What is WordPress Development?

WordPress is the most popular content management system powering over 43% of websites around the globe! And for a good reason! WordPress is also one of the most flexible content management systems with its user-friendly admin interface and thousands of plugins and themes: easily covering content-rich blogs, advanced e-commerce stores (with WooCommerce) and classic informational websites. But it doesn’t end there!

WordPress has been around for almost 20 years, and while being open source and free to use, it has come a long way from the blog publishing tool it started out as. With 20 years of bug fixes and new functional improvements, WordPress development is going to be a solid solution for almost all businesses and all website purposes for a while to come!

But WordPress development has a few components to it. WordPress itself is a content management system (CMS). You’ll need to have a theme installed (that can act as a blank canvas or provide a lot of functionality and design). For many of the additional functionalities (such as e-commerce), you will also need to install additional plugins, which may be free, freemium or paid.

Furthermore, if you want a drag-and-drop visual front end that you can update without a developer, you might use a page builder plugin (like Elementor). Suppose you can’t find a plugin that completely covers the functionality desired or would like to add some custom elements, you might consider adding custom code to alter a theme or a plugin somewhat.

Finally, you will need a domain and hosting to make the site live when done.

These five elements:

  1. The CMS itself
  2. Themes and plugins
  3. Page builder
  4. Custom code
  5. Hosting

Are present in CMS website development in general, using other content management systems such as Webflow, Shopify, Magento, Drupal, etc. However, each CMS excels in only some of these elements, thus making each more suitable for a specific purpose. So let’s first define what a CMS is, understand the advantages of using a CMS, and then dive into each of these elements to understand why WordPress development is such a popular choice!

What is a CMS?

Think of a content management system (CMS) as a bunch of premade code (open source and free like WordPress or not like Shopify, Webflow) that gives the website structure and helps organise its files quicker. Ultimately, any website or app is just a bunch of code and other files stored on a server, and a CMS simply makes it quicker to create those files and define their interdependencies!

To illustrate this with an example, imagine you know HTML, CSS and JavaScript so that you can do front end development. Now you want to create your website’s home page, which will require HTML, CSS and JavaScript (JS). If you didn’t have a CMS, you would need to create those three files according to the desired design: an HTML file (e.g. home.html), a CSS file (home.css) and a JS file (home.js). In the HTML file, you would specify when to load the CSS and the JS files. You would then open the terminal or some web host management tool (cPanel, Plesk) and upload these files to the root directory of your website (the publicly visible folder that your domain is connected to). And voila, you would have your home page accessible at

But this was for just one static page. Now imagine you want to have a blog. Again, assuming you want to have static content, you need to create folders for each category, create each post as an HTML file, and then link all of them on the blog page. But suppose you want some kind of search and filtering functionality. In that case, you would then also need to write some further JS or scripts (in PHP or another backend language) that would allow assigning tags to posts and filtering according to them. If you then want to remove a post from the blog, you need to find the link to the post you want to remove inside the blog HTML file and remove or replace it.

With a CMS like WordPress, you would just go the “posts” section of your admin panel, create the new blogposts using either the default WordPress editor or a page builder like Elementor, and then that would update wherever you have a blog feed. You could then go to the tags section of your admin panel, add new tags and assign them to blog posts, and enable filtering by those tags on the blog page. If you want to delete blog posts, you would go to the posts page and make that post-draft or delete it, and it would just disappear from everywhere.

So if we assume the simplest designs, it will probably take a day to set up that blog with the custom approach and maybe an hour with WordPress. Add this up over all the different features and also add the time you will spend updating and maintaining the site: using a CMS will save you tons of time and money when creating and maintaining the website. As long as your product is not software that needs to be integrated within your website (e.g. Facebook) for 99% of websites and use cases, it just doesn’t make any financial sense nowadays to build a website from scratch without a CMS.

That said, not all CMSs are created equal either. You get two broad types of CMSs: those built for developers and those built for non-techie users.

The CMSs mainly geared towards developers include Magento, Drupal and Joomla, to name a few. As building a website with these requires some coding work to be done, websites with these CMSs typically take longer to produce, cost more and are generally more challenging for the end client to maintain without the help of a developer.

