At Wire Creative, we build new websites. But more importantly, we keep the websites that we build and manage updated and secured. We aren't a high-volume website production line. We are long-term website support specialists who pride ourselves on the enduring relationships we have with our clients.
If you exclusively use social media to market your business, you are missing potential customers.
An inexpensive one-page starter site can act as both a introductory brochure and a hub for your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and other points of contact.
Wire Creative knows, so you don't have to.
Maybe you never look at or think about your website, but your potential customers do, and it's often their first impression of your business. What do they see? Do you know?
Websites are like cars, in that they need regular care, from cosmetic touch-ups to engine work.
Systems such as WordPress and Joomla need monthly updates to stay fully functional, and regular backups in case of emergency, special software to keep the hackers at bay, and new content to keep the search engines interested. Even popular do-it-yourself platforms like SquareSpace and Wix sometimes need a professional's touch to make your layouts and content look as good as it does in their demos and commercials.
Don't neglect your most powerful and easy to find marketing tool. Give your website some love with a professional website manager.
Contact Wire Creative to diagnose your website problems, fix them, and implement a long-term care strategy so that it doesn't break again.
The last thing a new small business without a lot of capital needs is an expensive custom-designed website. Wire Creative's Starter Sites bundle many of the same features we offer our high-end clients into a lightweight package that can be deployed quickly and without burdensome costs.

Search engine optimization isn't rocket science, but there are also no easy sure-fire ways to become first on Google. Don't trust anyone who promises that!
What Wire Creative can do is get your site in its best shape for search engines to understand and reflect the value of your website; and Wire can help train you in the best-practices for adding new content that will keep your site relevant within its market.
We support a lot of WordPress websites because there are a lot of WordPress sites out there, and most of them need help. We don't like WordPress, because most WordPress sites are made by graphic designers who are only interested in how the site looks, and care little about how the software works. Many are simply looking for a cheap, fast turnaround and aren't concerned for the future of your website.
We can help fix and secure WordPress websites. But we can also help you migrate your inflexible, clunky, broken and poorly configured WordPress website to another system that is less prone to junk development and hacking.
Wire Creative has over 10 years of experience building, managing and supporting Joomla websites. If you need to upgrade Joomla from an older version to the latest release, or migrate a website from WordPress or another CMS into Joomla, or if you have a broken Joomla website that needs troubleshooting, we can help.
We have experience with a broad selection of popular Joomla extensions and templates, including RSForm Pro, Yootheme, Advanced Module Manager, JCE, Akeeba Backup, sh404SEF, and many many more. Ask us for help with your Joomla problems, or for training in how to get better results from your Content Management System.
At Wire Creative we have decades of experience managing web hosting, email and domain names. These technical services can be tricky and confusing to manage if they're not your usual beat. We deal with them every day.
Wire believes in separating these services: Use a website hosting company for your website. Use an email service for your mail. Use a domain registrar for your domains. Never buy a bundled package of "get started" website services.
If you use Wire, however, we can be your single point of contact for managing all of your online services. We can act as a virtual bundle of domain name, website and email, getting you the best performance from each along with the convenience of a bundle.
Call us before you get started signing up for domain registration, websitehosting and email hosting services, so we can get your small business set-up the right way.
A few years ago Google started to penalize sites without SSL encryption by decreasng their search reputation and adding a "not secure" notice in Chrome. Not all sites need SSL to protect their data, but now they need it just to maintain a good search engine presence. Thankfully, basic SSL certificates are much less expensive and easier to install than they used to be. Your web host might already offer you free SSL and you don't know about it, or maybe you can get a better deal hosting your site somewhere that does.
