Why you should use WordPress for your business.
We get asked this regularly enough that I thought it might be useful to tell you why we love WordPress and everything to do with it.
WordPress will always be free for you to use. It is also Open Source meaning that you can improve or alter the source code to create the right site for your needs
Flexible and scalable
WordPress is versatile enough to meet any and all of your needs through its extensive features and plugins. You can build anything from a simple brochure site, or a blog, right through to a large ecommerce site and it's easy to add new features so as your business develops, your website will evolve with it
It’s more important than ever for a website to be mobile friendly to accommodate smartphones and tablets. With WordPress, however, you don’t have to be concerned over that. It’s already mobile friendly, thanks to many of the themes being responsive
Search engine friendly
Search engines prefer sites that are powered by WordPress because its framework is easy to crawl. In fact, Google’s Matt Cutts actually endorsed WordPress during WordCamp San Francisco 2009. His personal blog is on WordPress which has to be a strong endorsement.
Safe and secure
Since WordPress is such a popular CMS, it shouldn’t be surprising that it’s a target for hackers. However, WordPress takes the security of its users very seriously. WordPress constantly updates its software to prevent attacks, as do good plugin in providers. We only use plugins from trusted providers and we keep them updated. We also employ several layers of security on our servers to prevent these problems.
Easy to use.
WordPress is easy to use. The platform is user-friendly, intuitive and easy to learn. Because of it's popularity there is a wealth of tutorials on the internet and if you want a more personal touch we can provide 1 on 1 tuition and our own manuals to get you started.
WordPress has thousands of plugins and themes on offer, allowing you to customize your site to appear and function as your business needs. If you need to customize a theme or plugin to give your site that uniqueness that will make it stand out, you will find no trouble finding a geek to help because WordPress is created using the most popular code language around, the same one that runs FaceBook in fact.
You’re not committed to one hosting provider
If you need to switch a provider or host, either because they can’t handle traffic or you’re just frustrated with them, you can do it without experiencing much downtime or cost. This is because WordPress works with pretty much every server.
Beware of hosting on a platform that locks you into their product. It may be cheap but if you want to move your site you will be struggling to find a host that can work with your site.
Numerous ecommerce solutions
Since you’re using WordPress for your business, then you will be happy to know that there are a number of ecommerce solutions that will convert your site into an all-out digital store.
WordPress keeps getting better
Because WordPress hires top-notch developers, you can be certain that WordPress is only going to get better as time goes on. Also, because WordPress is open source, any developer can enhance the user experience so that it can become the best CMS available.
