What I Do

WordPress Services

Your website is designed with a software content management program called “WordPress.” In addition, certain modules are installed (like an event calendar or contact form) which are called “Plugins.”  In order to keep your website running smoothly and up to date, WordPress and the WordPress community routinely come out with updates that protect your site from security hacks or enhancements to make your site run better. Updates can happen daily, weekly or sometime over months.

WordPress updates are critical to your website.  Not only is WordPress (the software that makes your site run) itself updated, but many times the plugin updates contain security plugs and fixes so your site remains safe.  If you already have a WordPress website, but you don’t have the time to keep up with the changes, I offer several packages that will take care of this for you. Payments can even be deducted automatically from your account until you cancel upon request.

MILANO411.com was launched three years ago with the help and incredible design talents of Lisa Drew. Lisa is “web diva” of design in our eyes and helped transform a simple idea by three American Italophiles who have an obsession with all things Milanesi; into a functional and sexy GUI layout. Lisa interviewed my creative team and easily translated our ideas into reality. I highly recommend her services. Ciao from Milano…”

With her musical background and artistic understanding, she gleaned in a short time what my objectives were. I needed this website to further my brand and include all of the features that would give me the professional credibility essential for my advancement. Lisa explained the options, how they would be executed and what I needed to do to make the website my internet calling card.
