When it comes to content management systems (CMS), the popularity of the open source WordPress platform is on the rise (currently powers 31% of the internet), and is it any wonder? WordPress lets website owners manage their content, swap themes, create membership websites, syndicate content, and a whole lot more.
WordPress offers a variety of themes and layouts, from cheap out-of-the-box solutions to entirely free, plug-and-play themes. You know the saying “you get what you pay for?” Well, WordPress websites are no different, cheap/free WordPress themes are used by thousands of other businesses, so your site will look like all of the others out there. It will quickly become broken & outdated and bloated with functionality that you don’t need, which ultimately impacts the performance of your website. In today’s digital world a smooth user experience (UX) and a lightning fast website are essential. Research suggests you only have a couple of seconds to grab a users attention, having a sluggish or slow loading website can cost you valuable leads & sales.
