Our WordPress Website Design Process
At Matter Solutions, we make it our mission to deliver results that produces measurable returns online. Creating great website designs is our passion, we love to see our clients happy. When we create something new it’s more than just code and design – it’s about bringing to life an idea.
Website Kick Off – Planning
Having been a Brisbane Web Designer since he emigrated to Australia in 2006 Ben will be the one you meet with to plan the new WordPress website for your business.
Ben isn’t actually a hands-on designer, but he has worked with designers since the 2000 when Matter Solutions first began (in London) and since using WordPress from 2008 has trained and worked with some of the most respected people in the local WordPress community. These people are now doing some of the best work web design in Brisbane has to offer, i.e. now working in government and big ad-agencies.
The Kick-Off meeting centres on your content, what you want to say and need to say (usually based on Search Marketing research Ben does before the meeting) and we help you through a detailed web design briefing process.
The sites that we make are focused around a number of main factors. They need to be conversion-focused, easy to update, easy for your visitors to use, have a responsive design (great for mobile), easily trackable using analytics and designed specifically for users.
We take the information gathered in the “Kick Off” and build you a private website only you and we can access. We work on that to add content (and provide you with training) and help layout pages for you.
Creating websites is an art, and something we are very well skilled in. Our team has been developing their skills in WordPress for many years now to great success.
It’s important to create for the users, as an agency we need to work out exactly what your potential customers want.
As a Search Marketing Agency we have to look at the keywords for your site and your services and make sure we build around the words your audience use to help them find what they are looking for when they search. We even use advanced tech-tools to understand what humans are looking for in websites that are already successful in Google.
Our designers are exceptionally focused on User Experience (UX) and Customer Experience (CX). This means that when we use Search data, these UX skills and exceptional graphic design ability we are able to create truly stunning websites that are, most importantly, are super effective for your (potential) customers.
Deployment – Going Live
When a website has been designed, built, content-entered, content laid out to be effective and proof-read over and over we confirm that you, the client, is ready to go live.
We work with your hosting company, or set you up on our high performance and super-security WordPress hosting to make your website live quickly and efficiently.
Being passionate about exceptional design doesn’t mean we’re not highly technical too. We work on every little detail of the website go live, even preparing the go live to ensure not one email goes awry during DNS changes and every single enquiry or lead is captured.
Our team in Brisbane can help you every step of the way on your journey of creating your dream. We’ve created lots of websites in Brisbane over the years here at Matter Solutions and every one of them has been special to be a part of. These initial kick-off sessions usually go for 1.5-2.5 hours, we learn about your business and everything you stand for. Our process includes: The sign off, initial planning, data gathering, design process, content entry, review & delivery and finally the go-live.
WordPress websites have become increasingly popular in recent times. There is a reason it is the most used Content Management System in the world.
Most website designers in Brisbane these days use it as their main content management system because of its flexibility and ease of use by normal business people. There are constantly plugins that are being developed and updated to make almost anything possible. Some of the smartest minds in website development have been working to create this truly powerful platform.
Professional Website Design Team
At Matter we pride ourselves on being experts at website development, we have some incredibly talented people on our web team. Our team has worked with WordPress for over 10 years. We’ve developed our own base in called Matter Kit which allows us to create stunning projects at low budgets. Our development team have worked on some truly beautiful websites that our clients have loved. When we build it we look at all aspects, it has to be functional, it has to be quick, it has to be SEO optimised and it has to be perfect for the users visiting.
Our team takes pride in its work and we bring passion to the table. We would love to show you what we can do for your website and your business. If you are interested and looking for a team who are easy to work with then get in touch today. At Matter we do things a little different, we’ll get all the information about your new site and exactly what you want out of it. But often we’ll give you recommendations and lead you in a different direction, we build for the end user and that can sometimes be misaligned with the clients thinking of how they use the site. We base our decisions off data and don’t do any guesswork, it’s why our projects are so successful.

Our office is located in the CBD and most of our teamwork from home in and around South East Queensland. Most of our clients are in the SE Queensland region but we also service clients all over Australia and have built websites for the Police Service in Samoa and even years ago an advanced customisation of WordPress for a huge probation service in the UK.

We mainly service clients in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth & New Zealand.
Do I meet with the WordPress developer?
We find that the process runs a lot smoother if we can meet face to face but some of the best website projects we didn’t even meet the client until long after the project was finished, e.g. we created a new website for the Samoa Police service, this was an excellent project, see reviews they left for us on Google and Facebook (below), all the communication was done over video conferencing, usually Google Hangouts.