From a business perspective, it’s most optimal to go for the solutions that are:

  1. Fast to develop
  2. Affordable to develop and maintain
  3. Easy to expand and add new features
  4. Easy to market and promote (and this is a big one)

So ideally, you want to have as little custom code as possible as it is more expensive and time-consuming to develop a feature from scratch than it is to use an existing plugin or extension. Furthermore, most of the trusted plugins have a big team that tests the plugin’s compatibility with the rest of the CMS. In contrast, if you develop a feature from scratch, you need to check it regularly to ensure it doesn’t cause conflicts with updates. So going back to the five elements of CMS website development, for a CMS to be the most optimal solution from a business perspective, it needs to have:

  1. The CMS itself – a CMS that is very multifunctional and advanced
  2. Themes and plugins – a big directory of themes from a variety of providers
  3. Page builder – a variety of advanced page builders
  4. Custom code – an option to add custom code to the plugins or extensions in a documented fashion
  5. Hosting – an ability to easily scale to have more visitors

And WordPress excels at all of these, making it one of the most (if not the most) flexible, cost and time-efficient website development option.

Other CMSs for non-techie users, such as WIX, Squarespace, Webflow and Shopify, also allow to intuitively create pages and quickly get a website up and running. And although WordPress is undoubtedly the all-around winner, some of these other CMSs, such as Webflow and Shopify, still have competitive advantages in some areas. For example, if you would like to have a very animation heavy front end, Webflow may be more suitable. Similarly, if you want a standard e-commerce website with minimal ongoing support, then Shopify may be the choice for you.

We offer WordPress, Webflow and Shopify development services, and we typically recommend the CMS to use based on the project requirements on a case by case basis. If you are wondering which of the three will be most suitable for your project, you can also read:

Or feel free to book a call, and we can walk you through all of the options depending on your project specification!

Now, let’s finally dive a bit deeper into some of the reasons you may want to use WordPress and why it is the best all-around CMS!

1. The CMS itself

Out of the box, WordPress comes with a very intuitive admin panel, where you can see and manage all of the different pages, users, posts, themes and plugins.

Having started as a blogging tool built into the core CMS, you get a very advanced page and post editor that allows you to add HTML and visual components. You also can categorise, tag and filter posts and pages, and you get to control the permalink structure and post-publication states (draft, published, deleted).

Furthermore, you can create a variety of users and assign various roles to them, such as an editor who can publish content but can’t edit plugins or a shop manager who can add products but not edit users. This means you can also easily delegate some parts of running the website to team members without giving them complete control of the website.

“WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPL. It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is modern software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product. We hope that by focusing on user experience and web standards we can create a tool different from anything else out there.” 

– WordPress history

Other key advantages of the WordPress CMS are that is it free and open-source, meaning that there is no charge to use it. In fact, you can download your WordPress website and run it on your computer. Or you can keep the files and relaunch the site in a year. No one can limit your access to your WordPress website because you haven’t paid a license fee!

In short, if you’re looking for a simple informational website or a blog, certainly look no further; just the core CMS alone might have you covered even without any extensions or plugins!

2. Themes and Plugins

As WordPress is open-source, the source code is available for everyone to see. Add to this the fact that WordPress backend is built with PHP, the most popular web scripting language, and that there is an enormous market for WordPress plugins and themes, and you’ll get this:

  • There are over 11,000 WordPress themes on ThemeForest alone!
  • There are over 50,000 WordPress plugins available on the WordPress plugin directory.

And although not all of these plugins and themes are exceptional, thousands of them are very well maintained and from credible developers, meaning that you should have plenty of choices for most standard applications!

There are also plugins with much more sophisticated functionality that will allow:

  • Converting the website into an e-commerce store with advanced e-commerce features such as product and order management (WooCommerce)
  • Creating courses and selling memberships to access these courses, including course quizzes and certificates
  • Creating a directory or marketplace sites with vendor profiles and products
  • An advanced forum on your WordPress website

But what about marketing a WordPress website? As it doesn’t matter how many epic features your website has if no one sees it!

