turn, has given rise to the number of developers
who have relevant experience and knowledge of
this CMS. Out of the millions of developers its
tough to make the selection for the top WordPress

Step 1 Your Top WordPress Developer Must Have
These Qualities A WordPress developer is often
regarded as a WordPress architect who uses this
dynamic CMS to build websites. Anyone can become
a WordPress developer as it is user-friendly but
if they possess these 5 qualities then they are
the recommended WordPress developer In-depth
Knowledge of WordPress Any developer who
consistently works on WordPress will possess
technical knowledge about the platforms themes,
plugins, tool building, command line, etc.
A naive will not be able to suggest the right
themes and plugins for the appropriate
situation. If the top WordPress developers you
are hiring cannot use their experience and
knowledge to create customized websites for your
business then their hiring is a complete waste of
time. WordPress is an open-source platform that
is easy to use, without technical knowledge a
WordPress developer cannot offer what you are
looking for. Technical knowledge makes them
experts to create dynamic, vibrant, and
customized websites for businesses in different
domains. Apart from this, make sure the developer
you are hiring has active participation in the
WordPress community.
Understands WordPress Security You, being an
entrepreneur, can work on WordPress as an
experiment. But WordPress developers should have
thorough knowledge about the security threats in
WordPress. This is one of the most important
qualities of these developers for which you need
to hire WordPress developers. If they suggest
you download plugins from well-known piracy sites
or choose the cheapest hosting then you should
beware of them. Knowledge about security is
essential to become a recommended WordPress
Aware of the latest WordPress trends Can you do
business successfully if you are not well-aware
of the strategies trending among your
competitors? You cannot work in a vacuum, right?
Similarly, the WordPress developers that you are
hiring must have the knowledge of all the latest
trends about WordPress. A proficient WordPress
developer will have knowledge about all the
latest versions, plugins, and themes launched in
the market. This helps them in debugging and
customizing the website. With these qualities,
they will be able to provide a flawlessly
functional website.
Technical Knowledge An efficient WordPress
developer will not be dependent upon the themes
and plugins. They are experienced and smart
enough to create their own theme widgets so that
users like you with lesser technical knowledge
can use them without any issue. Moreover, apart
from being proficient in WordPress, they would
have already learned PHP codes. A good
professional does not limit their learning and
scope. By possessing technical knowledge, the
WordPress developers will have the potential to
follow competent web development processes.
Experience in various domains To gain
experience, you should perform challenging tasks.
By using WordPress, you can create websites
ranging from a personal blog to an eCommerce
website. Make sure the eCommerce development
company you hire has worked on as many domains as
possible. An efficient web developer has plenty
of experience in developing websites for a
different niche. You do not need to search for a
WordPress developer who has the experience,
particularly in your niche. But, they must have
created different types of websites.

industry experience to perform installation and
configuration processes seamlessly. Responsive

WordPress website responsive with the help of the

WordPress eCommerce development company must
ensure that your website will work seamlessly on
different devices and provide a smooth
 navigation experience to all the users.
Migration Migrating your website to WordPress

But developers find it tough and risky to do.

company that has complete confidence in their
proficiency. They must ensure that their

data get lost during migration and perform this
process impeccably. Plugin Development As
explained in the previous step, a proficient
WordPress developer will think beyond the tools
they have in-hand in the WordPress directory..

Strict NDA Safeguarding the crucial information
and ideas is the utmost priority for any
organization. Not all web developers are

experience is much more in numbers and quality as

quality issues as they have not worked with as
many different clients as a developer who takes
freelance projects or work on a contract basis.

expenditure on them.
