In this article, we are going to talk about why Arva loves using WordPress as a content management system for designing and developing amazing websites. WordPress is the world’s most popular CMS platform used today and powers 25% of all websites on the Internet.
What do we mean by CMS (Content Management System)?
A content management system is a platform/software which allows users to more effectively produce and manage content that is directly published on the web. This platform communicates directly with your website’s host to transfer and manage all content from photos, videos, accounts, templates, and more.
WordPress is also an open source program which allows users from around the world to design and develop specific plugins or features that a website needs. There are many talented programmers out there who have developed amazing plugins that can help a website accomplish many things such as:
- Website design templates and ideas to help get ideas rolling
- Website visual editors that enable a beginner to click and drag limited content and design
- Contact forms that collect specific data and allow your clients to message you without leaving the website
- Event registration and calendars
- And much more…
Our personal favorite is the overall simplicity of WordPress and the easy access it gives to our clients. Though you can accomplish almost anything with WordPress, most people do not want to pay a developer/designer to help them add a new product to their store or publish a new blog posting. With WordPress, doing the simple things has never been easier and gives our clients access to a simple and user friendly platform so they have the ability to update and add new content to their website.
As WordPress continues to grow, so does its competition. Competitors such as Squarespace, Weebly, Wix, and even domain providers like GoDaddy are now offering even simpler platforms for designing and developing websites. Don’t forget that WordPress owns 25% of the Internet for a reason. That reason is because WordPress has zero limitations and can be fully customized to accomplish your company’s individual needs. Platforms such as Squarespace create value for consumers due to its similicity and easy learning curve for beginners to create their own websites. Though Squarespace and other similar WordPress competitors offer simplicity, they also have many limitations with designing and developing custom aspects.
Don’t let any of these website creation platforms fool you. Creating a website from scratch is no easy task and requires a lot of expertise and design knowledge. Generating the proper content for your website alone can take days and even months.
