What is WordPress?

WordPress started off as a blogging platform back in the early 2000s. Since then, it has grown to power over 43% of all websites on the internet. WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that offers various capabilities like blogging and e-commerce.

There are two ways to start your WordPress project. Download and install WordPress (from wordpress.org) locally or on a host server, or create an account on wordpress.com and purchase a hosted WordPress website. 

This technology is very powerful and flexible. It can be used as a web development platform or as a simple blog. A word of caution: developing websites can get complicated and overwhelming. Hire a WordPress developer Calgary if you need support.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is a robust and flexible platform. It has quite a few advantages over traditional HTML (Bootstrap) websites. Some of the most common advantages are:

  1. Clients can add and maintain their own content.
  2. Blogging platform is closely integrated with the rest of the website.
  3. Thousands of plugins available to extend the functionality of the website. No need to hire an app development company.
  4. No coding / programming required to develop and maintain a WordPress website.
  5. WordPress is the best solution for SEO. Clients can create content with ease and automate SEO tasks. Learn more about our SEO services.

Why you should work with a professional WordPress Developer

When a company or individual decides to make a website, generally one of two things will happen. Some people will swing over to a website builder and forge out a quick and basic page.

While this can be great to get your website up and running quickly, it still means that you will be confined to using a basic template. Depending on how you intend to use your website, this might be enough—or it might be a great starting point. But, if you want real results, it can really pay to work with a professional WordPress developer Calgary company.


Working with a professional WordPress designer

Working with a professional WordPress designer can have some pretty big perks. First, you get to have a completely original website. Website builders are great for making a generic website, but most businesses prefer to be more unique.

Allowing a professional website designer to build your website means that you can have a website that is purely your own. It is a great way to guarantee that your website matches your brand—and it makes it easy for you to get the right functionality too!

The benefits of custom WordPress web design

Custom web design isn’t just about having a website made. It is about having a website that is made specifically for your business. While a lot of website owners can get away with a lot of general functionality, that isn’t always the case—and frankly, it is a little boring. Do you want a generic website that looks like everyone else’s—or do you want a website that really engages your audience? While a simple website can do the trick, it probably won’t speak to the best interest of your business. Hire a WordPress developer Calgary to make your website pop.
