We build most of our sites through WordPress, we could write pages on why we prefer it to other formats but instead, here’s an easily digestible list of out top reasons.
2 – It’s easy to edit content. Like, really, really easy. This allows us to step back and give our customers the freedom to post and modify content to their hearts content.
3 – It’s open source. WordPress thrives on it’s massive community who are constantly coming up with new modifications, but also provide you with an unlimited support resource at the click of a button. If you’re having a problem, there’s a good chance someone has had it too and already provided a fix.
4 – It’s constantly updated– WordPress is updated typically more that twice per year, which means you don’t have to worry about your CMS being properly maintained.
5 – Search Engine Optimisation is a breeze – WordPress provide you with some free, fantastic SEO plugins that can get you on the path to Google greatness straight away.
And speaking of plugins…
6 – There are thousands of plugins and extended functionality, both free/open source and premium. There’s a good chance if you need some additional functionality for your website that someone has already developed it and you can get it quickly, easily and cheaply.
7 – It can make having a website designed much cheaper. Some clients and startup businesses are looking for a simplistic, basic website to start off with. WordPress themes can be used and customised to suit the clients needs quickly and therefore can cost much less than a bespoke site. Because a lot of the work is already done, a developer can move a lot quicker and the lead time is typically shorter.
