It’s almost the default answer to the question of where to build your next business website: WordPress. Not so fast, says Idea Grove’s vice president of digital, Nate Binford. Before you commit to WordPress, there are four reasons Nate says you should consider a different platform for your site.
- Security is questionable. Everyone is trying to hack WordPress, and if all of the plugins and themes used on your site aren’t updated then you’re vulnerable.
- Load speeds are slow. WordPress sites typically load slower, and that can affect your site’s search ranking.
- It’s difficult to update on your own. Don’t believe everything you hear about WordPress sites being easy to manage.
- It lacks native integrations. Businesses have other systems that they need to interact with their website, and WordPress doesn’t natively integrate with any of them.
