There are lots of blogging platforms that you can choose from for your funeral website. There’s Google’s very own Blogger.com, Tumblr, WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla, among others. Out of all the platforms available out there, WordPress is arguably the best for a number of reasons. WordPress is extremely flexible and is extremely customizable, thanks to the thousands of plugins and powerful templates available for it.
If your funeral website is not yet using WordPress, the following are some compelling reasons why you should take advantage of it.
WordPress is the most widely-used CMS
WordPress currently accounts for 20.4% of all websites in the world, and is currently the most widely-used Content Management System (CMS). A lot of web developers are so familiar with it that it requires very little training for your web development team to learn it.
WordPress is open source and extremely customizable
Because WordPress can be self-hosted, there is very little cost associated with implementing and managing it. It’s free to download, install, and upgrade. It’s also extremely customizable, one of the reasons why it’s so popular among web developers. With tens of thousands of plugins and extensions that are often free, there’s almost unlimited ways to program your WordPress site. There are plugins for video, slideshows, contact forms, and social sharing.
Plugins are also available to help you create and modify your funeral website’s layout and application so that you can build a site that truly meets the demands of your users.
Built not just for the advanced developers
WordPress was built around the idea that everyone can create a fully functional website. In other words, WordPress was created as an inherently user-friendly CMS. Running a funeral website on WordPress makes it so much easier to upgrade, to code to tweak the layout, and update blog entries. It’s also extremely easy to add widgets and other functions with WordPress. Today, there are lots of WordPress user manuals available for free online to help guide new users get up to speed with WordPress.
Low setup and maintenance cost
Perhaps one of the most appealing benefits of using WordPress is its low setup and maintenance cost. According to experts, setting up and maintaining a WordPress site is much more affordable compared to other open source CMS platforms such as Joomla and Drupal. And because WordPress is the most popular CMS, finding designers and developers to upgrade and customize your funeral site in the future is relatively easy.
