Collaborating with a WordPress Developer: What You Need to Know

This blog marks the beginning of our new blog series that will cannonball you into the logistics of working with a WordPress Developer! Over the next few months, I am going to be sharing with you the how, what, when, where and why to collaborating with WordPress developers.

I know many of you have a basic understanding of WordPress and all that it entails when creating a webpage; but the majority of you are probably new to the logistics of collaborating. I want to go through each step, outlining what this process looks like and give you all the information you need to know for when you’re ready to get started.

First – what is a WordPress Developer? This will be a person that you bring onto your team to help you with any back-end or front-end development regarding your webpage design. Those themes and plugins that you just don’t want to deal with? That’s where your WordPress developer will step in to save the day!

What can you outsource?

Think about your biggest pain points when it comes to designing a webpage. This could be anything from inputting content and images to just basic website modifications. Anything within the technical realm that you do not have time for or don’t want to handle, WordPress developers can take it off your plate. A few more things you can outsource could be:

  • Building a custom theme
  • Adding or subtracting functionality to an existing site
  • Domain creation
  • Migrations
  • Hosting
  • Maintenance
  • Updates

Most developers have a pretty wide scope on what they are able to do; but in some cases, there also may be a few developers with a special niche. If this ends up being the case for your WordPress developer, you shouldn’t worry because typically they can refer you to someone who can fit into what your business needs.
