WORDPRESS MAY SOUND EASY, BUT IT ISN’T FOR SOME PEOPLE
You can hire us to make WordPress changes you need – but are unable to make for yourself.
Viewers judge websites with better design aesthetic as more competent, more respected, and trustworthy. We equate “Look” and site appearance with a willingness to take care of people. Attractive design increases people’s perceptions of likability, competence, and trustworthiness. People assume well-designed sites are intelligent and good. Design infers website content is capable, reliable and amiable. Design transforms how smart people think you are at first impression. The feeling of being warm and approachable is completely within our control.

There is no instruction manual or accreditation of acceptable WordPress user experience. One of our main jobs is removing subconscious irritations that mess up good first impressions. We’ve found the three key factors that ruin good user experiences are:
- Slow pages.
