We love WordPress, at least now we do.
When I first studied web design at West Point, WordPress was a clunky, nearly-unusable platform that required technical expertise to produce lackluster results. Business owners shuddered at the name “WordPress.” Because of these factors, Agile has historically favored platforms like Squarespace, Shopify, and Magento. But WordPress continued to innovate in the background, and article after article detailed the vast improvements of the WordPress platform. The new WordPress finally launched in 2018, and we went to work testing every single aspect of the new version.Timelines are the name-of-the-game in website development.
“When will my site be up?” is a common and extremely reasonable question when beginning a project. Our team explored the new WordPress (and were blown away), found an incredible page builder that allows our clients to edit their websites even easier than a Squarespace website (with no coding required), and has cut our website launch times in half.
Plus, WordPress integrates with WooCommerce for an infinitely scalable e-commerce solution. We still use and love Squarespace, Shopify, and Magento for certain situations, but we are offering even better service and outcomes for our clients with increased tools in our belts.
