WordPress Developer Edinburgh

I have been an Edinburgh based Freelance WordPress Developer for many of my 12+ years in this industry. WordPress has become the go to platform for most e-commerce and brochure style websites and I have worked with WordPress since its early days, back when it was mainly a humble blogging platform!

If you are looking for an Expert WordPress Developer, you've come to the right place.

How can I help?

I can build you a totally bespoke WordPress website from the ground up. I have years of experience building bespoke WordPress themes and plugins and can tailor the final product to your exact specifications.

I regularly work with dedicated designers to convert designs from the likes of Adobe XD and Illustrator to WordPress themes. However, I can also design the site myself, meaning I can take you from start to finish, including hosting and SEO.

I'm also well versed with WooCommerce, having built many bespoke e-commerce websites using it in the past.

The Benefits of Building Bespoke Websites with ACF

Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) is a WordPress plugin that allows developers to extend the functionality of WordPress and allows us to make it easy for a client to update their content in a structured and easy to understand way.

I prefer building WordPress sites this way over using bloated themes with the likes of Elementor for the following reasons:

  1. Unique Design and Flexibility:

    • Personalized Look: With a custom WordPress website, you'll enjoy a one-of-a-kind design tailored to your brand and vision, creating a visually stunning and distinctive online presence.
    • No Design Limitations: Pre-made themes often come with preset layouts and styles that may not match your specific requirements. A custom WordPress website allows for a design that perfectly fits your needs.
  2. Enhanced Performance:

    • Efficient Code: Custom WordPress websites are optimized for performance by including only necessary code and functionality. This results in faster loading times and an improved user experience.
    • No Unnecessary Features: Pre-made themes often include features and plugins that may not be relevant. Custom WordPress websites eliminate such bloatware, ensuring efficiency.
  3. Scalability and Future-Proofing:

    • Ready for Growth: Custom WordPress websites can be designed with future scalability in mind, allowing for the easy addition of new features, content, or functionality as your needs evolve.
    • Specific Requirements: Custom WordPress websites are ideal when you have unique requirements or specific business needs. Tailored solutions can be built to meet your exact specifications.
  4. SEO Friendliness:

    • Optimized for Search Engines: Custom WordPress websites can be built with SEO best practices from the start, ensuring clean code, optimized images, and the ability to customize meta tags and structured data for improved search engine visibility.
  5. Enhanced Security:

    • Robust Security: Custom WordPress websites are less vulnerable to security risks because they don't rely on third-party code or plugins that may have vulnerabilities. Dedicated security measures can be implemented for your protection.
  6. Consistent Branding:

    • Unified Brand Identity: Custom WordPress websites ensure that your brand identity remains consistent throughout your online presence. You have control over colors, fonts, and other branding elements.
  7. Exceptional User Experience:

    • Unique Website Experience: Custom WordPress websites offer a unique and engaging user experience, setting you apart from competitors and potentially leading to increased user engagement and conversions.
  8. Ownership and Control:

    • No Licensing Restrictions: Pre-made themes often come with licensing limitations. Custom WordPress websites give you complete ownership and control over your online presence without any legal or licensing concerns.
  9. Support and Maintenance:

    • Easier Maintenance: With a custom WordPress website, you'll benefit from a well-understood codebase, making maintenance and updates straightforward as WordPress evolves.
    • Dedicated Support: Enjoy personalized support from your developer who is intimately familiar with your website's architecture, ensuring your site remains reliable and up-to-date.

In summary, choosing a custom WordPress website built with ACF offers you the advantages of a unique design, enhanced performance, scalability, SEO friendliness, security, and an exceptional user experience. It provides the foundation for a successful online presence while offering dedicated support and ease of maintenance. Your website will fully align with your brand's vision and requirements.
