No matter how easy it is to use Concrete5, you'll first have to deal with installing it and setting it up.

That includes dealing with server and database stuff and understanding the nuts and bolts of websites' best practices.

To the uninitiated, it means a daunting and potentially frustrating process.

To the technically challenged it's gut-wrenching scary…

The DIY way?

Concrete5 is simple to install and you could learn to DIY your Concrete5 installation.

It's a good way to learn…

Until things go south and leave you with a broken half-installed website.

It also takes you away from growing your business and that might not be the best use of your time.

The Concrete5 community forum is full of users stuck in the very first stages, wasting hours—if not days— desperately hoping for someone to come to their rescue.

Like I said, potentially frustrating and gut-wrenching scary.

The Done Right For You way

To make sure you're off to a good start—and preserve your sanity—I can take care of things for you and give your website the best foundation to grow and thrive.

That includes Installing Concrete5 and setting it up based on your business needs and on some plain—experience-fuelled—common sense.

Some of the settings included are for:

  • Structuring and adding content
  • Preparing for SEO & Marketing
  • Hardening security
  • Improving performance
  • Planning for future development
  • And more…

I had an urgent job I needed to get sorted for a client's site that I had been struggling for days to sort out.

At the 11th hour Nour put a priority on my request and got it done!

Reliable and good - what more do you need in a developer?

The upside

Under my care, both you and your website get personalized attention. Your website gets pampered and you get the tools you need most to work with.

You get to focus on building your business while I give you the best foundation to build on—at a fraction of the time and cost it would take to do it yourself.

There's a catch—I'm busy

I do good work so I have a good reputation and that keeps me busy.

And because I want to keep doing good work I have to use my time wisely so my Concrete5 Installation plans are available by application only.

I need to know more about you

In all honesty, I'm only interested in working with clients who understand the value good foundations and a professionally done installation will add to their website. So—as I said above— my Concrete5 Installation services are available by application only.
