The popularity of outsourcing has exploded in recent years. With more and more developers, designers and writers bucking the trend and setting up freelance businesses, there’s more choice than ever before. With all of these skills available for hire outsourcing is being used by more and more businesses as a cost-effective solution for projects that cannot be completed in-house.
So what sort of WordPress tasks should you be looking to outsource? There are certain tasks that are much better handled by a professional, so we’re going to look at a few of the projects you should consider outsourcing.
First and foremost, let’s look at security. It’s imperative that your website has a robust security system in place, keeping it protected from malicious activity online. Viruses, hacking efforts and malware are getting more and more sophisticated, so it makes sense to put your site’s security in the hands of an experienced professional who knows how to keep your content safe.
If you’re looking for a new site to be set up from scratch, consider contacting an agency who can handle this for you. They can customise your chosen theme, ensure your design is responsive, upload your content and check the SEO – the list is endless. Creating a new website takes a lot of time and effort and it’s often much more cost-effective to outsource the entire operation and save on the stress.
Fancy tackling a complete redesign yourself? Er, no thanks. Uploading new branding and changing a few fonts might sound like a five minute job but there’s a lot more to it than that. That header looked perfect before, so why is it all stretched and pixelated now you’ve uploaded it? You could have sworn you made all the right changes to get your new font to show up…so why is the old one still displaying? You see what we mean? Unless you’re a web design guru you might want to think about contacting an agency or a freelancer to handle this one for you.
The above examples outline just a handful of ways a WordPress agency can help you take the stress out of web design, so next time you have a WordPress project to organise, don’t rule out the idea of outsourcing.
