How you present your business online has a real, measurable impact on your real-world success. And it’s not just about aesthetics (though a poppin’ Instagram never hurt anyone). It’s also about functionality and user experience.
Your website and app design and development matter. But these are complex, technical areas where it’s easy to go astray.
Our team has spent years in the dev trenches, and they’ve come back with loads of valuable knowledge. Here are some of our most popular articles featuring development tips, tricks, and tools.
Choosing the right plugins for your WordPress site
Part of the reason WordPress remains a content management system (CMS) favorite is its flexibility. With thousands of plugins to choose from, you can incorporate just about any feature, element, or tool you dream of on your WordPress site.
But not all plugins are created equal. How do you find the right one? Check out “Choosing the right plugins for your WordPress site.”

Explore how Google Lighthouse pulls vitals on your site’s performance, accessibility, SEO, and more. Read “Use Google Lighthouse to illuminate website issues.”
Automate Lighthouse during your build to get feedback BEFORE problems creep up
What’s better than using Google Lighthouse to check your site’s health after it’s live? Using it during the build process to nip issues in the bud.
