The benefits of WordPress are many, below are just a few.
Ease of Use
WordPress is easy to use even for beginners. No programming knowledge or skill required. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, etc. can be done quickly. The WordPress platform is built with a content management area that controls nearly every aspect of the site, in an entry form format.
No need for your web designer to perform simple updates to your site. You have control of nearly every aspect of your website. Since the content management area is browser-based, you can log in from any Internet-connected computer and manage a significant portion your site’s content.
Blogs are a significant component of today’s website and its content delivery, being an entertainment or corporate site. The majority of sales generating sites requires SEO. Blogs provide an easy method to deliver that fresh content. Websites with new content will rank better.
Adding advanced functionality to your website such as eCommerce, event management, calendars, is much easier with WordPress. The days of having a developer code a new function for your site is pretty much over. WordPress plugins provide an alternative to costly programming.

Thousands of WordPress themes are available. Don’t let the word “theme” fool you; they are necessary for WordPress to function properly and a powerful tool when constructing your site. We include lifetime licenses to either Divi or Extra from Elegant Themes at zero annual cost to clients — this is an $89 annual value.
One of the hardest jobs when creating a new site is fine-tuning your on-page content for SEO (search engine optimization).
