Our website is built on WordPress and we build most of our client websites on WordPress; we do this as we strongly believe that WordPress it is perfect for the small to medium sized business, but why?

No. 1 – The world’s most widely used website system for businesses

No. 2 – Easy to use

You do not need to have any coding experience to use WordPress, if you can use Microsoft Word you can use WordPress.

You are no longer tied to your web designer and having to pay them £50+ to make small changes to the words on your web pages – it’s really easy to make text changes and do it yourself; see the interface below:

No. 3 – Low cost

WordPress can be downloaded for free, and theme templates are also available from free to only a few dollars.

So you can do this yourself, but to be honest most business owners do not have the time or inclination to do this; if you pay web developer to do this for you prices start from about £450.

No.4 – You are not tied to a web design company

We have come across numerous businesses that are tied to their web design company, either because that web designer has a bespoke system on which the website is built, or the coding of the website is so complex it would be very difficult to move to another developer.

This is no longer the case with a WordPress website; there are thousands of specialist WordPress developers around the world, so if you want to move web designer you can.

No. 5 – Lots of options for how your website looks

For the graphic design of your website you can keep the costs down by downloading one of thousands of available theme templates; these look fantastic and customisation options mean your website never look the same as someone else’s.

Alternatively if you want a completely bespoke website this is possible, though you will need to pay a web developer to do this for you.

Finally if you change your mind over the design of your site and want something new, gone are the days of having your whole website re-built; now all you need is a new theme and all the existing pages remain.

No. 6 – Easy to add lots of functionality

You don’t need to pay a developer hundreds or thousands of pounds to add an image slider to your home page, or a form to your contact us page; there are now thousands of simple to install ‘Plugins’ that will do this for you.

The worldwide developer community has created lots of things called ‘plugins’ for WordPress; in essence these are just small computer programs that add functionality to your website; and the great thing is that you need zero coding knowledge to be able to install them and add great functionality to your WordPress site.

See our websites image slider plugin below – this is really easy to use.
