Why choose WordPress?

WordPress continues to be my go-to for all website development, allowing me to offer my clients an infinitely scalable and practical solution for fully integrated and sales-focused website designs.

WordPress is my preferred platform for several reasons:

Open Source

It’s open-source, which means I can do anything I like with it without being restricted to a particular vendor (e.g. Shopify, Wix, Squarespace).

Active, Diverse Community

WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS), powering over 65% of all CMS-based websites.

It has a rich community and lots of plugins, allowing you to extend common functionality (e.g. event management, ecommerce, CRM integration) without having to write it from scratch.

Low Barrier to Entry

It’s low barrier to entry means clients often already have experience using it and don’t need to reskill to learn a new platform.

Cheap to Host & Maintain

It’s cheap to host and maintain, meaning less overhead for clients and myself.

Flexible and Extensible

It’s very flexible, it can be used for almost any type of website, from a small blog, to eCommerce shops, to large scale international news/media sites, to multi-vendor marketplaces, etc.
