Of all the hundreds of web design platforms and portals out there in digital space, WordPress has become the market leader and go-to for open source cyber magic. This is because of its versatility, its ease of use, its utility, and the massive range of plug-ins available. With a wide range of themes, we can adapt it to any type or size of business.

WordPress is rich with both paid and free plug-ins which help your website to run more smoothly and integrate some features to help user experience and speed. Our experts know their way around these plug-ins and can advise on suitability and cost for your project.
Along with Ahrefs, probably the world’s most well-known WordPress management system, Yoast is the go-to application to use with a WordPress site for SEO optimization. It lets the user explore competitors, audit your website, research keywords and backlinks. We use these tools constantly to monitor and hone your site.
We use a further range of tools to build and help keep your site running well. When planning your site, Slickplan and Wireframe CC are used. For migration, Screaming Frog, Really Simple SSL, and Redirection for 301 redirects. For domain issues, we use BustAName, Namechk.com, MXtoolbox, DNSCheck, and others. For themes, we use Divi, Theme Monster and Child Theme Creator – with Divi Soup and layout packs. We also have expertise in Image smushing, SERPS tools, Siteliner, TinyPNG and Favicon.
We will take your project through each stage using a checklist of items. We start with buying your domain, buying your hosting, redirecting your domain name services, and creating your email addresses. We then install WordPress and organize passwords, users, and review your settings. After this we set permalinks and choose themes, install plugins and Google integration. We plan the site structure and create posts and install widgets.
Digital Martians caters for the technically able, as well as the technically challenged. We can do everything that needs doing on your site – or we can dive in to help when you are out of your depth with something. Many clients like to add pages or customize their site as it becomes more popular and they get a feel for their customers and their expectations. Adding a blog, and other posts is something we can guide you through as you become more confident and able with WordPress and the plugins.