Again, due to its popularity, most other marketing or related tools have a direct integration with WordPress. Google, Facebook, Hubspot and dozens of other popular software have developed their own plugins for WordPress that integrate your WordPress site with their services in just a few clicks!

3. Page builder

A page builder is also a plugin that upgrades the standard WordPress editor to allow more flexibility with widgets, section positioning and styling. Our absolute favourite page builder is Elementor, which we have been using since its launch. Our sites were featured by them as “website of the month” many times, and we are also an active member of their community and experts platform!

Long story short, Elementor allows us to create very custom websites with all kinds of animations and design effects whilst still keeping it simple for you as a client to log in and make content updates if you need to!

Furthermore, over the last few years, we have seen Elementor integrate with more popular plugins, such as WooCommerce, BuddyPress, Learndash, etc. This means that more and more custom WordPress websites with advanced functionality can be built and maintained more easily, making WordPress development an even more attractive option!

4. Custom code

Although WordPress has a massive directory of plugins and themes, you could ignore all of them and fully custom code your WordPress website.

As it is open-source, you can edit WordPress source files on your server, including all of its PHP and CSS files! One problem with editing the source files directly is that WordPress regularly has updates, and these updates will download the new source files from, removing any customisation made to the old files.

However, you can create a custom theme, plugin, or use a child theme to store all of your customisations, allowing you to retain them whilst keeping WordPress up to date.

So in a way, you can just use core features that come with WordPress and build on top of that. As mentioned before, typically using an exiting theme or plugin will be a much faster and cheaper option, but the fully custom alternative is also there if needed (which isn’t the case with all CMSs)!

Similarly, in terms of building pages and templates on the front end, you can create a fully custom HTML page and just embed it inside of a WordPress page. You can also use a mix of Elementor widgets and custom HTML or add custom styling and CSS to the Elementor widgets.

So in terms of flexibility, again, WordPress is hard to beat!

5. Hosting

There is sometimes confusion about the difference of and The free WordPress CMS described above comes from, and you have almost complete flexibility for where you choose host it. As long as you have PHP 7 and MySQL 5.6 compatibility on your server you can host a WordPress website on it.

Almost every host out there offers WordPress hosting, and although not all of the hosts offer the same services and performance, and price varies dramatically as well, still there are a lot of options. is one of them. provides “fully managed” hosting, limiting you access to the WordPress CMS files and the server, which isn’t as ideal if you’re hiring a WordPress development company (e.g. us) to build your website as it largely ties the developers hands. Choosing the best hosting for your needs is a large topic on it’s own, but you can read more about managed wordpress hosting and other alternatives here.

Either way, there is a massive ecosystem of WordPress hosting, caching and content delivery services, meaning that regardless of how big your website grows in terms of traffic and requests there will still be many options that you can consider. This competition means that on average the cost of your hosting will be less than with other “fully managed” CMSs such as Webflow or Shopify! Finally, you should have no problem scaling your site, so WordPress can work for both very small sites and for Enterprise projects.

Disadvantages of WordPress

All we have covered so far are things that are awesome about WordPress, but are there any disadvantages of using WordPress? There are, kind of…

One such disadvantage is continuous updates. WordPress has updates all the time, and so do all of the good plugins and themes (and if they don’t, you should probably not use them). All good software have updates, so do Shopify and Webflow, except the latter are managed services their development teams implement behind the scenes.

So as a WordPress website webmaster, you need to make backups of the site and execute these updates regularly. When your website and plugins get outdated, you can start seeing conflicts or even security issues!

Another disadvantage sometimes mentioned is that WordPress is less secure than for example, Shopify or Webflow. But this is not the case. If you choose the cheapest host available with a bad track record, never update the plugins, and don’t install any security plugins, then the odds are that you will have a security problem one day. If your host gets hacked, then so will your website. If you install a plugin from a developer with no reviews and no history of making good WordPress plugins, they could one day use the plugin to hack your website. All of these cases can be prevented, and with the hundreds of WordPress websites we have built, we had never had a problem when the proper precautionary steps were taken.

