If you’ve ever heard that creating a website is effortless, chances are, the person saying it hasn’t delved deep into the intricacies of web development. While there are platforms that make it easier to set up a basic site, achieving a polished, high-performing website is another story. That’s where a WordPress developer from David Taylor Digital comes into play. Our experts don’t just build websites; they craft digital experiences designed to generate revenue and leverage the full spectrum of what the web has to offer.
Here are six reasons you should be working with a WordPress developer for your website:
Everyone uses WordPress. It’s by far the most popular and well-known website-creation tool in the world. Small and large businesses in every country depend on WordPress to market their services and products. It’s a staple in every industry, from restaurants to information technology companies.
Bloggers, writers, magazines, membership sites, and online communities also take advantage of everything WordPress has to offer. There’s simply no better tool to create and maintain a website. An experienced developer will know how to utilize WordPress to work best for your website.
WordPress development can be tricky. If you don’t know the ins and outs, you can really waste tons of time trying to figure out something that might take an experienced pro less than a minute. It’s common for a WordPress rookie to spend an entire day or more trying to solve a problem.
Countless hours are spent in forums or on the phone. You might even spend money getting bad advice from an inexperienced web developer who doesn’t actually know how to use WordPress. Your time is precious, and you shouldn’t waste any of it.
Additionally, your WordPress developer can use WordPress to help make your site mobile- and tablet-friendly and drive mobile apps. Your WordPress developer works hard and will save you days or even weeks of time. Your site will be up and running and making you money, while you carry on with your normal work routine. WordPress development is something you never have to worry about.
WordPress sites use themes. A theme is your site’s foundation. Changes can be made within the theme, but the general layout basically remains the same. Choosing a great theme is critical to your website’s success. The right theme reflects your goals, mission, and values—and attracts the right customer to your business. The wrong one can destroy your web presence.
The difficult thing about modern WordPress is there are thousands upon thousands of themes to choose from. Themes have been made for everyone and everything. There are free themes, affordable themes, and over-priced themes. With no experience, trying to find the right theme is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, especially if you don’t know how to use WordPress.
Many people select or purchase a theme that’s difficult to work with and have to go back to square one and choose another one. They also may pick a theme that has great samples but isn’t right for their company or even industry.
If you can’t find a theme that matches your vision, goals, or content, or you truly want a design that no one else has. A David Taylor WordPress designer can create a custom theme to achieve literally any design you want.
With a custom WordPress theme, there are no limitations. You won’t have to force your content to fit a predesigned theme or start with pre-existing boxes.
Your experienced designer will work with you one-on-one to create exactly what you envision—nothing more and nothing less. There will be no extra features to slow down your site, making your code much more efficient and ensuring that your site will load quickly, which is important for your visitors’ experience and for good search engine rankings.
The web developer carefully listens and gains a strong understanding of exactly what you’re trying to accomplish, both online and offline. They choose a theme or custom-design one that’s easy to work with and perfect for you.
Always remember that in the end, a flashy theme with tons of bells and whistles means nothing if it doesn’t produce results. You want your site to get the job done.
A plugin is a piece of pre-written code that you add to your website to improve it. Like WordPress themes, there are an infinite number of plugins. Finding cool ones are easy. Finding ones that are right for your site can be challenging.
Your web developer selects plugins the same way he chooses your theme. He listens to your needs and picks plugins that improve your site and your life easier.
The right type and number of plugins are chosen to make sure plugins do not slow your site down. The result is plugins that work with your theme to make your website organized, easy-to-use, and fast.
Your new website will be amazing when it’s up and running. Of course, you want it to stay that way. A common rookie WordPress developer mistake is selecting a theme that requires impossible changes after a theme update is made. The website is essentially lost, and the website owner has to start all over again.
It’s important to realize that problems do come up with theme updates. The key is making sure they’re easy to solve. An experienced web developer chooses a theme that’s been around for a while and people know how to use. Problems can be solved quickly and easily because experienced people know exactly what to do. This saves you time, money, and headaches.
Again, your web developer does everything while you carry on with your normal workday.
When it’s all said and done, your number-one priority is having a website that accomplishes everything you want it to. And that’s precisely what your David Taylor WordPress developer will provide for you. All of our web developers have the training, experience, and skills needed to create websites of all sizes in all fields.

An additional search-engine optimization (SEO) service is also available. This makes sure your site is always on the first page of search results and gets the most number of visitors possible. Your revenue dramatically increases when you take advantage of SEO. It also makes your site better for you and your clients because constant updates are made, and it’s always user-friendly across mobile and tablet devices.
In today’s digital age, having a robust, user-friendly website isn’t just a luxury—it’s a necessity. As we’ve outlined in this blog post, a WordPress developer can be your secret weapon for achieving a website that looks great and performs exceptionally well. From custom functionality and enhanced security to SEO and ongoing support, the benefits are clear.
So, why settle for a DIY approach when you can have a professional WordPress developer take your website to the next level?
