Why work with us?

We know you have many choices when it comes to web designers, but we have several advantages over the competition. We’re proud of the things that make us stand out.

Programming Skills

Some WordPress developers aren’t programmers at all. At Solid Red Studios, we can customize the PHP in your WordPress site to provide the exact functionality you need.

Outstanding Customer Service

We use plain language, not confusing technical speak, to talk to you about your website. We want you to understand how your website works and how it can help your business.

Monthly Support

We don’t leave you hanging in the wind once your website is built. We offer monthly plans aimed at keeping your website secure, an essential part of having a WordPress website.

User-friendly Admin

The backend of WordPress can be overwhelming. We create dashboards for your users that are streamlined and easy to navigate. We want your user experience to be positive.

What our clients say
