WordPress Website Development

Instead of giving you a rehash of the same websites and projects that you’ve seen over and over again, at RedLotus Austin we give you the personal time and attention necessary to fully understand your vision.

Check out our portfolio to see what’s possible!

Let us help you turn that vision into reality!

We’re here to help you build your next WordPress site: blogs, eCommerce, CMS, CRM, Customer Outreach, Project Management, Business Process Control, Inventory Management, and more!

For RedLotus Austin, web-development is our bread and butter. We take your ideas and bring them to life.

Steps to Create Your Site

1. Discuss Your Needs

In order to give a client the best product possible, and before we do anything else, we first discuss your project, budget and, goals. Only then can we help plan and design a site that perfectly fits your needs.

2. Plan Your Project

After we have all of the requirements and info about your project together, we can get started on the really fun stuff: the planning! Ok, maybe it doesn’t sound that fun but, it’s extremely important to make sure that everyone is on the same page and that no details get left out.

3. Work Together to Build It

Okay, the planning is done, now on to the heavy lifting: building and testing your new site or project. This is where everything comes together and all of the bugs get shaken out. This is typically the longest stage since we make sure to thoroughly test every part of your site.

4. Time for Launch!

This is the moment we have been waiting for! Now, all of the time talking, planning, and testing things pays off and we get to see your site go live. It might be a small launch or you may have a huge party planned to show things off; either way, this is when you see your idea fully realized!
