Why we use WordPress for client websites

WordPress is the most popular open source Content Management System (CMS) in the world powering approximately 75 million websites and it’s completely free to install, expand-on and upgrade.

WordPress holds the title for being the most popular Content Management System (CMS) in the world, accounting for around 60% of the CMS market, and it powers more than 30% of websites on the internet!

Before it became popular WordPress was a blogging platform for non-tech savvy bloggers. To this day, it still has this ease-of-use at heart with the user interface being simple but feature-rich. Everything is well organised, allowing you to browse through your site’s pages and blog articles.

WordPress is so widely used because it meets the demands of so many users with its flexible framework, which allows developers and designers to create and modify layouts and applications. Coupled with a library of over 56,000 free user-generated plugins, website expansion is no longer limited by expensive development post-launch.

As before, WordPress is completely free. However, it’s also simpler to use and learn than other CMS platforms like Drupal, Joomla and other content management systems, meaning that you need to provide less training for your team. Because of this, development is also faster, allowing you to save money on the most expensive part of getting a new website with us.

WordPress is a great platform that allows you to stay in control of your website and costs. Let us know in the comments below what your reasons are for using WordPress, or get in touch if you’re interested in our WordPress web design and development services.

Amazing service in producing some high quality product photographs. The team were great in making some sample images which we could refine prior to the final set being taken. The photographs were exactly what we wanted and were sent to us expeditiously to meet our project plan deadlines. I very highly recommend
