Content Management Systems
Editing your website is something you can do, if you have the time and interest in doing so. We have clients who never touch their website, preferring to enlist to for each and every change, and that’s okay. But not all clients are like that. Some clients enjoy the hands-on relationship they have with their website. Regardless of how little or much editing you want to do, we have a solution that will work for you.
With advancement of open source tools like WordPress, editing your own site has never been easier. A WordPress website solution provides a robust platform that will allow administrators easy access and easy editability. WordPress is a popular premade, open-source (meaning community-developed and free) website platform. The advantage to WordPress is that is has a wide variety of functionality built into it, that if you were to have developed from scratch, would take hundreds, even thousands of hours.
When people hear “premade” and “free,” they frequently think “done,” and that is not the case. The WordPress platform requires setup and configuration. You could liken this to a model car kit. Getting the kit is the quick and easy part. Ahead of you are the hours of work and customizations needed before the final product is ready to show.
In addition to the out-of-the-box website infrastructure, one of the best strengths of WordPress is the availability of plug-ins. Plug-ins are little features you can add to a website, some are free, some are paid. In the same way that many third-party manufacturers make cell phone accessories, there are thousands of third-party developers who develop and sell plug-ins specifically for WordPress due to its popularity. These plugins allow you to add features to your website for a fraction of the cost when compared to developing it from scratch. These plug-ins are one of the reasons WordPress websites grow easily along with the organization. As the needs of the site change, there are always a variety of relatively low-cost options available to you.
With sites like WordPress, the cost of ownership generally decreases over time, whereas straight, custom design generally increases over time. Not sure what’s right for your business? Contact us today.

Search Engine Optimization
Does your website need a boost of traffic? We can do that.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of modifying your website to ensure it has maximum visibility to search engines. This can be done through modifying elements on the website, which are called On-Page factors. However, there are other things can be done outside of your website that can also help. These are called Off-Page Factors.
At HPX Media, we know that your website wasn’t built just to look good. It is an investment; it serves a purpose, and you need it to perform so you can see a return on that investment. A great way on see that return quicker is to focus on search engine optimization and to promote your website through search engine marketing.
How much is a lead worth to your business? Search Engine Marketing (SEM) is essentially advertising on search engines. When you search for something in Google, the listings that show up on the right-hand side are ads. Google ads are an excellent way to get viewers to your website quickly.
Some businesses do better with just SEO, others benefit from SEM, but many benefit from both and a well-targeted campaign can give your website the boost it needs to see the traffic you want.
HPX Media is thrilled to partner with with Siren Consulting to bring our clients the best SEO and SEM services. Talk to the professionals at HPX Media today to learn about how SEO and SEM can benefit your business.
