What is WordPress?
WordPress is an open-sourced web platform, blogging tool and content management system (CMS) which has enabled web developers to build thousands of plugins and beautiful website themes to choose from. This allows us to make your website mobile responsive, functional and robust. As a matter of fact, it is quickly becoming one of the most popular website development platforms, with over 70,000,000 websites and counting.
WordPress Themes vs Custom Websites
While many web designers and developers will tell you to avoid WordPress themes because it isn’t custom HTML, this is often an excuse to charge an exorbitant amount for your website only to get similar results. Unless you need a complex e-commerce website, in most cases it isn’t necessary to have your website custom coded.
Because the WordPress platform is opened sourced, many web developers have created thousands of themes options to choose from. Thus, giving us the ability to create very appealing and functional websites, without the hours of coding that a custom website would require. As a result, we can make our websites affordable, while still elegantly representing your brand and business.
These WordPress plugins range from simple contact forms to full-on E-commerce plugins like WooCommerce which allow you to sell products on your website. One of the most common plugins we use is Yoast SEO because of its ability to help us structure your website for ranking on search engines.
