When you decide to set up a website for your organisation one of the first decisions you need to make is which CMS you’ll be using. There are plenty of options out there but WordPress is the first choice for most businesses, for very good reason. There are many positives that have led to WordPress becoming the world’s most popular CMS, powering nearly 27% of global websites, and we’re here today to share five of those reasons with you.
When you choose WordPress, the design world is your oyster. However you want your website to look, feel and perform, there’ll be a combination of themes and plugins that helps you achieve exactly what you imagine in your head. And what if it doesn’t already exist? A WordPress agency can help you build your dream website from scratch.
Ease of Use
Unlike some CMS’ that are needlessly complicated, WordPress can be used by everybody from an experienced professional to a complete beginner. Watching just a few short tutorials is all you need to be able to tweak content, add blog posts, interact with site visitors and monitor your website stats.
WordPress is known for being search engine friendly, whichever design you choose. Of course, there are other factors to consider (mobile responsiveness and security, to name just a couple) but WordPress has some great built-in features and plugins that will help you boost your site’s SEO from the moment it goes live for the first time.
Security is one of the most important things to consider when setting up your site, especially if it’s going to contain sensitive business information or allow transactions to take place. Luckily, WordPress has great security and both new and improved features are added with every new release. There are also plenty of high quality plugins and hosting services that will help you boost your security even further.
The WordPress community is bigger and more engaged than any other CMS community in existence. Whatever query you have, a quick Google search will point you in the direction of a forum or local community group who are more than willing to help you out with any issues you run into while setting up your website.
