6 Reasons You Should Be Working with A WordPress Developer for Your Site
People that tell you creating a website is easy probably have never actually made one. Making a good website is a learned and developed skill. There’s so much more than just pushing a few buttons, so trusting its creation to an experienced professional is always best for your website’s success. A David Taylor Design WordPress developer creates a site that generates revenue and takes advantage of everything the web has to offer. Here are six reasons you should be working with a WordPress developer for your website:
1. WordPress is a mainstay in the website world
Everyone uses WordPress. It’s by far the most popular and well-known website-creation tool in the world. Small and large businesses in every country depend on WordPress to market their services and products. It’s a staple in every industry, from restaurants to information technology companies. Bloggers, writers, magazines, membership sites, and online communities also take advantage of everything WordPress has to offer. There’s simply no better tool to create and maintain a website. An experienced developer will know how to utilize WordPress to work best for your website.
2. A WordPress web developer does all the work
WordPress development can be tricky. If you don’t know the ins and outs, you can really waste tons of time trying to figure out something that might take an experienced pro less than a minute. It’s common for a WordPress rookie to spend an entire day or more trying to solve a problem. Countless hours are spent in forums or on the phone. You might even spend money getting bad advice from an inexperienced web developer who doesn’t actually know how to use WordPress. Your time is precious, and you shouldn’t waste any of it. A David Taylor Design WordPress developer will do all of the work on your website, including:
- Installing WordPress
- Configuring themes
- Building themes from scratch
- Building plugins
Additionally, your WordPress developer can use WordPress to help make your site mobile- and tablet-friendly and drive mobile apps. Your WordPress developer works hard and will save you days or even weeks of time. Your site will be up and running and making you money, while you carry on with your normal work routine. WordPress development is something you never have to worry about.
3. They’ll pick or design the perfect WordPress theme
WordPress sites use themes. A theme is your site’s foundation. Changes can be made within the theme, but the general layout basically remains the same. Choosing a great theme is critical to your website’s success. The right theme reflects your goals, mission, and values—and attracts the right customer to your business. The wrong one can destroy your web presence.
The difficult thing about modern WordPress is there are thousands upon thousands of themes to choose from. Themes have been made for everyone and everything. There are free themes, affordable themes, and over-priced themes. With no experience, trying to find the right theme is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, especially if you don’t know how to use WordPress. Many people choose or purchase a theme that’s difficult to work with and have to go back to square one and choose another one. They also may choose a theme that has great samples but isn’t right for their company or even industry.
If you can’t find a theme that matches your vision, goals, or content—or you truly want a design that no one else has—a David Taylor WordPress designer can create a custom theme to achieve literally any design you want. With a custom WordPress theme, there are no limitations. You won’t have to force your content to fit a predesigned theme or start with pre-existing boxes. Your experienced designer will work with you one-on-one to create exactly what you envision—nothing more and nothing less. There will be no extra features to slow down your site, making your code much more efficient and ensuring that your site will load quickly, which is important for your visitors’ experience and for good search engine rankings.
An experienced David Taylor web developer sits down with you and asks important questions about your company and website such as:
- What are your company goals?
- What is your mission statement?
- What are your values?
- What would you like your website to accomplish?
- What type of content and copy do you want on your site?
- How much money would you like to make on your site?
- How much money can you invest in the design of your site?
The web developer carefully listens and gains a strong understanding of exactly what you’re trying to accomplish both online and offline. They choose a theme or custom-design one that’s easy to work with and perfect for you. Always remember that in the end, a flashy theme with tons of bells and whistles means nothing if it doesn’t produce results. You want your site to get the job done.
4. They’ll know which plugins to use
A plugin is a piece of pre-written code that you add to your website to make it better. Like WordPress themes, there are an infinite amount of plugins. Finding cool ones are easy. Finding ones that are right for your site can be challenging. Your web developer chooses plugins the same way he chooses your theme. He listens to your needs and chooses plugins that make your site better and your life easier. Selected plugins are always:
- Easy to update
- Easy to install
- Recently updated
The right type and amount of plugins are chosen to make sure plugins do not slow your site down. The end result is plugins that work with your theme to make your website organized, easy-to-use, and fast.
5. Changes can be made and problems can be solved quickly
Your new website will be amazing when it’s up and running. Of course, you want it to stay that way. A common rookie WordPress developer mistake is choosing a theme that requires impossible changes after a theme update is made. The website is essentially lost, and the website owner has to start all over again. Your David Taylor WordPress developer will carefully select your theme to make sure:
- Your theme can be easily updated without causing any problems
- Small theme details can be easily changed if you want
- Images and text can be easily changed
It’s important to realize that problems do come up with theme updates. The key is making sure they’re easy to solve. An experienced web developer chooses a theme that’s been around for a while and people know how to use. Problems can be solved quickly and easily because experienced people know exactly what to do. This saves you time, money, and headaches. Again, your web developer does everything while you carry on with your normal work day.
