WordPress is here to stay

According to W3Techs, WordPress is used by 43% of all websites on the internet.  This means that WordPress powers over 835 million websites, and its usage continues to increase year-on-year.  Due to its massive market share, WordPress’s popularity is likely to continue to grow in the future, as it becomes increasingly easy to use and more widely supported. 

Some of the world’s biggest companies, brands and celebrities have chosen WordPress as their platform of choice. eBay and UPS, two of the most well-known Fortune 500 companies, are just two of many that rely on WordPress to power their websites. Other notable names include Walt Disney, Best Buy, Vogue, Time, CNN, and Glad Trash Bags.

We feel it is a platform that will be around for a long time, making it a solid platform for our clients.

Easy Interface and drag-and-drop page editor

Are you worried about not being able to update your own website after it has been designed? WordPress has a built-in code editor and comes many page editor plugin option to help users edit their site in whatever way they need. The simple user interface makes creating pages quick and easy, even for those who lack coding experience. To make it even easier for our clients, we use the Elementor Page Editor when possible. Elementor combines drag-and-drop features with live editing capabilities to customize your website in an efficient and intuitive way. You don’t need any coding skills to edit your website: everything is clearly labeled and easy to understand, making it accessible for all levels of users. It provides amazing customization options while being incredibly user-friendly.

Scalability without extra costs

WordPress is a cost-effective solution for small, medium and large businesses. WordPress is known for its scalability – so as businesses grow their online presence, WordPress can support this growth without any issues or additional costs. WordPress is an open-source platform, which means it is free to install and use. There are some other costs like design, hosting and maintaining the site but compared to other solutions you don’t pay a monthly fee for adding features or pages. You can have a large e-commerce site for the same monthly fee as a blog.

Customization Options: A Major Benefit

One of the major benefits of using WordPress over other web design platforms is the ability to customize almost any element on your website. From menus, fonts, colors, page templates, layouts and more – all of it can be adjusted and completely customized.

Functionality and Feature Rich

WordPress also includes various tools for customizing functions such as user experience optimization, search engine optimization (SEO), and integration with other popular software programs like Google Analytics. This enables users to create websites that are not only visually appealing but also highly functional for their target audience.

Importance of SEO

Many people overlook the importance of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) when thinking about a website. SEO involves optimizing your website’s content and structure so that it appears higher up in search engine rankings. This is called ‘organic’ ranking because you don’t pay Google anything for this. Good SEO increases the chances of people finding your website and ultimately leads to more visitors, more conversions, and more sales. WordPress offers many features that can help boost a website’s SEO ranking such as optimized HTML coding, built-in meta tags, and custom permalinks that make URLs easier to find in search results. Additionally, there are numerous plugins available for further optimization of content like titles and descriptions which are key elements for SEO success.

Flexibility and Future-Proof

Many businesses are looking for a web platform that has easy scalability and customization options in case their needs change down the road. Here are just some of the reasons why we think WordPress is future-proof: WordPress’ open source nature means users have access to an ever-growing library of both free and premium plugins and themes. The constantly expanding library also ensures that WordPress remains compatible with all the latest technology trends so users can keep their website up to date without having to worry about redesigning in years to come. With its vast selection of themes, powerful plugins, and responsive designs, there’s no limit to what you can do with this platform – from small personal sites to large e-commerce stores.

Security & Backups

Website security and backups are essential for any website. Without the proper protection, a website can be vulnerable to malicious attacks and viruses, leading to data loss and downtime that can cost businesses time and money. WordPress provides a variety of built-in tools that allow users to prevent unauthorized access while keeping their data safe from hackers. Additionally, WordPress offers automatic backups via a security plugin, so website owners can seamlessly restore their content if it ever gets corrupted or deleted. By utilizing these powerful tools, WordPress ensures that businesses have peace of mind knowing their websites are secure and backed up in case anything goes wrong.

Conclusion: The best platform for most businesses

WordPress has been proven to be one of the most successful content management systems in the world, with millions of websites already running on it. WordPress offers unparalleled affordability, flexibility and scalability, making it ideal for any size business or personal website design project. Furthermore, its intuitive user interface ensures you can easily create and manage your site. This makes it great for those who are just getting started or simply don’t have much experience in web development. With its low cost options, reliable performance and wide range of features, WordPress is undoubtedly the best platform for creating beautiful websites quickly and easily.
