Counteracting WordPress Misconceptions

Call us today at 217-528-9803 or email and talk to a content management expert about creating or updating your WordPress website.

Building your website on a CMS provides the following advantages:

  • Many content management systems can be designed with “out of the box” themes to provide professional, attractive, mobile responsive layouts inexpensively.
  • Easier and faster to change or add new content without detailed technical knowledge. A site that is maintained with current content is important in attracting repeat visitors and maintaining search engine credibility.
  • Time-consuming content updates and site content expansions could still be outsourced if desired.

WordPress-specific advantages include:

  • The ability to quickly and easily add new content areas and menu links.
  • Provides extensive interactive functionality “out of the box” to meet client needs at a reasonable cost, for example, the ability to feature content on the homepage or a sidebar with links to the full article.
  • We have experience in building and maintaining websites in a variety of other content management systems, and WordPress is by far the easiest and fastest to learn.
  • With a wide variety of well-tested and supported “plugins”, additional functionality can be easily and economically added as needed.  Many of the WordPress add-ons are free, and some have “pro / paid” versions that further extend the functionality of the free version.  Event Calendars, Membership, Backups, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), all types of display options, etc. are available.  WordPress provides resources to evaluate plugins, and we carefully evaluate the ones we use for security, resource usage and availability of support before using them on client websites.
  • WordPress can be used “as is” out of the box to create a website quickly and cost-effectively and it can be extensively customized – both design-wise and functionality-wise to provide the exact solution needed.
  • You can use your own domain name, and the ability to manage your search engine optimization (SEO) is built-in plus the ability to quickly expand SEO options with top-quality SEO plugins.
  • Hosted on your own or on commonly-available and inexpensive shared hosting for complete control over your website.  Move it anywhere; obtain technical expertise from any competent WordPress developer.  You aren’t locked in to a proprietary system with ongoing upgrade charges that you can’t move elsewhere.
  • WordPress expertise is common among web developers, and it is relatively easy to install and upgrade.
  • WordPress is open source software with a large and dedicated developer community.  Should a vulnerability be found in WordPress, it is patched, available and communicated very quickly – typically by the next day.
  • WordPress is actively updated based on the needs of hundreds of thousands of WordPress website owners worldwide, with several major upgrades a year, hundreds of conferences world-wide, and extensive documentation.
  • There is an enormous amount of WordPress help content on the Internet that explains how to customize, extend, and use WordPress more effectively for all kinds of businesses and organizations.  In addition, WordPress conferences are held regularly and are an inexpensive & great way to connect with users, developers and content creators who use the CMS.
