A lot of businesses and startups don’t know how great WordPress is, or why they should use it, so in this article I’m going to tell you why you should use WordPress for your business or startup website.
Aside from the fact that WordPress is free, WordPress is awesome. It’s easy to use, super powerful and you can do just about anything with it.
Not only that, but there’s a huge WordPress developer community, countless tutorials, guides, videos, ebooks and even entire businessesdedicated to helping you grow and maintain your WordPress website. If that wasn’t enough, according to w3techs.com:
“WordPress is used by 60.3% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 30.2% of all websites.”
If having 30% of all websites on the web powered by WordPress wasn’t testimonial enough on top of all the other awesomeness, it also powers the websites of some of the worlds biggest brands, including TechCrunch,MTV,Sweden.se, Microsoft, Facebook News and Vogue.
If that still wasn’t enough, check out this list of successful startups using WordPress:
