Yardstick Services has extensive experience building and managing WordPress websites. WordPress is not used as just a blogging platform anymore; it has evolved into one of the most common CMS options for websites. We’ve researched all the major plugins and have a solution to almost all development requirements. Because WordPress has multiple themes and plugins, it’s easy to customize your WordPress site to make it look and function the way you like.
Consider your web design your handshake or fist bump; either way it’s the first impression to introduce your products and services and establish your business as professional and credible. Contact us today and let Yardstick Services help ensure that your business model is conveyed accurately — increasing traffic and sales.
We care about our new clients as passionately as our long-term clients who have been along for the ride since the company’s inception. Our web designers consistently endeavour to develop relationships built on trust and personalized attention and boldly commit to our client’s success.
Our clients traverse a wide-range of industries and our cross-functional team has grown organically to fill individual specialists’ roles to meet the challenges of design, development, and marketing in pursuit of project solutions.
Our web design specialists can create both a beautiful looking website and effectively resolve bugs and develop new features. At Yardstick Services, our diverse crew is innovative, agile professionals, who each possess a strong knowledge base and experience in their respective fields, which you can access at a fraction of the cost of hiring one individual in-house.
Located 40 minutes southeast of Vancouver and directly north of the U.S. border, Surrey occupies an area of 317 square-kilometres, making it two-and-a-half times bigger than Vancouver proper. Surrey is made up of six distinct neighbourhoods, whereby six town centres (Fleetwood, Whalley/City Centre, Guildford, Newton, Cloverdale, and South Surrey) sprawl across a landmass big enough to hold Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby combined.
Surrey is currently positioned as BC’s second largest city with a population of 517,887 (2016 Census) and is expected to surpass Vancouver in population to become the largest city in BC by 2030. It’s a growing and significantly multicultural diverse city that welcomes roughly 1,000 new residents monthly in communities where residents speak over 100 different languages.
Surrey has an abundance of parks including over 2428 hectares (6,000 acres) of green space and natural and coastal landscapes for countless recreational opportunities like hiking trails and year-round fishing in Green Timbers Urban Forest, kayaking along the Nicomekl River and paddle boarding at Crescent Beach. Surrey also plays host to numerous provincial and international sporting events like Canada Cup at Softball City, and local and provincial events (including arts & culture) at 10-hectare Holland Park.
Holland Park anchors Surrey Centre, a walkable, transit-oriented downtown area for business, cultural, and entertainment activity. It serves Surrey City Hall, Civic Plaza, SFU’s Surrey Campus, and the Surrey Central Library, and is expected to be the destination for three new light-rail lines from Guildford, Newton, and Langley, BC’s first Light Rail Transit system, phase 1, scheduled for completion in 2022. As a transit-oriented place, there’s a focus on high-density residential, commercial and institutional development in the City Centre.
According to the Real Estate Investment Network, pro-business government initiatives have helped earn Surrey the mantle of being the best place in BC to invest. King George Highway from SFU Surrey to Surrey Memorial Hospital is home to a high-tech health cluster known as Innovation Boulevard, where the city, universities and business are building clusters in health technology, clean tech and advanced manufacturing.
Sustained regional growth, combined with a relatively large supply of developable land indicates that Surrey will continue to shape economic development initiatives and provide substantial business opportunities.
Yardstick Services actively serves numerous Surrey businesses in varied industries, employing best practices in order to develop robust websites and execute cost-effective digital marketing campaigns for our clients. Our wide range of services includes web development, inbound marketing, and maintenance and support among others.
