You may have a new or existing business and are realizing that its time for you to either create or upgrade your existing website. I’m sure you have heard about WordPress on more then one occasion. So, what is all the hype about?
Why would a developer build with WordPress as a part of their website design service?
WordPress is open-source (meaning its free to use)
Unlike squarespace, wix and weebly, you do not have to pay monthly to use WordPress. Anyone can download it and use it free. What is better than that? If you use WordPress as your website design service, your only yearly fees will be your hosting and domain name.
The possibilities are endless
WordPress was originally developed as a way to easily create blogs, but it has drastically changed and evolved over the years. While it is still the cleanest and easiest way to set up a blog, you can also use WordPress as your website design service for business websites, portfolios, Ecommerce, eLearning, job boards and more.
WordPress is easy to learn and use
This is a big one for most of my clients. I often get asked, “will I be able to make changes after the website complete?” Yes. Absolutely! I will even teach you how to do so. WordPress is an interface that can be easily learned by anyone, any age. Simple text and image changes can be done with ease.
