Is your website platform WordPress, Joomla or HTML? It is important for you to know, especially when you hire a web designer.
When I started my first online business in 1990 the world wide web was in its infancy and it all seemed like VooDoo to me. I hired several “experts” for the first ten years. The cost of my first website was $75,000. I was charged for every insertion whether it be a photo, text, product and more once the website, BogeysandBirdies.com was launched.
From 1990 to 2000 I’d spent over $500,000.00 on “experts” – “expert web developers”, “expert marketers”, “expert search engine optimization (SEO) specialists” and graphic designers. I still never had a website that represented me, my vision, the layout I wanted and this list goes on.
I had enough and decided it was time for me to learn how to do it myself. I took courses, did lots of research, read a lot and realized those “experts” were all about taking my money because they knew I didn’t know how to do it myself. I vowed that when I started my web design company, I would never take advantage of anyone no matter what. That’s why my company, DivaBusinessSolutions.com offers a 100% money back guarantee.
Why am I telling you this? I build all of my clients’ sites in WordPress. I ensure that all the necessary components are installed and working properly. I’ve tried and tested on my own websites all of the components I incorporate and/or recommend to my clients. In order to do that, I’ve partnered with several WordPress PlugIn Developers who I know, like and trust.
When I turn a client’s website over to them, I train them on how to operate their website. If they are not technical, I offer a monthly package at very reasonable rates to keep the client’s site up to date and functioning properly.
