Case study

WordPress design and development for a global non-profit

We worked with Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) to give them more control over their content, a consistent brand experience, lower bounce rates and faster site speeds.

“Bounce rates have halved and downloads have doubled”

The WordPress you love, but better

Intuitive, robust content management

If you’ve used WordPress in the past, you might be familiar with the way in which your content can be scattered and buried in the admin interface.

Sometimes you have to go to many different, seemingly random, places to edit the content for a single page.

At Highrise Digital we work hard to ensure that your website content is easy to manage (it’s called a Content Management System after all!).

We do this by logically structuring the data so that it’s where you expect it to be. Your content will be reusable where necessary, saving the time and frustration of duplicate content.

The need for speed

No one wants to use or edit a slow, clunky website. Users, content editors and search engines all love fast websites.

By building websites from the ground up, we eliminate the bloat caused by a reliance on plugins. Plugins have their place, but, where possible we try to find the most lightweight, streamlined solution.

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.

With a deep understanding of WordPress fundamentals, we build things the “WordPress Way” and can solve the problems that others can’t.

We're a bit...different...

We’re not like the WordPress agencies who you’ve worked with in the past. At Highrise Digital we:

  • Take time to understand your goals and objectives
  • Will push back if we think there’s a better way
  • Take project management seriously
  • Have a deep understanding of WordPress – we don’t have to rely on off-the-shelf solutions
  • Are active in the WordPress community as organisers, speakers and mentors
  • Value long-term relationships
