Introducing "TheAustinDude.com" (How to Get a Custom WordPress Site Easily and Inexpensively)

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

Over the past week or so, a number of people have mentioned and/or asked about my new blog header and the matching buttons in the signature of my posts.  Well, it's all part of a branding campaign for a site that I am "officially" launching today:  http://theaustindude.com

I intend to use this going forward as a place to write about local events, real estate stuff, and whatever else interests me.  I will share many of those posts here on ActiveRain as well. 

As part of our continuing efforts at 210 Consulting to provide our clients with a one-stop shop for their online marketing needs, we are now offering custom-designed WordPress sites at a reasonable price (starting at $750).  For more details and to see additional samples, visit this page.

Our turnaround time is typically very quick, and we strive for 100% satisfaction with the design process.

Here's a screenshot from the main page of the "Dude" site (click through to check it out if you like):

 

What’s included in our WordPress Package?

  • Installation of latest version of WordPress
  • Installation of 15 of the latest versions of powerful plugins designed to help bolster your sites SEO & social presence.
  • Creation of custom header and installed on site.
  • Theme customized to colors of your choice.

 

Here are a couple of screenshots from other sites we made recently:

 

 

If you have any questions at all, feel free to call or email me anytime, or visit us at http://210consulting.com.

We would love to help you with a new site of your own!

I think Mike should get an award for his comment :)

A few mentioned the pictures in the site that move... I wanted to take a second to say, that this was actually not done in flash, which means Google can index each individual picture helping majorly with the overal SEO of the site.

Lisa- I'd pay money to see Jason surfing. :)

LOL Greg- actually there are several others who have come before us here.  We just got tired of dealing with vendors that didn't deliver the results they promised.  After a few REALLY bad experiences, we decided it was time to branch out and do the work ourself.  No more waiting on someone else to finish work that I was having to go back behind and correct anyway.

Hey Keith- Wel, the story is basically on our site under the about sections... 210 Consulting.

Debe! Hiya my dear! How are you doin?

Robert- Our goal behind starting to design these custom sites was to exactly that, provide affordable sites with a great customer service side to get the work completed in a timely manner to the specs the buyer asked for.
