"Meredith and her team did a fantastic job rebuilding my existing WordPress site. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again or to recommend her to anyone looking for a similar project."
In response to the client’s need for a WordPress expert, initially for migrating, implementing, and customizing an existing WordPress site to a new template, our project evolved into building a new website from scratch. Here’s an overview of the project:
Assessment and Planning: We began by assessing the client’s requirements and their existing WordPress site. After careful consideration, it was determined that a new approach was necessary to meet the client’s goals effectively.
New Website Strategy: Understanding the client’s objectives and preferences, we formulated a comprehensive strategy to build a new website from the ground up. This strategy encompassed design, functionality, user experience, and technical implementation.
Design and Customization: With a blank canvas, we initiated the design phase. Based on the client’s vision, industry best practices, and modern trends, we conceptualized a fresh design that aligned with their brand identity and objectives.
Content Migration: If applicable, we migrated relevant content from the existing website to the new one. This ensured a smooth transition of essential information while adapting it to fit seamlessly within the new design and structure.
WordPress Development: Leveraging our WordPress expertise, we developed the new website using a customized theme. This involved implementing custom features, ensuring responsiveness, and optimizing performance.
Custom Features: Depending on the client’s needs, we integrated custom features and functionalities that enhanced user engagement, user interface, and overall site performance.
User Experience Focus: We prioritized user experience throughout the development process. Intuitive navigation, clear call-to-actions, and well-structured content were meticulously designed to provide visitors with a seamless experience.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO): Implementing SEO best practices, we optimized the website’s structure, content, and metadata to ensure it was search engine-friendly and poised to attract organic traffic.
Testing and Quality Assurance: Testing was conducted to ensure the website’s functionality, compatibility, and responsiveness across various devices and browsers.
Client Collaboration: We collaborated closely with the client, seeking feedback and incorporating their input at key stages of development to ensure the final product aligned with their vision.
Results: The outcome was a new website built from scratch that surpassed the client’s initial expectations. By pivoting from the original template migration plan, we were able to create a website that was tailor-made to their needs and aspirations.
In summary, our project successfully evolved from a template migration to a new website construction. By strategically designing, developing, and refining the website, we achieved a digital platform that exceeded the client’s goals and delivered a unique online presence that aligned seamlessly with their brand and objectives.
