Jagmedia Specializes in WordPress Website Design

Jagmedia loves creating WordPress Websites for our Clients. We’ve been using it for close to a decade and that’s before it was deemed Top Platform in the World by Forbes Magazine!

Did you know that over 75 million websites are built using WordPress? That’s according to the Forbes article* from 2017 – plus it’s used by 25% of the world’s websites including BBC, The New Yorker and Forbes.

One of the many great things about the platform besides it’s widespread use, is that it keeps getting better every year (it began in 2003) and continually offering more functionality. The CMS (content management system) allows endusers like my clients to update their  websites without coding. Of course, there is a learning curve to it – it  doesn’t happen overnight, that’s why we  offer tutorials: both one on one at our Culver City office and online tutorials. Our tutorials are for clients and anyone else wanting to learn WordPress.

What’s the #1 Website Question I Get Asked the Most?

What’s the #1 Website Question I Get Asked the Most?

How long does it take to create a website?

The answer is this: it really depends on you and your situation and – us working together. Each person and each client of mine is unique and their needs are unique as well as the overall process.

When I create websites, they are custom designed. It’s not a cookie cutter approach to creating your website. I take a fluid and organic approach that addresses each person’s individual needs and timing. Sometimes it can be quick although that’s more of a unicorn client and website.

It can also take a super long time, which is another unicorn, especially when people have things happen in life. Whether it’s a health issue, family member, perhaps there’s unexpected out-of-town trips, you’re just in a super busy or even disorganized.

With that being said, putting your website on the back burner of priorities can sabotage your business. Establishing the development of your website as a priority really is a journey – and yes, you’re the one on it it! All emergencies aside, introducing it as part of your regular schedule will help to move it all forward. And it is a process it’s it’s a two-way street I don’t work in a vacuum because it doesn’t serve my clients in the best possible way.  I can’t make someone give me text that wants to write it  own their own or send me photos they want to use; you get the picture, right?

Much of it is a process of discovery about yourself and your business, especially if it’s a first-time website; however, even with a second or third generation website, discovery is involved, as to how one has evolved in their business, what’s changed and other factors.

If you are thinking about a new website for your business or you’re nextgen website, it’s worth scheduling a call and discussing the feasibility of it by establishing your goals and timing, plus to see if it’s a fit for both of us. I’m inviting you to schedule a thirty minute call with me. You can take advantage of it by filling out my form below and clicking the button.

3 Key Reasons to Use the WordPress Platform for Your Website

3 Key Reasons to Use the WordPress Platform for Your Website

You might be asking, “Why use WordPress?” Great question! These are the 3 key reasons to use WordPress  as the platform for your website:

1- Edit Your Own Website
2- SEO Competitive (Search Engine Optimization)
3- Flexible Platform & Legacy

First things first, in case you’re unfamiliar with WordPress. It’s the major platform originally created  for blogging and grew in popularity over the years, partly as a result of the ability to create a full fledged website with programming (that’s essentially what a Content Management System does, also known as CMS). Another popular platform is Blogger, which started around the same time as WordPress and was bought by Google a few years ago.

Blogger is a very simple blog platform that’s easy to ramp up, however does not have the full bodied capabilities that a WordPress site contains, kind of like a merlot in comparison to a cabernet.

As Creative Director of Jagmedia, I’ve been urging clients to use the WordPress platform for over 5 years.  This is our brand new website (as of 2014) that  is created using the WordPress Platform (finally… sometimes us designers take too long to update our own sites).

The ability to edit your own website is one of the biggest advantages to using WordPress. It’s something that many people wanted in past years – and while there were some CMS platforms that allowed for this, some were just plain clunky and limited.  Our clients utilizing WordPress have the ability to edit any exiting pages and their content, whether it’s text, photos, graphics and/or videos, in addition to adding new pages and blog posts.  This article is an example of a blog post. An example of a page is Jagmedia’s About Us page.

Other pluses are the ability to create various levels of  users with different levels of administrative access. For example, you may have  a freelance writer that you only want to have access to create a new page, but not any of the administrative functions.  That level of access is created by a person designated with overall administrative access to the site.

When it comes to Search Engine Optimization, it is a crucial part of any website and can not be stressed enough! WordPress is very competitive for SEO, namely with it’s ease of use with adding text just about anywhere to the site, along with page and photo titles and alt tags (more on this in a future post). There are various plugins (think extra features) that can help to automate some of the SEO process, however,  you still  have to work it, so make sure to keep that in mind.

If you’re wondering, “what the heck is a flexible platform and why does it matter? Another great question. WordPress is an open source platform, meaning that many developers have the ability to add useful features and update the programming code structure. It can be a caveat too, as there are some plugins (additional functionality for a specific purpose) that cause conflicts, however, that is minor in comparison to the pluses. WordPress has been around since 2003 and developed for free by a group of developers  and is free to use. The legacy of WordPress is that it’s been around for a long time and will continue to be around for even longer.

In addition, WordPress has amazing e-commerce capabilities. Jagmedia used the Woo Commerce plugin for developing an online boutique for a brick and mortar store in the Silver Lake neighborhood in Los Angeles.

A WordPress Website is a scaleable solution  that can be ramped up without much customization and updated in the future with a new theme for a more custom look, plus a responsive theme that works with mobile devices, plus more features such as e-commerce.

If you want  a customized website that reflects your company’s brand, that’s where a design studio such as  Jagmedia comes in to create your WordPress website. The photo at top has some examples of our clients websites, created using, you guessed it, WordPress! Email Jagmedia for a Complimentary 30 Minute WordPress Consultation.
