How to Choose the Best WordPress Development Company

Your ideal WordPress development company will build custom or theme websites that meet your expectations.

Consider the following factors in your decision:

  • Expertise
  • Reputation
  • Team size
  • Location
  • Support
  • Maintenance
  • Hosting
  • Digital marketing services
  • SEO/SEM services
  • Hourly rate

Whether your business is a startup, small-to-medium business (SMB), or enterprise, O8 works to understand your WordPress website requirements. It’s the best way to determine whether our marketing agency is a good fit for your needs.

3 Signs Your Website Is Out Of Date

Your website is the first place prospects go to learn more about your business. Here are the top three signs you need a website redesign right now:

  • Low visitor count: poor graphics or mobile design prompts users to bounce
  • Traffic source: you don’t provide an optimal user experience on all devices
  • High bounce rate: visitors aren’t interacting with your website at all

Fixing these issues improves your website performance and attracts potential customers to your brand instead of turning them away.

Web Design Best Practices

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to web design. But the most successful processes share similar characteristics.

Here are some web design best practices:

  • Client communication: ensure everyone’s on the same page and the project moves forward
  • Project management: develop a well-defined roadmap with deadlines for each component
  • Content gathering: share requested materials via collaboration tools and methods
  • Ongoing support: offer a level of support required by the client and the initial project

Following these principles makes the web design process less stressful and produces a website that gets results.

Developing Industry Solutions

WordPress is a popular choice among service industry and B2B businesses for creating lead-generation websites. Google Analytics, Facebook Ads, and other digital marketing tools are easy to set up within the CMS. Plus, you can seamlessly integrate popular landing page and A/B testing tools like Instapage. WordPress also makes it simple to change layouts and content for conversion rate optimization (CRO).

WordPress vs. Drupal

WordPress takes the lead over Drupal for admin user experience. The CMS offers ready-made themes that eliminate the cost and timeline barriers involved in creating a website. WordPress is ideal for SMBs, publications, eCommerce stores, startups, and nonprofits. It integrates well with WooCommerce.

Drupal beats WordPress as the enterprise-level CMS platform for complex work environments or project needs. The CMS is better suited for web applications as opposed to websites. Drupal works best for higher education, government, and enterprises. It also has a decent integration with Shopify.

Both WordPress and Drupal work well with other software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms when hosted on platforms such as Pantheon. The CMSs also have enthusiastic and vibrant open-source communities.

5 Reasons to Choose Open-Source Software Solutions

Open-source software is free. But that’s not the only perk.

Here are five reasons O8 loves open source:

  • Control: use and change code—no vendor or licensing agreement
  • Security: peer review, test, and modify information—find bugs and fix issues sooner
  • Training: work on real-world projects—learn from other developers in the group
  • Community: share knowledge and best practices—collaborate with a worldwide team
  • Stability: download/install the latest upgrades—no waiting on an IT provider or new release

Open source allows developers to work together to create high-quality web applications with much less effort than if they had to build them on their own.
