As an expert WordPress web development agency, we’re outstanding in our field! We can build a site for your business from scratch, and customise key elements of your site to ensure it fits with your business’ standards. 

We work in a way that ensures any elements you wish to keep on the page can stay there without having to completely create a brand new site. Whether you want an entirely new site, a page completely dedicated to one service, or simply want to incorporate some new features into your current site, we’re the people to turn to.

Why choose FireCask as your business’ WordPress web development agency?

FireCask is the perfect fit for your business, as we have worked with and designed websites for hundreds of clients, so our track record is exemplary. Our design services are state of the art and help your website stand out from competitors. Clients we have worked with in the past include the popular app Headspace, beauty website Beauty Bay, Expedia and Viabiotics, among many others. We take the lead when it comes to bespoke WordPress development, with your business at the forefront of all the work we carry out.

As well as WordPress development, we are also able to perform other marketing techniques to help your business thrive. Partnering with many other brands to aid in our digital marketing work, which include WP Engine, IONOS, MailChimp, Klaviyo, Meta and Semrush, we are able to tailor our work and campaigns to suit your business in the best way. 

Semrush enables us to carry out exceptional SEO analysis on your website and business, and Klaviyo allows us to create amazing email marketing campaigns that will communicate your business’ goals to a variety of audiences in a creative and engaging way.

Why does your business need a WordPress web developer?

Your website is a vital part of your business and how you market your services or products to your customers. As a leading WordPress development agency, we can help you to fully communicate and achieve your business goals by making sure you have a great website.  As well as building new websites and updating themes based on the requirements of your business, we also have extensive knowledge of the WordPress plugin landscape. 

WordPress goes hand-in-hand with  some of our other services, just a few of which include Content Marketing, Email Marketing, organic SEO research and NFT Marketing. Having a solid foundation on which to communicate your brand’s message, using keywords and expertly written content can help differentiate your business from others in the industry. 

An expertly crafted website is a fool-proof way of gaining attention and engagement for your business from loyal and new customers and audiences. Using our development expertise, we can also keep on top of any outdated content or any issues that may arise with your website. 

How do we track the success of a WordPress site?

Using mobile-first design, which is at the forefront of e-commerce and web development, we ensure every website we build is compatible with all devices, from desktop to mobile. Google’s algorithm update makes it so that mobile searches are just as important as desktop web searches in terms of rankings. This update came about in April 2015, and since then, it’s become easier than ever to track search terms and volumes made through mobile phones. 

We can build your site from scratch and routinely monitor its success, making us aware of any issues that may arise. We didn’t obtain our reputation as a leading WordPress agency in Manchester for nothing – just check out our case studies

WordPress FAQs

What is WordPress?

WordPress is a piece of software that enables you to build a tailored website from scratch. It is incredibly easy to use, and many websites use it as the basis of their online marketing presence.

We ensure that your website’s design and content are in sync with your company’s brand. There are also numerous plugins and additional features that make it easy to track engagement on your website and the success of the posts you choose to feature.

How is WordPress good for my business?

WordPress is a great tool for a number of reasons, as it can make it extremely easy to tailor a website to your brand or business. From SEO plugins such as Yoast, which helps you see the keywords you rank for and the traffic to your site, to helpful Insights that feature stats and the performance of the page, WordPress is an exceptional SEO tool.

What is the first step in creating a website with WordPress?

If you choose a WordPress web developer to build your site for you, you won’t need to worry about how to create your site, as we will do it for you! However, if you choose to create a website yourself, the first step is choosing a domain name or URL to establish your site. 

You can then choose a template to work from, or start from scratch with a graphic designer or someone proficient in web design to create a layout that’s more tailored to your brand. Choose plugins that will help you maximise the performance and capabilities of your website, and make sure the content you create is relevant and includes keywords.

How can FireCask help build your perfect website?

Not only are we a renowned WordPress development agency, but we also design and build sites with Magento and Shopify, both of which are the largest eCommerce platforms on the web today! With our track record using these sites, it has allowed us to showcase our versatility and expert knowledge in how to tailor a site to your brand.

Whatever your need, FireCask will be able to help you get your website off the ground, or simply maintain and optimise your existing one. Make sure to contact us today for more information.

Our client testimonials

123-Reg Testimonial

When we knew we were ready to re-focus and re-launch our content offering, we knew exactly where to turn. The expertise and in-depth knowledge of WordPress shown by Alex and his team were second to none and that was important in making sure we went beyond more than just a change of theme.
- Tim Fuell, Blog Editor

Asemblr Testimonial

Alex and the team at FireCask exceeded our expectations when we underwent a rebrand. We spoke to a lot of branding agencies before we chose FireCask, and the main reason was their process and their ability to be able to understand what we wanted from the rebrand. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex and his team to anyone wanting to look at branding.
- David Lovett-Hume, CEO

AXYZ Testimonial

FireCask performed a quick turnaround, redesigning and redeveloping our site, migrating our outdated CMS to WordPress all in a 10 week period. Since the launch of the site in December 2016, they have maintained the site and it has felt like they are an extended arm of AXYZ rather than an external agency. FireCask far exceeded our expectations when it came to redesign, redevelop, maintain and advise us on best practices for our site as well as their level of service.
