What We Propose​

Not only will you get a great website, you’ll likely get ideas, inspiration, clarity and knowledge for future editing…

You choose

There’s lots of different software choices in creating a website. Many make it sound easy to use their software and create a fantastic looking site. It is possible to make a website yourself, but very few of us would call it easy. It’s even harder to make a site that looks good, attracts and converts visitors to customers and is technically solid.

We design & build

You’ll have a shared understanding of the people who are likely to be your users. The website developer will draw upon their experience and knowledge in the software being used. You’ll have a sounding board for your organisational ideas and how they translate to the online environment.

We support

If you’re choosing personal service, great know-how and an experienced developer for your website, you will see how Ascent Publishing can help. Having a local you can communicate with during the process of developing this key resource for your business will have surprising benefits.

 DIY Reality Check

Editing and maintaining a website is harder than Facebook and Gumtree but easier than an Engineering program.

For example, this video shows you in less than two minutes how to update plug-in software and this video shows you how to create a back-up file of your website.
However, if you really aren’t good at working with computers or you are unlikely to prioritise these tasks to ensure they get done, then ongoing website costs for your business would be a reasonable expense.

Be realistic about whether you have the skills, time or inclination to undertake the tasks when it comes to computers if;

  • you’re generally not good at them
  • using them stresses you
  • you tend to prioritise other tasks
  • you often come up with error messages
  • clicking on a unknown link or button creates anxiety

You’re probably familiar with the need for computer updates. Every now and again your computer or phone will let you know there is a new version of iTunes or Adobe or Firefox. Website software is no different.  It is continually updated to keep current with the software it relies on, or to fix bugs, or to add new features.

Websites are not a set and forget proposition.  

So, we become your partner… Ascent Publishing can help you with your WordPress site.
