At Onsharp, we’re all about creating beautiful websites that are easy to manage. We understand that employees at small businesses tend to wear many important hats, and relying on a developer to make updates on their website can create a staggering bottleneck. They need a system that allows them to be light and nimble on their feet when it comes to making updates.
To bring this necessary ease of access to our clients, we’re building our websites on WordPress or Umbraco. For today, we’re focusing on WordPress and why it’s one of our favorite content management systems (CMS). Read on to find out why WordPress is so highly preferred by #TeamOnsharp to create websites.
#1: It's easy to use.
We know our clients have a lot on their plate. Adding blog posts or updating website content does not have to be on that list when your website runs on WordPress. It has a quick and intuitive user interface, which means you’ll spend less time formatting content, leaving more time to drive your business.
#2: Plugins add functionality and flexibility.
There are over 55,000 plugins available on WordPress. The best part? The majority of them are FREE! Plugins can help you with anything from integrating social content to improving your website’s search engine optimization to collecting leads and distributing them to the appropriate contact within your business.
#3: It's search engine friendly.
WordPress was created to cater to standard compliance with high quality code and semantic markup. Because of this, search engines love WordPress sites. Beyond its original SEO dynamo, you can also install the Yoast SEO plugin to optimize titles, meta tags, sitemaps, and more to boost your search rankings.
#4: It allows multiple users.
Depending on the needs of your business, you can create multiple users with varying levels of access. This will help you streamline everything that’s happening on your website. All the right players are brought to the table with access to as much or as little as they need.
#5: It's free.
We’re committed to finishing our clients’ websites on time and on budget. Avoiding ongoing licensing costs allows you to allocate budget elsewhere, focusing on key places that will move the needle for your business.
We’re proud to work with many of our clients to help manage and maintain their websites. If a WordPress website is just the solution that your business needs, let’s get in touch! We’d love to learn more about your business and how we can collectively achieve your goals.
