WordPress is the de-facto CMS powering the web today. It’s such an established fact that there’s no reason to debate it. Technically, we can debate this headline and kill each other but logically yes, most of the sites can live on this planet through wordpress – statically or dynamically. I am explaining this further just to avoid any criminal wastage of time and resources and not satisfying anyone at the end – primarily the professsional / business, user and the content itself
Responsive web sites which support both web & mobile – Most of the business or web sites for professionals have 10-20 pages and serving a very basic need of offering about us, services, products and contact sections. Such sites today, do not offer a consistent experience on web and mobile. WordPress is the easiest option to offer such solution to this problem through responsive templates.
There are numerous template providers who cater to specific requirements and offer wordpress template for photographers, writers, corporates, doctors, educators, events, fashion, hotels, app makers, and what not. Even if there isn’t an option for your business, and a profession yet, a local wordpress designer and developer near you, or on the web, can do a very good job at making such template, which would feel that it was just designed for you. Most of this templates may not be responsive in true native nature, but many templates are starting to become. Some templates can be made responsive in basic sense through various wordpress plugins.
Maintaining a web and mobile version for a website is a headache for everyone. There are many complex scenarios and instances where wordpress cannot easily be proposed as a solution. But, a majority of the websites which exists as a brochure or basic business site can be fixed just through wordpress.
Your business discovery is changing on a day to day basic through what’s happening on web, search and social. Web, search and social on the other hand is not similar on desktop, tablet, phone and many other permutations and combinations which can occur within this eco-system.
If you wanted to become discoverable at all these places and without figuring out how many dots to connect together, the easiest solution is WordPress.
WordPress is not new, is pretty much reliable, stable, scalable, modular, customizable, self-hosted, 3rd party hosted, multi-language and powered with world-wide community of talent developers and designers. I have spent more than 15 years in Internet industry, if there is one CMS that I can think of which probably my other colleagues or some random web designer or developer is aware of – is wordpress.
If you want to own a business web-site which is responsive, discoverable and easily scalable, please do consider to be owned by WordPress. I am not writing this in praise of wordpress, but as a frustrated user who #1 problem is to see your contact web page on my mobile device. I wanted to reach you but sorry you made it too difficult to have my monies for your business.
