What is so great about WordPress?
The #1 reason so many companies rely on WordPress (WP) to run their company website is flexibility. WP has many plugins, including WooCommerce, which is the WP development company Automattic’s e-commerce solution.
It’s free and open source
That’s right; there is no acquisition cost for WP. The software is free as in beer, which means you’ll have more beer money. Don’t confuse this with no need to maintain your website though as updates are frequently released and need to be installed to keep your site safe.It powers 30% of the world’s websites
Doing the math, this works out to be over 100 million websites! That is a lot! That many companies must be onto a winner, surely?
Functionality is just a few clicks away
That's right, you can add SEO functionality using Yoast SEO, or Smush for image compression (not sexy, but pretty darned useful). With thousands of plugins available (not all actively maintained), the function you need is probably possible with minimal cost and fuss.
It's SEO friendly, just as Google
That's right, many of today's websites are modelled on techniques WordPress pioneered! WP has a load of standard functions that search engines, like Google love.
It's designed for everyone!
That's right; if you're a non-technical user, you can quickly get around and make the changes you need. Creating content, child's play. If you're a geek, it's all there. You gain access to the code, or simple interfaces all suited to your level, beginner to expert.
