That low barrier of entry and mass appeal is exactly what should make a business consider using WordPress for the backend. And the fact that your competitors may be using something less capable, more complex (and more expensive) should also grab your attention. If it takes them longer and costs them more, doesn’t that give YOU a competitive advantage, at least in regards to your online marketing?
Maxwell Sydney Design Group has had the privilege of working with Eileen “Irish” Hafke and her firm Design Matters Studio. Irish designs custom kitchens, baths and interiors for high end properties in Florida. I first met Irish during a presentation I was giving on New Media Marketing in Orlando. Since that time our conversations about her business have turned into work on her corporate identity, a magazine ad and a website.
We don’t have a price list on this website nor can we provide a price to a customer without consultation. And I suggest any web design company that does is a company to run away from. All businesses are different and have different needs. So are their marketing efforts. Sure I could sell someone a package with default content, features and pages to reach a certain page count, but would that package meet their needs, represent their brand, or generate additional customers and revenue for their business?
Maxwell Sydney Design Group has worked with CollegeWatchStore.com since before it opened. We developed a customized Joomla/VirtueMart e-commerce solution, uploaded their product catalog, and set-up their web hosting and security platform.
