Are you starting a website or an online storefront in WordPress to promote your business?

WordPress is the right choice for setting up your website.

However, it can be a little tricky to tweak around.

This is especially true if you’re starting from zero.

While people say that WordPress is relatively easy to tackle, sometimes a developer’s help is still required – both for the front-end and back-end management.

That’s why you need to collaborate with a WordPress development company.

In this article, we’ll explain how you can work with the right one.

1. Industrial Experience

Oftentimes, entrepreneurs hire an agency that doesn’t understand the core of their business.

Consequentially, you’ll spend a lot of time onboarding them as with new staff, taking away your precious time from actual work.

Make sure to collaborate with an agency that has operated in your industry.

If they’ve helped drive similarly-field companies to success, they might as well know the step-by-step that will ensure growth for your business.

Even more, when you encounter a specific issue or if you’re confused about decision-making, they’ll help guide you in the right direction based on their previous insights.

Working with an agency that understands the ins and outs of your industry means fewer risks in the collaborative process.

As a result, both the agency and you can deliver a highly satisfactory website project and start monetizing your WordPress according to the timeline.

2. Portfolio

Each business has its own requirements when building a website, be it in terms of style or functionality.

So, when hiring an agency to handle your WordPress website customization, review their portfolio thoroughly.

What types of websites have they developed?

How do they design their websites?

Does their website style lean more toward sleeker or more colorful tones?

Or perhaps, are they well-versed in both?

It’s always good to have a reference in mind.

This way, when you’re making a judgment, you already have a benchmark to start with.

For instance, Intelivita – a well-known U.S. web development agency – is experienced in creating websites with a clean and modern user interface.

Their clients include the popular Marketplace app LabelXchange.

Take a look at an example of their project below:


3. Tech Stack Compatibility

Using WordPress for your business website can be your next high-profit revenue stream.

However, some agencies are not really specialized in WordPress.

The tell-tale sign is they’ll recommend that you migrate your website to heavier and costlier platforms.

Some agencies are even well-equipped with a range of tech tasks and innovations, which can be beneficial if you’re looking to scale up your WordPress project in the long term.

Perhaps now you’ll start with a small and simple website.

But if luck strikes and the market chips in, at least you’ll know who to call when you need to expand your tech development project.

So, make sure to work with an agency that knows more than just the general WordPress setup guide but all the way to securing your website with advanced security tools and setting up a storefront with WooCommerce.

4. Availability

Agencies are often a “yes man”.

They’ll comply with your requests, only to find out that you’re one of the accounts left behind.

In your initial meeting with them, clarify if they have the bandwidth and human resources to take you in.

A question such as “How many of your employees can you outsource to our project?” can be a good ice-breaker, especially if you’re the owner of a small-to-medium business (SMB).

If you’re a corporate client, ask the agency to create human resource allocation plans and an in-depth timeline of your project deliverables.

By following these tips, you’ll determine whether the agency is a good fit for your business at the moment.

5. Interpersonal Aspects

There are many types of WordPress website development that your potential agency might be knowledgeable of.

However, if you feel like you can’t maintain a good relationship with them, then it’ll just be as difficult to sustain your project.

Communication is the heart of your project continuity, and yet, its importance remains underestimated.

Therefore, hire an agency that upholds transparency when reporting project metrics and establishes a good communication loop with your internal team.

If not, believe us – your project can get awry pretty fast.


WordPress is one of the best platforms to create a website.

It brings a wealth of flexibility into how your website should look and work.

However, if you’re handling your project to a partner who doesn’t understand your business or checks all the boxes, it’ll be hard to achieve what you’ve set up in the beginning.

Choose an agency you can trust.

An agency who has proven experience under their belt across diverse industries and case projects.

Perhaps you’re thinking of a name who has worked with the likes of Oxitec and Samsung.

Thankfully, you’re in the right place.
