In 1995 I designed my first website using Dreamweaver from a company called Macromedia. I was hooked from day one. I’ve always enjoyed building websites, it’s the perfect mix of creativity and technical geekiness. I like designing beautiful graphic websites and then coding them to do amazing things. I don’t know if most designers feel that way about their art, but that’s what has always kept me interested.
I’ll be honest, in the early days of WordPress I wasn’t it’s biggest fan. It was clunky, too simplistic, and just too much work to get it to do all the fancy things our clients like their websites to do. However, a couple years ago I started using it exclusively to build websites because it was exactly the opposite. WordPress has become a very powerful and easy way to build a website. Not only does it empower individuals to build their own websites, in the hands of a talented web designer, it can be one of the fastest and most efficient ways to build stunning websites for your clients.
Once you start looking at all the plugins and themes that are being developed for WordPress, it becomes the obvious solution for many web designers. On it’s own, WordPress can save you hours on website development. It has actually made flat rate websites something that designers can profit from again.
That being said, creating WordPress websites still has it’s fair share of problems to overcome. Different hosting providers have different ways of assigning permissions and sometimes getting everything to work properly when doing a WordPress install can be a time consuming process. Then when you get into plugins, you also have to deal with compatibility issues, design problems, and the dreaded blank page that threatens to keep you up until 3AM trying to figure out. This is where the individual DIY website builders and web designers that don’t have experience with the ins and outs of server administration get frustrated to the point of giving up.
That’s where managed WordPress hosting comes into play. Imagine a web design environment where you didn’t have to install anything. No more installing WordPress and hoping the server setup will play nicely. No more installing plugins and themes wondering if they’re going to be compatible. No more installing updates with you mouse pointer hovering over the button offering up a silent prayer that it doesn’t break the website… oh and did you backup first? No more debating with your client over which hosting company they should go with. All these things that keep you from doing what you want to do, design websites.
If I would have had a company like Mozaic to partner with at the height of my web design days, I would have seen it as an answer to divine prayer. Even though I enjoy the technical side of working on websites, like most designers, I hate the frustration of keeping up with maintenance, backups, and endless updates. Mozaic’s Managed WordPress Hosting platform takes care of all that and lets me focus on designing a website that has engaging content and creates leads for my clients.
At the end of the day, we build websites to make money. Sometimes increasing your profit margin doesn’t mean bringing on more work, it can also look like lowering your overhead and making your process more efficient. These things also work wonders for your bottom line.
