When choosing a website company to design your business website you want to make sure that you’re getting yourself into a platform that can grow with your company. Finding out the platform is single handedly one of the most important decision factors. We’ve done the research for you and here are the reasons why we use WordPress and why we think it’s the best platform for any business to use no matter if you are starting out or if you have a well established web presence.
WordPress can grow with your business
The last thing you want is to choose a platform that can’t grow with your business. I’ve seen a lot of startups that choose such services as Squarespace, Weebly and Wix to later find out that they cannot add a functionality to their site because of the limitations of that platform. With WordPress, you don’t have to worry about that. If you want to add eCommerce to your site in the future, no problem. If you want to integrate a calendar functionality that is tied to your Google calendar, no problem! If you can dream it, we can make it happen because we have the right platform.
Easy to use CMS (Content Management System)
We are strong believers in empowering our clients. With WordPress we can train you on how to add pages and manage your own site. It’s very user friendly. If you can use word you will have no problem using WordPress.
WordPress is opensource which means there are developers all over the world that can add functionality to your site. This means you won’t have any issues finding a developer to work on your site. Other website companies have proprietary CMS’s, which means they are the only ones that can make updates to your site. For this reason, they can set the prices and unfortunately you don’t have any options on shopping that price and they will nickle and dime you to death. Another HUGE benefit is that WordPress is constantly updating it’s platform. Proprietary CMS’s are dated as soon as they released, which can add a variety of problems and security issues.
With the fact that WordPress is so popular, there are millions of free plugins that we can use to add complex functionality at 0 to little cost. Why develop something from scratch when there are a ton of plugins that have already been built to utilize.
Search Engine friendly
We have an on-site SEO package that allows us to optimize your WordPress site so that Search Engines can find and read your content. It’s much easier to optimize a WordPress site than other sites partly due to that fact that there are SEO plugins that help us do just that. For example, a sitemap generator once installed will continue to update your sitemap automatically for you as you add pages.
According to Managewp.com 74.6 Million sites depend on WordPress. That’s a lot of sites powered by WordPress.
Safe and Secure
WordPress constantly updates their system which includes improved security updates. We also offer a security bundle in which we make sure your site is up to date and is using the most recent version of WordPress.
If you are considering updating your site or getting a new site, make sure you are selecting the right platform and a company that can grow with you, like us! We are here to answer any questions you may have and we are here to help you get to that next level.
