Overall Satisfaction with WordPress
We primarily build websites in WordPress for our clients as well as for ourselves. Our company has two primary parts: website development and internet marketing. While we sometimes build using other content management systems, WordPress is our preferred platform for ease of use for the end-user, SEO capabilities, and flexibility. Overall it allows us to build websites that are easy for people to update, create new content on, and scale.
- Easily optimizable for SEO
- Easy to add new features with plugins
- If built right can be easy to update
- Sometimes the options are overwhelming
- Could work better for ADA compliance (but all CMS's should)
- Hackable because so many sites are built on it, though this can be solved with good hosting
- Increased efficiency
- Allowed us to expand
- Created options for new content
- Squarespace, Wix and Drupal
WordPress is more flexible and/or easier to use than the platforms above. While Wix and Squarespace are good for non-developers, and Drupal is good only for developers, WordPress can work well for both the end user, the viewer, and the developer.
Do you think WordPress delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with WordPress's feature set?
Did WordPress live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of WordPress go as expected?
Would you buy WordPress again?
If a company wants to build a website themselves, then I would not recommend WordPress. Wix or Squarespace would be better for that. However, if they want a website that can scale to do pretty much anything, as well as being easy to update, then WordPress would be a good choice.
