What are the benefits of WordPress
WordPress is a content management system that began as a blogging tool. It soon evolved into the industry standard for content management for many business owners. In fact 20% of hosted websites are WordPress sites. Blogs are recommended as an integral part of your overall marketing plan and WordPress perfectly caters to this requirement. Though a blog will certainly help your SEO results, WordPress has moved past its humble origins and can now be used primarily as your face on the web.
The look of WordPress sites is no different to many custom sites on the web. And, with endless theme choices and a developer to help you customise your choice of theme, you can achieve a unique design for your business.
Generally WordPress sites are a lot quicker to set up than a full custom designs. This also saves you money in development costs.
