One of my goals in starting Shout It Out Design was to empower small business owners to build and manage their own web presence. Too many companies out there force their clients to go through them to update content on their website. I’ve heard it again and again from clients. These companies do this because they have complete control over their clients which forces their hand if they try to move to another website design company.
When I began looking for a platform that would not only allow me to build great websites, but allow my clients with a wide ranging technological skill set the ability to update their own content, I was happy to have found WordPress.
With WordPress and a little bit of training, my clients are able to log into their own sites and manage content as they see fit. Many of my clients still rely on me to make changes for them – but that is a choice, not a restriction.
So the answer is yes. Clients of Shout It Out Design are able to make changes to their own websites. But they also have the security in knowing that I’m there to help them out if they need.
