What Is WordPress?
WordPress is a content management system and is a platform that is used to build websites on.
WordPress enables users to have administration access to the back-end so that they can make edits to the websites themselves without having to ask a developer to perform these tasks on their behalf, hence saving time and money.
Sites that are powered by WordPress enable users to not only manage their content, but also their media (images, PDFs, docx and so on), SEO, online enquiries or e-commerce/shopping orders under the one roof.
Is WordPress Easy to Use?
Short answer – yes!
Long answer – the administration back-end is very user-friendly and quite self-explanatory. Like any full-fledged content management system, there is a learning curve, but WordPress has nailed the simplicity and efficiency of the system in their presentation, features and security.
For any WordPress website build, you can request a demo, online training or user-guide to ensure that you make the most of your website.
In short, if you know how to use Word, you’ll have little to no issues working with WordPress!
Is WordPress Safe to Use?
WordPress as an out-of-the-box content management system is absolutely safe to use. WordPress is managed by a great community of users/developers and regular updates are provided to ensure that your website is sound.
The issues arising from any website, including WordPress, are more often than not due to outdated sites or vulnerable plugins that have been installed on the sites.
Vulnerabilities and security issues are however a constant battle and the integrity of your site, whether it’s WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or any other content management system, needs to be closely monitored at all times.
Is WordPress Any Good for Ecommerce Sites?
Although WordPress started as a blogging platform back in the early 2000s, it has evolved into a more robust and trusted content management platform, with virtually unlimited capabilities that can be extended via plugins, to cater for your web development needs.
WordPress is very good at portfolio sites, services sites, e-commerce, blogs (obviously) and many more.

Why Hire A Freelancer for your WordPress sites?
Get peace of mind, knowing that your WordPress website is being catered for, monitored and kept updated at all times when you hire a freelancer.
I’m a local, trusted Sydney-based freelance WordPress developer, and have been working in web design & development for over a decade.
With a freelance WordPress developer, you can be assured that your queries are responded to promptly, and turn-around times are fast and efficient.
As a freelancer, my overheads are small in comparison with digital agencies, and the savings are passed onto the clients for their WordPress site builds or maintenance plans.
As someone who has worked on both sides of the fence (digital agencies and client-side), I can assure you that the quality, expertise and craftsmanship is on-par, or even better, than what you can expect from local marketing/digital agencies in Sydney.
Do You Design and Develop Websites Too?
Short answer – yes!
Long answer – I specialise in both web design and web development. And Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) too!
Clients usually come with a brief of what they want the website to look like, as well as the features that are required to fulfil their needs. More often than not, clients do not have wireframes, brand guidelines and/or design patterns. Fret not! As a freelance WordPress designer and developer, I can take on your projects from start to finish!
On a side note, I also provide freelancing services to Australian agencies when they have work surplus – in those instances, I am usually provided with wireframes and page layout, which I custom-build into WordPress, to ensure that the website is on point with the original approved concepts.
What's the Cost of a WordPress site?
A simple WordPress website usually starts at $2,800 – $3,000, but obviously, there’s no simple “one quote fits all” for clients’ needs as they are usually very different on a case-by-case basis – the quote above involves minimal graphic design, copy writing and SEO!
To get a more accurate quote, the best approach is to get in touch with me, or have a sit-down over coffee to discuss your projects.
Do You Provide WordPress Support?
Yes, I do!
As a freelance WordPress developer, I provide WordPress support services to clients in the following areas:
- Hacked websites, broken pages and in-depth troubleshooting
- Plugins maintenance
- Security and healthchecks
- Website backups and restores
- Quick fixes (layout, 404 pages and redirects)
- and more!
For emergency scenarios such as site breakdowns, spam, denial of service or defaced/hacked systems, I can usually assist on the same day.
