Why Use WordPress for Your Website?
Although WordPress has been around since early 2003 and has grown into a excellent, robust content management system, some people still think of “blog” when they hear “WordPress.” But, oh, it’s so much more!
WordPress has many benefits, one of the top being that is is incredibly easy to learn and use. But don’t be fooled by the ease of use, it is an ideal solution for content management no matter what type of website you need. Since 2004 Beers Design has used WordPress to power basic blogs and simple brochure sites, but also many very large enterprise level websites containing hundreds of pages across multiple sections of the site. WordPress truly can be the ideal solution for any website.
Just a few reasons to use WordPress…
|Incredibly easy to learn and use – WordPress has a short, easy learning curve, if you can use Microsoft Word, you can certainly use WordPress. With it’s WYSIWYG Editor (“what you see is what you get”), formatting content, making links, adding images and more takes just a mouse click.|
|No special skills or software needed – You don’t need to know HTML or any coding language, just how to type and use your mouse. There’s no software to download, authorized users can log into their WordPress Dashboard and manage content from anywhere they have a computer (or mobile device) with internet connection.|
|WordPress is established, stable, and actively developed – The team at Automattic actively maintains WordPress and releases updates regularly. This ensures that WordPress stays current and secure. The company has been around for years and is only growing, ensuring long-term commitment and stability for WordPress.|
|Open source – Because WordPress is open source, the software itself is free to download and install. It can also be directly edited if needed, and plugins can be easily developed to enhance the core functionality as needed. This not only reduces the cost for WordPress powered website projects, it means that if WordPress doesn’t do what you need, there’s almost certainly a plugin out there that does.|
|Robust themes are possible – WordPress has great documentation for developers, and excellent flexibility for theme options. This means that your website can be planned and designed according to your needs and desires, and your vision can come to life with the right WordPress theme, without many of the limitations common with some CMS systems.|
|Unlimited content – With WordPress you can create an unlimited number of pages and posts. There are no limits to how large your website can grow, now or down the road.|
|Integrated content creation and management – Need a “regular website” and a blog? No problem. Because WordPress can be used to power many different types of content (web pages, blogs, articles, etc.), there is no need to use multiple software installations to power your entire site, no matter how complex. You will have one login, one software to learn, one place to manage all the content for your website.|
