Do you need to convert your design or prototype into a responsive website?
Get a custom WordPress website that looks exactly like your mockups, and is easy to edit.
Have you ever worked with website developers who over-promise and under-deliver?
You have a new website design ready to be developed. It looks amazing, exactly like you wanted to, and now you need a developer to convert it into a fully functional website.
If you have worked with developers in the past, you know that these projects can be easily compromised.
Maybe the final product didn’t look exactly like it was designed. Maybe the final website is slow, or isn’t as reliable as you wished.
Creating custom WordPress websites can be complex. It’s the kind of project where you want to work with a developer who has years of dedicated experience.
Over the years, I realized that being a good developer isn’t enough. It’s also necessary to implement a solid process to deliver a high quality website.
And this isn’t something that can be learned with development tutorials or in a coding bootcamp. It requires experience in the field, with real websites, in hundreds of different contexts.
If you’re looking for an experienced developer to bring your design into reality, this service is for you.
My mission is to create websites that can really give you a competitive advantage: they need to be easy to edit, fast, and reliable.
I build websites with 7 core principles
The recipe for a perfect website requires specific ingredients. Here’s how I approach a web development project.
You’re building a website to pursue specific business goals. I do my best to make sure your project will bring a positive ROI.
Easy to Edit
The website must be easy to edit, even for users without technical knowledge. When I build new features and templates, I always keep this principle in mind.
Attention to detail
The website must look exactly like it looks in the mockups. It’s not just work; it’s a personal challenge.
Your site will automatically resize to fit the screen perfectly, across all devices and browsers.
Focus on performance
I use the least amount of plugins possible, so your page load speed will not be compromised. I don’t take shortcuts that could ruin the performance of your site.
Plan before implementation
Many WordPress devs will look at your design, give you a price, and then just start development. This is the recipe for disaster. Planning is needed to reduce risk and avoid “surprises” during the project.
No developer or agency dependencies
A good website doesn’t “trap” you with a developer for eternity. I don’t use any obscure proprietary tools or plugins that will force you to pay me a maintenance plan.
The WordPress Advisor Process
The full process to deliver you a perfect website
To start, you will share your design in Figma or AdobeXD or other similar software. We can do one free consultation, and once I have enough information, I will share a proposal with you.
If the project is complex, I’ll create a Google doc with a detailed plan. I may also test different solutions before developing the new website. This step will be included in the price and will help reduce risk.
I will create a staging environment, and in one to two weeks from project start I will share with you the first demo of your new website. Usually this includes the homepage and one internal page.
When the website is complete, if your project includes new custom features, I will create some guides (in video or PDF format) that will show you how you can manage your website without relying on a developer.
When the website has been tested across all the necessary browsers and devices, after your approval, we will migrate it to production.
Bring your next website to life
Every project is unique. However, here are some guidelines and my minimum level of engagement.
I always include a 6-months warranty, regardless of price.
What makes WordPress Advisor different?
There are a lot of mockup to WordPress services out there. Why choosing WordPress Advisor?
No overblown budgets
You’ll know the total project cost before we start. I don’t do hourly billing, so you will never pay more than the agreed price.
Bug-free guarantee of 6 months
I always include a 6 month bug-free guarantee. If you discover any bugs in my work, I’ll fix them without additional costs.
One point of contact
You will communicate directly with me. You don’t have to deal with project managers, and you will never need to explain your requests twice.
I’ve worked with clients from the US, Europe, Asia, and even Australia. I worked remotely for most of my life. If you read past client reviews, you will notice one thing: they often mention my communication skills.
The best experts in the market
Over the years, I met WordPress experts of all kinds. SEO, copywriters, speed optimization experts, backend developers, and more. If your project requires multiple experts, I can include them in your project.
In my career as a developer, I focused only on websites built with WordPress. This allows me to stay up to date with everything associated with this CMS, and find the best solutions for all sorts of business needs.
What design file formats do you accept?
Figma, AdobeXD, Sketch, InVision, Pretty much any other software built for web design out there.
What type of WordPress work do you specialize in?
Short version: Most of my work consists of creating WordPress products or finding existing solutions to solve specific business problems associated with WordPress websites.
Some examples: build a custom stock management plugin, develop a plugin to show specific affiliate products with custom blocks, convert a Figma prototype into a bespoke theme (and plugins) to handle its specific custom features and settings.
Long version: I mostly do full stack web development. For some projects I also take care of the discovery phase, and the UI design of new components or custom templates, with Figma, before developing a custom plugin or theme for WordPress.
In terms of business verticals, most of my clients in 2021, 2022 and 2023 were affiliate marketing websites and networks, or subscription websites: e-learning, memberships websites, and similar.
Where are your clients from?
80% of my clients are from the US, EST timezone. I’ve also worked for clients from the US west coast, Canada, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, China, Australia, and more.
How did that happen? Initially, I met clients from all over the world via Codeable, a freelancing platform. Then, I also started to receive some inquires from LinkedIn, YouTube, and also from Reddit.
How do you document your code?
When I develop something for my clients, I always assume that other developers may need to edit the code base in the future. And I do my best to make their job as easy as possible.
I will share with you the Github repository for this project so you can have the full history of my code edits.
Of course, I comment my code so that others can understand how it works and help make future edits easier.
I will also provide a more extensive documentation of my edits. You will always know what I edited, how I did it, and when.
Ready to start?
In order to ensure the highest quality service for my clients, I limit my workload to no more than three active clients at a time.
