I want to share what I learned with you so my thousands of wasted dollars can be recouped in savings for anybody similar to me, who thinks you can just buy a Wordpress website and be happy.

All the website developers I’ve worked with so far have understood the technical side fine. But they have no clue what good design is or how to get…
