WordPress Consultation

One area where we can help you with is very broadly called WordPress Consultation.

Of course Consultation is pretty vague, so please let us explain.

With WordPress Consultation we mean everything that is related to both advice and ad-hoc coding of your WordPress website and is not directly related to Multilingual or eCommerce.

To help standardise things a little bit, we have developed a couple of different WordPress Consultation Services which you can see below.

Clean up hacked site

With WordPress becoming more and more popular, it also becomes a bigger target for hackers with bad intentions.

If your site becomes infected by malware or other kind of hacking, we can assist you to clean up the site and make it safe again.

Site assessment

In many countries we have government regulated “health” checks for automobiles.

Similar to what a car gets to endure taking you around on ever changing road- and weather conditions, during the lifespan of your website it also gets to endure quite a bit of abuse.

The purpose of our Site Assessment is therefore to inspect the general well-being of your website in its current state. We highly recommend to do a full Site Assessment at least every 2 years. Book one now if your site never had one!

Switch to SSL

What is SSL?
SSL is a security protocol and it allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, data on contact- and comment forms, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. It is easy to see if a site has SSL installed as it will show a green lock in the address bar. The Chrome browser even adds the word “Secure” when a site has SSL installed (and “Not Secure” when a security certificate has not been installed).

Since Google has almost made it mandatory to run websites over SSL, many website owners are scrambling to update their sites.

Installing a certificate (via cPanel) is step 1 of the process, but in most cases a little bit more work is needed to make sure that a site is 100% secure without anything broken.

We are happy to help you making the switch to SSL!

Mobile review

Nowadays when a website is not mobile friendly it will simply not show up on the search results pages of Google when the search is conducted from a mobile device.

You can imagine that this can have grave consequences for your business!

During the Mobile Review we first establish whether your website is mobile friendly and if it is, we will offer some points of attention.
If it is not, we will give you different options in order to quickly gain back the potentially lost business.

Speed assessment

Since Google started to give penalties to slow sites, site speed has become an important topic.

There are many reasons why a site runs slower and fortunately even so many ways to make it run faster.

If you let us do a Speed Assessment on your website, we tell you exactly where things can be improved and how!

Site Migration

Files need to be moved and more important, the database needs to be moved too. And once it has been moved, you need to change certain strings in the database to make sure that the content is served from the new server instead of the old one.

Many people find Site Migration very intimidating and not something to get enthusiastic about.

Fortunately for you we are! We are more than happy to take care of the migration on your behalf, whether it is for your own site or the site of your client!

Need urgent advice?

Sometimes all you need is to call someone for some straight up and direct advice.
We understand that and therefore also have a calling service in place.


Site / SEO audit

The difference between a Site Audit and the earlier mentioned Assessment is that the Audit focuses on whether your current website does what it is supposed to do and has a strong focus on whether the SEO is doing what it is supposed to.

During the Site Audit we focus on several areas, for instance:

  • SEO
  • Conversions
  • Appearance, Layout and User Experience
  • Messaging and Content

The Site Audit is therefore the perfect tool to assess the focus points for your website renewal!

Help with specific function

If you have started tinkering with code yourself you will notice that it isn’t always smooth sailing and sometimes you spend hours and hours looking for a solution, without any useful results.

In such cases it would be great if you have someone experienced that can look over your shoulder and point you in the right direction or dive into the code for you to give you a working solution.

It actually can save you a lot of time too and we will always tell you what we did to solve your problem, so the next time it occurs, you know what to do!

Custom plugin development

Although we released our first WordPress plugin already a few years ago, in 2013 we really started actively developing them and we now have more than 10 publicly released plugins to our name. We even have a website dedicated to all the plugins we have publicly released: SO WP.

Of course we also use our skills as plugin developer for client projects and there are many websites running a bespoke plugin by BHI Localization for Websites.

We are available for hire for if you need a custom plugin or customise an existing plugin.

Child theme development

Although for professionals it is something that we don’t even think about, it turns out that for the majority of people making a Child Theme is not common practice.

The problem with this is that if your theme receives an update you really only have two choices:
1) update and re-do everything you changed;
2) don’t update and miss out on all the new functionality that has been added to the theme, or worse: miss important security updates.

Neither is a situation you should find yourself in and this alone should be the drive for you to only work with Child Themes.

We can take care of this for you, so you can focus on your own site.

One on one training

If you are getting tired of watching endless Youtube videos to figure out relatively simple things, we offer one on one training sessions.

We can teach you a variety of different things, topics ranging from how to add new content to configuring caching to make a site load faster and from translating content with a translation plugin to doing complicated updates to the software running your site.

Sessions are typically booked as brackets of half an hour.

Plugins assessment

Similar to the general Site Assessment above, but purely focused on the plugins you have installed on your site.

Some people love to install plugins for each and every type of additional functionality. And that is all fine, although sometimes prone to conflicts, especially when these type of plugins could easily be combined into one.

With the Plugins Assessment we will take a thorough look at all the plugins that you have installed and will give our advice on each and every one of them.

QA (for developers)

This WordPress Consultation Service has evolved from the FREE Mini Assessment we offer our site visitors.

Naturally you have done your own Quality Assurance and maybe you have already shown the client the staging site. On top of that it can be very helpful to have a fresh pair of eyes look at the website you have been developing for your client.

Just send us your list of requirements on what the site is supposed to be doing and how and we will include that in our full Quality Assurance for Developers.

Anything else

Of course we cannot cover everything we might be able to help you with here. So that is where this last one is for :)
