Why We ❤️ WordPress

WordPress is our favorite content management system (CMS) and website development platform. You may have seen WordPress.com blogs in the past, but what you may not know is that WordPress.org websites have been around for along time. They are a favorite of many small businesses and nonprofit organizations for their flexibility and user-friendly experience. Here are some reasons why we love WordPress.

It’s easy. WordPress is a very easy, user-friendly platform to manage. Organizations can assign roles to team members with a variety of permissions. Content is easily stored as published, protected or in draft-mode.

It’s flexible. WordPress allows for design to be easily changed without changing the back end of the website, and still allowing users to login to their accounts. WordPress also releases updates to their system. You will always be sure to have the most up-to-date version of the CMS.

It’s customizable. WordPress websites all look different, contain different content, and are used for different purposes. The CMS is not a one-size-fits-all.

It’s mobile-friendly. The WordPress platform defaults to a mobile-friendly viewing experience. Content is easily seen no matter which device the user has.

It will keep you organized. The category and tagging functions are available on every piece of content added to your website, making searching and organizing content easy.

It’s affordable. Because WordPress is easily customizable and flexible, it is also very affordable and easy to maintain. This makes it a great solution for midsize businesses or nonprofit organizations where an in-house team will be managing the website.

As we have mentioned, we love using WordPress because of how flexible this content management system is. We work with a lot of real estate and mortgage clients, and one of the reasons why it is so flexible is because of the incredible number of mortgage industry plugins available. Plugins may be free or they might cost a little bit of money, but regardless if you use free or paid plugins, there are some truly great developers out there creating useful plugins for your WordPress website.  While pretty much every industry can benefit from the vast number of WordPress plugins out there, we wanted to take some time to focus on the mortgage industry.
