How come I never use WordPress for website development?
Ah, WordPress website "Development". Recently I was asked by a volunteering chapter of a nearby church to "donate my time" by creating a website for them. Volunteering is something I like to do, especially when it means making meals for the homeless (and the socializing that comes with it with other shop keepers), but setting up a WordPress website without payment is simply demeaning, especially when even paying $4 per hour for a project is just slavery.
Below are a few good reason why I never use WordPress for developing websites and web applications. Nearly nobody needs their own WordPress topic nowadays. Simply take a look at what is written on the title page of the WordPress section of ThemeForest: 40,540 WordPress themed & website templates starting at $2. Sure, the more costly topics go for $65 US dollars, but hey, that's still a hot stone for this kind of work.
A single payout of 35 US dollars on top is the fair value of "Webdesign". When you know how to obey YouTubeutorials, you don't have to employ anyone to create a nice, pure website for you. As an alternative, you can become one of these themes developer and resell them on-line with large volumes ($50 * 5,000 Downloads can go a long way), but that's a deal in itself and it's not something I'm excited about, especially the prospects of setting up and maintaining a custom help desk for consistent themed features queries.
Inexpensive WordPress topics are a blessing for any programmer, but the trouble is that once one of your customers gets a hint of this, they will immediately think "WordPress is easy", so when they ask you to set up the topic they just bought, they think they can get away with giving you a small set fee for your hour.
But the big issue here is the discrepancy between what the customer sees on a screen and the work you know you have to do when you go beyond basic topic sets and the customer begins to ask for more sophisticated functional requirements. These asymmetries create a balance of powers in deals that can sometimes lead to the disappearance of the deal, a kind of worse -case scenario deal-maker.
With WordPress "development", the customer's original expectations of a low-cost plug-and-play website and your technical understanding of the technical demands to building a feature-rich web app generate an information imbalance where the customer, the minute he doesn't get the enhanced functionality he's asked for cheaply, thinks you're obscuring the complexity (and value ) of the feature query so you seem to be deceiving it.
My own personally experienced is that creating a WordPress customized topic is simply not really rewarding if the value of the agreement is less than $10,000. Some of me wonder why the industry is tolerating this, and I have come to the conclusion that most web designers only have high qualities that make them horrible bargaining chips.
" This is the most disdained term in web development. Okay, so a simple, customizable design is inexpensive, and you'll find that you can quickly become an expert web development engineer by dragging and dropping, but sometimes you'll run into a face. It asks if you can "only" create a calendaring function with authenticated users that allows corporate members to synchronize their Gmail calendaring personally with the website, and repeatedly with function queries... for a plug-in you haven't developed.
Since your customer is probably not willing to spend more on these adjustments, you need to be imaginative when it comes to diminishing work, and that in itself is quite stressing. Well, now that you've down-loaded, deployed and preconfigured your customer's theme...and succeeded in delivering their unfeasible plug-in customisations just under their budgets, they'll ask you to create contents for their website so their small company can do well on Google local.
If you don't supply, it' gonna get around that you're a horrible web-engineer. It' s your turn to make ponies and study how to spell well, how to refresh your client's blogs once a month with your own custom web site's exclusive contents, and how to dump your IT diploma in the can. Just now, if you're just getting started with web development, make sure you don't get trapped by "flipping a few WordPress pages" here and there to settle your invoices.
WordPress does exist. Repackaging legacy WordPress topics and typing searching optimized contents to resell sites to SMEs will exhaust you, stun your brain, and consume the finite amount of your precious resources needed to fine-tune your true web development batch. The Ditching WordPress is a piece of cake in a fiercely contested, rapidly developing world.
Inexpensive, easy-to-configure designs allow anyone to create a simple WordPress website, reducing the costs of web designing. The management of customer expectation is expensive. The reason for this is an information imbalance on the open source markets, i.e. the set-up is inexpensive, adaptations are complicated and not common. Most of the customer loyalty spend is blogging to place in Google ads for your site.
