The right tools for the job
First off, we love WordPress. It’s the world’s leading content management system, and for the majority of our clients, we recommend it as the platform of choice for their new website. This is mainly because we know we can achieve what you need using this platform at a reasonable price, and that you’ll find it easy to edit it when we’re done.
This isn’t to say that it’s the right choice for everyone, however. There is a whole galaxy of options for developing your next website or web application, and we’ll always discuss these options with you to make sure you’re considering the most appropriate ones.
We’re aware some people may have had less than positive experiences with WordPress in the past, but like any tool, we are convinced this is more to do with how it has been configured as opposed to something about the platform itself.
At any rate, every one of our clients are happy with how we’ve put WordPress to use for them, even the one or two who had mixed experiences with WordPress in the past. We’ll explore why we usually recommend the platform below.

Scale with confidence
Sometimes websites like online shops and user communities need more resources than others, and scaling your website while people are using it can be tricky.
