- Content Management System (CMS) – With over 40% of the world’s websites being created with WordPress including the New York Post, TED, Thought Catalog, HTC, FourSquare, SoundCloud, USA Today, CNN, Fortune.com, Spotify, TechCrunch, NBC, and more. We find it easy to support our client’s marketing goals. Other benefits of WordPress are you’re not stuck with one company and its proprietary platform or hosting. Its universal nature lets you change hosts, designers, and developers should you ever want to in the future. A redesign does not mean starting from scratch; the content moves with the design.
