BSO Digital uses WordPress as our preferred CMS platform. It boasts 64.1% of the CMS market share in 2021. WordPress is user-friendly, robust, and scaleable.
BSO Digital offers a variety of convenient website packages to suit every business and budget size. They include WordPress website design, WordPress development, and 1 year of free web hosting. We can also provide custom WordPress website quotes for more complex projects.
Project briefs usually run for 2 hours and can be done in person if you’re located in Melbourne or virtually over Zoom/Google Meet. During this meeting we will identify the purpose, target audience, competitors, and design style.
You will also be assigned a dedicated project manager who will be there from beginning to end. This gives you one point of contact in the agency, rather than leaving you to contact various different departments. The project manager will be responsible for updating you on the process of your website.
During the project brief we will outline the scope of the project, the project timeline and milestones, as well as a delivery date based on the information provided and your requirements.
Visual design is often shaped on your existing brand elements. This includes logo, brand colours, icons, and fonts. Our web designers will also take into account the client’s requirements and any information provided in the project brief.
Our designers always follow the principles of design. They stay abreast of the latest design trends and are trained in both UX and conversion orientated design, as well as SEO friendly design. Depending on the quote, BSO Digital will also provide a certain number of concepts for approval.
Once you have approved the concepts, BSO Digital will begin building your new WordPress website. Our WordPress developers are based in Melbourne and specialise specifically in WordPress website development. Collectively they boast decades of coding experience.
BSO Digital will ensure your new WordPress website will look and feel like the approved concepts. Your new website will be SEO ready and built for fast loading times. BSO Digital utilises our own, lightweight, base theme that we then build upon to suit your needs.
Testing & Delivery
Our clients always have full access to the development – or “staging” – website well before the website goes live. This will allow you plenty of time to internally review the site and test out the functionality. It will also give you time to request any changes.
BSO Digital thoroughly tests all new websites on a variety of browsers, screen sizes, and smart devices before the website goes live to check its responsiveness. We can also host your website for you or take the website live on your chosen hosting platform.
As part of our ongoing services, BSO Digital can provide training virtually or in-person. We will cover all the WordPress basics with you and teach you how to use any of the custom features we have implemented for you.
WordPress allows you to update your website easily without the need to hire a dedicated in-house WordPress web developer.

WordPress is a CMS or Content Management System and is used as a foundation for most modern-day websites. It’s one of the most flexible CMS’s available online and great for beginners.
WordPress is published under the GNU General Public License (or just GPL). This means it’s free to download, edit, customise and use by anyone. WordPress agencies like BSO Digital use this popular framework to build their websites because it’s developer friendly.
WordPress is generally considered better than most other web publishing platforms like Wix, Shopify, Weebly, etc. as it allows you to do a lot more with the code and design. While Wix is easier for beginners to drag-and-drop website elements and “design” their own website, WordPress allows you to create a completely unique site with custom code.
A WordPress developer is responsible for the back-end and front-end development of a website. This includes creating a WordPress theme (how the website will look) as well as the functions (how the website will work). WordPress is primarily coded in PHP which is used by 79.2% of websites online.
WordPress requires some knowledge of coding in order to create a great looking website. This is not a “drag-and-drop” style website creator, like Wix or Shopify. Having a coding background will allow you to create a fantastic WordPress website that’s unquie to your business’s brand. This is why WordPress website developers are in such high demand.
WordPress web design is the process of designing the look of a WordPress website. This is usually done by a WordPress design agency and includes creating the overall style of the website on both desktop and mobile. WordPress web designers work closely with web developers to ensure your website works flawlessly and appears just like the approved mockups!
WordPress is a fantastic option for websites. It’s a simple CMS that’s great for beginners. It’s easy to add pages and blog posts and doesn’t require much training. There are many free and inexpensive plugins available, as well as the option to create custom plugins for specific functionality requirements. We recommend WordPress to all our clients.
HTML is static whereas WordPress is dynamic. Pure HTML websites are hard to manage and not very user-friendly. WordPress on the other hand boasts an easy-to-use backend and can be updated sitewide without the need to manually change each page. For more advanced changes we do recommend you enlist the help of a dedicated WordPress development agency.
