Hopping Mad Designs specialises in designing and building websites with open source WordPress (CMS) content management systems. We also help you migrate from other CMS platforms, including WIX, SquareSpace, Joomla and Drupal, over to WordPress.
WordPress has grown significantly from a modest blogging platform into a powerful must-have CMS for your business. It is super-fast, easy to use, scalable, SEO friendly and very reliable. WordPress is a fabulous choice for developing and managing, and marketing your website.
Throughout Sydney, businesses and companies rely on our WordPress CMS to regularly update their website whenever they like.
Having a CMS integrated into your website allows you to control your content to stay up to date daily. In addition to the function of creating, deleting and managing the pages throughout your website, a good CMS should offer an array of scalable modules. These modules can be coded into your new website or added later on down the track, allowing you to develop and grow your website as your business grows.
Everything about WordPress is search engine friendly. Easy to update titles, descriptions, copy, images, and even give you tips with add-ons like Yoast SEO, you will be on your way to better online Google rankings.
WordPress is scalable as your business grows, which means add ons and plugins so you can use them to develop your website – such as membership areas, galleries, shopping carts, newsletter signups, calendars, blogs and databases. We recommend that most small businesses start with a basic WordPress CMS package, and as the business grows, so can the web add-ons.
Write blogs, articles, news items, press releases and post them online instantly. With WordPress as your CMS, you’ll be a blogging expert & content marketer very quickly. Blogging on your WordPress website is a fantastic way to be perceived as an industry leader. Creating articles relevant to your industry or profession and having them published instantly means more chance of people reading your content. One post, ten posts, doesn’t matter; the more you create, the more likely users will keep seeing your articles when doing their research, leading to more brand credibility.
It has a rapid learning curve. Learning to edit content, and add or delete copy or images on pages, photos, videos, and images is simple and easy.
Using an open-source CMS platform like WordPress can be used by anyone, anywhere in the world. You are not locked into using one web development agency.

WordPress is a popular content management system that’s used to power your website. It’s used to create websites, forums, blogs, eCommerce sites and customised landing pages.
No, we don’t. All our web designs are fully customised but we use the WordPress content management system for the site. Yes, there are many free WordPress templates but we prefer to create our own designs based on the brief given by you. Free WordPress templates are OK for some businesses that require a very small and basic online presence. But, for most businesses that want a unique look and style a customised WordPress web design is the best option. All aspects of your new WordPress website from the look and feel, the style, to the user experience, are designed specifically for your business goals. Essentially, we want to make you look different online.

This all depends on the size and scope of the website. But, for small business basic websites, the timeframe is about 2 to 3 weeks and for larger websites with added functionality like shopping carts or membership areas, it would take 4 to 6 weeks to design and build. This would have to be scoped out during the briefing stage to confirm more accurate timings.
WordPress would have to be one of the safest content management system platforms in the world. They are constantly upgrading their security plugins and will let you know when you should update your plugins. Because it’s such a popular CMS, they have very robust and secure measures that are always evolving to make sure your site is safe from hackers and viruses.
A website design is quoted based on the size and scope of each individual website. The reason for this is because we customise all our designs and this does affect the cost.
We’ll ask a lot of questions at the briefing stage, assess your needs, and give you a quote based on that assessment. Most of our WordPress websites are roughly in the $3,000 – $5,000 range, but can be more or less depending on the work involved. For eCommerce WordPress shopping carts, the cost can go up to $10,000 per site.
In short yes. We make sure your new WordPress website is search engine friendly and has the best chance of ranking on the search engines, especially Google once launched. WordPress is particularly SEO friendly with a dashboard that is geared for search engine optimisation. They even have plugins that will help you with your SEO efforts.
Absolutely! Having a mobile-friendly WordPress website is more important than ever! We make sure your fabulous new WordPress website works on all hand help and mobile devices such as iPhones & Androids.
We are only an email away or phone call away! We’re here to help you as much or as little as you need, and we won’t disappear once the WordPress website is launched. We’ve been doing this for 22 years, so we aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
