Written by Soph Topics: Blog m_10

Aside from the exciting development of the LoyalFree app you may be interested to know we also create and improve websites for businesses. There is a plethora of advice which can be confusing regarding website development but you’ve probably heard people talking about WordPress. So why is it often the preferred choice for creating business websites?

1. WordPress is low risk

Although many people may view WordPress as a ‘new’ or ‘modern day’ solution it has actually been around for over 10 years. Therefore your website will be future proof and secure. Not only this, it will continue to evolve with the updates WordPress introduce.

2. It’s easy peasy

WordPress is an intuitive tool which is user-friendly. You don’t need to be a technical whizz to navigate your way around. You’ll be able to easily add pages, blogs and edit your content. Not only is it user-friendly, it is also SEO-friendly, taking away the headaches of stabbing in the dark to optimise your content.

3. WordPress is open-source… now that’s saucy!

Gone are the days where you have to stick with one agency or web developer. By creating your website in WordPress you are giving yourself the freedom to do what you like. You are not tied to anyone every time it needs editing and updating. This gives you the ongoing freedom over how much time and money you spend on your website. Although we would want you to stay with us as clients – you are, in fact, free to leave!

4. Plugin, baby!

Once tied into developers you may find them asking for large sums of money for seemingly simple tasks. It’s not uncommon for an agency to ask for several hundred £s to put in a simple contact form. WordPress has hundreds of thousands of plugins which can be installed into your website for free, or very low cost. For example plugins can back your site up and boost your SEO for you. If you can think of it, there’s probably a WordPress plugin for it.

5. WordPress is the friendliest option!

Here we are in 2017. Everyone is using their phone or tablet to search online. Your website MUST be mobile friendly so it displays well in different sizes. This will please Google and more importantly, your customers. Not all WordPress sites are mobile responsive but they can be. And if we are involved, they certainly will be.

6. The blog slog

We all know it’s important to fill our websites with interesting content which is up to date and useful to the reader. Blogging has become one of the easiest ways to do this. WordPress makes it super easy to blog within your main website and by yourself!

7. Popularity Contest

WordPress is popular for good reason. It is estimated they currently have over 58% of the market share within the CMS (Content Management System) world. There’s no smoke without fire and we only envision this figure increasing!
