Do I Need A Website Designer For A WordPress Site?

In this digital age, building an online presence is essential for any business to grow. Platforms like WordPress can offer easier solutions for web design as opposed to building a site from the ground up. Though designing a WordPress website can be fairly simple, investing in a web design can provide added enhancements.

WordPress website designers can ease this process, creating a unique and professional website for your business. While creating a site yourself can save money, hiring a web design can take your website to the next level.

Why hire a WordPress web designer?

With an array of pre-built designs and plugins, WordPress has been a popular choice for many e-commerce businesses. Web design agencies- like Dexterous, can provide a range of benefits for your business’s site. WordPress websites can unlock a whole range of avenues to boost your brand.

Designers can add many essential elements to WordPress websites, such as: 

  • Unique designs to help your business stand out
  • Easy to navigate pages to enhance user experience
  • Stunning custom logos
  • Headers, information buttons, badges & graphics
  • Graphics for social channels
  • Optimized images and ad banners
  • Showcases your product range

Designers can not only create your website’s design but also help with technical aspects such as:

  • Setting up web hosting
  • Installing and configuring WordPress themes and plugins
  • Creating key pages of your site – i.e. Home, shop, about, contact
  • Creating your online store and payment systems
  • Making your website SEO friendly
  • Ensuring your website is mobile-friendly
  • Email marketing design
  • Teaching you how to use WordPress


Designing a professional e-commerce website can take time – which can especially impact smaller businesses. For business owners, hiring a designer allows you to focus your attention on the key areas of your business. That way you and your employees won’t have to worry about installing plugins and other technical aspects.

Having a unique, stylish web design is key for brand building. Though WordPress has a range of design themes, having a personal design can help you stand out from your competitors. Anyone can use a generic web layout, but a fresh design offers users something different!

Is creating a WordPress site free?

One of the benefits of WordPress is that it is free to use – however, there are premium features that occur costs. Though WordPress has a host of themes & plugins you may find that you will need to pay for certain ones. In this case, you may as well hire a design agency as they can create custom themes to support branding.
