Why is WordPress so popular?
We are at the beginning of the age of technology. There's no denying it. 47% of the world population use an internet enabled device. This means that it is easiest for your potential customers to find you if you have a website and not everyone wants to or has the time to learn how to build a website from scratch. Enter WordPress, the easier option to building a website.
It is a great way to build a good looking functional website. You do also have to learn a few things to be able to create the website that you envisioned but if you just want a website and didn't have something too specific in mind you could just install WordPress, find and install a theme you like, download a couple plug-ins to make building the website even easier and then get building. Its a simple way to get a website out there, without having to learn everything that was traditionally required to build websites such as HTML and CSS.
We use WordPress to build some of our websites because it makes it easy for our customers to update the information on their websites because it has a Content Management System (CMS). This is a very useful feature for us as it means that our customers can edit the text and other items on their homepage without needing to rely on us to do it.
