Self-managed

Should never mean, you are on your own!

WordPress Pilots is a branch of the long running and successful Sunshine Coast (Queensland) advertising and design agency, Red Lid Creative.

Our sole purpose is to add professionalism and real value to WordPress websites, for businesses and special interest groups.

While it is true that WordPress is the most popular and simple to use of all CMS sites, it is not secure out of the box and requires specialist knowledge to keep to secure and professional design services to keep it looking unique to your brand.

WordPress Pilots will help you get a great site off the ground and train you so you can fly your new site to greater heights. We can fix a broken site or give it a boost to make it run better and actually work for your business.

Self-managed should not mean you are on your own and we offer great ongoing support and advice.

Check out all the ways we help you under “services” at the top of page menu.

Website Rescue!
A WordPress website is dynamic and not static and as such, will not function perfectly well for all time, without attention. Technology changes, web software updates and things just stop working. In addition plugins become insecure and as a result may even be hacked! Website designs also age in look and functionality, in such cases, you need a design salvage crew.

Stuff they won’t tell you about WordPress

  1. Despite relative ease of use, WordPress is fraught with security and setup issues. These will suck the life out of your project. The bad guys now spend tons of time just working out ways to vandalise your site, for all sorts of nefarious reasons or just because they can.
  2. A powerful, high performance WP site is not the same as a DIY setup It is like comparing a bicycle to a race car, content is king and unless the builder understands advertising and marketing, at best you will get a pretty good looking dud.
  3. Anyone with some tech skills can build a cheap WordPress site, but as in all things business, you get what you pay for.

Do you have the time to become a WordPress genius on top of your other responsibilities?

Are you an advertising guru, able to create lasting connections with your customers through well written content and creative ideas?

We are really good at this stuff and you should get the site you deserve

Get smart, build your business with your skills and employ the WordPress Pilots to safely set up and creatively design a website for you. In addition to development, we can manage the technical hoohaa and give you exclusive access to our training facility. So if you want to earn your wings and fly solo, you can do it with less risk of a crash.
