Why We Use WordPress
WordPress powers nearly a third of the globe’s websites. They vary from small personal blogs to the complex sites owned by major corporations like Sony, Time Inc., New York Post and NBC.
WordPress is one of many site builders and content management systems that you can download and install for free, but it has unique features that make it the most popular CMS (content management system) today.
WordPress vs. Everyone Else
WordPress is the most popular of the three most often used site builders followed by Joomla and Drupal.
All of them are free to download and use. They can all be customized with add-ons for specialized functionality to suit the needs of any individual.
Both Joomla and Drupal require a certain level of technical know-how and familiarity with HTML CSS and the programming language PHP.
WordPress on the other hand, allows experienced and beginners to work at any level.
This allows beginners to set up a site quickly without knowledge of code or programming.
8 Reasons Why We Use WordPress
Here are 8 reasons why we use WordPress to build your Business

WordPress can be used to run large complex websites for corporations, for small businesses to manage their sales and customer services and much more.
The days of WordPress only being limited to personal Blogs is long gone.
WordPress websites can become fully functional eCommerce stores. WordPress can be used to showcase a portfolio, host a social network, group, podcast or even become the next YouTube and host Videos.
Whatever your business needs, we can find everything we want to create a fully functional business website using any of the thousands of Plugins that WordPress provides.
Not only does WordPress offer thousands of plugins, but there are also millions of Themes to choose from. (For any type of business imaginable).
If you don’t find one that’s perfect for your business, it’s quick and easy to find someone who can whip a theme together for you on many Marketplaces.
Taking these into consideration, it’s no wonder that WordPress is such a popular choice. The endless choices mean that you can rest assured that there will always be resources to help you grow and scale your business to any size you need.

Should a plugin not be found that delivers a required function, we can always develop a Plugin to suit your needs or work with a developer to do it for us if we don’t have the time.
