If you have been looking into getting a new website recently, it is quite likely you would have heard about WordPress.  Wordpress is what we recommend. WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that allows users to publish, edit and modify content as well as generally maintain a website.  There are many content management systems to choose from, but many people swear by WordPress. Why you ask?

It’s FREE!

WordPress is an open source system. Meaning that you do not have to pay for it, and you are welcome to customise it as you wish. There are many other paid content management systems out there that charge you either just to use the system, or depending on how big your website is. Even most of the paid CMS solutions do not even compare to WordPress, so it’s a no brainer.

Easy To Set Up

Setting up a content management system can seem like a daunting task, and many other CMS’s are quite cumbersome to set up. But not WordPress!  The WordPress install only takes 5 minutes and requires no expert knowledge of how a website or server works.

Easy To Use

The intuitive, user-friendly admin system of WordPress has made it the number one choice for website owners. WordPress has been designed to be extremely easy to use, and for the less tech savvy people out there it is far easier to get on with compared to other CMS’s. Another handy feature is the copy and paste from Microsoft Word tool that keeps any formatting you have created within your Word document. So if you can use Word, you can use WordPress. WordPress is highly customisable with different themes and widgets, you do not have to have any coding experience at all!

Google Loves WordPress

Many people rely on search engine optimisation (SEO) to gain new customers or clients. This is an essential requirement for many of our clients. If your website is well structured, it is more likely to reach a higher position in the search engine results. WordPress structures websites exactly the way Google wants to see them. Google’s Matt Cutts has even said “WordPress is a great choice”.
