Why Do We Use WordPress?

If you are attempting to design your business’s website – or if you have already gone through the process of creating one – then you understand that there are many platform options at your disposal

WordPress is an ideal platform because of its easy-to-learn interface with a wide variety of plug-ins. These plug-ins benefit nearly every aspect of the site, including its search engine optimization capabilities.

And with all of its additional features, WordPress is the most search-engine-friendly platform available, helping you get your pages indexed as quickly as possible.

We are also able to help you further understand WordPress website development through training sessions, in which we will detail the process of adding and editing content, in addition to choosing a template design and using the blog feature strategically. This is recommended for companies that plan on providing their own updates to the site as we move forward.

Case Study Successes

Over the years, businesses have reached out to work with our services. We have worked with a variety of clients to improve their Columbus website developments, along with clients from other cities such as Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago, Indianapolis, and many more cities.

Some of the companies we have shown valuable results for include:

Bruening Glass Works

In this instance there’s one case study that stands out from the rest, Bruening Glass Works. Our team helped transform Bruening Glass Works from a small business operating in the Cleveland area to an international glass repair shop where people from all over the world send their products to Bruening Glass Works for repair services.

This came about when the owner of Bruening Glass Works, Marc approached our team to come up with a solution to improve his website development in Cleveland.

The website averaged about 200-300 visits per month at the time and had trouble reaching clients outside of the Cleveland area.


Through our research we found there was a need for Bruening Glass services internationally, not just in Cleveland,  and from there our team and Marc came up with the necessary actions needed to grow by focusing in on SEO and WordPress development for Marc’s site.

We recreated a simple site design emphasizing calls to action as we redesigned the site through WordPress. Additionally, we set up a blog to target terms about repair projects, created a sister site called waterfordcrystalrepair.com, and helped Marc create a YouTube video to highlight his capabilities.


As a result, Bruening Glass Works is now internationally known and recommended for crystal repair services and his repair services are now the focus of the business:

  • Overall, there was a significant increase in visits to the site per month by 1,528% and 8-16 leads per day outside of the Cleveland area
  • Out of the 8-16 leads per day, 90% of those leads turned into business
  • Along with that, crystal repair ranks number one under keywords and Waterford crystal repair via waterfordcrstalrepair.com also is ranked number one
  • Marc’s YouTube channel has been viewed more than 7,000 times and has helped Marc receive many new business customers.
