Improvements to My Organization
Building custom websites for customers has improved, generating more revenue.
Room for Improvement
Scalability for small websites on shared hosting.
Use of Solution
I've used it for five years.
As website content and number of visits grow, one does recognize scalability issues for websites on shared hosting. I do need to note, howeve,r that Wordpress can be scaled indefinitely, and what I have noted is more a host issue than a Wordpress issue.
Customer Service and Technical Support
There is an excellent Wordpress community. Technical Support
The Wordpress community and the plug-in/theme developers, typically provide outstanding support.
We previously used Joomla (Up to 1.7). I have found Wordpress to be a lot faster and a lot easier both to setup and use.
Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing
There was no cost to using Wordpress for us.
Other Solutions Considered
Installation and usage manuals on the Wordpress.org are really helpful for beginners. In addition, the Wordpress community is outstanding for advice and troubleshooting, so take your time to browse through the various forums.
