When we talk about choosing the right platform in the beginning – we always recommend WordPress… But why do we love it so much?
1. It’s SOOO easy to use
We are firm believers that technology should not impede you – but make you more productive. Often times, unfortunately, this is not the case. With WordPress everything is easy. Once you’ve passed the extremely short learning curve you are ready to roll.
2. It’s already optimized
Out of the box WordPress is optimized for high quality content delivery and search engine optimization. That’s two things you won’t have to do after it is installed.
3. There’s a vast community
If there is something you want to do with your WordPress site – chances are someone else has created a plugin for it. The same goes with the WordPress theme community – there are thousands of free themes to choose from.
4. It integrates with everything
It allows you to easily integrate and use it with different services – ranging from Facebook to Twitter and everything in betweetn. Between plugins and web apps everyone has recognized the market power of WordPress and offers integration options with it.
5. There is a vast pool of developers
If you ever run into troubles with WordPress – there is a huge pool of talent out there. Often times they’ll answer your question for free if you post it on Twitter. If it’s more complicated – there are so many freelance WordPress developers out there that you can hire to help. The great thing is the freelancer won’t have to learn anything new (like they would with proprietary software) – so they can get the work done very fast…
