A few years back there was an infomercial out called “Stop The Insanity” by Susan Powter which was about losing weight and dieting. Today’s business owners who want a website are going insane with all the choices available.
As a business website developer I use WordPress for my projects which I’m often asked to justify to potential clients. Especially the one’s who’ve tried to educate themselves about their options. Here are the top 3 reasons I use WordPress:
- Long term ease of use.
- A robust development community.
- Ability to easily develop and manage “niche websites”.
Part of the development community are the folks over at www.wpmudev.org which is one of the few memberships I maintain. There “upgrade guarantee” is one of the best I’ve seen and they actually do it. Which is especially important for me with how the WordPress Core’s rapid developments.
Here are the www.wpmudev.org offering I use in most every project:
- Domain Mapping which allows unique domain names for each Multi-Site installation
- BuddyPress themes
- Autoblog for SEO
- New Blog Templates
- Site Maps & SEO
These are the core files I use with every project and the having them upgraded for each new version of WordPress keeps me developing client projects and not spending my time maintaining my client projects.
