by Tez Ferguson
So you are considering setting up a new website or upgrading your current setup? You have looked at a number of web developers and got quotes and someone has recommended WordPress?
WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) which enables users the ability to customise and edit content via a backend rather than have to learn to code. Below is a list of the top 10 reasons why we recommend WordPress for your business website, no matter whether you are a small business startup or large corporate identity…
1 – WordPress Powers 34% Of The Internet
We all look at the worldwide web and see a combination of websites, from awfully coded html sites that look like they were made in the 1970’s to beautifully crafted interactive sites with user experience in mind.
In today’s modern age we look for mobile responsive, beautifully crafted sites that are easy to manage. This is where WordPress comes in… With WordPress powering over 34% of the Internet, and 60% of all CMS sites.
2 – You Don’t Need To Be A Developer
One of the best aspects of WordPress is its easy to navigate admin panel. With login credentials, you can add or amend pages and posts in no time. Something that many other website platforms do not offer.
Whilst it means less work for us developers it gives businesses the flexibility to make their own tweaks without the huge price tag.
Gone are the days of having to pay an extortionate hourly rate to change the opening times set on your website. We even included a guide on how to to this! Learn more today.
