Why Hire A Professional Software Developer?

Performance, or how fast the content on your page loads, is a major factor when it comes to getting people to actually view your website.
With so many demands on our time and attention, mobile users expect the page to load in 2 seconds, or they’re clicking away. Pages that take 5 seconds to load will lose 40 percent of their web traffic.
A website built on the latest, cutting edge frameworks will have better performance than pre-built solutions running on last decade’s tech.
This is related to performance. Google’s search algorithm values the performance and speed of websites now more than ever. Speed is one of the single most important factors in organic online growth. If you want to be at the top of the Google search, you need a fast website.
In addition to performance, other factors such as headings, images and accessibility go into getting to the top of a search engine, and a programmer knows what and how to do what it takes to get you there.
A pre-built framework can only do so much, and if you are using the same framework everyone else is using, your website is going to look like everyone else’s website. If you want to stand out, hire a programmer who can make the custom layout you want. Programmers enjoy learning new things (You have to when you work in an industry that so rapidly grows and changes), so they can also offer new ideas that make your site even more interesting and click worthy.
