Advantages Of A WordPress Developer

By Purplebox Digital

In an ever-increasing technical world, websites are getting more and more sophisticated by the year.

With the introduction of responsive web design, advanced click tracking and custom plugins, websites are becoming increasingly hard to maintain and create without a web developer on hand.

If your business already has a website, then the chances are it most likely uses a content management system in order for you to update it.

There are plenty of content management system out there from Joomla to Drupal, but the most popular one by far is WordPress. With over 27% of the world’s websites using WordPress as their CMS, there’s a high chance your website will use it too.

Content management systems are useful in helping owners make small tweaks and changes to their websites. However, when it comes to making big changes and implementing new features, it can get pretty technical really fast.

Luckily there are plenty of WordPress developers out there that can give you a helping hand and make all your website problems disappear. If you’re still unsure whether you should hire a WordPress developer or not for your website, then you should consider the numerous advantages of hiring one.

Here are some of the many benefits of hiring a WordPress developer.

Fix Technical Issues Easily

technical difficulties

If you’re terrible with computers and anything technical, then getting a WordPress developer would be a smart choice. Not only do WordPress developers know the software inside out, but they can also fix any problems or issues quickly, saving you plenty of time and frustration.

WordPress developers have years of experience working with WordPress and many will have worked with several versions of the software. If you need something fixing or changing on your website, then they’re by far the best people to go to.

More Customisation

WordPress themes are an excellent way to add some customisability to your website, but when you think of how many people own the same theme, is your website really that unique?

WordPress developers can do amazing things to websites. Simply give them an idea and style to work with and they can easily create you a unique WordPress theme that makes you stand out from competition. By having your own WordPress developer on hand, you can easily customise your website and change anything you want.

Whether you’re thinking of giving your website a Valentine’s day or summer sale theme, a WordPress developer will be able to bring your idea to reality.

Save Time

Time is money

When your website needs fixing, or updating, time can be of the essence. If you primarily rely on your website for payments and income then having a broken website can be an absolute nightmare. A WordPress developer will be able to fix any problems quickly and save you the time and hassle of doing it all yourself. When you’re losing customers every day due to website errors, you want to make sure they get fixed as soon as possible.

You might think doing it yourself would be a cheaper option, but when you don’t have the necessary experience or knowledge, it’s most likely to end in disaster.

With all the free time you get from hiring a WordPress developer you’ll be able to focus on the more important things such as growing your business and getting new clients. When time = money do you really have the time to waste?

Hiring is Easy

With so many advantages of hiring a WordPress developer, there really aren’t any reasons not to. Not only do they save you time and money but they also help make your website faster and more unique which makes you stand out from your competition.

If you need a small website building or just a few fixes being made, then you will most likely be better off with hiring a freelancer. Freelance developers are often paid by the hour and are perfect for getting important things fixed as soon as possible.

Simply tell them what you need doing, and they’ll give you a rough estimate on how long it will take. There are many freelance websites on the internet where developers post their previous work and portfolios for everyone to see. With a range of background experience and hourly prices, there are developers for everyone.

If you’re looking for a complete re-design or update of your website then you would be better going with a web design agency. Not only do web design agencies have bigger teams to handle the work but they also produce higher quality results. After all, they have bigger teams with employees that specialise in their own individual area.

There are many web design agencies from all over the world that start with entry level prices and go up to the tens of thousands. Before you pick a web design agency make sure they can do what you want for a reasonable price without being too overkill.