Additionally, some say that WordPress can feel overwhelming at first with all the different features, dashboards and capabilities. Most of our clients do content and blog updates themselves without our intervention. In our experience, once the site is set up and running, with the screen recordings and advice we provide, you should be comfortable making edits yourself after a couple of attempts!

The final disadvantage to using WordPress is the lack of dedicated customer support. You can call your hosting company or live chat a plugin provider, but there is no single WordPress website support contact that will solve all of your problems. While this can be challenging for those looking to learn and build their website, there are alternative support resources. Given its popularity, the support articles, forums, videos, and other resources available for users are endless.

Of course, you can also work with a WordPress development company like ourselves, who can be the single contact who will handle everything behind the scenes. Similarly, all of the other disadvantages mentioned will be nonexistent if we provide WordPress maintenance and support services for your website. As part of these services:

  • We will implement all of the updates and backups for you.
  • We will provide security and hosting advice and implement necessary measures for maximum security.
  • We will be able to assist with both minor and major edits (including design or functionality changes)
  • We can advise you on any aspect of running a WordPress website drawing on our experience from launching and maintaining hundreds of websites, from speed optimisation and hosting to PHP and CSS errors!

But if WordPress is so easy to use, are there any other advantages of hiring a WordPress designer or web design agency other than ongoing support and maintenance?

Should You Hire a Professional WordPress Designer for Your Site?

Understanding the Role of a WordPress Designer

When you think of a WordPress designer, what springs to mind? Is it a tech wizard who knows their way around the WordPress platform, or a creative genius who can bring your brand to life through a custom WordPress website? The truth is, a professional WordPress developer is all this and more. Understanding their role is the first step towards realizing the true potential they can bring to your business.

Creating websites is no easy task, and it requires a blend of technical and creative skills. From developing custom themes to implementing SEO strategies and managing WordPress plugins, a WordPress designer wears many hats. They are responsible for:

  • Developing custom themes
  • Implementing SEO strategies
  • Managing WordPress plugins
  • Ensuring the website is visually appealing
  • Ensuring the website is functional, secure, and user-friendly

A WordPress designer is the cornerstone of any successful WordPress site project, including WordPress websites, which is why it’s essential to hire WordPress developers with the right skills and experience in creating WordPress themes.

Custom Themes and Layouts

In web design, uniqueness is paramount. Custom themes and layouts are one of the ways a WordPress designer helps your website stand out from the crowd. By crafting a unique, unparalleled website through custom themes and layouts, a WordPress designer embodies your brand, creating a distinct online identity for your business.

It’s not just about aesthetics, a well-designed WordPress admin dashboard can also contribute to the overall user experience. Besides, a designer’s focus extends beyond the visual elements of the website. They tailor the design to align with your business’s identity and objectives, ensuring an effective WordPress website design that captivates your audience.

SEO Strategies

In the current competitive online market, merely having a website doesn’t suffice. Your website needs to be visible to search engines and your target audience. This is where Search Engine Optimization (SEO) comes in. A WordPress designer plays a crucial role in implementing SEO strategies that improve your website’s visibility and searchability.

Technical SEO involves optimizing the website infrastructure to improve search engine crawling and indexing processes. A WordPress designer can conduct audits on various aspects like:

  • Header tags
  • URL structures
  • Image alt attributes
  • Sitemaps
  • Robots files

to enhance search performance. As a result, this not only increases organic traffic to your site but also improves the user experience.

Advantages of Hiring a Professional WordPress Designer

With a clear understanding of a WordPress designer’s role, we can focus on the benefits of hiring one. A professional WordPress designer provides a distinctive website design that aligns with your brand’s message and objectives, setting your website apart from competitors. But the perks don’t stop there.

Better website performance, improved security, and time savings are other significant advantages of hiring a professional WordPress designer. These advantages are not just about making your website look good, but also about ensuring it functions optimally and securely, saving you time to focus on other pivotal facets of your business.

