Building a WordPress Website
Having a WordPress website is easy to manage and update content on the go. The maintenance of a WordPress site is cheaper compared to a coded from scratch site. Being a Web designer myself, it was easy to layout the site’s overall flow and built Responsive UI Components for mobile, web and tablet.
Initially created a business profile on Google My Business and Created social media posters for special events, campaigns, and promotional offers based on brand consistency.
