We believe there is only one Content Management System that merits consideration in 2018 for municipalities: WordPress!
Website creators in 2018 would need to look for a really good reason NOT to consider WordPress as their top choice for Content Management!
More municipalities chose the WordPress platform than any other CMS in 2017, and the lead is growing every year. If you’re not on board with WordPress it’s likely you will be paying for a brand-new website in 4 years, or less! WordPress opens up a world of possibilities for your website. Consider the reasons below and see how WordPress can be a Powerhouse for your organization.
- There’s an
AppPlug-in for that! WordPress has 50,000 Plug-ins to offer that extend the possibilities of your website. Just as apps make phones “smart”, Plug-ins make your website “smart”! This allows you to provide better service to your citizens! And means increased productivity for you, saving staff time and tracking progress!
- WordPress has reached a dominant position and is remaining at the top, credited to its exceptional security and reliability.
- Ease of use. At the core of WordPress is a simple interface like the desktop publishing software you use today. With no coding experience or expert knowledge necessary, the learning curve is often about as short as typing in your URL and logging in. In fact, most users can pick up the basics without any training at all. Interfaces are polished and easy to use and are the result of years of refinement. It’s the power of Microsoft Word with the intuitiveness of an iPhone.
- WordPress offers the ability for a wealth of documentation.
- High Functionality. Publish with ease! If you’ve ever created a document, you’re already a whizz at creating content with WordPress. You can create Posts and Pages, format them easily, insert media, and with the click of a button your content is live and on the web.
- Long-term viability. Every piece of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards set by the W3C. This means that your website will work in today’s browser, while maintaining forward compatibility with the next generation of browser. If you’re not on board with WordPress it’s likely you will be paying for a brand-new website in 4 years, or less!
- Customization! WordPress is designed with community engagement in mind. WordPress’s comment tools give you everything you need to be a forum for discussion and to moderate that discussion.
- Access to leading edge technology. Tap into the collective intelligence of developers worldwide. WordPress isn’t going anywhere, it owns over 65% market share. You will not be limited to a small pool of developers creating for your website. Instead you will have access to developers worldwide brining you the latest technologies.
