Website design in a day.

We collaborate with you in real-time to design your new website.


I'm Doug Yuen, founder of EfficientWP. As the company name suggests, I believe in the power of working efficiently. I developed the Website in a Day service to maximize value for my clients, while minimizing wasted time and productivity.

With this service, you get my full, focused attention for an 8-hour day. Typically, this is from 9am to 5pm PST, but times are flexible.

Still skeptical? You're probably used to hearing that a web design takes weeks (or months).

This is how I do a better job, and in just one day:

  • Dedicated focus. Multitasking is a productivity killer. When we focus on your website for the entire day, output increases dramatically.
  • Better communication. We'll use Skype or Google Hangouts to talk and screen share. It's much faster and more efficient than back and forth emails. You'll see your feedback implemented immediately, and in a fraction of the time.
  • Knowledge, skill, and relentless practice. With 18 years of practice, and the last 7 exclusively working with WordPress, I know WordPress inside and out. I've gotten extremely fast, developing an arsenal of time-saving shortcuts, presets, and code libraries over the years.

Customer Testimonials

Doug's "design in a day" package was an efficient way to get a great site built, fast. I appreciated being able to communicate and collaborate with Doug in real-time to get changes done on the fly.

I was lucky to meet Doug at a networking event in March 2010, and since that time he has helped to transform my business. In addition to the design, he optimized my company site for the search engines and the results have been tremendous! I have only met a few people that have been as knowledgeable as Doug in their fields. Last but not least, he makes sure that my website is always updated for security purposes which past web designers didn't even mention to me.

As the owner of Take Away Gourmet, I had very high expectations for the type of website I wanted to create. I was very pleased with the work done by EfficientWP for my latest website redesign, custom designed to meet the high demand for simplicity as well as cutting edge creativity to coincide with what our customers have come to appreciate and expect from Take Away Gourmet!

Having spent literally 100s of hours developing sites on WordPress, only to have them hacked or perform really badly, we were losing faith in the platform. Since we moved the site onto EfficientWP, we have had supreme performance coupled with the peace of mind that the site isn't vulnerable to hacks. We highly recommend EfficientWP to anyone who values their WordPress site.
