WordPress

From e-commerce to a one-pager, WordPress is a solid solution

WordPress has come a long way in the past few years. Originally a platform for blogging, WordPress has expanded its milieu and now a full 26% of the internet is built with WordPress. 40% of content management systems are based on WordPress. Large sites like CNN, EBay and the Wall Street Journal are run with the powerful WordPress content management engine. Now WordPress is often used for editing pages, setting up menus, processing forms, and performing important business functions on websites. We at Watermelon have used WordPress for everything from one-page “Coming Soon” sites to complex e-commerce sites built with WooCommerce (acquired by WordPress itself in 2015), database-intensive sites, and sites that access multiple sources of data from different repositories.

WordPress has the largest repository of plugins of all content management systems, so they reduce development time significantly. That saves you money.

And of course WordPress is a blog for many people as well. It is still (in our opinion) the best blogging tool around.

Watermelon Web Works develops custom WordPress solutions for complex directories, custom e-commerce solutions, and just good-looking and functional websites. Our WordPress maintenance and SEO package has been getting lots of compliments. We’d love an opportunity to serve your business needs.
