Why We Use WordPress
WordPress powers over 16.7% of the web, is used on over 54 million sites. It is the most popular content management system with 54.4% market share.
WordPress Is Open Source (Free!)
Instead of having 6 developers supporting your website, you have got over 10,000 developers who are part of a community working to constantly improve the product. You are not going to be stuck with a CMS that only one company can use
WordPress Is Flexible and Extendable
Flexibility allows us to build sites faster, meaning more of your budget is focused on design and user experience rather than programming and debugging. The community has made it extendable, meaning that everything you can think of has already been built, which speeds up development.
WordPress Is Easy To Use
As a CMS WordPress is super-simple, intuitive and elegant to use, but is also robust. We provide professional video tutorials which will allow you update the site yourself in hours.
WordPress Is Here To Stay
Microsoft recently decided to stop development on its own blogging platform and move its 30 million users over to using WordPress.
We’re Exceptional At It
We’ve been building websites from donkey’s years (Steve for almost 20) and we’ve developed hundreds of custom content management systems, this means we’re experienced and we use this experience to customise your WordPress experience.
It is FREE! This point cannot be stressed enough. WordPress is free and it always will be. It can also be hosted cheaply as well.
Any Developer Can Work On The Site Because It Is Open Source
Often our client’s biggest fear is that they will choose a company to build them a website, and be held to ransom in the future for updates and changes they make to the site. We have lost count of the number of horror stories we have heard along these lines.
With FX Digital:
- Our Clients are reassured that if our company disappears (we’ve been around a long time and plan on staying around), charges them exorbitant prices, or you simply do not agree on the direction, they can break with your company.
- Because we tell our clients this, we also show ourselves to be confident that we will deliver what you the client wants, which again reassures them.
We know that most of our competitors are not the ones using Joomla or Drupal, they are the ones who are using a proprietary content management system, which often locks a client into a contract, which means that one the website is built, it has to stay with that company and their proprietary content management system. This point cannot be stressed enough.
Leverage The Huge Community
This feeds on from the last point. WordPress has a massive community of developers and users. This means that virtually everything you can think of has already been built for WordPress. It is very rare to have things be developed from scratch, which keeps the costs down. There are literally thousands of plugins out there. Our Clients are reassured by this and come to us because of this.
WordPress Is Here To Stay
There are over 54 million WordPress sites out there, and it is used by The New York Times, Ford, CNN and even the UK Prime Minister. This is not a bleeding edge technology that will have disappeared in 6 months’ time. The large community means it is here to stay and will constantly be improved.
It Is Really Simple To Use
With our fully customised backend admin areas, complete with hours and hours of video tutorials, all backed up by our support ticketing system it really is easy to use and easy to get support with.
I’ve been building Websites since 1994 and over the years, I’ve built hundreds of websites from scratch complete with custom backend areas and I know that this can often be seen as the best solution, but it isn’t I know, not just because of the reasons outlined above but simply because it allows customers much greater flexibility and they get more bang for their buck.
