New website builds and website recreations
Our bread and butter are WordPress and Shopify website builds and recreations. Many of these sites are built with the purpose of being used in lead generation campaigns whether that is through SEO, Google Ads, or Facebook Ads. The sites we built are aimed at the purpose of acting as an online brochure for the company–showcasing the company’s products and services, their history, and the value they bring to their client. For SEO sites, there is a tremendous amount of care and consideration in building them. These sites, more than basic sites, need to have their code tweaked along with their content in order to perform well on organic Google searches.
Regarding website recreations, we understand that from time-to-time, a company might have a website that they recently had built. You might love the layout, the feel, the look, etc., but perhaps it was built using a pre-built template bought from a store. While these types of website projects are less expensive and “cheaper”, their lack of efficiency can cost more money as plugins begin to interfere with other parts of the code or when licenses begin to expire. This is when a client is in need of website recreation. Basically, Auxilia takes the site and makes a clone of it (layout and all) by re-coding it using custom code that isn’t as plugin reliant nor has licensing issues. This is our website recreation. A literal recreation of the website, retaining the look and feel all while cleaning up the backend for a more efficient and cost-effective website.
When Auxilia is hired for a new website build, we opt for either WordPress or Shopify for that project. Regardless of what platform we use, our websites follow these core principles:
- Mobile-responsiveness that allows it to display beautifully, and speedily, across all device sizes,
- Utilize custom high-resolution images or stock high-resolution images,
- Provide professional graphic design mockups before the project begins so you know what your site will look like ahead of time,
- Rely on a minimal amount of plugins that are all free so there are no licensing issues down the line.
Our WordPress website design
For those clients needing basic company representation, or for those clients needing lead generation through SEO or Google Ads, or Facebook Ads WordPress tends to be the best way to build their site. WordPress is a CMS, which stands for “content management system”. According to Google, “a content management system or CMS is a software that facilitates creating, editing, organizing, and publishing content. WordPress is a Content Management System, that allows you to create and publish your content on the web.” In laymen’s terms, a CMS allows a website user or manager to easily store and manage photos, pages, and other data commonly used in a website.
From an SEO standpoint, WordPress gives you some helpful tools (plugins) that will allow a website manager to easily manipulate permalinks/URLs, create redirects, add in page titles and meta-descriptions, and utilize Facebook’s open-graph which allows for easy social media posting–automatically providing that social media post the title, page description, and featured image.
Our Shopify website design
For those clients that have an e-commerce store, we direct them to build their site in Shopify. Shopify is a popular and easily customizable e-commerce platform. It allows a company to build a store that easily sorts products and the collections to which they belong, along with user management, inventory management, credit card processing and so on. In our opinion, use the right tool for the job and you’ll get the best results. While Shopify has some tight restrictions on what can and cannot be sold on their platform, for most e-commerce sites it is a natural fit. In the rare instance where Shopify cannot or will not facilitate a certain business’ products, then WordPress’ Woocommerce may be the solution. This gives WordPress the ability to have an e-commerce functionality.
Another great aspect of Shopify is its variety of payment options, as well as the ability to integrate into Google Retail, Facebook and Instagram newsfeeds, and other convenient platforms. This allows you to market your products in a variety of ways, paving the way for an increase in your sales! This platform provides (what we would consider) an all-inclusive option. They handle web hosting, credit card processing and disbursement of funds, and they do these things in a secure manner. They take security out of the web designer and website manager’s hands, which is a big relief. If you have an e-commerce store, and your products are able to be sold on Shopify then go with Shopify!
Website repairs and modifications
This is pretty obvious but we also offer website repairs and modifications. These can occur if a website “breaks” in some manner or if someone wishes to update their website. The issues and repairs can range from:
- Contact form stopped working,
- Carousel doesn’t slide or show up,
- Images or text no longer appear,
- Website appears hacked,
- The site hasn’t been updated or the plugins haven’t been updated,
- The site was updated and now things aren’t working or look out of place,
- The website has the jitters (you’ll know it when you see it),
- Mobile menu doesn’t open,
- The gallery stopped working, or
- Other such items.
The website modifications can go from soup to nuts as well. Here are some of the modifications we’ve become experts in performing:
- Update personnel on the website,
- Change out images or text,
- Add a page,
- Remove a page,
- Move the site from one host to another,
- Add in a video on the site,
- Update the name, address, or phone number,
- Put in a gallery, and
- Much more.
The bottom line is: If it can break then we can fix it, and if it needs modifying, we can modify it. Auxilia’s professionals are capable of taking on any challenge.
