What is Wordpress?
WordPress is an open source, content management system (CMS), that is currently used by over 35% of all websites on the internet.
When something is referred to as open source, this means that the code is made available for free.
A content management system or CMS is an online software application that allows users to create and edit content without needing to use code.
WordPress includes a powerful and easy to use back end system that uses a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor making handling content very easy to integrate in business processes.
If you run a business that promotes products or services for hire, incorporates a digital strategy that is content heavy, and requires an easy to use interface that staff can easily utilise for growth, than WordPress could be the right choice for your next website.
When do we recommend using Wordpress?
WordPress isn’t the best for all businesses, but it’s a great choice for a lot. This is probably the main reason why over 35% of businesses that are already online are using WordPress. WordPress, when used correctly, will provide you with a very fast website, our website for example has excellent page load speed and is built entirely with WordPress. Because WordPress is open source, you do gain access to a comprehensive plugin library. Plugins are useful for businesses that don’t have the budget to invest in regular support and maintenance for their website. Rather then having custom solutions built for security or marketing efforts, you will be able to download and install existing solutions that are either free or very cost effective. This is not the best way to run your digital presence, but it can help you in the short term while you grow your digital budget.
If you are running an eCommerce business, you could use WordPress, however we would recommend you use Shopify in that case. Shopify was built for eCommerce where WordPress relies on a plugin called WooCommerce to handle this kind of business. It’s effective, but it’s not the best solution. If your business has the budget to do so, we recommend having a website built with React, and using WordPress as a headless CMS. That gives you the best of both worlds, the power and flexibility of React, combined with the easy content management system that is WordPress.
