Businesses create websites to generate leads, increase their credibility among consumers, and deliver their marketing messages.
To attract the right customers, every business, regardless of its size, needs a website to reach out to them. While there are dozens of content management systems (CMS) out there, WordPress (WP) is considered by many to be the best. The reason for this is that other CMS’s simply lack the benefits that WordPress offers.
In fact, according to a recent blog post by Kinsta, WordPress now powers around 30-40% of the internet, with over 500 websites built using WordPress every day.
By using WordPress plugins to build your website, you can create just about any type of website. And with the right website development tools, you can easily design websites for a variety of purposes. The possibilities are virtually endless.
Below are a few other advantages:
1. Easy to install and set up
WordPress is well-known for its ease of installation. Under most circumstances, installing WordPress is a very simple process and takes less than five minutes to complete.
2. Easy-to-use, simple, and straight-forward
WordPress is a straightforward platform for your website that makes everything simple. We say this because you don’t need to know how to code, you won’t have to learn any complicated programs and best of all, you don’t need to call in an expert to use it!
3. Search Engine And SEO Friendly
From the outset, WordPress is very SEO-friendly. Once you install an SEO-friendly theme and take advantage of WordPress’ awesome SEO plugins, things will only get better.
4. Responsive Website Design
Themes for WordPress are all responsive, so you can’t go wrong there! Whichever theme you choose, you can always be sure that it will render beautifully on mobile devices, tablets, and computers.
5. Mobile Friendly
It is possible to optimise WordPress sites of all types to work efficiently on mobile devices using a variety of plugins and strategies.
6. Updates automatically on a regular basis
As part of an effort to improve security and simplify the update experience, WordPress 3.7 introduced automatic background updates. Automatic updates are enabled by default on most WP sites. Plugins and themes may also be automatically updated in some cases. By default, translation files are updated as well.
7. Easy, One-Click Updates
You can update WP in two ways – the easiest method is the one-click update, which works for most users. If it doesn’t work, or if you’d prefer to be more hands-on, you can follow the manual update process.
8. Intuitive Interface
According to a recent WP blog piece, “We’ve updated WordPress.com’s interface to make it more coherent and logical, allowing everyone to use it more intuitively. The update makes managing your entire site more intuitive and creates consistency across all parts of WordPress.com.”
9. Many Available Plugins
WPBeginner states that there are currently 58000+ plugins available to enhance or add functionality to your website.
10. Infinite Scalability
WordPress can be highly scalable when it has the right infrastructure, services, and resources. Tens of thousands of logged-in users can access the site at one time while millions of pages are accessed every month, page requests are processed immediately and search queries yield lightning-quick results.
Because of your website’s importance, it’s essential to choose the right company to create it for you.
