1) Introduction

If you’ve stumbled across this article or found it while browsing through our other blogs, you’ve probably heard of WordPress, used it yourself or have browsed on a WordPress site in the past. WordPress is one of the most popular open-source content management systems (CMS) out there – its accessibility, affordability and functionality make it a favorite for experts and novices alike. Let’s dive into the top 5 reasons you should use WordPress for your website.

2) Our Favorite Reasons To Use WordPress

  1. WordPress is simple to use
    • WordPress is exceptionally simple and easy to use – even for those who aren’t all that used to website design/development. You don’t have to be a Digital Marketing expert to take advantage of this platform! With WordPress you don’t need any coding skills or experience and can easily browse through their various themes, drop in your relevant information and get the ball rolling!
  2. WP Features 1000s of Website Designs
    • One of the reasons we love WP is the host of themes and designs they have! WordPress makes website design so much easier with their selection of themes with customized widgets and other design elements allowing you to make your website into the perfect fit for your business and brand. The real kicker is that a majority of themes and customizations are totally free and easy to use! However we personally think that the splurge on premium is worth it since it really lets you fine-tune your site.
  3. WP Offers Continual Support
    • The WordPress community is made up of millions of technicians and tech-savvy volunteers who are there with a helping hand! These wonderful people act as support for WP users and offer free assistance and guidance through a host of forums and blogs. All you need to do is submit/post your question on your preferred forum or blog and you’ll see a quick response and fast help come your way!
  4. WP Is Secure
    • One of the main reasons for WordPress’ popularity and one of the reasons we love it is that it is one of the most secure CMS out there. Other CMS do not offer the same level of security and protection as WordPress. Now hackers and scammers will always be lurking in the corners of the internet but WordPress does offer some defense against them – for instance you can control the number of login attempts for any IP address that tries to log into your site, so if a hacker tries guessing your details and password 5 times you can make sure that their IP address is blocked from ever logging in again after that 5th attempt.
  5. WP is SEO Friendly
    • By now we all know how important SEO is to a business, for engagement and visibility. And a little secret from a digital marketer – WordPress is favored by Google and other search engines because it was originally developed using standard compliance which results in semantic markup.
