By converting to WordPress you will have a dynamic website with a built-in Content Management System.  WordPress has thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine.  Everything from simple websites, to blogs, to complex portals and enterprise websites, and even applications, are built with WordPress.

Most websites can be converted to WordPress for $950.  We convert all of your content, pictures, pdf’s, videos, forms, social media links, etc.  And of course, the converted WordPress website will be ready for SEO work and includes responsive web design for multiple platforms including smart phones and tablets.  If you would like to convert to WordPress as a DIY, we suggest you purchase the Enfold Theme at Themeforest.

Convert to WordPress – Simplicity

Skagit Marketing can train you and/or your staff on using the WordPress dashboard.  This will allow your business to quickly edit and update content keeping your website dynamic.

Convert to WordPress – Flexibility

WordPress has a unique flexibility in that it combines simplicity for users with an easy-to-use content management system dashboard AND under-the-hood complexity for developers.  With WordPress, you can convert pretty much any type of website you want: a personal blog or personal website, a photoblog, a small business website, a corporate website, a professional portfolio, a government website, a magazine or news website or an online community.

Convert to WordPress – Easy to Publish Content

If you already know how to use MS Word or a similar program, creating content with WordPress will be easy for you.  Within minutes, you can create a page for your website or a blog post, add a picture, format the content and then click publish – your content is live and online.  Need to make an update?  Just edit the page or post and click update.

Convert to WordPress – Publishing Tools

Want to create a draft and share it with your colleagues for editing – no problem.  Would you like to schedule the exact time your new page or post goes online – easy.  Need to secure posts and pages with a password – it’s a snap.

Convert to WordPress – User Management

There are five levels of users – you choose the level as you add the users:  Administrators (manage the site), Editors (work with content), Authors – Contributors (write the content), and Subscribers (part of your community).

Convert to WordPress – Media Management

Images and graphics are second to content when it comes to what sets your website apart from other websites. WordPress allows you to quickly and easily upload images and media such as PDF’s.  You can use the WordPress uploader or just drag and drop.  We have a couple of favorite image gallery plugins we like to use which makes adding photo galleries a breeze.

Convert to WordPress – Plugins

Plug-ins allows for limitless options for your website to grow.  You can visit the WordPress plugin directory for thousands of plugins.  We often add plugins for more complete image galleries, forms that go beyond the simple contact form, social networking, forums, social media widgets, spam protection, event calendars and, of course, plugins that allow us and you to integrate search engine optimization.  See the shaded box on the bottom of this page?  That was easy to do thanks to the Drop Shadow Boxes plugin.

Convert To WordPress – Own Your Content

Using WordPress means no one has access to your content.  You own your content – your website with all of the content and data.  If you are using Google’s Blogger, take a minute to check out their terms of service:

When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for a business listing you have added to Google Maps). Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Also, in some of our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.
