Building a WordPress website can be hard, especially if you don’t have a lot of web development experience. Sure, you might be able to choose an attractive theme and change things like colours and fonts, but will you be able to really customize your site like you want to?
Ultimately, no you won’t. However, a professional WordPress developer or designer will be able to, helping you build a website that stands out from your competitor’s.
Below I’ve run through a few of the reasons why I always use an experienced designer when I’m building new websites. They include:
A Professional Designer Will Be Able To Build The Site You Want
Personally, I get frustrated easily. And there’s nothing quite as frustrating as trying to build a new WordPress website and not being able to get it quite right.
Sure, you might know what you want and be able to visualize it in your head, but actually turning your visualizations into a working product isn’t easy.
Fortunately, an experienced web designer will be able to work alongside you to create a beautiful website that meets your needs. When I’ve worked with designers in the past I’ve sat down with them, discussed the exact information and design I want, and left them to it.
A Professionally Designed Website Will Be SEO Friendly
Search engine optimisation, or SEO, is a crucial consideration when you’re building a new WordPress website. However, it isn’t always easy – especially if you’re site isn’t built well.
Unfortunately, a poorly built website with a lot of added plugins or heavy features can work slowly, offer a poor user experience, and generally, will rank poorly on the search engine results pages.
On the other hand, a WordPress site built by a professional will usually perform well, with code files and back-end settings that are fully SEO optimized.
