Managed Wordpress Platform

We set you up for success and guide you as internet advertising evolves. We manage all the details, you participate at whatever level you wish.

You and your staff focus on your business while we focus on your website using the best tools for taking advantage of internet advertising. We manage all Wordpress setup, hosting, configuration, maintenance, recommendations, social networking strategy, and ongoing SEO.

Your role with your website is optional but ideally some ongoing participation by someone in your company is ideal for keeping and generating clients. That person will focus on evolving and sharpening page content, and hopefully post new blog posts on a weekly, or monthly basis. Each blog post can be setup to automatically post to your social networking pages. You can make changes directly to pages and your blog using the Wordpress Dashboard, the Wordpress Desktop application, or just send changes and additions to us to post. You participate with page and blog content at whatever level you are comfortable with including all updates or none. Either way, you can lean on our expertise when needed.

Step 1: Choose Managed Wordpress Hosting over cPanel

Wordpress pro-level features speed up your website which means both a better visitor experience, and better SEO. A better visitor experience means your bounce rate will drop. Security will give you peace of mind. Easily implemented advanced features will give your website pizazz.

Best of breed internet marketing using leading technologies and techniques.

This is your ongoing monthly fee. Initially, we'll have a small project to bring your website into our platform (billed hourly).

Prestwood Wordpress Stack

Wordpress is a powerful platform with many free and low-cost plugins that give you a competative edge over your competitors. The biggest problem with Wordpress is discovering what combination of hosting, caching, CDN servers, Wordpress plugins, and features give you the functionality you need to maximize your internet investment. A big and busy website does not mean a slow website. When you visit a large complex website like, they present to you fresh up to the second content, and a lot of it! At any time, their site is presenting a page of content in under a second that includes dozens of pictures and lots of text. The goal of our ever evolving Wordpress stack is to give you similar power whether you sign up for our $25/month plan or our full package.

Standard Coding Features:
Optional features to give your website an edge over your competitors. Implementation billed hourly using best-of-breed tools including Astra Pro theme, Astra Plugins, Elementor Pro, Ultimate Addons for Elementor, etc.

Design Add-Ons

Design and Connect Social Media ($100 per social site)

Social networking is a business best practice to help drive visitors to your website, keep existing customers, and to raise your SEO.

Recommendation: We strongly suggest you limit your extended social media presences to sites you are good at. It is best to be good at one or two then to be bad at all of them. We recommend you starting with a blog on your business website that is hooked up to both Facebook and Twitter with auto-publish features turned on. Then, your goal is to have someone on your staff write one new "post" every week or month.

Suggested Social Media:
  • Facebook: Appropriate for all businesses and organizations.
  • Twitter: Appropriate for all businesses and organizations.
  • Youtube: A Youtub channel is appropriate if you regularly create new videos--as few as 2 or 3 a year is fine.
  • LinkedIn: Most appropriate if you wish to interact with employees, ex-employees, etc. We usually skip this social network for most clients.
  • Pinterest: Most appropriate if you are a blogger publising at least one new article per month.

Modern Landing Page

A landing page presents a product, service, or event on one page with an action event. The page makes use of modern parallax and other effects. Each website can, and perhaps should, have one or two fancy landing pages.

Design Choices

Whether you choose Starter Theme or Custom Theme above, here are some design choices to think about. For Starter Theme, you are limited to whatever the theme does, but we can try to match a theme to your design choices. For Custom Theme, we can use unlimited options including

Header Options

Header Style
  • Traditional: (Default) Color or image background. If dark color or image, we use a white logo.
  • Modern: White background header. Simple. Elegant.
  • Transparent: Header is blended in with every page. Elegant. Fancy.
Header Width
  • Full: (Default) ...
  • Content: ...
Logo Position
  • Left-Inline: (Default) Slimmer vertical profile.
  • Center: Open space vertical profile (breathes a bit more).

Step 4: Add Ongoing SEO Maintenance ($145/month Yearly Agreement)

SEO is best when worked monthly by a professional. With our SEO strategy, we use a combination of our experience, current white-hat SEO practices, and best-of-breed tools. Our tools include myHostCafe SEO tools, our premium SEO Pro plugin (included), and Jetpack SEO tools (included with Jetpack Premium whish is required). Of course, our best SEO tool is our experience.