Unique and Creative Website Design

When hiring WordPress developers, you’re not only investing money but also opting for top-notch WordPress development services that include:

  • A unique and creative website design that can take your business to new heights
  • Engaging users through visually appealing imagery

Website performance is a critical factor that influences user experience. Slow-loading pages can deter visitors and impact your website’s ranking on search engines. Hiring a professional WordPress designer can mitigate these issues.

By implementing solid code practices and optimal configurations, a WordPress designer can improve your website’s speed and responsiveness. This not only enhances user experience but also boosts your website’s SEO, leading to better visibility on search engine results and ultimately, increased traffic to your site.

In the digital world, security is paramount. With the increasing number of cyber-attacks, it’s crucial that your website is protected against potential threats. This is where a professional WordPress designer comes in.

A professional WordPress designer stays abreast of the latest security practices, chooses secure plugins, and configures settings to protect against common vulnerabilities. This not only keeps your website safe but also instills trust in your visitors, knowing that their data is secure.

Time Savings

Time is a valuable commodity, especially for businesses. Engaging a professional WordPress designer enables you to save time by leveraging their design and implementation proficiency. This allows you to concentrate on other crucial aspects of your business.

Hiring a professional WordPress designer offers several benefits, including:

  • Access to their expertise and experience
  • Anticipation and avoidance of potential pitfalls
  • Ensuring the project stays on track and is completed within the agreed timeline
  • Saving a significant amount of time and stress in the long run

How to Choose the Right WordPress Designer for Your Project

Selecting the appropriate WordPress designer for your project might seem challenging, but it’s a significant step. The right designer can turn your vision into reality, while the wrong one can lead to wasted time and resources. But how do you make the right choice?

Various factors should be considered when selecting a WordPress designer, including reviewing their portfolio, verifying client testimonials, and assessing their communication skills. These factors can give you a good indication of the designer’s capabilities and whether they’re the right fit for your project.

Assess Their Portfolio

A portfolio offers a glimpse into a designer’s style and abilities. By assessing a designer’s portfolio, you can get a feel for their design style and see if it aligns with your brand’s aesthetic. You can also see examples of their previous work, which can give you an idea of what to expect for your own project.

When evaluating a designer’s portfolio, pay attention to the details. Look at the quality of their work, their creative flair, and their technical skills. Also, consider how they’ve solved design problems in the past. This can give you insights into their problem-solving abilities and how they might handle challenges that arise during your project.

Check Client Testimonials

Client testimonials are another important consideration when choosing a WordPress designer. These can provide valuable insights into the designer’s reliability and work ethic. They offer social proof of the designer’s skills and the satisfaction level of their previous clients.

When reviewing client testimonials, look for signs of reliability and good work ethic. Positive feedback from satisfied clients can enhance the designer’s reputation and attract new customers. Additionally, positive testimonials and reviews can also reflect the quality of the designer’s work.

Also, consider how they’ve solved design problems in the past. This can give you insights into their problem-solving abilities and how they might handle challenges that arise during your project.

Evaluate Communication Skills

Effective communication is fundamental to a project’s success. A designer with good communication skills can ensure your project runs smoothly, minimizing misunderstandings and ensuring everyone is on the same page.

When assessing a WordPress designer’s communication skills, consider their experience, their ability to simplify complex tasks, and their approach to handling feedback and criticism. Good communication skills can make the design process smoother and more enjoyable, ultimately leading to a better end product.

Cost Considerations When Hiring a WordPress Designer

Engaging a professional WordPress designer is a worthwhile investment. As with any investment, it’s important to consider the cost. The cost of hiring a designer can fluctuate greatly, based on various factors such as the designer’s experience, project complexity, and the designer’s location.

There are two main payment structures when hiring a WordPress designer: hourly rates and fixed-price projects. The best choice depends on your budget, the complexity of your project, and your personal preference.

Hourly Rates vs. Fixed-Price Projects

Both hourly rates and fixed-price projects come with their own set of pros and cons. Hourly rates can be more flexible, particularly if the scope of your project is uncertain. However, they can also lead to budget fluctuations and may end up being more expensive if the project takes longer than expected.

