There’s a common misconception that you need to be coder to have a great website. WordPress is a content management system where updates and changes can be made easily, all without any coding experience. Some of the largest companies in the country use WordPress to power their website including MTV, TechCrunch, Bloomberg, and Disney (WPBeginner).
We use WordPress for our client websites because it’s simple, easy-to-use. Our clients love how they’re able to login to the website and make whatever changes they see fit (Even though we suggest against that). Here are a few benefits of using WordPress for your website needs:
Manage Your Own Content
You have the power to manage and modify content in WordPress with a few clicks. You can use WordPress to update content on a page, create a new blog post, change the display date on posts, add images to a media library, and manage the administrators and editors on your site all from one powerful place! You even can enable comment moderation on any page where comments are allowed.
The Use of Plugins
WordPress is home to thousands of custom plugins which provide everything you need to build your business online. If you want a working e-commerce website, the WooCommerce plugin is one of the best to choose from for that purpose. SEO? Not a problem! The premium Yoast SEO plugin is loaded with features to make optimizing your website a walk in the park. Instead of having to hire a team of programmers to add these features for you, these plugins give you greater control over your business website with less of the costs.
Responsive web design has grown in popularity in recent years as the number of people using phones for internet use has exploded. WordPress has many themes designed to work across all devices and web browsers. We personally love using Divi Builder by Elegant Themes because there are features built in to help us make our client websites completely responsive.
With the right team, a website built on WordPress can be as secure as if it were built on any other platform. Compared to our competitors, our approach to building your site on WordPress is different than what you might expect. We integrate secure hosting and protection services from CloudFlare, Sitelock, and use ManageWP for regular website backups and maintenance.
Search Engine Optimization
WordPress is one of the cleanest options out there for developing the search engine optimization on your website. You can tell Google not to index your website and peruse the robots.txt file with just a few clicks. The Yoast SEO plugin helps you optimize website content for readability and keywords. With this plugin, you have full control over your meta tags, title tags, and meta descriptions which show in Google’s search results.
