Benefits of using WordPress for your Business Website

WordPress was first released on May 27, 2003. In almost 20 years, WordPress has become the most popular CMS (Content Management System) – with an estimated 75 Million websites on the web today. In fact, as of January, 2021, 39.5% of all websites are WordPress websites. Listed below are the 8 rock-solid reasons why WordPress is so popular and why you should consider a WordPress site for your business.

  1. Ease of Use

WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface.  Depending on the template and page builder being used, adding new pages, BLOG posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done quickly.  Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is significantly reduced.

  1. No HTML Editing or FTP Software Required

WordPress is a self-contained system and does not require html editing software. You can create a new page or blog post, format text, upload images, upload documents, video files, image galleries, etc. all without the need for additional html or ftp software.

  1. Google Love’s WordPress Sites

The code behind WordPress is very clean and simple, making it easy for search engines, and especially Google, to read and index a site’s content. In addition, each page, post, and image can have its own meta tag keywords, description, and title, and be optimized for specific keywords, allowing for very precise search engine optimization.

  1. Your WordPress Website is 100% Customizable

WordPress acts as the engine for your website. The look and feel of the site can be 100% customized so your brand can shine through on your site and provide a unique experience to your visitors.

  1. A BLOG Feature is built-in and Ready-to-Go

Since WordPress was originally created as a blogging platform, blogging capabilities are built-in and are easy to integrate, if desired.

  1. Extend the Functionality of Your Site with Plugins

Want to add an event calendar, video gallery, Twitter Feed, Facebook Fan Box, and more to your site? WordPress makes this possible with plugins. Today, there are over 54,000 plugins available for WordPress, many of which are free – but the premium plugins are very reasonably priced.

  1. WordPress is Scalable – Grow as Your Website as Your Business Grows

WordPress sites are very scalable. You can have hundreds of thousands of pages or blog posts on your site and the performance of the site will not be compromised in the least.

  1. WordPress Keeps Evolving

The final major benefit of using WordPress is that it keeps growing and evolving. And when it does, you get all of the new features for free. WordPress updates and patches are FREE of charge.

See what some of our customers say about us!

  • We have had the great pleasure of working with Mike McLeland for a number of years now. The quality of our website is fabulous. The true test is of course, does it make the potential clients want to take the time to inquire about our services? It absolutely does this. He created it so that it is easy for that potential client to decide quickly and with ease that they want to know more about us and our services. This is rare because a lot of websites in our industry in particular are extremely hard to move around once you have arrived.Additionally, Mike has a rare quality as a Web Designer. He understands who he can send an email filled with technical terms to and who he shouldn’t. The owner of our company receives the technical emails and I get the total opposite. This makes it so much easier for us to work with him.Lastly, his level of care is, ” Off the Charts!” There I no other way to describe it.I hope a lot of other businesses use his services.

  • Working with Mike and North Texas Web Design was a great experience. They were able to create my website with the exact same graphic design and requirements I gave them, and it only took them a couple of days. I appreciate the professionalism and the wiliness to listen to my picky demands. My website looks just the way I envision it. I look forward to continue this relationship for future updates. I’m also happy to give some great references to a couple of my buddies for their websites.
