Why Use Website Developers?

So you might ask why use a website developer to do your WordPress website when you can do it yourself? You might think that having a website with little to no development cost is the best option for your project. You can pick a WordPress theme and learn to do everything yourself. You might be able to do that, but how many hours will it take to get it to look just the way you want it to look? While you’re working on the new website could you be making money or running your business more efficiently? What is the learning curve to becoming familiar with theme customization in WordPress?

These are some of the questions you might be asking yourself. I believe it is worth hiring an outside website developer to do your website for their knowledge and speed of development. If your new website is set up well in the development stage, you will be able to maintain the website with ease on your own with no problems. As website developers, we usually already pay for expensive plugins to get your website to function at a higher level. We also know which plugins won’t break your website. Many of us are also graphic design artists with the full Adobe Suite and we can do logos, pictures, and layouts that are pleasing to the eye for your potential visitors.

Another question I might ask is what is your time worth? If you run a business that makes let’s say, $55 an hour for your work with your clients. Website development and creating media and content could take more than 40 hours. The cost of possible lost work alone would be $2200 for 40 hours of work and you still may not be able to customize your theme to look how you envision it. Most good quality and functional websites will take between 60 to 120 hours in my development experience. Larger websites or eCommerce websites will take even more hours than that. I know it is tempting to try to save money where you can, but your website may only have one opportunity to impress your visitors with professionalism and functionality. Visitors may draw conclusions about your business operations based on many factors including your website on mobile devices as well as on desktops. Websites make statements about who you are as a company and organization.

Website Development is hard work! I have spent many hours learning the craft of good website design. I believe that we can help you achieve a beautiful website that is easy to navigate right from the home page. A website should be responsive, easy to navigate, have useful images and text, and not an encyclopedia of everything about you and your company. It should give the visitor to your website enough information to contact you, purchase a product, join your organization, or download the information that they need to engage with your business.

Better Website Design Efficiency!

What makes an efficient website? We believe here at SCRTNWP that there are three major components to having a website that works for you.

  1. Ease of User Interface!
  2. Ability to reach the audience you desire to attract.
  3. Room to grow and change.

Ease of the user experience for both the owner and person maintaining your site as well as the people who visit your site. We can provide both of these features using the tools that we use to develop your site. It is important to set these things up correctly in the beginning to ensure smooth operations long term.

I recently did an online teaching session for the owner of one of the websites I developed. He was very impressed with how easy and familiar it was to make changes to his company website. We also use an approach that allows both the users and visitors to your website to easily navigate and get to the information that they are trying to obtain and interact with.

The ability to reach the audience you wish to attract is a lot of hard work that we try to simplify with efficient and stable plugins that work behind the scenes to generate useful data. We use plugins to assist you in Google Analytics, SEO Optimization, and Page Speed enhancements to ensure that your users have the best possible experience when interacting with your site. We use the latest WordPress version with Elementor Pro as the Theme Builder to edit our websites.

The technology we use to develop your website is meant to allow for your site to grow and change as you build your potential users and customer base. Technology changes rapidly and we strive to only use dependable solutions that are stable and frequently updated to ensure that your website stays current and running!
