In case it wasn’t obvious, we’re pretty big fans of WordPress here at AWESEM. We use the web’s most popular CMS to create valuable, first class websites for our clients and we love the flexibility and compatibility that WordPress offers.
But enough about us, why should you look towards WordPress for business websites? Here are five reasons to get you started.
It’s User Friendly
Even if you have no coding experience and find yourself wary of technology, WordPress has a fairly gentle learning curve for users. Building and supporting a large website might be a different kettle of fish but day to day tasks, such as adding new content, can be mastered by even the most nervous user.
It Has Great Compatibility
One of the most frustrating moments is coming to view your brand new website on a mobile device only to discover it looks awful and doesn’t function correctly. With WordPress, you don’t need to worry about that. Your WordPress agency should always cross-browser test any new functionality before it goes live, so your site will look just as crisp and perform as smoothly on a smartphone screen as it does on a desktop.
It’s a Plus for SEO
Search engine optimisation (SEO) is something all website owners need to pay attention to, as it’s hugely important for your site’s visibility online. WordPress websites are designed to be easy to crawl, meaning they’re often favoured by search engines. Additionally, the mobile compatibility we mentioned above is another great boon for SEO.
It Prioritises Security
Each WordPress release is more secure than the one before it, as the WordPress core team are always actively looking for ways to reduce vulnerability risks and make WordPress as safe and secure as possible. You can even set your site to update automatically, so there’s no risk of you forgetting to update to the latest version.
It’s Fully Customisable
Thanks to its open source software and the huge library of themes and plugins at your disposal, there’s really nothing that’s out of scope for a WordPress website. Whatever vision you have planned for your business site, you can achieve it with WordPress. There’s a reason organisations like TechCrunch, BBC America, Sony Music and The New Yorker all use WordPress to power their websites.
