Quite simply WordPress is a content management system – a CMS is a software that facilitates creating, editing, organizing, and publishing content. WordPress allows your business to have full control over the files, documents, as well as the design and display of the content. “Sounds great, how does this benefit my business?” The first benefit that you may not think about is time. Whether you are updating your website personally or you hire a web developer to update your site, it will cut the amount of time to do so in half. Due to the nature of WordPress, it is open source community software. This means there is a large group of volunteers continually updating WordPress to ensure it is safe, reliable and improving. Another benefit of WordPress being open source is that the community is always creating additional content to add to WordPress, such as plugins, themes and software extensions. All of this means that your business can have a safe, clean, robust and beautiful website that anyone can edit with only a few hours of education on how to use WordPress.
