DC WordPress Website Design Company in Alexandria, Virginia

WordPress is becoming an increasingly popular platform for many types of enterprise websites. We specialize in WordPress development for commercial sites, higher education multisites, law firms, non-profits, and municipal and county government clients. WordPress now powers more than 22% of the world’s top 1 million websites.  The reason is clear: WordPress is a content management system that has lots of advantages over both other systems and more traditional site platforms. Materiell has a  staff of talented designers and developers to create a custom WordPress solution for your website design project.

At Materiell, we believe WordPress is the right choice for many types of websites.

A few reasons why: WordPress allows you to make updates and edit content on your website without having to know code.

The WordPress Dashboard gives you behind-the-scenes access to your website, so you can make changes or update new files, without having to know any code.  Materiell configures your site’s WordPress Dashboard for your needs.  Still nervous?  We will also provide on-site training so you can take control of your web content after your new site launches.

WordPress is an open-source platform that is always improving.

Since its inception in 2003, WordPress has consistently been updated and upgraded. Its open-source platform has a loyal following of talented developers that collaborate on its development and release updates approximately 4 times a year.  Its open-source architecture means that you are not locked in to proprietary development software that is hard to learn, hard to update, and doesn’t play well with others.

WordPress Design in DC is fast when you hire Materiell.

Because of the the combination of WordPress system’s efficiency and our experience and expertise, creating your company’s website won’t drag on forever. Materiell can present you with a fully functional, professional website on WordPress much faster than many of our competitors. Plus, once your main site has been configured and launched, Materiell provides personalized training to make it easy for you to add and update your content on your own. Of course you always have the option to contract Materiell to handle updates and revisions on your behalf.

WordPress is SEO-friendly.

When you use most content management systems or create a static HTML site you run the risk of your new site not ranking well in search results. WordPress is well documented as a search engine friendly framework. Using WordPress, Materiell will give you a major advantage in the race for top search-engine results: searchers can find your pages and posts by properly labeling them with relevant links. Plus, WordPress has optional specialized plugins geared toward search engine optimization (SEO), and can send a automated ping to search engines every time you publish new content.

WordPress is flexible and social.

No site is an island, so WordPress is made to have as much functionality as possible with as many other social-media sites as possible. With a single click, you can share WordPress content on other sites like Twitter or Digg, or “Like” it on Facebook. (For even more brand consistency, Materiell can design both your business’s WordPress site and its Facebook page.) You can create an RSS feed of your content for others to follow, or you can display feeds from others. You can even encourage sociability on your own site with features like forums and blogs.

WordPress is highly customizable.

WordPress will support many types of popular content & features:

  • Brochure Sites with Rich Graphics
  • Streaming Audio
  • Case Studies
  • Social Media
  • Video
