Many use other content management systems, or other online blogging platforms, but WordPress for me is the most functional, reliable, and just the easiest and best one to use. I've used Joomla, Blogger, and Tumblr in the past, mainly for personal use, but Wordpress can do this very well, as well as being scalable for more professional projects. It is simpler to use and works just as well if not better.

It was important for our business needs that it be easy to manage our website for non-technical staff. WordPress was significantly easier to use compared to Drupal. While it is possible that staff could have been trained on Drupal, WordPress required minimal training in order for our staff to post blogs and make content changes. Drupal also didn't have the same level of online support that WordPress had. If there was anything we wanted to do with WordPress, we could easily find how to do it with a quick Google search. This was not the case with Drupal.

Drupal is a much more complex beast. While simple sites can be created with Drupal, it has a larger learning curve. Additionally, upgrading to newer versions of Drupal is wrought with difficulty. There has been no clear upgrade path for the last 4 or 5 versions, often requiring code changes and a complete redesign of content. This is supposedly changing with newer versions, but I haven't seen this in practice yet. WordPress upgrades are simple and straightforward. Themes and plugins are often compatible with newer versions, except in well-known circumstances. Overall, the learning curve and daily care and feeding of WordPress are much lower.

A superior blogging tool

  • Blogger
Both Blogger and WordPress have their benefits, but I think since Blogger was bought out it has lost its edge. I think WordPress is just a superior platform for blogging. Blogger is user-friendly but overly available to all, so it is hard to make your blog stand out over the rest. WordPress is more complex, and so it gives you more opportunities to be creative.

It's similar as in a WYSIWYG editor, however, it has its vast differences in the way you build and edit content and the themes/plugins you can use.

I started out using regular web applications to build websites until I discovered WordPress is 2006. All of the sites I have built since then have been WordPress. Knowing all I know about WordPress now, I wouldn't recommend anything else for most business owners. WordPress allows me to build sites that can do almost pretty much anything I can imagine - e-commerce sites, membership sites, provide customer support, integrate with social media, etc ...

  • Ghost
Ghost is another CMS and Editor that I believe is a bit more blogging- and article-focused. There isn't as an extensive list of themes and extensions, but the UI is a bit more modern and faster. Regardless, WordPress provides more flexibility for creating a site that isn't designed to be a blog.

We made an agency decision many years ago to get on the Wordpress train and stay on it. We didn't want to try and manage multiple web platforms. At the time, Wordpress wasn't the most developer-friendly choice but it was starting to inch ahead in popularity. So we selected Wordpress as our go-to web platform based on the fact we believed it would be the best ROI for years to come. I'd love to say it was the features, the support, the community, etc. But it was really all about the ROI for us. We didn't want to spend the time on a Drupal, for example, just to do one Drupal site every other year.

The two other open source tools, Joomla! and Drupal, were at one time comparable to WordPress but have since been left behind as WP has more developers working on it. Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace are all great platforms for small companies who don't want to spend any attention on their website... but they are much more limited in extendability than WordPress is.

Free/open source: It is free as an in freedom and you can use it for any purpose. No one can suspend your website due to censorship or terms of service violation. You also have the freedom to customize WordPress to your needs without any restriction.

Wix and Squarespace offer low cost of entry with ongoing hosting and operating costs. They make it seem easy to create attractive websites but eventually most cases we have seen end up running into limitations with respect to extensibility and SEO opportunities.

FusionCMS is another CMS that we have worked with. In that one case, the client insisted upon it. It is used by very few organizations, compared to WordPress, and so there are far fewer affordable developers with whom we can work on it and far fewer addons available at little or no cost to extend or enhance it.

I believe WordPress is light years more robust than drag and drop templates websites. I do use it in conjunction with ClickFunnels because of the ease of use of that platform with CRM, email marketing and ecommerce built in. The plugin makes it easy for me to utilize both with ease.

About WordPress

Wordpress is an open-source publishing platform popular with bloggers and a content management system. The appearance of a Wordpress site and many of its functions are managed through themes, and further customizable through altering code, though altering code is not required; templates and plugins to expand its capabilities are plentiful. Wordpress features integrated link management, and a search-engine friendly permalink structure. WordPress now allows multiple blogs to exist within one installation. Websites may host their own blogging communities, controlling and moderating content from a single dashboard.

Wordpress is popular due to its simplicity and modifiability. Furthermore implementing Wordpress costs only time. Two paid versions exist. The $99 premium plan allows a user an ad free custom domain with 13GB of space and advanced customization. The $299 Business plan allows unlimited space and supports eCommerce as well.
