Why WordPress?

WordPress has become the leading content management system (CMS) in the world. Companies like The New York Times, CNN, Forbes, Best Buy, and UPS all harness the flexibility, ease, and power of WordPress. At Zogo Design, we have also found WordPress to be the ideal web presence solution and utilize its many strengths to provide our customers with a flexible, user-friendly platform that can meet every need and grow along with their business.

Content Management Systems

Content Management Systems are essential for nearly every website, large or small. CMSs—like WordPress, Joomla, and others—allow authorized users to add or change content to a site without a lot of technical know-how. They provide an interface where pages can be added easily, blogs updated at the push of a button, and plugins installed to add increased functionality as the need arises. They also organize all of the elements of a website so they can be easily located and modified.

Why WordPress?

While there are a number of CMSs available today, WordPress stands out. First, WordPress has a much better framework than a lot of other CMSs—like Joomla. This gives our web developers greater flexibility with the overall design and page layout of the site. Since their design is not forced into a generic template, a custom WordPress website built by Zogo Design will be attractive and effectively organized to convert customers and give your brand the strongest online presence possible while still being user-friendly on the backend.

WordPress also has the most extensive collection of plugins available, which can give your site an almost unlimited array of functions: online stores, client portals, media galleries, user forums, and much, much more. There is a vibrant community of developers, as well, who continue to improve and update WordPress and its plugins for increased usability and security. The web developers at Zogo Design can show you the power of these plugins and how they can help you to grow your business.

In addition, the user interface is simple, intuitive, and customizable. If you know how to write and send an email, you can add a page of content, post a blog, or edit copy on a WordPress website. It really is that easy. If you don’t have the time or personnel to write professional web copy, we offer web content services to clearly communicate your message and boost your search engine rankings.

In fact, WordPress works exceptionally well with search engines, meaning more exposure for your site. As your online presence grows, so does the importance of security. Again, WordPress has the best options available.

Customers Respond to Responsive Sites

The digital landscape is changing so fast that content producers are having a hard time keeping up. Five years ago, nearly all web browsing happened on a PC, so web developers could create one version of a site, taking into account a few minor differences in web browsers. Mobile devices have changed everything.

According to the Digital Consumer Report recently released by Nielsen, 65% of Americans now own a smartphone, and almost one third have a tablet. Many of these consumers prefer their mobile devices for web browsing and even online shopping because it is often much more convenient than sitting at a computer. For web developers, though, this has created a real challenge. Screen sizes and resolutions vary wildly as hundreds of smartphones and tablets hit the market each year, and there will continue to be new devices, like Google Glass, that will create additional challenges. It’s just not feasible to create a new version of a website for every device that gets released. So a responsive website is the only efficient way to meet this new demand.

Responsive Web Design Solutions

You’ve probably had the unpleasant experience of opening an unresponsive website on your smartphone. You have to scroll and zoom and scroll and zoom; pictures are often cut off or missing; and the menus are hard to navigate. A responsive website allows for a single custom website design to adjust to any screen size, platform, or orientation. Good responsive website design ensures that all graphics, text, and forms are organized and viewed just as easily on a smartphone or tablet as on a PC. Responsive websites look like they were designed for that specific device, which allows for a much more pleasant and productive experience for the user. There are a number of ways that this is accomplished:
•Fluid grid-based layouts
•Sliding composite images
•Flexible images
•CSS3 media queries
•Hiding less important content areas

Using these techniques in a custom website design will ensure that users see all of the important content on a site in a way that fits their screen and is easy to navigate.

SEO and SEM Friendly

A responsive website also helps your search engine optimization and marketing. Google favors mobile optimized sites when retrieving search results, especially for local services. Also, having one URL for the site means you only have to optimize one site, as opposed to two if you make a stand-alone mobile site. And since responsive websites are much more user friendly, they will keep users on the site longer, reducing the site’s bounce rate, which can have a negative effect search results.
