New WordPress websites come online everyday and it’s increasing.

If you’re adding and updating content on your website, you must use a Content Management System, or CMS. Using a CMS is therefore a make-or-break proposition, so it’s important that you feel comfortable interacting with your website. That’s why we use WordPress because it’s easy to edit via the WordPress dashboard. Plus… It’s affordable.

The average custom-coded website can hit your pocket anywhere north of €10,000. But why pay so much? Blue Elephant specialises in crafting customised WordPress websites that deliver high functionality AND value for money. So, you can avoid all the high costs associated with a custom-coded website. We can also update the design of existing WordPress websites at affordable rates.
