I can help you spend half the amount of time on your next project, command higher fees, and attract better clients.
Are you ready to level up your business and work with top shelf clients?
I can help you ditch the hassle of struggling with code. Just say no to time-consuming & stressful googling of error codes, the copy-paste-pray cycle, spending hours looking for plugins that barely come close to the design you’ve envisioned, and all the other parts of this job that rob you of the life you wanted when you started your business.
Custom-Built WordPress Themes
Details matter! Your designs are brought to life to your exact specifications, so your client gets exactly the site your envision.
Performant & SEO Friendly
Existing sites are analyzed to preserve historical SEO goodness. From there, I build the site from the ground up to be SEO friendly, and fast.
Your designs will look good and load fast on any kind of device, from wearable tech to phones to giant cinema displays.
Solid, Performance Optimized, Easy-to-Use WordPress Themes
I build WordPress themes using all the goodness of Advanced Custom Fields Pro. ACF Pro is a powerful and efficient tool for making robust layouts that are intuitive, non-fragile, and super fast to load. That means when you hand over the site to your client, they will find it easy and fast to edit themselves.
Once we know all the ways that your client needs to present content, I create a library of custom blocks just for your client that can be reused endlessly on any page, combining to create layouts that are complex, yet easy to use.
The editor experience makes building and editing pages a breeze. What you see on the back end is what you get on the front end.
Here’s how a custom built theme utilizing modern WordPress features will improve your client’s life…
- Your client will not see [shortcodes] in the back end [/because those are=”terrible”].
- They will not need to deal with a slow-loading editor-within-an-editor just to edit some text, change a link, or add a picture.
- They will not be presented with a dizzying array of design options that they don’t understand.
- Your client will have only as much design control as you want to give them– they won’t be able to break your design.
- If they have monetized their sites using Mediavine or another ad network, they won’t have to deal with “div soup” that interferes with that algorithm.
A top shelf website attracts top shelf clients. A great website…
…gets better with every update
Don’t worry about hitting that update button. Fewer plugins means that you’re much less likely to have to worry that updating will break the site. So if you’re the one who is maintaining the site going forward, your job just got easier. I’m obsessive about going the extra mile to make sure that things happen the WordPress Way and making things resilient to future change.
…is fast & efficiently coded
I’ve been coding things by hand for the entire duration of my web development career (since 2000) and I’ve reinvented a lot of wheels in that time. Fortunately, that’s come around to being cool again. So rest assured, you’ve got a diehard performance obsessive geek on your hands who knows what it means to do things the hard way, and the right way, for the good of the user.
…is branded for your business
The WordPress admin interface can be branded for your business or customized for your client, to whatever extent you prefer. Links to documentation in custom widgets, a cleaned-up admin menu experience, custom user roles like “site owner”– all these options are possible, and will make handoff to your client simple and straightforward.
How can partnering with me on your next client project change your business?
Your clients will be wowed at how easy their site is to maintain and update, site visitors will get lightning fast page loads, and your beautiful site will stay that way and get results for your clients. Your design portfolio will flourish and overflow with amazing, quantifiable gains– your clients’ traffic will improve, their website speed results will improve, their revenue will go up.
When they see these things happen, your clients will leave enthusiastic, flowery reviews on your social media and tell all their friends. Your skin will get that dewey glow. Your dog will learn to make you coffee. You’ll finally really enjoy jogging.
…Ok, so I can’t promise those last three things, but who’s to say it won’t happen now that you’ve saved all this time and effort partnering with me on your next project?
Let’s work together to take your business to the next level.
Listen to what this happy designer had to say about working with me on a recent project…
“My client noticed a 20% increase in website traffic within the first 2 weeks of launch. She also achieved her best Mediavine ads revenue day EVER. I have no doubt that her traffic and revenue increase is related to Kelsey’s coding. Lightweight, fast-loading, totally optimized for ads… Kelsey brought my design concept to life!”
