Why WordPress

At Sayenko Design we’ve long realized the benefits of WordPress for web development. That’s why in 2009 we made the decision to specialize in the platform exclusively. What separates WordPress from other web development solutions is its streamlined and modular system that runs on ‘themes’. Our design development team has proven expertise in crafting custom WordPress themes for all types of businesses and organizations. 

  • Customizable – WordPress websites run on themes that are responsive and mobile friendly. These themes can be customized for design, architecture, appearance and functionality.

  • Scalable – An open-source platform, WordPress is a complete solution out of the box for mom and pop shops to use, and robust enough to scale for large sites from major brands like the BBC, Sony, Disney, and Microsoft.

  • Simple Backend – WordPress operates on a streamlined backend interface. Most content is managed through simple text builders that operate like word documents, and don’t require HTML knowledge to use.

  • Plugins – Similar to apps on a smartphone, WordPress runs thousands of plugins from third party developers that add features.

  • SEO Friendly – WordPress allows for easy changes to metadata and URL slugs, in addition to creating optimized website architecture that makes it easier for Google and other search engines to find your pages and content.

Have a WordPress Development Question?

How do I maintain my WordPress website?2021-05-22T00:18:42+00:00

We offer WordPress maintenance for our client’s websites. The focus is on WordPress security. We perform critical software updates (WordPress + Plugins) by our development team on a monthly basis in a staging environment (a copy of the live website). Once tested for theme compatibility we push those updates to production (the live website). See our full list of WordPress maintenance deliverables.

Will my website be Responsive?2019-11-02T01:01:35+00:00

Yes, all the websites we build are responsive in nature. We go the extra step by customizing the mobile experience – prioritizing above the fold content to 1-2 focused areas and improve the call to action placement, making sure it’s not buried at the bottom.

How will you build my website? Altering a template? Building a custom theme from scratch?2019-11-02T00:56:29+00:00

We build custom WordPress themes. If you have a limited budget of around $10,000 we do utilize a pre-built theme to accommodate budget constraints. See our in-depth article on The Difference Between Custom WordPress Theme vs. Template.

Can we migrate our current content?2019-12-03T20:51:11+00:00

In most cases, yes. However, if your site is using shortcodes it will have to be a manual process, which is more time-consuming.
