Your business needs a website and an online presence, that isn’t up for discussion in today’s digital world. As a non-technical business owner looking to set up this online presence there is a wealth of different available options open to you from DIY website builders like Squarespace & WIx, to simply hitting up your closest website developer and using whatever platform they prefer or even trying out one of the hundreds of different CMS platforms around yourself. I’m here today to give you X reasons why your business should choose WordPress!
- 22% of all websites use WordPress – This is an astounding statistic given the sheer volume of websites in existence (current estimates are around 1 billion). Further to this statistic, 61% of websites running a known content management system were using WordPress. What does this mean for you as a business owner? It means that WordPress is a tried and tested platform with plenty of users. If WordPress is good enough for high profile businesses like BBC America, Ford, Startup Weekend, The New York Times and even Perth Zoo then it’s good enough for your business
- WordPress has an amazing support ecosystem – While not immediately important when you get your website developed it comes into it’s own when you either want to make small changes to your website or you want to change developers. On a small or even private platform it’s likely going to be very expensive to get someone else to work on it, with WordPress you have the luxury of being able to find support yourself through thousands of online resources or finding the right developer to solve your problems on your budget.
- Google loves WordPress – It’s well known within the web space that some of the key things Google looks for in a website like logical architecture, meta information & SEO keywords and blogs are all done extremely well by WordPress making it a great framework for a successful website.
- Dynamic & Flexible – Your business is unique and has unique requirements. To match that WordPress can be made to do just about anything you could possibly desire from E-Commerce to Booking/Ticketing Systems to any other complex system your business requires.
