Just a few years back WordPress was just one of the many CMS-s available and not so much different from the others. At that time it was nothing much to differentiate for those bold enough to go through the hops and use a CMS in their business. Like Joomla, Drupal, Magento and others WP was using a plugin system and was probably notable just for being less focused. While others were targeting specific markets – shops, business membership sites and so on, WP was more of Jack-of-all-trades. Probably this and a somewhat friendlier interface is also the reason WP started to gain more traction into internet marketing businesses territory.
There is no question about it that during the past years WordPress has made more advances than any other CMS. A major part was played obviously by the community, the vast numbers of developers that started to build plugins, free or paid. Having that and the solid WordPress foundation gives us the possibility to build almost any kind of site, simple or complex, static or dynamic, blogs, community-driven memberships sites, custom-function and all in between. And we’re just looking at the tip of the iceberg – a huge number of projects are in development and will help you shape, change and build a WP site in even more ways than we can think at now and most importantly even more easier.
Internet Marketers are some of the most driven online dwellers to experiment, adopt and promote innovation. Easy to see why, time being a valuable asset, any tool that can shave some from the daily routines, make it easier and automate tasks will be always very valuable for anyone. Even more so for busy marketers that struggle to start a business – there are so many things to learn and do that it is so very easy to get overwhelmed.
