Here at Digital Config we have developed lots of websites using different CMS platforms. Some clients know what they want before speaking to us, as they may have had experience using a specific CMS platform in the past. Other clients have no idea what a CMS is which is one reason why they have come to talk to us.

Over the years we have created websites using Joomla, Drupal, Magento and a few more including WordPress. All these platforms have worked with a bit of tweaking as expected.

Today we are going to share with you 8 reasons why we at this moment would recommend WordPress as the solution for you and your business.

1. Ease Of Use

We have found over the years WordPress is the most favoured by clients that wish to update and maintain their website themselves. The reason we believe is that WordPress has an intuitive interface and is easy to use. Tasks such as adding pages, publishing new posts to your blog and adding images, is so simple to do and can be done quickly.

2. Update Your Website From Any Device

If you need to make changes to your website when on the move maybe on your mobile device this can be done. The framework WordPress is built on is responsive. This means the admin area will respond to the device it is viewed on making the task of updating your website on a mobile device a nice experience.

3. Full Control

You have control of most aspects. If you need to edit or update your website you can easily complete these updates yourself. Even if you get stuck do a quick search in Google someone somewhere would have had the same problem you are having. (97% Sure).

4. Blog

After installing WordPress, you are just a few steps away from creating your first blog post. More time would be needed to create the blog than publishing it! Really simple.

5. WordPress Community

As touched upon in benefit 3 (Full Control) Someone somewhere will be having or has had a problem that they could not figure out. With the WordPress community being so large & helpful, most of the time help is at hand from a vast amount of users & developers.

6. Users, Users, Users

For a company with more than 1 employee or director setting up uses for individuals working for you or with you, WordPress allows you to create users as many times as needed and it is also really easy to do. When setting up a user that you are the administrator of, you can decide what level of access they will need.

7. Growing Company, Growing Website

As your company grows so should your website. This could mean a number of different things. With Plugins and the huge amount out there, whatever your website may need to do in the future you can almost guarantee a plugin has been created to do just that.

8. Search Engine Optimisation

The team at WordPress who created the platform have done so, allowing search engines to crawl your website easily and figure out what it is you are trying to promote, offer or sell. Also, plugins can help you optimise your website to achieve better rankings in organic search results.
