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!!!
With more than 60 million users and over 25,000 plugins available, it is now a fully developed platform capable of running some of the most wonderful websites on the 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…
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”!
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.
We had Aurelien Jondeau from “Creative Elements by Aurelien” come to our home to set up some electronic issues that we were unable to do ourselves. Aurelien is a great listener, did all the required tasks and like the terrific teacher that he is, he reviewed what he had done, I took notes on all the steps and he verified/corrected them, and he left us a very happy pair. We can now use our TV as we had planned, use the ‘Apple TV’ and run a slide show from both the Mac and PC computers through the TV or the iPhone. The truth is that we are not that tecky even though we have a lot of tecky stuff around, however, with Aurelien’s direction, everything works and it is all wonderful. BTW, did you know that you can use your iPhone as a lazer when showing slide shows on the TV? Very cool!
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.
[…]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.
Thank you for sharing your time and expertise with the ACAD Jewellery+ Metals senior students. Your ability to deliver the information on how to navigate WordPress has given the artists the confidence to build their web presence. The group has commented on how the mystery of building a comprehensive and well design website is now a part of their creative tool box! We appreciate what we have learned from you and will be putting our new knowledge into practise.
Aurelien is a superb trainer in the creative use of ipad. His vast knowledge of Apple programmes and his remarkable teaching ability are outstanding. He is well organized, personable and brilliant in his suggestions,enthusiasm and content review.
I was referred to Aurelien by a good friend. He had done an amazing website for her, and I wanted to update my practice website as well. From the beginning Aurelien was very thorough and made sure all of our requirements were met. He spent a lot of time with me one on one designing the website, the colors, and a new logo. I am very happy with the final result, we have received so many compliments from patients and colleagues on the user friendliness and the look and feel of the website. Thank you Aurelien, your hard work and attention to detail has really made a difference for our practice.
Aurelien is a highly-focussed professional who delivers superb customer service. He went beyond my expectations with a technical challenge that I had and I highly recommend him to assist any person or organization in need of sharp, fast, reliable results. Thank you Aurelien.
The use of Creative Elements by Aurelien, to help us create a new logo for our company along with refine our web presence, was a great success. Aurelien took the time to: really understand our business; our successes; the keys to which we believe make us unique; along with direction we are moving towards. His creative ideas helped us establish a solid foundation for the communication and advertising needs of our business, not only with the refinement of our logo and website, but the integration with other social media channels like LinkedIn. Outside of the technical expertise Aurelien brings to the table, he is also very scope, schedule and cost focused allowing us to stay on task, and on track, for the delivery of this project. With the success of this project, we’ve made the easy decision to engage Creative Elements for additional services and support. We are truly happy with what he delivered and where we are going.
