We at The Savvy Socialista are big fans of the WordPress platform for blogging and simple eCommerce sites. We have built several websites in WordPress and our clients couldn’t be happier!  Even our site is WordPress!

Two reasons why people choose WordPress for their web design eCommerce is the variety of add ons or, as we often call them, plug-ins, you can find and the more budget friendly aspect.





Popular WordPress Plug-ins

There are many popular plug-ins and extensions for a WordPress website.  A few we are fans of are the following:

Disqus for comment system.

Yoast or All in One SEO for search engine optimization.  **If you are not using SEO you need to be!  We can help, just reach out to us.

Facebook like box for showing number of people who “like” your website and/or blog.

Pinterest Pin It Button for allowing your readers, shoppers and clients to “pin” what they see and like.

Gravity Forms for increasing social interaction.

WordPress web design eCommerce is recommended for those people who have determined that blogging or having an informational site is their first priority and their second priority is their “shop”.  Typically we advise clients that intend on having more than 100-200 items or items that have a lot of “options” to consider a Magento platform.  You can read more about Magento in this earlier post.  If you are not sure which platform would be best for you we can always discuss your vision and come to a conclusion on what will best fit you and your business.
