Why This Matters to You
WordPress’ large market share means that support for any question or issue you have is just a Google search away. There is constant development, frequent updates with improvements and security enhancements, an active support community, and a host of online resources.
Themes and plugins are always being developed to add functionality and keep up with current design trends.
You own and control your website. Want to fix a typo or add a new page or product? You can do it yourself rather than paying a professional.
WordPress has built-in search engine goodness. It’s built out of the box to organize your content in a way that will help you get found online. There is an existing plugin for just about anything you can imagine on your website — appointment booking, events calendars, e-commerce and much more.
