Many business owners find themselves in a quandary over which platform to use for their business website. There is no shortage of options on the market, from Squarespace and Wix to newcomers like Simvoly and uKit. And then of course, there is the almighty open source platform, WordPress. While all of the above bill themselves as easy to use CMS (Content Management Systems), no two platforms are created equal. While today’s site builders do not necessarily require tech wizardry, there is a learning curve to each platform and some are more flexible and intuitive then others.
Here’s three simple reasons why WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world.
- WordPress is a free platform that comes with no strings attached. You can take your website and go home if you aren’t happy with the web hosting customer service. With all of the other choice you will have to start from scratch with a company change.
- The WordPress developer knowledge breadth is vast. Whether you are searching for a DYI tutorial or seeking a developer to do the work, all one needs to do is ask Siri.
- The design flexibility and plugin functionality available to WordPress is endless. Whatever the need, be it a login protected area, a bidding platform or registration functionality, WordPress has a plugin to accomplish it all.
