WordPress Development

Develop a WordPress site worthy of the brand behind it.

We’ve been working with WordPress since it was just for blogs

At Orbit, we build digital marketing into design and development, so your new site isn’t just versatile–it’s goal-shatteringly effective.

Since 2001, we’ve learned a lot about what makes websites work. Thousands of launches later, across nearly every industry—we’ve come to understand the goals that matter to your business.

Whether you’re building a brand new website or redesigning an existing site. We’re here, ready to help you exceed those goals.

Get a WordPress site designed that doesn’t look like WordPress

Not all WordPress sites have to look like, well, WordPress. In the right hands, this is a flexible, versatile tool that can be designed to be an exact reflection of your brand. With Orbit, you’ll get a unique site created by our expert designers. Each site is built with:

  • A UX-centered structure
  • A unique blend of images and graphics
  • Colors, buttons, and fonts that reflect your brand
  • A personalized content strategy
  • Key SEO and marketing pages written in your voice

Your WordPress site is a collaboration between your experts and ours, creating a site unlike anything else on the web. We create a site that’s exactly what you need it to be.

Customized to fit you, your business, your site

We’ll be your friendly web development partners. No strings attached.

And we’ll never outsource your project. All of our web developers are in-house and on-site. Except for Chris who moved to Alabama (but before that, he sat right next to Jess).

Working with Orbit means you’ll have the freedom to update your pages without help from a programmer. Think of all the money you’ll save once we’ve built your site and trained you how to use it.

A search-first process on a search-friendly platform

A CMS that makes managing your site easy.

WordPress uses WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) editors that show real-time web design changes before you even publish your page. Drag-and-drop functionality makes it easy to update your content without wondering what it will look like, and because Google loves the way WordPress organizes content, your site is literally built to rank.

You no longer have to fear managing your blog, content and media. The WordPress CMS simplifies content management and publishing. Create content regularly to stay relevant to your visitors.

Integration and 3rd party tools

The possibilities are endless. So are the integration points.

Thanks to an active open source community, WordPress features and functionality are always expanding. Orbit’s expert developers will select, install and even build plugins to make sure your site works with your existing systems.

The decision couldn’t be easier.

Training and support through the life of your website

Our work doesn’t end when your WordPress site goes live. We’ll train your team on how to use your new system. We provide technical support, marketing advice, and a website performance assessment.

Most of our WordPress engagements run between 12-15 weeks. But we’ll stick around long after your project lifetime—to ensure your site gets the lifetime support it needs to grow, evolve, and thrive.

We’re focused on creating exceptional work for clients
