A WordPress developer can be expensive due to their expertise. The unstoppable growing popularity of the content management system (CMS) has created a huge demand for professional WordPress websites, WordPress templates and WordPress plugins. A qualified WordPress developer with good references will rarely need to worry about being out of work.
According to user statistics for the various available CMS, WordPress leads first place by a wide margin. According to statistics from W3Techs, WordPress has a whopping market share of nearly 60%, and if you can believe the numbers, a global share of nearly 26% of all websites run on the popular CMS.
Areas of application for a WordPress developer
A WordPress developer does not necessarily work on customised websites for contract clients. The area of professional website creation is now covered largely by qualified web designers, thanks to the ease of use of WordPress.
Whether or not you buy the corresponding extensions from marketplaces such as Themeforest, or have them developed by a WordPress developer will depend on the budget available and the desired features. Some site operators have commercial templates or plugins expanded or modified according to their needs by a WordPress developer. A web designer specialised in WordPress who does not have any programming skills will almost always be unsuitable for such work.
It is recommended to take on the services of a WordPress developer or agency for complex projects for this very reason. The agency will have an interdisciplinary team that combines design and programming expertise.
In addition to the pure design of a professional website with a high volume of expected visitors, other more technical aspects that require the appropriate expertise are also very important. This could be adjustments to the PHP version or the MySQL server, performance optimisations via caching plugins and/or a content delivery network (CDN), or the integration of external services and web applications such as Google Analytics or an ad server.
Establishing a fully automated backup solution, and closing the many known WordPress vulnerabilities through manual adjustments or security plugins also requires specialised knowledge that usually only an experienced WordPress developer will have.
