WordPress the most popular CMS in the World

Now WordPress is so much more than a blogging platform. It has emerged as one of the most versatile, feature-rich Content Management Systems available and has become the online publishing platform of choice for millions of company websites.
Lero9’s WordPress design and development team have helped reposition many businesses online, enhancing the perception of their brand and helping to drive more business their way.
Just take a look at some of the successful WordPress websites we’ve developed.

WordPress is so flexible

 Here are just some of the reasons why WordPress is so popular
and why you might want to consider switching to WordPress for your company’s website.

Ease of Use – WordPress has an intuitive interface and is easy to use. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is simple and can be done quickly. Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is greatly reduced.
Search Engines Love WordPress Sites – WordPress pages are clean and simple and are structured according to latest SEO best practice making it easy for search engines to read and index your site’s content. Each page or post can be further enriched with its specific SEO title and description meta tags.
Open and Extensible Platform – The WordPress community has developed thousands of plugins that extend the functionality by adding features such as product catalogs, shopping carts, store locators, contact and survey forms, event calendars, forums and so on.
Highly Customised Design – WordPress acts as the engine for your website content. The look and feel of the site can be customised by utilising a theme so you can present a unique brand experience to your visitors. The current theme market provides many sophisticated and feature rich designs that we can further adapt to your needs.
Social Media Integration – It is easy to connect your WordPress site to the most popular social networks — Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and more. Once connected to a social networking service, all of your WordPress posts will be shared automatically.
Multiple User Roles – WordPress offers multiple user roles that enforce what your administrators, editors and contributors can do so that appropriate editing powers can be appointed to various people within your company.

So who uses WordPress apart from us?

Today, one in every six websites on the Internet is built using WordPress; making WordPress the most popular blogging cms on the Web. There are over 60 million WordPress websites attracting over 330 million visitors who view more than 3.4 billion pages each month.

The sheer popularity of WordPress is a testament to its flexibility and effectiveness as a serious CMS platform and is the default digital publishing tool for most B2B websites and many major media companies worldwide including Sony Music, BBC America, The New Zealand Listener, DoleFortuneFord,  the New York Observer, Forbes and The New Yorker.

Look at some of the businesses we have repositioned online
using WordPress

"Our collaboration with Lero9 started in September 2009 when we asked Lero9 to completely redesign our arts and culture portal, culture360.org. Since then, it has been a pleasure to work with Lero9. First of all in terms of delivering high quality projects on time, but also in terms of being available once the site was completed with support and suggestions to further extend the functionality of the platform. It is very hard to find developers and designers that actually understand the “language” used by the non-profit cultural sector. Especially when we talk about the complexity in which culture360. org operates, facilitating international cultural cooperation between 50 countries of Asia and Europe."

"Robert, Leanne and the team at Lero9 are superbly professional and passionate about getting the best possible result. Their experience is evident in their mature methodology and wealth of previous solutions that they were able to summon up in response to our requirements. Their rigour, thoroughness and attention to detail in the design phases definitely resulted in a clean, effective site.
The design is excellent and technically they have proved themselves to be ahead of the pack. Robert knows exactly how to get the most out of the tool set to find quick and elegant solutions ultimately saving time and money. Their ability to work with our internal IT department made the process extremely smooth.
Lero9’s expertise shines through and I’d recommend them for any website project."

− Matthew S., Product Manager (The NZ Listener), APN

"As we evaluated a long list of companies to work on upgrading our site, Lero9 stood out. From the beginning Robert and Leanne showed a high level of expertise and attention to detail, and they just seemed to “get it”. They are also very organised and great communicators, which minimized the impact of the geographic and time difference. Despite a few external challenges the project was completed on time and we were very happy with what was delivered. Robert is extremely thorough, knows his stuff, and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Lero9 as a partner in your next online project.
