Wordpress.Org Website Designer Review

Wordpress.Org Website Designer Review

We are stoked to be reviewing BrighterVision Website Designer for Therapists

BrighterVision specializes in custom Wordpress.org sites for Therapists. (Not sure what the difference is between Wordpress, Wordpress.com and Wordpress.org- check out the Website Dictionary for Therapists). We aren't super shy about it. We are pretty clear that most therapists are unprepared for managing their own Wordpress.org site. We might even be quoted more than once saying "I hate Wordpress!" hehe So, why are we excited to talk about Wordpress today? 

Wordpress is sometimes the best solution for therapists. However, we recommend that therapists who need or want Wordpress.org sites outsource that puppy to someone awesome. The trouble is, it can get expensive pretty quickly to work with a Wordpress designer. Even more complex, there are only a few Wordpress designers who specialize in working with therapists. 

We are excited today to review a program that has made getting a custom designed and maintained Wordpress site accessible for even therapists starting out.

If you go into Fiverr.com and some other places, you will see that there are offers to do five star reviews of your business or practice all over the place. People will create fake video testimonials for you, tweet fake love to you, and SO much more. Some business owners are tempted to take these short cuts- they assume this will be a quick way to connect with their community.
