Benefits of Using WordPress as a CMS

Posted on April 5, 2014 · Posted in WordPress

WordPress has been around since 2003 and is the most popular blogging software on the market. Over the last few years, WordPress has also become the content management software (CMS) of choice for non-blogging websites.

Here are the top reasons why WordPress is so popular and why you might want to consider switching to a WordPress platform for your company’s website.

1. IT’S COST EFFECTIVE

Using WordPress as a CMS for your website means it’s very cost effective. WordPress itself is free, and a custom template designed by doesn’t cost the earth.

2. IT’S SIMPLE TO USE

If you’ve got any computer savvy, WordPress is easy to use. If you can send an e-mail, use Microsoft Word or set up a Facebook account, then you can use WordPress. And normal use doesn’t run the risk of mucking up the design. It’s website creation for non-techies.

3. YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF

With WordPress you enter the Do-It-Yourself world. You don’t need to ask us to fix a tiny error, saving you time and money.

4. MANY USERS, MANY PLACES

WordPress is online and offers multiple users, which means you’re not the only one who can fix something in a pinch and you can access it from anywhere. Which means if you’ve got Internet access in Tahiti, you could work from there. That also means your important site is backed up on a secure server with multiple redundancies, not some high school kid’s laptop.

5. CLIMB THE SEARCH RESULTS

WordPress also makes it easier to optimize your search engine results. That means your site is more likely to land on the first page of Google results, which means people are more likely to find you.
