WordPress is one of the most commonly used content management systems online today – there is a reason why so many people choose to use it…it is simply great! We recommend many of our clients switch to a WordPress site (usually from either web builder such as Wix or other custom builds). Here are our main reasons why we are in love with good old WordPress…
So Easy to Use!
Lots of people assume WordPress is simply a blogging platform, when in reality it is a really versatile, really easy and simple to use content management system. It is flexible can can be used for pretty much any type of site. It is really easy to get content up onto your pages and there are millions of plugins available to add functionality as well as attractive design features.
As well as millions of plugins, there are also millions of themes which can bring a certain look to your site. Whether you are after a specific photography theme, or perhaps a theme to suit a beauty salon, there are perfect themes for virtually all sites. These themes can often be customised to suit your specific needs as well!
Search Engine Friendly
A true stroke of brilliance from WordPress is that it is fully search engine friendly. It is essential for sites to be SEO friendly, as SEO (search engine optimisation) is the way you can help get your site seen by more people online. There are special SEO plugins to help, as well as easy to adjust backend coding which can also be used.
Easy to Manage
WordPress makes it really easy to manage your site: updates can be done with a single button click and it notifies the user when there are changes or updates to be made. There are also helpful auto backups which can really save your bacon if you make a mistake!
