  1. Great article Emma. One thing most of the business owners get wrong with WordPress is that they don’t need a developer at all if they choose it as the CMS for their website. Although that can be true to some extent for a general website, still if you want your brand to have a unique identity you need customization to be done on it which portrays your brand’s image. And I don’t think it can be done without hiring a professional WordPress developer.
