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 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.
I had the pleasure of working with Aurelien while having my website redesigned. His patience and sincere enquiry into my vision and goals for the website and my business were invaluable. He was always on time for appointments and took all feedback to heart in an open and professional manner. His ideas and passion for the success of the project inspired me to reach for the best vision possible for my work as a coach. I continue to work with him as I move toward publishing articles and Newsletters as well as considering videos for my site. He is professional at all times and has in depth knowledge of the technical requirements of web development and artistic display. He continues to learn and grow in his own field by studying new technologies and artistic design. His work ethic is exceptional. I have no hesitation in recommending Aurelien to anyone requiring professional web design and construction as well as video and audio projects.
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”!
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.
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.
Aurelien has taken a homemade, amateur video and transformed it into a video that is interesting and easy to watch. He really listens to what you, the customer, would like to portray to your audience and also offers new ideas and advice. A creative, talented and intuitive young man! Thank you Aurelien for making my business more accessible!
I contacted Aurelien to help me learn how to use an Apple computer. Aurelien was extremely helpful and now he works with me on a number of marketing initiatives. Aurelien is one of those guys who ads value at every turn and I am so happy to have him working with me and my team.
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.
Working with Aurelien was a pleasure. To pick only three attributes doesn’t fully describe the service he provides. From the beginning concept of what we were looking for right through to the final product, Aurelien was on target and exceeded our expectations and needs. His timeliness, efficiency and creativity made the project effortless. Aurelien takes the time to understand all aspects of the client. His product and service is a great display of passion and knowledge.
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!
