Why CAL Design Recommends WordPress
There are a number of options out there when it comes to content management systems. But, out of the many systems available, we strongly recommend WordPress for most of our projects.
Here’s why we like WordPress:
It’s easy to use – If you have common office-related computer skills, you can easily learn how to do most common tasks in WordPress
Prompt and available support – No content management system is perfect, but WordPress pays careful attention to any issues and fixes them promptly
Large online community of users – WordPress has a very strong following, and a thriving developer community. Open-source developers create “plugins,” which can instantly add certain types of functionality to your site. Plugins are free or have a very low cost, compared to developing something from scratch which could cost thousands of dollars
For the best results of any online marketing you’ll be doing, it’s important that you update your website’s content on a regular basis – whether it’s through one of our content writers, or on your own. Google gives preference in its rankings to websites that update their content on a regular basis, and this is becoming more and more essential.
Edit Your own Site with a Website Content Management System
Have you ever wondered how your favorite websites are created and updated with new articles, photos, videos, etc? The process can be a complex one, but fortunately today, website content management systems make the process of updating your website quite simple. We’re not talking about having you become a web design guru overnight. But we are talking about a solution that allows you the ability to make simple design changes, as well as adding new content, a breeze. If you’re capable of running common office software, you’d certainly be able to work with a quality website content management system.
Implement Changes When You Want & How You Want
Of course, we offer monthly maintenance programs for those of you who would rather have a professional make your updates for you. But for those of you who are up to the task, having a WordPress website design in place, will give you the ability to make minor updates, without having to call for support. That way, you can handle most of the content and minor design changes for your website yourself, while giving CAL Design a call when things get a little too complex.
