If you are new to the world of websites, you have probably been researching some of your options for getting a company website up and running. Without a doubt, one of the most popular options in the digital world today is WordPress. Technically speaking, WordPress is a CMS – or Content Management System. Basically, this is a platform that takes care of many of the technical details of creating a website, so you can more easily load content and deliver it to your audience.
Many web design companies use WordPress because of the powerful features and endless flexibility that it provides. At Xcellent Digital, we are proud to create beautiful WordPress sites for our clients, so contact us if you would like to learn more.
If you are going to build your website with a content management system, you need to make sure that system is going to provide the flexibility you need to create something that will serve your company well for years. Unfortunately, some of the other CMS options on the market today come up short in the category of flexibility. This is where WordPress excels, and it is why so many web design companies make this their platform of choice.
Strength in Numbers
In addition to flexibility, there is something to be said for using the same software as so many other sites on the web. Here’s the thing – it’s easy to solve problems when working with WordPress, simply because it’s so easy to get help. You don’t have to look far to find someone with the knowledge necessary to help you work through a WordPress issue.
Also, since so many sites are run on WordPress, there are endless resources available to add on to your site. In WordPress, “plugins” can be used to add functionality of one kind or another to your site. The presence of so many plugins means you can add just about any kind of capability to your site without having to develop any custom software. This is a cost-effective way to run your site, since most plugins come with a modest price tag – and, in fact, many are free.
Easy to Use on the Backend
If you are going to work with a web design company for the creation of your site, you won’t need to worry too much about how easy it is to design a site on WordPress. However, you’ll probably want to be able to make changes to the site from time to time – like adding new products, updating your blog, etc. – and WordPress makes this easy. If you can use the internet and have basic computing skills, you’ll have no trouble with WordPress (after a short learning curve).
When you add up the entire package, choosing WordPress over other options is a simple decision. This is the best website platform available today, and we don’t think the competition is particularly close. By working with Xcellent Digital, you can get a quality WordPress site for your company that will represent your brand well for years to come.
