Quality WordPress Design and Functionality
WordPress and its Content Management Systems have truly come a long way over the last 5 years. The ease of use of such a system has allowed millions to get online and make a name or statement for themselves. The ability to post content each and every day by logging on for just a few minutes is in itself amazing. The ease of use with WordPress has also allowed Sacramento Web Design Group the ability to create a spectacular website for our clients in just a few days. We have been working with WordPress for over 8 years, so we consider ourselves experts in all things WordPress.
Small Business Solutions When You Need Them!
What we don’t expect is our clients to be experts in WordPress. That’s why WordPress is so well suited for our clients. Its easy to manage, its easy to update, and its even easier to train our clients how to use it themselves. There no longer is a need to be chained to a web designer or web developer all your life. Sure, we love monthly service contracts, but WordPress has given us something else.. a way for our clients to voice their opinions, topics, articles, company news, all of which takes Sacramento Website Design Group out of the content-writing business. You can imagine the research we had to accomplish before when we had to write our client’s content. What do we know actually know about swimming pools or carpet cleaning? Not much. Now our clients are able to better manage their own websites, their own social profiles, their own content, and even their own website administration panel. Sure, we love service contracts, but we love it when our clients have the ability to truly manage their own business online!
I’m going to list some things you may not know about WordPress, the Best CMS (content management platform) in the world!
WordPress is Highly Scalable
WordPress for some may seem like only a solution for small business. The fact is its just as capable on larger sites running hundreds of thousands of pages. WordPress.com, which is the hosted version online, has over 20 million blogs running on a version of WordPress. Now that’s true scalability.
More Than Simple Posts & Pages
WordPress was originally devised as a simple blogging platform before evolving into a full fledged Content Management System. While it used to only have posts and pages, it now is capable for custom content types. These new abilities in WordPress allow you to create content that can be displayed in virtually anyway you wish. There are also plugins for WordPress that can assist in this from the WordPress backend. Custom taxonomies allow content to take any shape and be sorted and classified anyway you need it.
Superior User Management
WordPress can be setup for very powerful user management if you design requires it. Most websites don’t need a complex user management system. Most small businesses have only one or two people maintaining it at any given time. There are several plugins that can add even more core functionality in the user management of WordPress. They can be quickly installed and configured when required.
An Architecture That Plays Well With Ecommerce
While there is still many of us who believe that a full-fledged Ecommerce site should run on a strict Ecommerce Platform, there are several WordPress plugins that can transform WordPress into a slick Ecommerce store for selling online. There really isn’t anything you can’t sell online using an Ecommerce WordPress site including real products, digital downloads and subscriptions. Even more, you can manage stock, create wishlists, pricing charts and automatic discounts, sales and have a system that works well with shipping, sales management and cost analysis. WordPress has been able to integrate with the very popular global shopping carts like OpenCart, Zencart and OS Commerce for quite some time.
