Ottawa WordPress Design for Small Businesses

Ottawa WordPress design has easily become half of our focus in recent years. After many years successfully developing custom websites and databases for clients, we spotted the tremendous value and user-friendliness of the WordPress platform, and knew it would be the perfect fit for many of our smaller business and artistic clients. To date, we have successfully applied the WordPress platform for small businesses and nonprofits in Ottawa, Almonte (our home base), Carleton Place and other communities west of the National Capital Region.

We are so convinced of the superiority of the WordPress platform, that we created a separate sub-site dedicated to explaining its strengths at

Need convincing? It's true that 1 in every 6 websites on the internet today is powered by WordPress, but it's best if you take the time to sit down with us to find out why this platform might be right for you (and whether or is really what you need). Our strength lies in being able to quickly understand your business or activity and what tools will best support you in your day to day work. We don't recommend technical solutions based on our own affinity with them; for each and every client we go through a process of identifying the best solution that will work for you.

WordPress site case study

Ottawa WordPress design for Oak Meadows Pet Resort in Carp

Carp-based Oak Meadows Pet Resort is a popular cat and dog boarding kennel with a very special touch. Owners John and Heather Griffiths offer a highly personal and tailored environment for the pets they care for and their owners; they really go that extra mile to really make each pet's stay as comfortable and low-stress as possible.

Desperate for a new website that they could manage comfortably themselves, Heather and John approached Foil Media to help them find the best solution. The answer, we knew after spending time learning about how the Griffiths ran their business, was the highly versatile and easy to use platform.

For a glimpse into how WordPress saved the day for the Griffiths, read our blog article on Websites for people who just want to run their business.

WordPress training and walking the talk

We're so well suited to providing training and support in using WordPress as Dagne uses the platform regularly for her own personal blog, Wuppenif. With well over a dozen clients at any one time using WordPress and updating her own blog frequently throughout the year, Dagne stays on top of the latest mods and features and how to make best use of them. She's also extremely well versed in how to make a blog work for you from a search perspective.
