Why Use WordPress for Your Website?

Why Use WordPress for Your Website?

WordPress is widely known as the largest open source content management system worldwide. Used to create and manage more websites than any other system. In fact, as of January 2015, WordPress is used on a quarter of the top 10 million websites in the world! So the question is to be begged, why use anything else?

WordPress Website Design

Originally WordPress was created with it’s roots being designed for blogging. But now with it’s expansion and array of plugins that can be easily added in, it’s the number 1 choice for designing simple websites. The tool can be used to create large scale websites too. Companies like Mashable and TechCrunch were created with WordPress and still use WordPress today for their websites (at the point of writing this article). These are just 2 examples of large companies that use the platform as the basis for their website, but there are many more you’ll find if you look hard enough. Our own website here at Primal Space is built originally using the open source platform. WordPress Edinburgh is a concept we are passionate about.

We use the WordPress platform as a base for all of our websites that we design that are not e-commerce based. So every website design that doesn’t require a shopping cart system, will use a WordPress backend engine as a content management system. If you look through our portfolio of websites we have previously designed, you will see the examples of beautiful websites that can be created using this powerful content management platform. The websites we build using this software can then be easily and regularly updated by our clients themselves, without the need for us the website designers to be involved in adding simple things like text or content. We have recently created and written our own WordPress guide to help you get the most out of your website we have designed for you.

So if you want to create a new feature, blog post or promotion, you can too so yourself with the greatest of ease. Look no further than using us here at Primal Space, as your WordPress developer in Edinburgh, Scotland. With every website that we design and build using this CMS we give our clients and instructional guide in the form of a pdf file that shows them how to use each section of their admin area. It empowers our clients to regularly update their own website and gives them a reference file to go back to regularly to remind them of how to use any given section. We recommend using Visual Composer as your content editor for WordPress.
