​About WordPress for Technophobes

​I specialise in helping solopreneurs and small business owners with ​defined WordPress projects at affordable prices.

​I've been using WordPress since the last millennium!  That means I've already traversed the learning curve, overcome the frustration and can set up your WordPress site from scratch, presenting you with an easy to use, mobile responsive (that means it looks as good on mobiles and tablets as it does on laptops and desktops!) site to your order in less time than you ever thought possible.

And yes, back in the mists of time, I, too, thought it would be easier just to pay a platform to do all the design and tech stuff so I could focus on spreading the word about my healing therapies and energy tools.  

​How's that working out for you?   Not so well for me.  The platform wasn't mine, they were more interested in promoting themselves than my website - and I had no real control.  

​Have you tried Weebly or Wix?  I've tried them both and they may be a good place to start, if you have no web presence or experience at all. Those two sites have easy drag and drop interfaces and may well be what you're looking for.  You could be up and running in half an hour or so.  The main drawback is that the free version is a sub site of their own, so your web presence may look like this: [your site name].weebly/wix.com - although you ​can​ buy a site name on both platforms.​​​

​In the end, I kept knocking against limitations ​to what I wanted to do and decided to go for WordPress instead.  Glad I did. There is no limit to what can be done with WordPress, particularly if you know how to code (which I do!).

​If you're frustrated with the limitations of the platform you're currently using - or have no web presence at all! - contact me here or click the menu item above and lets talk about your vision of a website that serves you, your ​clients and your purpose in the world.
