Why WordPress?

WordPress is open source software that is used by around 25% of websites worldwide. This means that anyone can see and work on the code, so there are lots of designs and plugins (extra bits of software) that can make your site more attractive and functional.

However, all this choice can be very confusing for those who have little experience - so this is where Write Expression comes in.

  • If you need a website but can't or don't want to spend time building and maintaining it, we can take the work off your shoulders.
  • If you know a bit about WordPress but just need some help with setting up before maintaining it yourself, we can help with the initial build.
Building the site

Kim Winter, Director of Write Expression, is a textile artist herself. So she understands the frustrations of creative people who feel bamboozled by technical jargon - and tries to make it as easy and painless as possible to create a website that shows their work at its best.

Kim will work with you to create your site, starting with an initial consultation to talk about the structure and design. Building the website is actually the last stage of the process - the most important part is to get your content right. Who is your website aimed at? What do you want them to do when they visit your site? How easy is it for them to do this?

Training, support and maintenance

After building your site, Kim will write a personalised step-by-step guide for you on how to update each page. Or if you prefer face to face training where you take your own notes, she can arrange that instead.

She also provides two months of free online support after your website goes live, so you can get extra help while you are learning to update it yourself.

For your peace of mind, Kim also offers an annual maintenance package, so you can relax knowing that your site will be kept up to date with the latest software upgrades.
