Is your business considering WordPress for it’s next project? With so many people now using open-source platforms such as WordPress for their web presence, it’s probably a good idea to look a little into open source. With so many options out there, choosing which road to go down can be quite tricky. Let’s explore the Top 9 Benefits of WordPress Web Design.

Firstly lets start with some of the generally perceived negatives surrounding the industry.

1. Lack of personal support
As the open sourced community is ‘open’, its is hard at times to get any support at all from one key source.

2. Lack of Documentation
Reliable, accurate and up to date documentation can also be hard to find for much of the work out there from various developers.

3. Immature product
As time goes by this point is becoming more and more redundant.

As WordPress is the leader in open source nowadays, We thought it’s a good idea to look into the general perceived benefits of WordPress compared to closed source systems.
