We’ve been fans of WordPress for quite a while because of the important SEO abilities it has grown to incorporate. Of course, there’s more to it than that. At a high level, here are some pretty great things about WordPress:
- It’s in a constant state of growth, care and evolution. For the foreseeable future, you won’t have to worry about obsolescence. It’s the very nature of the open-source environment.
- It’s well-known and popular, with a big user base. That means it’s pretty easy to get help, find custom programmers or even hire an in-house administrator.
- It’s stable, secure and easy to back up (when properly configured, of course).
Then, when you add the capabilities of thousands of potential plug-ins and themes (some free, some not), you start to see the power that mere mortals can use. Here are a couple of our client sites we’ve completed using WordPress:
From simple contact forms to live chat, you can expand the features and functionality of your site in ways unthinkable just a few years ago. The possibilities are almost endless: Social sharing, auto-responders, image galleries, auctions, payment systems, conditional logic, even entire reservation systems and many more. The best part? No Computer Science degree or resident IT wonk required.
But that doesn’t mean it’s as easy as it sounds. Or that there isn’t a learning curve. Or that you don’t need some good old-fashioned technical and content expertise.
