Hello! Dwi’n Rhys!

Hello, I’m Rhys Wynne, and I build secure, speedy & SEO friendly WordPress solutions for businesses.

Why I specialise in WordPress web development

I am Rhys Wynne and I am a WordPress development specialist. WordPress is a content management system – which is a posh way of saying “I can build the site, and you can edit the site”. With it you can make simple text changes, upload images and tweak your brand’s message quickly and easily. WordPress is user friendly, intuitive, and powers over 30% of the internet. In short – if it’s good enough for Sony, The New York Times, The White House and countless other sites & ecommerce stores, it’s good enough for your site.

Reasons for using WordPress for your web project

  • Secure: WordPress has a large volunteer development team, backed by large companies. This ensures that many people have eyes on the codebase. This ensures bugs get fixed quickly, and are automatically added to your installation.
  • SEO Friendly: Out of the box WordPress is pretty SEO friendly. However with a freely available plugin, you have the control of every SEO aspect of your site.
  • Extensible: WordPress has over 56,000 free plugins available, and can be extended easily. In truth – the only limit is your imagination!
  • Open Source: Nobody owns WordPress, and it’s software is open source. As a result, it’s very easy to change/remove/add developers and you’re not tied to licences & contracts.

About Rhys Wynne – a WordPress development specialist in Manchester

My name is Rhys Wynne and I am a unique crossover of internet marketing expertise and WordPress development. This allows me the ability to build websites that you can use. I work best with teams of digital & content marketers, small business owners and agencies, building websites that they can use and their clients can use.

I have over 10 years experience working with WordPress. My journey began with WordPress version 2.0 (that was before you could set pages as the home page). Within the community, I’ve spoken at WordCamps and other conferences about WordPress as well as contributed to two releases: 3.9 and 4.4. I’ve also helped organise WordCamp Manchester, volunteered at WordCamp London, written bbPress Complete as well as provide support on the forums. In short: I eat, sleep and breathe WordPress.
