David Kuyk

WordPress Developer

Hello! I am an enthusiastic web developer who would love to help build or improve your WordPress site. I have experience working with a variety of sites, large and small, using almost every major WordPress page builder, including: Elementor Pro, Divi, WPBakery, Beaver Builder, Thrive, Avada, and Gutenberg. I have experience working with hundreds of different WordPress themes and plugins.

If you’re starting from scratch, I can help you choose and setup the best WordPress hosting provider, domain name registrar, CDN, and email hosting provider for your project. If you already have a WordPress site and need it updated or modified to conform with the latest speed, security, and SEO best practices, I can do that. If your site is suddenly not working and you need to fix it, I can dig into the WordPress core and troubleshoot.

I pride myself in my attention to detail and my ability to keep an eye on the big picture and make suggestions for optimizing your website that you hadn’t thought of before. When I’m not obsessing over a WordPress project, I am painting, reading, or enjoying a good hike. I look forward to helping you provide your users with an exceptional online experience.

Clearwater Exteriors

This company had an old Joomla site that they needed updated and converted to WordPress, so I did just that. Rather than using a bulky page builder, I used the built-in WordPress block editor for maximum site speed. I also collaborated with OM Incorporated Marketing to create the unique selling propositions and other SEO-optimized content on the homepage. Finally, I had to iron out how to make their CRM-based contact forms and chat widget work with WordPress.

Questmont

This large wealth management company had an old, glitchy website built in Hubspot. I helped transfer their site content to WordPress, get them set up with a better host, and implement a more modern design while also maintaining their connection with Hubspot forms, tracking, analytics, etc.

Simply Resilient Life Coaching

I built this site for a “military wife life coach” based on her notes and feedback. I helped her move her blogs from an old Blogger blog to the new site, build a directory of her podcast episodes, etc. I am especially happy with how fast the site ended up, earning a 98 on mobile and 99 on desktop according to Google PageSpeed Insights.

I will definitely hire him for my next project.” – Jessie Ellertson

Apton Biosystems

I converted XD designs into a functioning website for this biosystems company, including video backgrounds on the homepage, entrance animations, and other custom CSS work. I also did quite a bit of back-end work troubleshooting DNS records to point their domain from their old site to the new site.

Medicare with Melanie

I built this insurance agent’s site from Adobe XD designs using Elementor Pro and helped her configure everything from her domain name to multiple email inboxes for marketing purposes. I also had to take special steps to secure her site with WordFence because her domain name attracted bot attacks.

Kid Cards Club

I was brought on to create a WordPress site for this card collecting membership startup. I started with some pictures and a general idea of the pages we’d need, and I built it from there. I used MemberPress to create three plan tiers.

“David was amazing to work with! I am so pleased how my site turned out. He built it not only for desktop but also to be responsive for mobile version.

Cineverm Podcast

I built this film podcast website from scratch with no provided design. I used Advanced Custom Fields to add custom fields such as movie ratings, combined ratings, and episode embeds. I also created archives with custom sorting and custom shortcodes.

This client had an old Wix site that just didn’t have the flexibility that she wanted, so I converted the site to WordPress, added features such as a booking calendar and a WooCommerce shop, and made further optimizations to the site.
