What is WordPress?
WordPress is an online platform that was used only for blogging in the past. In 2013, it has celebrated its 10th anniversary and is now powering roughly 20% of the World Wide Web!!!

What can WordPress do for me?
There are 2 types of WordPress that are available:1WordPress.com
This is where you would create your own website if you felt like experimenting with it and learning along the way. Your website’s URL will be something like yourbusiness.wordpress.com and it will be hosted on WordPress servers for you. This is a great way to get started but is very limited in terms of future growth and use of fantastic features. 2WordPress.org
This is what a professional WordPress designer would use to design your website.
This time, the WordPress platform is downloaded as a package of files and installed on a server with a reputable host.
Now your web designer can fully customize your website and your URL can be your own domain name like yourbusiness.com.
Investing in a great website solution from a reputable web designer can go a long way to succeed online.
What are themes?
Themes are to your website what the underground foundation is to your home. A great, well developed theme can become a solid and powerful foundation for your website and support you as a long-term strategy.
Reputable WordPress designers constantly work at improving and optimizing their themes which, in turn, help your website always benefit from latest technologies and code standards.
How about plugins, what are they for?
Plugins are little pieces of code that “plug” into your WordPress website to enable a new feature. Some are very small and simple such as adding a Google map to your website and other fully developed e-commerce solutions to help you sell your products online.
Although most plugins are free, be prepared to pay for some that will bring you significant value.
Can I update my own website?
Yes indeed! WordPress is designed as a CMS (Content Management System) which allows users to update their own content. There are different levels of permissions available and depending on your needs and the complexity of the website, your web designer will offer suggestions on how to efficiently setup a CMS strategy.

Here’s what our clients say that makes us blush…
[…]I worked with Aurelien and he was very helpful. […] I thought it would be awesome to be able to have some help with the computer while I was away….just in case! […]I was absolutley delighted to be able to now have tech support while abroad in Mexico. Prior to leaving Calgary, Aurelien came to my house for a couple of sessions to show me how to sign a document without needing to print and scan, among other things he believed I might need to know while out of the country. Each session I have had with Aurelien I have found him to be very knowledgeable and helpful. He is patient and is able to explain in terms that I can understand. I highly recommend Aurelien.
Aurelien was referred to me by a close friend. He is professional and knowledgeable about the online world. Aurelien was patient in answering all my questions and took the time to show me exactly what he was doing behind the scenes on my website enabling me to do it on my own. I always learn something new when we work together.
My husband found Aurelien after googling for Apple training to help us understand and effectively use all of our products, and specifically clean-up the mess we’d made of all of our music and photos. When I was able to play a song sung by my father (long since deceased) on my iPhone and share with people, that was the moment it become clear that what Aurelien provides goes far beyond technology training. I then continued working with him for support in developing my new business, and have made many processes more efficient and professional. As a “mature” couple who’ve stumbled our way through the world of computerized-everything, it’s great to know there’s someone out there that can patiently and effectively answer all of our questions. We have a common tagline in our house now – “just ask Aurelien”!
Aurelien designed a superior website, exceeding our expectations, in time, and at a reasonable cost. He is very proficient and well organized. We have no hesitation in recommending him.
I have been a PC user for years, and when I decided to get an iPad, I worked with Aurélien to learn the most effective ways to use it. He is an excellent teacher: knowledgeable and encouraging. He challenges me to think about how to solve problems on my own. Aurélien has also been proactive in introducing me to several new apps that will make my life easier. I most strongly recommend him.
We have recently opened a guest house. We knew that the success of our project depended mainly on the quality of the website. Calling upon Aurelien’s skills and professionalism through his company “Creative Elements”, we haven’t been disappointed. The website is performing really well, it is praised and loved by our guests who find it attractive, beautiful and easy to use. Thank you for your professionalism and your availability that contributed to a very good start of our project.
After some extensive travelling, and having taken some wonderful photos we wanted to make into books, we called upon Aurelien, from Creative Elements, to teach us how to use Aperture. His expertise, and his patience with us, during our one-on-one appointments was so appreciated. We went off topic several times to ask questions and he was happy to assist us in all areas, ie: organizing our pictures in iphoto, backing up our Macs, tips on how to layout a book, how to fine tune our photos in Aperture and the list goes on. We ended up with a beautiful book from our Africa trip that Aurelien sat with us and helped lay out. Learning in the comfort of our own home and having Aurelien there was excellent. His expertise and calm demeanour is invaluable…… I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Recently our company engaged the services of Creative Elements by Aurelien to help with some projects we were working on. We needed input that was both creative and tutorial. Creative Elements by Aurelien was more than able to deliver in both areas. The work was done on time and on budget and with a sense of understanding of our business model and culture. I would not hesitate to use Creative Elements by Aurelien for future projects.
I had been looking for somebody to create a new website for quite some time, but most people were to “techie” for me and I could not relate to them. When I met Aurelien I right away sensed that he had a holistic approach and had an understanding of the service industry. I am very happy with my website. It is alive and vibrant. I love my new logo and I especially appreciated the process of creating the new logo together with Aurelien, the graphic artist, my husband Willem and myself. I appreciate Aurelien’s patience during the creative process because I needed time to become crystal clear what I wanted. Thank you.
We were very happy with our current website but wanted to make it more mobile friendly. I had approached several firms for a quote but was not happy with their response and pricing. Aurelien a new commercial insurance client to our office approached me to see if can be of any service and after letting him know what I needed he was able to provide me some good options. He setup our website on a great new platform that was very mobile friendly but also enhanced our overall website and made it easier to navigate and use. Aurelien provided me a very competitive price that included not just a mobile site but a brand new site. Aurelien was very easy to deal with and very accommodating throughout the whole process. He is very professional and followed through with the proposal and timelines he promised on. I would recommend Aurelien to any company looking to create a new website or enhance the current one they have.
