WordPress + Speed + SSL + SEO
I offer the BEST (not the CHEAPEST!) consulting service on Upwork for loading speed and on-site optimization when it comes to your WordPress website! Specifically, I can optimize your DNS records, web server (VPS), WordPress (cache, plugins, etc) and source code (HTML, CSS, JS, fonts, images, etc) to be more efficient and secure. I am well versed in WordPress (ranked #1 on Upwork), WooCommerce, Nginx servers, CloudFlare, SSL certificates, and SEO.
Loading speed and SSL are now two of the most important factors in Google rankings, whose robots are constantly analyzing your website. Don't get left behind by the competition!
(I am also available for a limited number of long-term SEO contracts where I can address the "bigger picture" for your company across the web, including URL structure, calls-to-action, usability, content optimization, off-site SEO, and more...)

Whether you need a one-time consultation, or fully managed WordPress hosting, I am not shy in making important suggestions that will improve the experience of your customers. I can work alone as a project manager of sorts or alongside your current team members, and I stay in close touch with your team via email, Google Docs, and Skype (only!).
