Blogs are a tremendously valuable tool in online marketing in today’s competitive environment. Most companies and online businesses still are not fully aware of the value that blogging can provide, in terms of natural search engine traffic and also in building your status (or that of your company) as an expert in your field.
Our preferred platform for blog development is Wordpress. WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets. WordPress is limited only by your imagination and Avalio can help you bring your vision to life.
We have five years of experience developing blogs and websites using Wordpress and will be happy to fulfill your requirements or work with you to help you figure out exactly what you need. Check out our blog theme portfolio for examples of the variety of work we do.
Our custom WordPress theme service features everything you need to get the maximum benefit with ease, all you need to do is start blogging!
Here’s what you get:
- WordPress Installation or Upgrade
- We install the WordPress platform on the hosting servers of your choice. We can host your blog, or you can use your preferred providers. (Or, you are always welcome to use your own hosting company as long as they support Wordpress and your chosen functionality.)
- Custom graphic design
- We’ll work with you to determine the right layout and structure for your blog. We’re experts at this, so we can make your blog look anyway you want! Then we will design your totally unique theme using your photos and images, or we can supply excellent professional graphics if needed.
- Plugins and features
- We’ll set up the bells and whistles that supercharge your WordPress blog. Some are designed to make using your blog easier for you, some help your blog visitors subscribe and share your blog with others, and some add technical components in a way that’s so easy to use you’ll be amazed!
- Search engine friendliness
- We’ve been students of search engine optimization since 2000, and are expert in configuring WordPress for maximum search engine placement. All of our themes are 100% fully search engine friendly and set up to maximize your exposure on Google and the other search engines. The blog would be set up to automatically create the best underlying code for SEO. Your title and meta tags would also be automatically set for you, unique for each post, but you would also be able to very easily manually control these also if you wanted, on a post by post basis. This is VERY powerful for achieving good search rankings.
- Full control with Widgets
- All custom themes are “widgetized.” This means you will have control over what elements appear in your sidebar, and in what order. Based on your unique needs, widgets can be used for a variety of areas of your blog, giving you maximum control over your content without ever touching any code. You control the content, the theme we create will make sure it looks great!
- Upgraded commenting
- Our themes support “nested comments” – which means that your site visitors can not only post comments about your content, but also create rich discussions with each other, and you! This feature is excellent for building a strong and loyal readership and ensuring return traffic.
- Audio & Video enhancement
- Always wanted to “podcast?” Want to share YouTube video with your readers? With our themes, all you have to do is know how to copy and paste and you will look like a technical genius!
- Automated spam filtering
- Spam are rampant, but never fear! We will configure your blog so that you never have to worry about nasty spam filling up your blog. One client was dealing with 100’s of spams a day on his blog before we helped reconfigure his WordPress blog. Now, the spam never makes it past the filter, and our client is free to enjoy blogging again!
- Social Bookmarking
- Your blog will be social bookmark enabled, so your visitors will simply have to click an icon to share your blog with the world!
