and testimonials, as well as their own website.
- Industries They’re Experienced With … have they worked with companies similar to yours or within industries similar to yours? And do they have experience with a variety of industries?
- Passion and Creativity are important because you don’t want your website to look like a clone of someone else’s.
- Professional Process … if they don’t have one, it might be a warning sign.
- Communication is a major determining factor when choosing a web design company. Make sure that their communication style fits yours and ask questions so you know what to expect regarding project status updates and follow up.
