Migrating your data across to WordPress

If you’re operating an existing website, you’ve no doubt worked hard to create content that meets your user’s needs. The last thing you want is to lose or bury this content in the process of moving to your new website.
Every website and CMS is structured differently, and so it’s important for us to plan how your content will map between your old and new websites, in order to make the migration as seamless as possible.
The development and infrastructure teams at Illustrate Digital will help you to organise and migrate your content, including: posts and post types, products, categories, case studies, media libraries and more.
