September Update for Allshouse Designs

Hello everyone and I hope your week is going well. As far as updates go for Allshouse Designs. Matt and I have signed 4 new clients in the last couple weeks. AWESOME! I urge you to go to our update video and look into the description of the video for client’s website addresses. They are great people and offer great services.

Matt is working on improving our videos and creating more of them in his studio. I don’t think I’ll be in the next one, but that may change. I hope the next one we upload is going to be episode 2 for our tools and tips for marketing section.

I have been working on transferring our website into BootStrap. This will make our website faster and will be easier on the responsiveness for different type of devices. Of course, I will not get to this until our new clients are serviced.

If you watched the video, yes we are planning to buy a 360 camera. Whether you like it or not. Video technology is going toward VR and we want to be on the for front of this up and coming technology.

Yes or no for WordPress

wordpress-pro-cons-allshouse-designsWordPress is a great CMS platform and I have managed and designed plenty of WordPress sites in my day. Over the years, I learned quite a bit. The one major lesson that I learned is that it is better to host a WordPress site on a WordPress owned server. Now it does cost a bit more then hosting it on a private server, but the chances of being hacked becomes a lot less. Once a WordPress site gets hacked it can be very difficult and costly to fix. Last time I checked it was around a $100 per year to have a WordPress site hosted on wordpress.com and it can be between $250 to $1000 to fix a hacked site. Do the math and decide. WordPress is awesome, but it may not be the right fit for your business. There is a great pros and cons of WordPress post located in the Tips & Updates at allshousedesigns.com that you should check out. It should help you decide. If you have more questions about WordPress. Please feel free to post them in the comment section.
