There are lots of reasons why your company will benefit from using WordPress to power your organisations’ website. This blog post highlights why we use the platform for our clients and how it can benefit your business.

1. No expensive licence fees

WordPress is open-source: there are no license fees and all software updates are free for life! It’s maintained by the WordPress community so everyone chips in to make it the best website platform out there (in our opinion!) :)

2. No agency ties!

You will never be tied into long contracts and you can change suppliers with ease. If I get hit by a bus tomorrow, just Google “WordPress Design Agency” or “WordPress developer” and you’ll find someone to help you out.

3. You own your website data

Your data will never be locked in a supplier’s propriety system. You own all of your data and can walk away with it anytime you want with zero charges for exporting it!

4. Advanced user roles

WordPress supports lots of different user roles from the main super admin to general admin, editor, author and contributor roles, WordPress caters for all levels of users to give your staff and site users.

5. A clean and user-friendly interface

WordPress is so popular because it’s so easy to use. There’s also a minimal learning curve so your staff training costs are minimal too – on top of it, chances are your employees have worked with WordPress before so they will be able to use your website with no training whatsoever! We can offer WordPress training and support if required.

6. A powerful tool for content marketing

WordPress is a tool of choice for marketers and publishers. It has built-in state of the art publishing tools such as preview, schedule a post, revisions and much more that will make the life of your editorial team so much easier!
