- Sony Music

- Washington Post
- And 80 Million More…
The use of WordPress by these media giants demonstrates the versatility of the platform and how it may be used for the primary website design, an online store, to create a blog, job board or any other type interactive or static site.
Why You Should Choose WordPress
We recommend using WordPress for your site because it is an excellent content management system, which will reduce your ongoing website maintenance and development costs. The tools available in the WordPress dashboard make it easier for you and your staff to create pages using a drag and drop page builder or integrated custom shortcodes.
WordPress Websites are Capable of Higher Rankings
Matt Cutts, a former Google employee said that “sites built with WordPress are capable of ranking higher in search results because the CMS takes care of 80-90% of Google’s crawling issues.” This is common knowledge in the WordPress community, and the reason is simple, WordPress is SEO friendly. This is also due to the fact over 90 million sites have been built using this platform, which means the Google crawler has certainly been programmed to understand WordPress.

Easy To Use
Why You Need a WordPress Website
WordPress is open-source software, so you will never need to pay for using this fantastic program. The good news is there are thousands of people around the world who contribute to the ongoing development of this software, ensuring it will continue to be updated and upgraded to include new features and functionality. There is also a huge community of developers and designers who create themes and plugins for WordPress and provide other services that can help your business.
The #1 Content Management System in the World
WordPress is an excellent content management system, enabling you and your staff to manage your website. WordPress gives you the ability to update your website easily, add new pages and posts, and perform routine maintenance. Having more control over your site will not only save you money but also allow you to publish updated content on a regular schedule.
Create, Save AND Export Page Layouts
The theme we use allows you to save page layouts you create and reuse them, saving you time and keeping the design of your website consistent. You have the power to export sections, rows, modules, and layouts for use on other pages of your site or other websites you own (*sites must use the same page builder).
Add New Features and Functionality
WordPress is a very flexible platform for your new website. You can add new features as your needs grow by installing plugins. Many paid and free plugins are available. However, we recommend caution when installing plugins; you should carefully review each plugin before installing it.
WordPress is Search Engine Optimized
Although WordPress is search engine friendly by default, we still install the Yoast SEO plugin to gain additional insight into the SEO of pages and posts. The Yoast SEO plugin allows for greater control of the titles and descriptions of your pages and posts. It also analyzes your content and provides suggestions that will help you improve your rankings in major search engines like Google and Bing.
Premium WordPress Theme
We install and configure a premium theme, that includes a lifetime license with every WordPress website design. Although there are many free themes available for WordPress, premium themes are always the best choice. The theme we install is regularly updated and offers many excellent features that are not available in free themes.
- Drag and drop or visual page builder.
- Woocommerce compatible.
- Huge selection of elements included.
- Regular updates and excellent security.
If you have special needs, we can help you select a theme that will provide all of the features you need. Although there are many multipurpose themes available that will work well, there are also WordPress themes and child themes designed specifically for restaurants, real estate, construction, and retailers just to name a few.
