WordPress design for busy professionals who can’t wait.

Why Me?

I’m Doug Yuen, founder of EfficientWP. I’ve been building websites since 1998, and focusing exclusively on WordPress since 2008. I’ve spoken at several WordCamp conferences around the country and even co-hosted a WordPress podcast, WPcast.fm.

I’m currently based in Portland, Oregon, where I’m also one of the organizers of the Portland WordPress Meetup.

  • Quality and transparency. When you hire me, the work is not outsourced. I’m not giving someone else access to your website.
  • Fast turnaround. I’m always working to improve my efficiency. I can build sites quickly, sometimes in just one day.
  • Ongoing availability. After your initial project, I’m available for changes, large or small. I can also maintain your site regularly.
  • Long term approach. I look to build websites optimally from the start, following best practices and my own experiences to avoid expensive rebuilds. I always keep security and reliability in mind.

Client Testimonials

Doug came highly recommended from a friend and he exceeded all of my expectations. Working together in real time allowed the process to be really seamless. Doug not only incorporated my requested changes but he came back with several ideas I hadn’t even considered, all of which made my blog even better. Thank you Doug and EfficientWP!

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!
