Why Wordpress? Is it Good for your client?
There are many CMS options nowadays so why would you choose WordPress instead of any other technology? Well, this is a trick question, below I will list a few advantages of this technology that would make you believe that it is the right one for you.
- WordPress was developed for non-tech savvy bloggers and because of that, most of the UI components are easy to use.
- WordPress is capable of running on anything from cheap shared hosting to high-end servers, and can be used to create projects of all sizes. From single blogs to entire website networks, there is almost nothing the platform can’t do.
- The client can have a website the way that he/she wants, practically anything is possible. Business websites, portfolios, online shops, membership sites and much more.
- WordPress is free to install, deploy, and upgrade. Thousands of plugins and templates power a flexible and simple interface, which reduces development costs and deployment time.
The reason why WordPress is such an ideal candidate is because there are thousands of free templates (themes) to choose from, so you can give your website any look you want. There is a WordPress theme for just about everything. Whether you want a photography theme, magazine theme, portfolio theme, or an eCommerce theme.
WordPress is SEO friendly, and you can make it even more SEO friendly by using WP SEO plugins.
In other words, the most insecure element of WordPress is its users. If you adapt simple security processes, you will have a great final product.
