Why I recommend WordPress
My partner and I bought a business that had an existing wordpress and woocommerce site. The previous owner told us that the original developer had left the area and was no longer contactable. There we were, a new business with a woocommerce online shop and no support! Fortunately, my background in Management Accounting and Software sales kicked in and I learnt WordPress.
One of the ways I learnt so quickly was to build a new site for one of my other businesses. I setup a fresh WordPress & Woocommerce installation. Added the pages, created an online store, setup the payment systems and launched. SEO was the next step, Yoast SEO (a wordpress plugin) was a massive boost. With WordPress this is straight-forward. Once sorted, the orders started flowing in. Having created a new site from scratch, the confidence was there to fix the site that came with the new business and fix it we did!
WindermereWebWorks is the result of the last three or four years of learning how to fix and create sites. The biggest learns come when I have broken a site, the feeling when I get it back up and running is great. What I understand now is that it really is impossible to ‘break’ a site like this.