Fixed-price projects:

  • Allow you to know the total cost upfront, making budgeting easier
  • Offer less flexibility
  • If the project takes less time than anticipated, you may end up overpaying

There are two main payment structures when hiring a WordPress designer: hourly rates and fixed-price projects. The best choice depends on your budget, the complexity of your project, and your personal preference.

Scope of Work

The scope of work can also greatly influence the cost of engaging a WordPress designer. This includes everything from design and development to ongoing maintenance. The more complex your project, the more work will be involved, and the higher the cost.

Before you start looking for a designer, it’s important to have a clear understanding of the scope of your project. This will help you communicate your needs more effectively to potential designers and give you a better idea of what to expect in terms of cost.

Unlimited Requests Design Subscription

There’s also a third alternative when it comes to payment structures for hiring a WordPress designer – an unlimited requests subscription. This model, offered by us, is ideal for larger projects. With this approach, you can submit unlimited requests for design, video and website development tasks within a set monthly subscription fee. This can result in substantial savings compared to both the fixed-price and hourly rate approaches, especially if you need ongoing design work for your website.

Working Effectively with Your WordPress Designer

After hiring a WordPress designer, it’s crucial to collaborate effectively with them to guarantee the success of your project. This involves establishing clear goals and expectations, maintaining open communication, and providing timely feedback.

Remember, a successful project requires collaboration and mutual understanding. By working effectively with your project manager and designer, you can ensure that your vision is brought to life and that your project meets your business needs.

Establish Clear Goals and Expectations

Setting clear objectives and expectations at the project’s outset can help avoid confusion and ensure everyone stays focused. Be clear about what you want to achieve with your website and how you envision the end result.

Don’t be afraid to provide direction and express your ideas. At the same time, be open to the designer’s suggestions and expertise. After all, they’re the experts in WordPress development, and their insights can be invaluable.

Maintain Open Communication

Effective communication is vital for the success of any project. Regular check-ins and updates can keep everyone informed and ensure the project stays on track. Open communication also allows for quicker resolution of any issues that may arise.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions or request clarification if something isn’t clear. And make sure to provide feedback throughout the project. Your designer will appreciate your input and it can help improve the final product.

We draw from our extensive experience in building WordPress websites to walk you through the entire project, providing deliverables every 1-3 working days. Typically, we can have a 5-page WordPress website up and running, complete with two rounds of revisions, within approximately two weeks. All we need from you is a concise list of specifications to get started!

Another significant advantage is the professional, high-end aesthetic we deliver. Our designs are crafted by award-winning senior designers and reviewed by an art director with over 15 years of experience in web and UI/UX design. But our service extends beyond just aesthetics. We ensure your website is not only visually appealing with sharp graphics and engaging effects but also responsive and optimized for conversions. We offer a range of further optimization services, including speed optimization for Google Page Speed Insights, ongoing conversion optimization based on analytics data, SEO optimization, and marketing automation setup.

Our WordPress websites, as standard, include an Elementor Pro license, advanced security plugin, Yoast SEO plugin, advanced caching plugin, live chat integration, and six months free on our shared hosting services (including domain and email setup). This means that once your website is approved, you’re all set for launch!

Last but not least, we offer a unique payment structure: the unlimited requests design subscription model. This model is ideal for larger projects or for businesses that require ongoing design work. With a set monthly fee, you can submit unlimited design, video, and website development tasks (including entire WordPress website builds), making it a cost-effective solution for your WordPress design needs.

This approach not only offers substantial savings compared to both fixed-price and hourly rate models, but it also provides flexibility and convenience. You can submit as many design requests as you need without worrying about going over budget. Plus, in addition to getting access to a team of professional WordPress designers who can bring your vision to life, you will also be able to work with expert graphic and web designers, branding experts, and motion graphics artists without an additional cost within the subscription. These professionals can help further elevate the quality of your website and help your business stand out more from the competition.

Not sure if this is for you? Book a call with one of our account managers, and they will be able to advise you on the best CMS choice for your website and the variety of options available for your project!
