Did You Know WordPress Powers 43% Of The Entire Internet?
Hello, new website visitor! This is Michael, the owner of M.J. Web Design. I just want to take a min to welcome you to the website and tell you about this page. Are you a small business owner with a WordPress website that isn’t performing? Maybe, you’re a new business owner and aren’t sure where to start when it comes to owning a website. Well, M.J. Web Design is here to help, and WordPress is the premier way to do it.
I’ve met many business owners who purchased hosting on Wix or Squarespace, then realized they didn’t know the first thing about web design, search engine optimization, or how to make that website work for their business. The first issue is that when you set your business up on Wix, Squarespace, or other website builders, the hosting company owns the domain. NOT YOU. Second, many of the websites built on these platforms have tons of code behind the scenes which Google isn’t a fan of (they are slower).
WordPress offers the ultimate freedom for customization and it’s our number one content management system to design new websites. There’s a reason it powers the highest percentage of websites on the internet. The amount of software, customization, and opportunities are unmatched. If you’re interested in just talking with us for free hit the green button. If not, enjoy the page!
WordPress Is The World's Most Popular Content Management System
Here's Why You Want Your Website On It
You Will Own Your Website
Wix and Squarespace are marketed to small business owners as cheaper DIY options. But, they don’t tell you that when you design your site on these platforms Wix and Squarespace maintain rights to the domain name, and should you want to go elsewhere you can’t take the website with you.
It Brings Costs Down
At first, DIY website builders appear to be the cheaper option. But as your business grows, you’re going to want more features and speed. WordPress has free plugins and software you can utilize, whereas many website builders will charge you for the extra features. Before you know it, you want to switch.
WordPress Has Great Flexibility
WordPress has over 59,000 plugins you can use to add features to your website. Many DIY website builders limit you to the features they provide. If you want to add something your customers want and your website builder doesn’t offer it, then you’re out of luck.
SEO Ready Websites
It’s become well known in the web design industry that website builders such as Wix and Squarespace don’t rank well on Google. They are bloated and loaded down with behind-the-scenes code that 1) slow them down and 2) makes Google hesitant to rank them as well as other websites.
The Benefits Of Building A New Website Or Moving Your Existing Website To WordPress
Just in case the section above wasn’t enough, here’s some more statistics proving the benefits of WordPress.
Of The Internet
43% of the internet runs on WordPress. We said it earlier a couple of times but we can’t ignore the truth behind it.
More than half of the websites that have higher-ranking pages and traffic run on WordPress and not DIY website builders.
There is nothing you can’t get done when you design your website on WordPress. The number of options is unmatched.
DIY website builders get more money from you through hidden costs and features. This won’t happen with WordPress.

Ongoing WordPress Website Maintenance
Just because your website is built on WordPress doesn’t mean you don’t need someone to maintain it.

Websites can also be hacked, and when you’re collecting customer information its the last thing you want. Our website maintenance services include specialized WordPress maintenance. We will make sure your site has the proper security, speed optimizations, SEO optimizations, content updates, and repairs should something break.
Website Content Designed To Sell Your Goods & Services
When you research a business on the internet, everyone’s website seems the same. The website says what the business does, sometimes features their history, and then their goods and services. But no one ever writes about how you would feel as a buyer should you purchase from the company. When we write custom website content, we analyze the buyers of that particular service or product first. That way, we make sure the content invokes emotions in your website visitors’ that make them want to buy.
Wordpress Search Engine Optimization
When an agency builds your new website on WordPress, make sure you get it optimized for SEO. SEO stands for search engine optimization. Its an algorithm Google and other search engines use to determine how to rank website pages. In other words, if your web designer isn’t optimizing the website for SEO, the website will not appear on Google, and your money will go nowhere. M.J. Web Design ensures SEO optimization is included with every website we complete. We don’t make it an addon, we provide you with more value for your money.

WordPress And Web Design FAQ
If you have a question that’s not listed. Don’t hesitate to contact us here.
There are tons of other content management systems like Joomla and Drupal, but we concentrate on WordPress. Why? Because it’s the most popular and has the most flexibility. Be that as it may, we do have experience with Joomla, WIX, Squarespace, WordPress, and Shopify. But WordPress is our number one platform.
We have good news and bad. When you want to switch from a website builder to WordPress, you first have to tackle the domain name. When you choose a domain name from WIX or Squarespace, they own it… We can work on getting the domain name on another host, but the content will be gone. Luckily we have designed websites on both DIY website builders and WordPress, and it’s possible to recreate/redesign the website to be almost exactly like it was… But better!
Every type of business! There are enterprises that use it, small businesses, bloggers, eCommerce stores, and more.
There are over 59,000 plugins that provide extra features for a WordPress website. With a little bit of research you can find many free plugins with great reviews. If you’re not sure, consult with your web designer since they are aware of the best ones. For example, M.J. Web Design uses Sucuri for WordPress security, Akismet for anti-spam, Elementor for website building, Nitropack for speed, Yoast for SEO, and that’s just a few of our favorites.
This is going to stink, but there is no average cost. Whether you design your own WordPress website or hire an agency to do the work for you, the size and scope is what determines the price. An eCommerce website with 500 products and more advances security is going to cost way more than a personal portfolio with 8 pages. But, companies have paid as little as $1200, and as much as $75,000 for a website.
There sure are. WordPress powers 43% of the entire internet, and among other content management systems 76%.
It is but there are reasons. If you’re the biggest and most well known business, the thief will want to rob you. It’s the same thing here. WordPress powers so much of the internet that its going to be what the hackers go after. But, most of the time websites get hacked because they are not being managed properly. If you don’t regularly check your site and update the plugins, it leaves holes malware and hackers can exploit.
The average WordPress designer will charge a few thousand for a custom website, and that will include hosting and extra software costs. Generally SEO and other services become addons. We design everything custom unless you truly have budgeting problems, then we can utilize a template. We don’t encourage it though, since many of the DIY WordPress users have probably purchased the same templates online, and the last thing you want is a website that looks just like your competitors.
Here’s a list of what you get when you choose us to design your WordPress website.
- Custom UX and UI design
- eCommerce functionality
- Website maintenance and management
- Responsive web design
- Custom copywriting
- Lead generator creation and calls to action.
- Website hosting (we use Siteground)
- Search Engine Optimization
- Website analytics
Literally none of that is an addon. You get it all when you hire us.
