WordPress and Headway: The Perfect Combination

Why did I start the Home Page Construction Company?

Did I brainstorm different ideas, logically weighing the pros and cons of each? Did I evaluate the potential of various businesses, write business plans and discuss the options with my accountant?

Not exactly…

The truth is, I was asked to create a basic website for a client in my Virtual Assistance business (Short-term Solutions). I’ve used WordPress website themes in the past and I’d heard of a new theme called Thesis and decided to give it a try.

I was amazed! Here was a theme that was versatile, easy to use, and allowed me to create my client’s website in record time.

That started me thinking…

Then I heard about the Headway theme and I was hooked. Flexibility like I’ve never seen in a theme before. Built-in SEO…amazing layout editor…and so easy to use – with a little training, my WordPress savvy clients could change their own content after the site was built!

I was at a National Association of Women Business Owners meeting when I mentioned I was thinking of starting a business building custom-designed websites for under $1,000 and suddenly, I had three websites to create! I knew right then – the Universe was holding open a door and I had to walk through.

The past few months have been a whirlwind of activity. Right away I decided I wanted these sites to be custom-designed, by real graphic designers (not “wanna-be”s like myself). Luckily, I knew of a few fantastic designers that I was able to bring on board.

While deciding what I wanted to convey in the pages of the Home Page Construction Company website, I realized I didn’t have the time or expertise to do the copy justice, so I enlisted the help of an amazing copywriter. In one of my website construction packages, she’s even providing a free website content evaluation!

So, with help from WordPress, the Headway theme, graphic designers and a copywriter, the Home Page Construction Company has been born.

Look around and let me know what you think!
