Pretty much every business owner has heard of WordPress. It has been around since 2003 and is an open source content publishing system that contains some powerful features. Each year sees new and improved advancements as well as more mix-and-match widgets, plugins and fresh responsive themes.
The reason why it has become so popular is because it offers users such versatility. It has lots of business-friendly tools and an easy-to-use content management system. Even the ‘big-boys’ of the business world are using the platform, such as eBay, General Motors and Reuters News. In fact, over 7.6 million sites are running WordPress across all business sectors of every size imaginable.
From a web designers point of view, I enjoy the flexibility that WordPress offers. It is an ideal platform for me to create beautiful websites for my clients who may or may not want to go on to maintain the site for themselves. Because the platform is so user-friendly, many website owners can easily learn how to manage the basics for themselves, so this makes WordPress an ideal choice for sole-traders and single entrepreneurs who are running on a tight budget and would like to keep their costs down.
For those that are less tech-savvy, having your WordPress site maintained by me means that you don’t have to worry about a thing. I can keep your site up to date with the latest updates and can apply new and useful plugins and tools that can really benefit your business. Here are some reasons why I enjoy working with WordPress so much, and why it is a good choice for your business:
WordPress Plugin Stability
Pretty much all WordPress plugins do not need to have updates at different times. This can be a great time-saver and requires less monitoring and maintenance. This is why it is great for those businesses that cannot afford much downtime for their website for updates and long drawn out maintenance.
Multiple Site Option
WordPress now give their users the ability to host multiple sites on the same installation. So those running a sales-based site can now create individual sites for each of your sales representatives without the need to buy extra hosting packages or websites.
For any business owner who has previously had to work with an unnecessarily complex CMS, WordPress have made things a whole lot simpler! Fancy a change of mood or a site makeover? You can switch up your theme in as little as a few seconds. Forgot to include a link or tag in a post? You can quickly edit your post to insert your missing information without having to re-open your article completely. Internal linking is easy through a drop-down menu option. Plus if you do choose to outsource your website maintenance, you can be rest assured that the costs will not bite into a large chunk of your budget.
