Top 10 reasons why we are a proud WordPress agency:
1.Customers are no longer held hostage:
Back in the day, if an edit had to be made to text or images on a website. The website owners would have to rely solely on their web master to make those changes. With WordPress those days are over! WordPress has a very user friendly content management system (CMS) with has a secure user portal that allows users to quickly and easily make changes to text, images, videos and more without ever having to be held hostage by a web master to get them done. Just imagine the savings.
- Cloud accessibility:
Access your secure website online from anywhere in the world and now any device. Simply get online, access any browser, from any device and login into your website’s portal. Recently WordPress released a new WordPress update making it even easier to make changes & updates from mobile devices.
- Stronger branding potential:
As a result, of customizing a WordPress theme or designing one from scratch there is uniformity throughout the website’s templates which results in brand consistency. The ability to add the same colors throughout uniformly along with other brand elements is essential for building a stronger and more effective brand power.
- Mobile Responsive:
No need to create a second website just for mobile. Although not exactly “out-of-the-box” mobile ready. WordPress mobile responsive themes come ready to be configured to be “mobile friendly”. You can also customize the CSS or add a plugin. It must have some kind of mobile design but WordPress gives you many options and makes it easy to transition and make your website mobile ready. Did you know that 39% of users in 2015 browsed the internet on their mobile phones? The number of mobile users continues to grow in 2016. If your site is not mobile responsive Google may also penalize the website by dropping its ranking if it’s not mobile friendly. Test if your website is mobile responsive here.

The lack of so much HTML code on WordPress make it the ideal platform for Google bots to crawl and index it quickly. There are also so many useful Search Engine Optimization (SEO) plugins available that can readily optimize your pages for the meeting basic SEO standards. Thus, helping your website thrive like a well oiled rocket!
- SEO GOLDMINE:

This creates the perfect conditions for an SEO Goldmine. The more text with identified keywords and links both in and out from your pages / blogs start to create & brew the right SEO mix your site needs to thrive with organic SEO.
- More Visitors
It’s all a domino effect from here; great SEO plugin, user friendly website inspiring new text regularly, great text resulting in link sharing all results in more users visiting your site. The better the content the longer users will read and share links resulting in a lower bounce rate which also gives Google bots a signal to its algorithm that your site is resourceful and that impacts your website’s ranking for even higher.

WordPress offers the ability to create multiple users with different user hierarchy levels to access the website.
