WordPress is the world’s most popular Content Management System (CMS). Originally “just a blogging” platform, WP has grown to be way way more than that. Now it drives something like 32% of all sites on the web. Incredible.
Outsourcing is the word used to mean hiring in expertise (as opposed to employing someone “in house”) to do a task or series of tasks.
For example, if you book a taxi, you have “outsourced” driving to the taxi firm / driver (instead of buying a car, learning to drive, and driving yourself) – the cost saving of outsourcing, therefore, are not comparable to the costs of driving just this one journey – and your expectations should be adjusted accordingly.
WP Outsourcing is…
Consequently, the phrase “WordPress outsourcing” is given to mean the acquisition, hiring or otherwise obtaining WP related skills for your business project from an external source, without making that person an employee.
Outsourcing to Individuals or Groups
You can outsource development to freelancers (individuals) or agencies (groups of developers).
Outsourcing to Silicon Dales
At Silicon Dales, as a WordPress and WooCommerce development business, we allow creative agencies, and medium to large sized businesses, to outsource their WordPress development, optimization and maintenance tasks to us.
Specifically, expertise in WordPress and WooCommerce is our core competency. Yes, your IT people may know their way around a server, too, but maybe they haven’t scaled a WooCommerce store to process more than $250,000 in $30 transactions in a day. We have. And we have the knowledge gained from other, similar, clients to turn to your WordPress task.
Outsource Complex Projects to Silicon Dales
At Silicon Dales, we focus on larger and more complex WordPress projects – i.e. those likely to require a group of developers.
Smaller projects, try Codeable
We also recommend, if you’re at the smaller, startup or charity end of the spectrum, to give Codeable a try for your next WP project.

Projects Featuring “More Than Just WordPress”
Larger software projects, requiring many developers, in multiple disciplines, or the use of freelance “scrum masters” or UX gurus, should give Toptal a try.
