Are you a new business needing an awesome new website?

Does your current WordPress web design look outdated?

Have you rebranded and need a redesigned website that matches your new branding?

Looking to move from Wix, Squarespace, Shopify or another platform to WordPress?

Well, if you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you’ve come to the perfect place.

I offer WordPress web design in Sydney to businesses based in Australia and across the globe. And in today’s competitive digital world, it’s important to have an SEO-optimised website.

Why? It’s a crucial part of your business’s online presence to:

  • get found by your ideal humans, and
  • stand out from your competitors to attract more business

Let’s face it. Most humans these days have internet access. And it’s now normal for humans to search online for the products and services they want. Which means you need an SEO-optimised website to get found by those humans.

Some business owners are comfortable using a big web design agency. But if you’re after a more personal touch, then you’ve landed in the right place.

Not only can I help you with your WordPress website design, I can help you with your SEO-optimised content as well.

Why use WordPress as your website’s Content Management System?

I love using WordPress as my website’s Content Management System (CMS) for many reasons.


It’s great for creating an awesome website that matches your brand. There are many themes and plugins availabile, meaning you can design a site that suits your brand.


Easy to use

WordPress isn’t too scary to use. I’ve trained many clients to update and maintain their own WordPress website. And there’s plenty of resources available to improve your skills.

Open-source software

This means two things. First, the platform is free (it’s the domain name and hosting you pay for). Secondly, you can customise it the way you like it.


The most perfect website won’t be successful if it doesn’t attact any visitors. Because of how it’s coded, WordPress sites tend to rank higher than other websites.


WordPress is the most popular website CMS in the world. It powers over 40% of the world’s websites including many well-known brands.


You can use WordPress for different kinds of projects. Some examples are blogging sites, business websites, online stores, online memberships and courses.

Working with Rachel was a breeze from the very beginning. I understood the process and what to expect before she delivered not only what I requested, but more. She picked up on things I hadn’t considered and made proactive suggestions to make my website pop, as well as making it easy to read and user-friendly. Highly recommend.

Ignite Content

Rachel built my writing portfolio site. She was extremely professional and capable. She presented me with several options to guide me towards something I was really happy with. She was very communicative throughout the process, patiently accommodating my schedule. I always felt like customer satisfaction was her top priority. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Frequently-asked questions

How long does it take to design a WordPress site?

This can vary, depending on the size and complexity of your site. Generally, it takes around four-to-six weeks for a 5-7 page website. A smaller website takes less time and a complex site over 15 pages can take up to 10 weeks.

You’ll need to be able to give me your website content to ensure that there’s no delay in your project. This includes video links, images and written object. If you’re struggling to write your own website content, check out my SEO website copywriting service.

What about SEO?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is an important part of your website. And it’s not only about the keyword research and weaving your chosen keywords into your website’s written content. It’s also about designing your site so that it’s optimised for SEO in a technical sense.

There is some standard SEO work included in my WordPress website design services. If you’re looking to maximise search engine results for your website, feel free to get in touch and ask about my SEO services.

Will my WordPress website be secure?

I’ll install and setup a WordPress security plugin on your designed or redesigned website. It’s a free plugin. However, I do recommend upgrading to a paid security plugin for maximum security.

Can you help me with my website copywriting?

Many business owners get stuck writing their own website, sales page and blog content. Not only do I do WordPress web design, I’m also an SEO copywriter. And as I’m not a huge digital marketing agency, you’ll get the personal touch by working with me, instead of having to deal with multiple people.

I'm not based in Australia. Can you still help me?

I sure can. I’ve worked with businesses based in New Zealand and the UK as well as Australia-wide. Technology allows me to work with you, regardless of where you’re based.
