WordPress has quickly grown to become one of the most powerful open source content management systems in the world. In fact, it’s used by at least 14.7% of the top million websites in the world. That’s for websites in general, in terms of websites that use a CMS; it holds a market share of over 55% and, in the US, is being used on 22% of new domain registrations.
Although many of the websites we design aren’t using a CMS at all, this is primarily due to the static nature of their content. After all, a basic company website that exists merely to provide basic information about the company (e.g. products and services, operating hours, its address, etc.) doesn’t need to change much. It all depends on what the company wants and, here at Spotted Frog Design, the customer is always right. (Unless, of course, they’re wrong.)
At the same time, we often suggest WordPress to clients who we feel would really benefit from a dynamic, versatile website that can grow with their business. Although their present needs might not explicitly call for a CMS, investing the time and resources into an excellent WordPress site now can pay dividends year after year.
