Popular – Around 76 million WordPress websites out there.
WordPress is entirely open-source and powers around 76 million websites across the world.
This isn’t just blogs and small websites though! WordPress is used by many of the world’s leading brands: Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Mercedes Benz, The Dallas Mavericks and Sony Music to name a few.
Virtually every modern creative or digital agency has adopted the platform, with some even building their business around it!
Easy to use and customise.
WordPress is growing fast and one of the main reason is it’s easy to use for the end user.
There are inbuilt facilities for blog publishing, user management, comments, RSS feeds, revisions and possibilities for custom modules are endless; eCommerce, sign-up forms, download areas, photo galleries etc.
Each of these modules has an easy-to-use, user-friendly interface in the backend, making it extremely simple for a website owner to update their content without having to call on a developer each time.
Responsive – Mobile and Tablet friendly.
Its dynamic nature means once you’re using WordPress, you’ll never need to move your website again.
If you assume all your customers are visiting your website from a desktop computer, think again. Mobile website usage is exploding. If your site doesn’t look great and work well on a smartphone or tablet, your customers may leave your site and go somewhere else.
Most WordPress themes (both premium or custom-made) are designed to be responsive (mobile-friendly), meaning your customers won’t face any difficulties using your website on their touch screen devices.
The WordPress dashboard is designed to work on smartphones as well as desktop computers — so you can easily manage your website on the go.
