Looking for a WordPress Developer?

If you’re looking for a website that not only delivers professional-level quality but also has an accessible back-end that your team can quickly get used to, then WordPress might be just the site building tool for you. It’s perfect for blogs, news sites, or any other kinds of websites that have to consistently publish new content.

While WordPress is accessible enough that even amateurs can use it to build a blog or website, that doesn’t mean that all WordPress sites are created equally. Creating your own WordPress site without the right experience in website design or the ability to custom create your own visual elements and user interface can result in a site that looks exactly the same as every other WordPress site.

At SGD, we combine the user-friendliness of WordPress platform with cutting-edge web design that ensures your site is not only adaptable to the needs of your team but that it stands out from the crowd, as well.

Why is WordPress so popular?

There’s no denying that WordPress is one of the most popular ways to design and launch your website. It’s been the most popular CMS for seven years in a row and is used to create over 500 websites a day. At this stage, a quarter of all the websites on the net are built using WordPress. It’s not just for blogs, either. Sites as big as TIME, CNN, Spotify and more are powered with WordPress.

WordPress is not just a website building tool but is a Content Management System (also known as a CMS). This means that it is built to help teams create, publish, and manage lots of content. It doesn’t take a lot of training to get used to the well-designed back-end of WordPress. From there, your team can learn more about publishing content, formatting it, editing it, and making use of features like meta-descriptions, scheduled publishing, and much more without too much effort. It’s a lot easier to use WordPress for regularly updating your site than it is to build a site from scratch.

The versatility of WordPress is the second reason that it’s so popular. You can apply different themes and visual elements with little-to-no difficulty. What’s more, you have total design over the code and can implement a whole host of different features with ease beyond content alone. This can include social media feeds, weather report sites, and much more besides.

WordPress is also secure and reliable. For instance, it provides offsite backups of all your pages so that if your site goes down, you can ensure that you haven’t lost any of the content your team has worked so hard on.

Why it’s important to work with a professional WordPress developer

If you do your own research on WordPress, you will soon see that plenty of people use the tool to create their very own websites without any need for a professional developer. It is true that you can create a WordPress site if you’re willing to take the time to learn how the CMS works. It’s nowhere near as difficult as creating a site from scratch.

However, homemade WordPress sites are often very easy to point out. Without the right talent for web design, development, and graphic design, they all start to look the same. They use the same layouts, the same plugins and features, and the same themes. Free themes are replicated across sites time and time again. Even store-bought themes are likely to be used in more than one site.

Professional WordPress design ensures that your website stands out. We create the themes and all the visual elements of the site ourselves using Adobe Photoshop. What’s more, we can implement custom-made plugins and coding so that we can create a site that goes well beyond the boundaries of what the average WordPress site delivers, including bespoke interactivity and animation.
