It’s no secret we are WordPress Designers and Developers. 90% of our web projects are in WordPress. For a reason.

It’s the most robust and easy to use platform, the most scalable, and the biggest bang for your buck.

It’s the easiest to learn how to update, and there’s no walls to run into.

The Proof is in the Data. According to Wappalyzer, which is an app that analyzes all website in the world and which technology they’re built on, WordPress is far and way the most widely used CMS (Content Management System) in the world. This means there’s also tons of support and features and functionality coming.

Of course, we use Shopify too, and build custom, when appropriate, but 9.5 times out of 10, WordPress is the most cost effective and overall the most effective solution.

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
