Websites that allow you to change the content yourself
There are over 810 million WordPress installations currently in operation, around 43% of all websites. Its rise in popularity is mainly due to the content management system (CMS) that drives it, the flexibility it gives and all the extras that plugin to its core system. The CMS is simple to use for basic sites and only becomes more complicated when you require more from your website. The plugins range from fully fledged ecommerce and membership systems to simple items like connecting up to your email marketing provider.
To your audience a WordPress website looks just like any other website. They can be made using responsive web design techniques so are up to date in terms of design, functionality and usability. With the right designer you also get great looking, professional web design that reassures customers of your brand.
There are a few aspects to consider when deciding to use a content managed system. The primary one is do I need it. If you are only going to make a few changes a year then it maybe more cost effective to consider a traditional responsive web design route. Other factors to take in to account are do I have the time and resources in house to make the changes. You should also consider if your company has the skills to keep your brands online presence looking professional.
Having the option of flexibility is generally what drives most of our clients to opt for a WordPress website, even though they let us manage most of the updates. It gives them the ability to make small edits if they wish and let us do the major changes.
