WordPress Development

Want to build a cool website for your online business? Better, want to build a powerful online framework that can support your business for years? You need a WordPress developer.

We’ve got your back.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is the most popular blogging platform in the world. In fact, over 30% of all sites use WordPress, including TechCrunch, The New Yorker, Bloomberg, and MTV News. Chances are, if you’re visiting a website that regularly posts content, it’s probably running WordPress.

It’s the simplest, most versatile content management platform on the internet. Creators can choose website themes, upload media, manage forums, complete sales, and write content without knowing a lick of code. (Though it helps to know a little.) It’s as simple as Wix or Squarespace–but easier to manage, more customizable, and supported by thousands of third party developers worldwide.

It’s also free to use. So there’s that.

But WordPress doesn’t just make blogs. Though it was originally intended as a blogging platform, it has since grown into a ‘whatever-you-need’ platform. Thanks to its near-infinite (and still growing) list of plugins, you to make your site do anything.

Want to build an eCommerce store? WooCommerce. Starting a web forum? bbPress. Need a new social network? BuddyPress. It’s as simple as clicking “Install” and “Activate.”

If you can dream it, you can WordPress it.

And since WordPress works closely with search engines like Google, most sites are SEO-capable, right out of the box. The basic blog template, for example, comes with an Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) theme enabled. All you have to do is post.

How can WordPress development improve my business?

No matter what you do, WordPress can help you do it better.

Creating a post is as simple as writing a Word document, no code required. And adding pictures, video, and sound is as simple as opening the media folder, dragging, and dropping. Need a new page or subpage? It only takes one click to add it. Want to delete a spammy comment? That only takes one click, too.

And online sales is a snap. WordPress’s native eCommerce plugin, WooCommerce, allows you to do business your way. It works with all your favorite apps–like Amazon, PayPal, MailChimp, Square, and Facebook–so you can market, sell, and ship all from one place. No wonder it’s the most popular platform among agencies and store owners.

Want to track your site’s growth? WordPress comes with its own built-in analytics software, so you can track your page views, impressions, and form submissions. (At Whiteboard, we prefer Google Analytics for all our in-depth performance marketing, but it’s pretty cool, seeing that simplified overview on the site’s dashboard.)
