For many companies Word Press is still the best choice out there. Word Press is a very powerful CMS that has grown from simple blogs to very detailed websites. We use Word Press for many of our clients, in fact this site is running on Word Press. Here is why we recommend it:
- User-friendly: there is almost no learning-curve for WordPress, anybody can learn how to use it. If you can access your email and post on Facebook you will have little to no issues with Word Press. Note: Theme customization will require knowledge of html and css.
- Easy to update your website: WordPress is great for clients that often post new pictures or change content. Why pay a web designer to make every change on the site if you can do it yourself?
- Allows for accountability: since all users can have their own login, it is easy to keep track of who makes changes.
- Completely customizable: you can create a unique website just like you would with HTML or expensive designer software.
- It’s free!
