How to choose a WordPress developer
It can be hard to pick the right WordPress developer. Whether you’re looking for someone in Vancouver or working with someone remote, here’s a few questions to ask right off the bat:
- How long has has the developer been coding in WordPress? Little experience can mean a cheap website, but it can also mean a buggy, slow website, which has a lot of ramifications for SEO and your site’s Google ranking.
- Do they get to understand your business goals? Hearing what the client’s looking to have in a website is only one piece of the puzzle. As web experts, any great WordPress developer will get to know your business’s goals (as well as problems), before creating you a website. The difference in result can be just a pretty website versus a pretty website that actually boosts your business.
- Do they offer maintenance? Or do they simply hand you the website and disappear? WordPress sites can be succeptible to malware, or code & plugin issues if not kept current and up to date by a professional WordPress developer.
