Why WordPress?

WordPress is, by far, the most popular open source Content Management System (CMS), used by approximately 75 million websites.

WordPress is free to install, deploy, and upgrade.

Thousands of plugins and templates power a flexible and simple interface, which reduces development costs and deployment time.

Our team has many years of accumulated knowledge and resources to deploy high quality websites using WordPress.

Here are a few reasons why it’s our top choice for clients:

1. The most popular CMS in the world

WordPress market share 2019. Ill.: 9bureau.dk

WordPress holds the largest CMS market share by far, and currently accounts for over a quarter of all websites.

As a result, many users are already familiar with the WordPress CMS, requiring less staff training when building a new site.

WordPress was by May 6. 2019 used by 60.6% of all the websites whose content management system we know.

This is 33.9% of all websites.

 

2. Open Source with room for expansion

WordPress can be self-hosted, so there are no costs associated with downloading, installing, and upgrading. There are more than 50,000 WordPress plugins (often free), such as slideshows, contact forms, SEO optimization, etc.

3. Highly customizable for great flexibility

WordPress is popular because it meets the demands of many users with its flexible framework, which allows designers and developers to create and modify layouts and applications.

Coupled with user-generated extensions, websites are no longer limited by enterprise extensions.

Our team has experience extending WordPress functionality, as well as incorporating a wide range of plugins, to meet our clients’ unique demands.

4. Designed for anyone, not just developers

Before WordPress became a popular CMS for website development, it was developed for non-tech savvy bloggers.

So, most of the user-interface components are easy to use, and there are written and recorded manuals available for easily learning how to use WordPress functions.

Our team handles all the complexities of setting up and customizing your website; all you have to do is to update the content on pages, posts, widgets, etc.

5. Lower setup and maintenance costs

WordPress incurs fewer setup, customization, and maintenance costs in comparison to other Open Source CMS like Drupal and Joomla.

Additionally, it is relatively easier to find WordPress designers and developers if more customization or development is necessary in the future.

You don’t get locked down by a static website or proprietary CMS that is costly to tweak after initial development.

WordPress can be a quick win for improving your customer experience.
