Welcome to the "back office" of Plan B.

 

You’re here probably asking “How do we provide websites?

 
The “How?” of this question is quickly answered… we develop and provide websites on WordPress.

The history of WordPress is long and much written about. So the question here really becomes more “Why?

For many, WordPress still carries the tag of being a “bloggers app.” In reality, WordPress outgrew this epithet years ago, to become the leading and most popular content management system (CMS) in the world. Today, WordPress is used by tens of millions of sites that publish new posts every second. So this widely used CMS has now become a favorite among businesses because of how powerful and engaging a tool it really is.

Free!

See More

…or a better term is “open source“… freely available… and for evermore will be so. Cool, huh ?
The other advantage of being “open source“, if you’re inclined, you can improve or alter the source code to create the right site for your needs.

Useable right out of the box

See More

Unlike other content management systems, WordPress is ready to use immediately after installation. This means that you don’t have to hunt down, install, and configure a long-list of add-ons just to get many of the features WordPress considers core (comments, RSS feeds, revisions, etc.).

Flexible

See More

The flexibility of WordPress is another feature that can’t be topped. No matter what your website is for – whether as a personal blog or to an ecommerce site, WordPress is versatile enough to meet any and all of your needs through its extensive features and extensions.

Search engine friendly

See More

The most popular search engines actually prefer sites that are powered by WordPress because its framework is easy to crawl.

Safe and secure

See More

Since WordPress is such a popular CMS, it shouldn’t be surprising that it’s a target for hackers. However, WordPress takes the security of its users very seriously. While you can practice some basic security measures, such as not downloading a theme or plugin from an untrusted site, WordPress constantly updates its software to prevent attacks. In fact, WordPress has an automatic update feature ever since the release of version 3.7.

Customisable

See More

Because of the thousands of plugins and themes that WordPress has available to it, it becomes so much easier to customise your site to appear and function as you would like. Furthermore, because of the seemingly endless number of features available, you can create the website or blog as close to your vision as is possible without bespoke and costly design.

Easy to use

See More

Another great perk of using WordPress is how easy it is to use. The platform is user-friendly, intuitive and easy to learn. In fact, you can learn how to use it in a very short time indeed.

Lots of support

See More

WordPress also comes with unprecedented levels of support. This is in part to the extensive WordPress community where you can troubleshoot any question or concern through the WordPress Forums.

Hosts multimedia

See More

The addition of images, video or audio files is a great way to enhance the experience of your users. WordPress makes it easy for you to insert multimedia files into a page or post. Not only is it easy for you to upload multimedia files, you can also edit files, like images, while in the Media Library Screen.

Mobile friendly

See More

It’s more important than ever for a website to be mobile friendly to accommodate smartphones and tablets. With WordPress, however, you don’t have to be concerned over that. It’s already mobile friendly, thanks to many of the themes being responsive.

Integration

See More

WordPress integrates with some of the most powerful platforms available to give your business that additional boost. Need to launch an email campaign? You can use a service like Aweber or MailChimp. Want to get paid for a product or service? WordPress can work with some of the most popular payment gateways in the world.

Easy to manage

See More

WordPress is equipped with a built-in updater for security purposes. So WordPress notifies you whenever there are updates for your themes and plugins. This makes managing your site a breeze, since you’ll always be current on the latest updates. That will keep your site safe and fresh.

More than just a blog

See More

While WordPress earned its reputation as a great blogging platform that can be inserted into an existing website, WordPress itself can be used as a website, because it contains a post and page structure enabling you to have daily blog posts as well as static pages – such as your Contact or About pages.

Saves you money

See More

Because WordPress is “open source” and user-friendly, after a little help getting up and running, you may choose whether to hire web designers or technicians to maintain or update your site.

Numerous eCommerce solutions

See More

If you’re intending using WordPress for a business, then you will be happy to know that there are a number of eCommerce solutions that will convert your site into an all-out digital store. By using plugins like WooCommerceWP eCommerce or Prestashop you can easily begin to grow your business online.

You’re not committed to one hosting provider

See More

If you need to switch a provider or host, either because they can’t handle traffic or you’re just frustrated with them, you can do it without experiencing much downtown. This is because WordPress works with pretty much every server.

Keeps your site looking fresh

See More

Whether you need to update your theme because you’ve had it for too long or you’re looking to take advantage of something like the holiday season, there are thousands of themes to choose from. By doing this you’re keeping the appearance of your site fresh for your customers.

Can be used as a membership service

See More

If you want to continue to grow a loyal fan base, and maybe even make some additional income, then you can convert WordPress into a full-fledged membership site. When you create an exclusive membership site you’re providing members exclusive content they will find useful.

Schedule posts

See More

Running a business is an extremely time-consuming task. However, WordPress can free up some additional time by giving you the ability to schedule posts in advance. This means that whenever you complete a post, you can schedule it during whatever time best suits you and your customers. For example, if you have discovered that the most traffic comes to your site between 12pm to 1pm on weekdays, then you could schedule posts around that time.

Multi-user capability

See More

There’s a very good possibility that you’ll have to rely on multiple people to keep your site up and running. WordPress is aware of this and has made it easy for you to assign different roles for different individuals.

Add testimonials

See More

Assure potential customers that your products or services are worth the investment by including testimonials on your site. You can add this effective technique by installing a plugin like Easy Testimonials or the Testimonials Widget.

Publish content with one-click

See More

Have you just written an article or blog post that you need to publish immediately? No problem. After creating your content, you can publish it with just the click of one-button. Furthermore, there are even a number of mobile apps that allow you to publish your WordPress content no matter where you are.

Universal platform

See More

The WordPress dashboard always looks the same – no matter what you’re using WordPress for. You don’t need to hire experts or spend an excessive amount of time trying to figure out how to use WordPress.

WordPress keeps getting better

See More

Because WordPress hires top-notch developers, you can be certain that it will continue to get better as time goes on. Also, because WordPress is “open source“, any developer can enhance the user experience so that it can become the best CMS available. You can be confident that WordPress is one of the best platforms for your business.
