WordPress Design and Development


What is WordPress?

wordpress-calgaryWordPress is a leading open source Content Management System (CMS) accounting for 14.5% of the world’s top 1 million websites. Lightweight and powerful, WordPress has many prebuilt plugins, and an active community of developers world wide who support its continued growth.

Originally designed as a blogging framework the WordPress community quickly expanded its technical capabilities and it is now promoted internationally as a full web solution. This includes community, e-commerce, portfolio, and blog-based websites.

Additionally, WordPress boasts several SEO benefits including quick loading times, advanced SEO plugins and social sharing features.

Template WordPress Websites

Even for small businesses having a website is becoming increasingly important. Your customers are online, they are searching for your products and services and you cannot afford to be missing the boat. Template websites are a great introductory option for businesses with a small budget as they are predesigned and programmed. Since much of the ground work has already been laid, templates are typically 50% – 75% less than a custom designed website and can be completed (start-to-finish) in as little as one week.

Don’t let the word “template” get you down. Many of our clients have turned inexpensive template websites into money making machines. Now that I think of it here are a few that are doing extremely well.

WordPress Blog Design

On the web content is king. Bloggers are becoming the world’s journalists, thought leaders and torch carriers. Take for example SEOMoz, Southwest Airlines and 37 Signals whose blogs have amassed thousands of RSS subscribers, hundreds of millions of views, and an immeasurable amount of brand awareness and mind share within their respective markets.

No problemo. WordPress blogs can find a home on almost any platform.

Custom WordPress Websites

Building a custom website is a bit like building a house. The process always starts with the blueprint (sitemap) to establish what rooms will go where? Once you have an approved blueprint you send it to an architect to design the exterior features that will make the home unique (website design). After the design is approved it is then turned over to the construction crew to build the framework that will support the structure (website development). After the house is built and the plumbing is installed the builder tests the outlets and water lines (development testing).

Additional Benefits To Working With Inbound Interactive

In the last 5 years our team has built hundreds of WordPress websites and blogs for businesses across North America. In addition to our development skills we also provide industry leading training and documentation; we employ SEO best practices for every website we build; and we install the essential analytics tools.

Staying Fresh after the Freshness update


Online marketing is an ever evolving beast! Every time I sit down to write a blog post I’m compeled to lead it with “Times, they be a changing”, and as you may have already guessed this post will be no different.

Times They Be A Changin’

Google has just implemented an algorithm update called the “Freshness Update”. The Freshness Update now displays “fresher” search results or more specifically results that have been published within days, hours, or even minutes of you searching them. The search results most effected by the Freshness update are celebrities, tv shows, sports related keywords (ie. football, baseball) and any other niche that caters to information that is frequently updated and published. Although this update did not have the far reaching and in some cases devastating effects of Panda it illustrates the monumental shift that is taking place in the online marketing sphere; specifically in how information is shared and evaluated by the search engines.

The long and short of it… content is king. The idea of content marketing isn’t a new one, however, the idea seems to be gaining traction with the most recent algorithm updates. If you have been sitting on the fence about whether you should be blogging or not I believe the writing is now on the wall.

Recommendations For Staying Fresh

  • Create a blog and update it frequently
  • Incorporate an RSS reader so that fans can stay connected to your blog
  • Build out your social networks (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Youtube)
  • Communicate and share information via your social networks

These recommendations may be pretty straight forward, however, they will set you on the correct path for capitalizing on the changing online environment.
