Why WordPress?

These days, all the websites I create are WordPress-based. Here’s why I made that choice.

Imagine – you wake up one morning, grab your cup of coffee, sit down at the computer, pull up your website to see how much money you made overnight, and –WHAM–you see a blank page that says, “You’ve been hacked by KarlMeister”. You go into panic mode….”OH NO!!! What do I do now?”

It happens. A LOT.

It’s been estimated that over 30,000 websites get hacked every single day across the globe.

But WordPress lessens the chance of that happening to you – immensely. WordPress is constantly being updated to stay on top of the latest hacking attacks and security vulnerabilities.

Out of the box, it’s pretty secure. But I know a lot of additional tweaks that make it nearly bullet-proof.

So prevent the nightmare before it happens, and hire me to make you a really-secure WordPress-based website.

Easy To Learn and Use

With WordPress, you don’t need to contact your web designer every time you want to update or make a change to your website.

I can teach you what you need to do to update your website, add new features, and add content.

Or, you can just google your question because there are literally MILLIONS of how-to articles and videos online about how to fix any kind of error or feature with WordPress.

Easy-peasy!

It’s the #1 CMS

Now, I’m not saying “Use WordPress because everyone else is.

But the fact is, over 25% of websites today are using WordPress. In fact, there are an estimated 74,652,825 websites using WordPress.

There’s a reason for that!

It’s popular is because it works well, it’s secure, it’s flexible, and it’s constantly being updated.

Expandable

There are so many ways to easily expand the functionality of WordPress.

You can create anything you can imagine and incorporate it into your website.

Get creative and be unique!

Cost-Effective

WordPress and WooCommerce are free.

Can’t get much better than that, can you?

You’ll want to increase the functionality with various plugins, themes, and other add-ons, but most are not very expensive.

Many developers opt for a subscription-based pricing system where you have to keep paying every year to continue using a plugin.

I always opt for the best plugins that only include a one-time purchase, though (there is one noatble exception, however).
