BETTER WORDPRESS WEBSITES FOR UK BUSINESSES

Specialising in WordPress – it’s what we do

We’re a small WordPress agency who are focused 100% on the WordPress platform. We have a deep knowledge of the inner workings of WordPress and we use that knowledge to build sites that perfectly match your business’s needs.

By understanding the WordPress fundamentals, we can build things the “WordPress Way” and solve the technical problems that others can’t.

What does that mean for you?

As your digital agency partner, we’ll provide the best-in-class advice, development and support that your business needs to thrive online.

Why work with us?

Direct access to the experts

Unlike bigger agencies, we don’t hide our experts under layers of management and bureaucracy. You’ll be talking directly to the people involved in solving problems and implementing solutions.

To us, you’re not just another ‘account’ – we’re small, so all of our clients matter.

Long-term partnerships

We don’t churn out hundreds of sites a year. We work closely with a small number of valued clients to produce excellent work. There’s no ‘cookie cutter’ or ‘production line’ development here.

Our relationships are long-term, not ‘fire-and-forget’. They are built on mutual respect, shared goals and valued expertise, on both sides.

Intuitive, robust content management

We don’t try to shoehorn your content into pre-built systems. We take a content-first, goal-based approach to WordPress development.

Logically structuring the data so that it’s where you expect it to be – your content will be reusable where necessary, saving time and reducing frustration. It’s called a ‘content management system’ after all.

A marketing platform built for growth

Your business will change and so will the demands placed on your website.

By investing in the future, and making your site robust and extensible, we ensure that your site can handle new features, functionality and integrations.

Page speeds that Google will love

Conversion rates, user engagement and search rankings are all harmed by slow loading pages.

By building from the ground up, we develop websites that will help you hit your performance targets.

Talk: How to write extensible WordPress code

September 20, 2018

I recently presented a talk to the WordPress Cheltenham meet-up group about how to write extensible WordPress code. Watch the video and view the slides in this post.
