18 Feb It’s 2015, and WordPress Still Reigns Supreme | Southwest Florida Marketing
What’s the premier platform for websites and content management?
Even in 2015, the answer is still very clear: WordPress.
Many of our Southwest Florida marketing clients have websites that are built on the WordPress platform, for a variety of reasons. If you’ve been wondering about what platform you should use, or have been thinking about getting a website but haven’t decided on a provider or a platform, this blog post is for you.
Here, we’ll talk about how WordPress is still the standard for websites and content management in today’s marketing world.
WordPress Has Become Universal
One of the biggest reasons why WP is the go-to resource is simple: it’s everywhere.
Most designers and developers have used WP in some form or fashion. Many websites are built on WP or have WP elements incorporated into them. People are familiar with them, and are also familiar with using them to post blogs and other pieces of content.
This saves you from running into trouble years down the road when your platform is obsolete and you need help updating it or incorporating the latest hot technology into your website – only to find that you’re out of luck.
WordPress Is Easy
This is one of the biggest reasons to use this platform for your website: it’s easy.
For our Southwest Florida marketing campaigns, we use WP heavily when it comes to blogging. Creating and optimizing blogs is a cinch; it doesn’t take hardly anything at all to post to the blog and then distribute it as needed.
Designing and developing for WP is easy, too, so having design work or developmental work done on your website from a designer won’t be nearly as complicated (read: expensive).
WordPress Is Versatile
Finally, there are very few things you can’t do with a WordPress website, and that short list is shrinking annually.
The list of plugins available for WP is staggering, and more are being developed all the time. You can add virtually any capability, from advanced sharing features to social media plugins and ecommerce features – really, anything you need.
Few platforms have the widespread versatility of WP. Using WP for plugins is kind of like turning to the iPhone for apps: you’ll have the industry’s widest selection.
For your Southwest Florida marketing campaign, consider using WordPress.
