I make websites for a living. I do this usually for mom and pop shops or as a subcontractor, with the occasional large corp site thrown into the mix.
One standard I hold very highly in my job is taking full advantage of the power a content management system like WordPress provides for a business. A website with WordPress as its backbone gives a business the ability to manage what they know best – their message.
I feel that it is part of my job to empower a business with the ability to edit all parts of their site, especially the little details like phone numbers and social media links. To that end, I use a killer combination of plugins that makes a site stand on its own: Custom Field Suite (plugin page & author page) for post meta and OptionTree (plugin page & github page) for site options.
