Denton Website Design using WordPress

You have found the first website business in Denton, Texas, that ever specialized and still specializes in wordpress websites. These sites are designed for ease of use, and being turned over to customers so they can run the site themselves. Nothing is ever held hostage, and all files are yours. It’s not magic! It’s wordpress for those who demand quality and functionality from their sites.

I do sites for all purposes. And as I always say, and as it applies to this crop of University students here in Denton, Texas, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him / her think!” Your professors are not telling you what you need to know to get a job – bottom line. And that’s if you actually are taught by professors! Typically, in the corporate education world (where educational institutions are actually now churning corporate machines), you are taught by adjuncts, you are passed through without knowing what you need to know, and you are not a threat to anyone in your professional field (including those adjuncts) upon graduation. ONE OF THE THINGS they don’t tell you is that you need a professional online presence, and you need it by the time you begin your third year of college (sooner is even better). Feel Free To Think!

I hear horror stories from established businesses and professionals about their websites being held hostage, hacked, ineffective and expensive. And that’s just in Denton, Texas! You think creating a site and doing it yourself is the way to go? All I can say to that is, “If you think a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an amateur!” Denton businesses and professionals are typically way behind the curve when it comes to attractive, professional, functional websites that generate business. Heck! Some of them even still use print advertising! Imagine that? Talk about the most expensive ROI in the world? try print advertising!

 

YouTube Videos A Powerful Force for Traffic and Information

denton texas website design and content

I have noticed a marked increase in traffic flow to-and-from YouTube in the last eighteen months, and if you consider everyone’s ability to stream video I think the reason is obvious. We can finally watch video without those frustrating pauses and glitch loading symbols popping up every few seconds!

Not only are YouTube videos a huge bonus to your traffic, video is finally emerging as the most powerful force to get your information, about products, or whatever it is you’re about, out to the masses in the most informative way possible.

This revolution is well underway, but beware, bad video is like a horrible local auto, or carpet, or plumber commercial; people will turn away like the final second of a car crash. And they won’t come back if they don’t have to.

Above  is a video I recently completed for Richard Davis, a professor at the University of North Texas, for his website Richard Davis Sculpture.

Not only do videos inform, they are also a valuable design element, and should always say something that your words – YOUR CONTENT – does not say. If they are creatively entertaining, you will be rewarded even more.

Pay Attention to Your Content and New Social Media Like Google+

Denton Texas Website Building Website Hosting and WordPress Websites for Students and Artists

Once you have your WordPress site up and running, and are getting used to all the controls behind the scene, don’t forget to add content! Add content all the time, as long as it about, or related to the subject the site is about. Also remember that people from many different walks of life will find you if you are interesting, and write about interesting things! It’s not really magic. It is work though.

And when it comes to new social media, and utilizing that, you are well advised to pay attention to Google+ and make that part of your regularly scheduled social media day. Again, it’s fun and it’s work. Google+ is slowly gaining organic momentum in the social realm, and it’s hard to bet against the folks at Google. Keep your eyes on them, and if you have your website, make sure you take the time to get on Google+ and create your communities and circles using your business name, or names related to what your website is all about.
