I'm Doug Yuen, founder of EfficientWP. I have 19 years of web design experience, with the past 8 focused exclusively on WordPress. I've spoken at WordCamps (the official WordPress conferences) across the country - Boston, Philadelphia, Stamford, and Portland, where I currently live. I also co-host WPcast, The Professional WordPress Podcast.
I'm all about working efficiently. I developed the Website in a Day service to maximize productivity and minimize wasted time. Instead of the typical turnaround of weeks or months for a simple website, I do it in one day (and a better job too). Here's how:
- Dedicated focus. When we're both focused on your website for the entire day, productivity and output increase dramatically. A lot more can get done in one dedicated day than in the same amount of time spread out over days, weeks, or months.
- Better communication. We'll use Skype to converse and screen share. It's much faster and more efficient than back and forth emails, and it's easier to discuss design this way. You'll see your feedback implemented immediately, and in a fraction of the time.
- Knowledge, skill, and lots of practice. I've gotten extremely fast, and I've developed many time-saving shortcuts. And when you hire me, you can be sure that I'm the one doing the work - not someone from another country with less experience.
- Long-term vision. I build sites quickly, but I also take care to build them to last. When your site is built the right way, you'll have less to worry about in the future - lower chances of getting hacked, upgrades breaking your site, or future changes becoming difficult.
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!
