Should I Hire a WordPress Designer?

July 20, 2011 2 min read

Here’s a scenario: you’ve decided to run a company blog, you’ve paid for self-hosting, and you’ve downloaded and installed WordPress. Now you’re completely stuck. You’ve looked around at different WordPress design themes, but none seem to be exactly what you need and you have limited WordPress design experience. You know you need to either teach yourself which could involve hours upon hours of trial and error, and sifting through WordPress design tutorials, or you need to hire a WordPress designer which could save you a lot of time, but cost you some money. What do you do? Before you bulk at paying a WordPress designer, here are some things to consider:

Professional Quality

A company blog represents your company just as your company website does, so you need to consider quality. Ask yourself – will your self-created WordPress design be equal in quality to what you can get with a WordPress designer? If the answer is no then you should strongly consider hiring a WordPress designer. With a professional designer you will be able to translate your ideas into WordPress design and give your blog a professional look.

Time is Money

While it’s true time is money – and yes by hiring a designer, you will be paying them for their time, you will also be saving yourself a lot of time that can be used in your other business ventures. Plus, a WordPress designer will be able to create your WordPress design in much less time than you would be able to. Not to mention your WordPress design will be up and running much faster, which in this fast paced Internet era is imperative to the success of your business. And if you need changes and updates done fast – a designer can deliver.
