WordPress was originally developed for blogging purposes. Not many people blogged back then and WordPress had limited use. Those days are long gone. WordPress is now the primary CMS (Content Management System) used to develop new web sites.
Templates make a great start when designing a new web site. They include the basic look and layout. They can be tweaked with colors, content, images, plugins, etc. That means less cost for initial development.
Many of the modern templates are responsive designs so they adjust the layout to look good on various portable devices such as phones and tablets. This is mandatory considering over 50% of the people accessing the internet use Personal Portable Devices (PPD). In addition, the latest Google algorithms will lower your replacement if your site is not responsive.
WordPress is designed to provide quality SEO (Search Engine Placement), but many people do not understand the potential. With some tweaking, we can help your site climb the rankings.
