About Anphira, LLC
Working with Anphira for WordPress Development
If you are looking for something quick, book one of our consults. If you are looking for a maintenance/care plan or looking for a website remodel or a brand new website, then you’ll start with a short intro call to discuss your website and your goals. After this short intro call, you’ll either go straight onto a maintenance plan, or proceed towards a larger project.
Larger projects (such as new website builds or remodels) go into either a one day build or into a project plan.
What is the one day build process? This is normally a one day build to get your website quickly brought up to date. Yes, remodel your website in one day. After this, you can add functionality or design improvements. This a very cost-effective and popular approach chosen by most of our clients.
What’s a project plan? A project plan involves talking with you and reviewing both where you are and where you’d like to be with your website and making a detailed plan to get there including associated costs. It takes hours to develop a good project plan, and as such it is a paid service. The project plan is then yours to do with as you’d like (including taking it to another developer if you so choose). Longer projects are all done in phases, where at the end of each phase you get a deliverable. To begin a phase you must fund it, we do not chase payments after work is complete.
Please note that we do not accept requests for proposals. If you are a reliant on a government contract which requires multiple bids, please go elsewhere. Other agencies that take RFPs will pad a lot of extra money onto their bids to cover the costs of creating unpaid project plans.
Maintenance clients are part of our Worry-Free WordPress care plan program. They’ve gotten back hours of their lives and hours of sleep knowing that we take care of their website maintenance.
These are for clients who aren’t yet ready for a long term commitment. Some of the popular uses of this:
- One-time maintenance
- PSD to WordPress builds
- Questions about hosting and WP setup
- Security & backup solution setups
We work with marketing & SEO agencies handling their white-label maintenance and WordPress development.
Contact us to discuss an ongoing white-label agreement (if you are looking for a short term white-label please see the a-la-carte clients section)
Anphira helps companies serious about their web development
If you are looking for a long term development partner who will develop a relationship with you, your business, and your website, then we might just be your last developer! Almost all of our clients have gone through several developers before, trying to cut costs, trying to go with shiny firms, and just getting frustrated.
Most of our clients have found that we are their last developer, that they can finally stop worrying about development, and focus on everything else in their business.
Based in Ellicott City, MD
Anphira is based out of Ellicott City, MD, but works with clients across the United States. The good news is, we have a lot experience working with remote clients, and we have a LOT of processes in place to make remote work easy on you.
We do not offshore work, and only work with freelancers in the US.
I appreciate her explaining and educating me along the way. For example, the company wasn't receiving contact form submissions. Gen informed me that the designer had set up form routing in a far from optimal way.
She educated me as to why the mail wasn't coming through (flagged as spam) and recommended an affordable and scalable solution to correct the problem. I highly recommend hiring Gen!
Making money is great, but so is doing good. To make the world a little better, we donate at least 5% of our website development to non-profit organizations through pro bono projects. Currently, we do the majority of our pro bono work through Catchafire. You can see our current impact here.
Latest total: $100,266 worth of services donated to non-profits
