WordPress Technical Support
Ah, WordPress! It’s a great system for building websites and blogs but it can give you more than a headache if you’re not into the techie side of it. If you’re a freelancer, blogger or the owner of a small business and you find yourself struggling to make sense of WordPress, why not hire us to carry out the work you can’t do yourself?
We’re based in the UK and available for ad-hoc work from Monday to Friday during normal business hours. If you regularly want work doing, and would like preferential treatment, sign up for one of our website care plans.
We can help you with many technical aspects of your WordPress website, such as:
- Updating the core files, plugins and themes
- Working with plugins – researching, installing, setting up, updating, deleting
- Installing and setting up a theme for the first time
- Creating contact forms
- Adding new pages (without content)
- Resizing and/or uploading/deleting images
- Working with fonts – including changing colour, size and style
- Making your website load faster
- Changing the colour and/or styling of hyperlinks
- Setting up sidebars
- Adding content to the footer
- Installing social media buttons
- Adding or deleting users
- Testing your site for resource-hogging plugins
- Importing/exporting content
- Adding Google Analytics code
WordPress Website Updates
An out of date website won’t impress potential customers. We can make editorial changes to your website to keep it up to date and relevant.
This service is similar to the technical support one listed above, but differs because it focuses on visible content. It covers things like:
- Adding or removing content
- Changing headlines
- Fixing spelling mistakes
- Removing broken links from your content
- Adding links to your content
- Updating your business address, phone number etc
One-to-one WordPress coaching/training if you live in or around Manchester, or over the phone/Skype if you don’t.
The idea of this service is to help you make sense of the stuff you don’t understand. We’ve got lots of tutorials available here, but if you want a more hands-on approach or have lots of questions to ask, this coaching could be for you.
During the session, we’ll go through your pain-points to try and find solutions that work for you. To get it right, we’ll need to ask you lots of questions, so be prepared!
For in-person coaching/training sessions, if you work from home, we usually suggest meeting in a neutral location such as a coffee shop or co-working space. If you have an office, we’re happy to come to you.
Search Engine Optimisation
For your website or blog to rank in search engines, it will need to be well optimised.
We provide a service that takes care of on-site SEO. We’ll make sure you have keywords in the right places and you’re publishing content that attracts the people looking for your services. We’ll fix indexing issues and make sure your pages are being picked up and indexed by Google.
Blogging is a great way to attract more visitors to your website but it’s not for everybody.
We can help you in one of two ways. The first is doing everything for you. This means brainstorming ideas, creating content, adding it to your site and getting it ready for publication.
The second option: you create the content and we’ll do the rest – find images, format your post, add SEO tags, add links to your other pages and schedule it for publication.
Light webmastering duties such as setting up hosting, buying domain names, changing nameservers and troubleshooting server and website problems.
The support services here start at £40 per for the first hour then £10 per 15 minutes increment.
We’re happy to quote you an expected price before starting work.
