Flare Web Design have been working with WordPress as a blogging and CMS platform since the early days of version 2.0 – WordPress has evolved and changed in to a real powerhouse of a Content Management System and is extremely popular, widely used and has a thriving design and development community that makes sure each platform update improves both the performance and admin user experience.
What WordPress is extremely good at is creating an easy to use content management environment that allows you and your marketing team an easy way to update content on your website. In recent years WordPress has also spread it’s wings from a mere blogging platform and can be customised to run lots of different types of business application – from an event booking interface through to E-commerce with filtered searches and cohesive content structure.
Most scrolling brochure based websites with great design and layout can be powered by WordPress as the content is seperated from the design. Flare Web Design can create ANY style of website with WordPress ( please ask us for examples! )
SEO or Search Engine Marketing has a lot of different aspects to it. The good news is that technically WordPress understands some of the real basics and is set up well “out of the box” to help a website tick some of the right boxes with the various search engines. Other content management systems have to be more manually set up from the outset so this is a good time-saver.
It is also very easy to improve upon the native SEO friendly techniques that the WordPress team have developed and it is no accident that “Internet Marketeers” and “Power Bloggers” all use WordPress as a good platform to promote themselves online.
