When you decided it was time to create a website for your business, did you ever imagine yourself designing it? With Managed WordPress Hosting, you have all the tools you need to create a website on your own, no problem.
Managed WordPress Hosting Starter Sites are similar to Themes. Think of them as ready-to-use website templates that have been professionally designed and laid out for you, reducing the time and cost it takes to build a business website.
Our Starter Sites are suitable for a range of business types and industries. In this post we’ll be taking you through the Workspace Starter Site, which is perfect for agencies, consultancies, small businesses, and corporate websites.
What is the Workspace Starter Site?
Workspace is a business website created to showcase your vision and values, your uniqueness, and your innovation – the type of website that impresses customers and attracts new talent to your business.
The Workspace homepage takes your visitor on a journey, one message at a time, starting with your brand promise and services – the key information that lets them know they’re in the right place. You can talk about your passion, your company culture – everything that makes your business stand out.
Designed for a smooth user experience
They say the eye always falls on the left, which is exactly where you will find the menu and sitemap – where your visitor expects them to be.
Every aspect of your visitor’s experience has been considered, including the colour scheme used. According to the marketing discipline of colour psychology, the use of blue is meant to promote trust and security in a brand and is often chosen by corporate entities for this reason. Workspace also features blocks of gray, which is indicative of practicality and maturity. These contrasting colours are easy on the eye and create a sleek user experience.
It’s all in your hands
Workspace contains demo content and images, ready to make your own. Use the WordPress Block Editor to drop in your own copy and images and that’s your website done.
To help you test your website functionality and changes safely, you have a free staging environment – or testing site, you can use to build your website or make changes that will not affect your live website. All changes you make can be copied across to your live website with a single click from your Control Panel. You can turn on Privacy Mode on both your staging website and live site to restrict access until you’re 100% satisfied.
And if you’re still nervous about designing your own website, don’t worry. We’ll never expect you to jump in without a guiding hand.
