Many people don’t know good web design or how to build their own website using the right software. Are you familiar with WordPress themes and plugins and which ones to choose? Let’s discuss why you should hire an experienced web developer.
Does My Project Need an Experienced Web Developer?
There is more to creating and using a website than trying to use WordPress themes and designing on the fly. In fact, there’s more than some web designers care to be involved in, such as business hosting platforms and knowing all is set up correctly and completely for your new site, and testing the completed project before it goes live.
Most people don’t understand web development or how to design a website using web design software, or how the site will display on various devices (responsive design). Just having an eye for design doesn’t compensate for a lack of experience with development structure and code. To properly build a website it is important to get the big picture of what you want to sell, what you want the visitor to do, and how to do it.
Most businesses know what they want to say and they understand their business but fail to convey what they want to sell and how to entice visitors to buy what they want to sell them. One key is to put the items or services they want to sell right up front, making it easy for the visitor to find what they are seeking and want to buy.
Experienced Web Developers Build Better Websites
The next key is to make the user experience enjoyable with a site that is easy to navigate to find more of what the visitor is looking for. Website structure segments the flow of information into small chunks of data which has proven to be the easiest way to retain information. So, before diving in to create a website, think of the visitor as if he or she is shopping for a new vehicle, for example.
Be the guide or salesman that says, “What would you like to buy? Were you interested in new or used? How will this new vehicle be used? Do you prefer light or dark colors? Cloth or leather seats?”
In this way, the visitor finds out where the new or used car or truck is at on the website, and then the best choice depending on the specific examples in the web page copy that allows the buyer to envision him or her actually behind the wheel of their new vehicle. An experienced web developer has an arsenal of resources to effectively create the best UX (User Experience).
Why Aren’t More Businesses Hiring Web Developers?
There are several reasons why businesses aren’t hiring web developers: Businesses don’t know or understand what experienced web developers are, their value, where to find them, and what to ask or expect.
Then there is the factor of time. How much time do you need to familiarize yourself with WordPress themes and plugins? What does it cost you if you do something incorrectly and possibly break the website? How much extra time will that take to fix?
Clients discover that the real value is that the sites work efficiently and correctly. They know that they get an excellent performing site. By having the changing technology managed by experts, clients get thoroughly tested and proven updates and solutions as needed.
Final Thoughts: What Is the Value of an Experienced Web Developer?
How do you put a value on all of this expertise? What is the value of an experienced web developer? Think of getting your site completed sooner rather than later and paying for a site that is functioning the way you wanted. Think of the time and headaches saved and knowing that it will be working optimally not only for the visitor but also for the client that wants to update the site’s content simply and easily.
