Neptik-22nd Aug 2016

The Beginner’s World of WordPress

Welcome to the team.

It’s four days since I officially started working for Neptik. I’ve just graduated and despite my Media and Communications degree, have never really had experience working with a CMS.

When I was introduced to our admin page in WordPress, it seemed to be a process that was managed completely by the developers, but as all new jobs go, you’re thrown into the deep end, given responsibility and before you know it I was managing a lot of our new website content. To my surprise it was easy to navigate, search, upload, and edit without seeing a word of code.

It’s no surprise that more and more web developers are turning to the site when it’s so dead simple. You don’t have to be a coding whizz, and within an hour you can pretty much have the ropes on how to create new content that looks original, exciting, and personal. It was helpful that I could access all relevant media quickly and easily, with our library all set up and ready to go, see the hierarchy of pages, and even see details of a page’s SEO visibility, with suggestions of improvement and an analysis of its effectiveness.

With Neptik hugely expanding their services, to not only offer branding, logo design, and web development, but now a hefty slice of digital marketing, it’s important that I can produce some good quality work without spending half an hour frustratingly clicking around a complicated, technical CMS.

When it comes to clients, Wordpress is our preferred CMS because of it’s simplicity, and how well it can be passed to be managed by whoever needs access to it. We’ve used it for Brighton’s much loved bakery The Flour Pot, as well as Vogue Fashion Stylist Lucy Bower‘s portfolio and there’s been no complaints. We offer in-house training, which means we don’t have to get involved ever time a client wanted to make a small change, and gives them the control they need.

Aspiring bloggers, start-up website designers, students, I highly recommend it. Get on there and give it a go, it’s not as daunting as you think.

If you’ve got any questions or just want to know a bit more about what we do, don’t be afraid to give us a shout.
