WordPress started as a blogging tool and, over time, evolved as the best website builder and a powerful Content Management System (CMS) used by many designers and webmasters all over the world. Approximately 1/3 of all internet websites are built and maintained with the help of WordPress. Small businesses and big players like Facebook, Target, The New York Times, Sony, to name a few, use WordPress for their websites and blogs.
Our clients often ask us why we use WordPress to build websites, what is so great about it and why we prefer it to other platforms. Below are the main reasons we love it and hope that you will too:
Templates for Different Types of Business
WordPress supports a plethora of different purposes. It offers a variety of templates to help any business. You can start a blog, create a business website, start an online store, build a membership or community website, or sell online services and courses. WordPress will support any project and will offer a template for any purpose.
Themes to Customize Your Template
Once we establish the right template, it can be customized even further to create a unique website for your business. We will upload your business logo, change the colors, background, and fonts, and add beautiful images and sliders to create a website that reflects your brand and vision. All this can be done using WordPress resources.
Plugins to Enhance Site’s Functionality
After determining the right template and customizing visuals, we will use WordPress plugins to enhance your site’s functionality. Among many useful plugins are search analytics, contact, membership, registration forms, and many others.
WordPress is created using high-quality code aligned with Google and other search engine’s requirements. It offers special plugins designed to optimize your website further and make it easily discovered by search engines. WordPress websites tend to rank higher in organic search.
User Friendly and Easy to Manage Websites
WordPress comes with a built-in updates Content Management System allowing you to update your plugins and themes from within your WordPress admin dashboard. It is easy to manage your WordPress website once it is developed. You can add and delete text, upload new images, create new pages.
Security and Updates
WordPress is developed with the highest security in mind; it is a very safe and secure platform to run a website. You are notified of any updates and are able to secure your information by creating backups. Overall, WordPress places high value on the security of your website and data. To keep your data safe from hacking or any accident, you can automatically create backups with the help of the backup plugin.
These are the main reasons why WordPress has always been our platform of choice. We at Alice Wonder Web Design Studio want to create for you a distinct website tailored to your needs, and one that you can easily upkeep and manage once we are finished with our job. WordPress gives us the tools we need in order for this to happen.
