Making big things happen online starts with the platform that’s home to your website. 

WordPress, a global giant that powers over 60% of the websites on the internet, is our undisputed content management system (CMS) of choice for building custom websites!

Here are the 6 cornerstone reasons why we love WordPress at Reaction.

1. Easy to Update & Maintain

WordPress provides a user-friendly interface that even the technically unversed can easily navigate. No need to delve into the code, simple adjustments are just a few clicks away. 

Whether you’re adding new products to your ecommerce store, updating content for your service business, or building entirely new landing pages, WordPress coupled with Gutenberg makes updating/adding information a breeze.

2. Open Source for Endless Customization

The open-source nature of WordPress is a passport to endless customization. Your business goals and imagination are the only limits when it comes to building and optimizing your website. Believe us when we say you can literally build or integrate anything with WordPress.

Being open-source, this also means that WordPress is continually evolving and improving, with developers across the globe contributing to its core, making it better with each passing update.

3. Complete Ownership of Your Website

Building a website with WordPress allows your company to actually own the site with all of its media and code. This literally means you can download your website to a USB stick and bring it to any WordPress hosting provider in the world, including our very own website management and hosting service.

Platforms like Squarespace and Shopify don’t operate with the same model. Once you “subscribe” to their platform, you’re at the mercy of their terms of service. If you’re unhappy with their web experience, you’re ultimately stuck with them unless you move to another website platform.

4. Superior Ecommerce Performance

When you pair WordPress with WooCommerce, you have a powerhouse to kickstart a scalable ecommerce business. 

WooCommerce seamlessly integrates with WordPress, providing a robust framework for building an online store, be it a small boutique or a large online marketplace. This dynamic duo is revered as a gold standard in the ecommerce industry. Read more about our top 3 reasons to choose WooCommerce for your online store.

5. Plugin Library

WordPress has access to over 50,000 plugins in its official plugin library. From lead forms to image compression to caching performance and SEO, there’s a plugin for almost everything.

Being a custom WordPress agency, we believe in coding critical functionality directly into a site’s theme. Having 5-10 plugins is perfectly fine, but any more can slow down your site and possibly open your business up to security vulnerabilities.

6. Community Driven

Being a part of the massive WordPress community is like having an enormous reservoir of knowledge and support. 

The frequent meetups and global conferences are a testament to the collaborative spirit that drives continual innovation in the WordPress ecosystem. This community is not just about fixing bugs or solving issues. It’s about learning, sharing, and growing together in a thriving ecosystem that’s focused on mutual growth and success.
