Why Use WordPress Over Custom Developed Websites

WordPress has been around for several years now, and what started as a very simple blogging platform, has morphed into a website development powerhouse.  There is one website element that just about every client I have worked with has asked me for; that is they want the ability to update their own content.  WordPress is the answer.

WordPress has evolved, period.  What was once used as a platform for creating small blogs and online journals now has limitless possibilities.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with WordPress here is a brief explanation as to what it is and how it works.

WordPress is the framework that a website is built on.  By creating a simple to navigate control panel WordPress users are able to update graphics, layouts, and content with ease.  This means you do not have to be a programming wizard to manage your website.  Even better, WordPress is “open source” software that means thousands of programmers and designers can use the framework to create thousands of customizations.

So while WordPress enables the novice user to update and manage their website, it also enables professional users the ability to fully customize websites for their clients’ needs.  It truly is the best of both worlds.

Another major benefit to using WordPress is the cost.  If you wanted to have a website built from scratch it could cost you many thousands of dollars, and that is only to get the website up and running.  What about content updates, layout changes, and technological advances?  If you aren’t using WordPress then you will be paying for all of those changes.  With WordPress you can make those changes yourself or pay a small fee to your web designer to make the updates.

WordPress truly provides the best of both worlds.  If you are looking for an easy-to-use solution that is also professional in appearance and sales conversion friendly, then ask us how we can help integrate a WordPress site for your business.
