Considering the many different technology options for building a website, it can be tough to pick the right one, especially if you aren’t a website person.
Currently, there are no other content management systems that can match the “out of box” functionality and flexibility that WordPress brings to the table, and there are a few reasons why this is unlikely to change anytime soon.
One of the biggest factors tipping the scale to favor WordPress is the giant open source community, which constantly develops new (and often times, FREE) plugins and themes you can incorporate into your site to add new functionality.

For example, if you wanted to add a photo gallery to display pictures in a specific way, just search the plugin library until you find the right one. Or, say you wanted to build a fully enabled eCommerce website? Just find the right cart solution (we LOVE Jigoshop) and theme and you are ready to sell.
Another benefit of WordPress is fact it is reliable, and updating it to the latest version from the back of your website takes less than a minute. Compared to a custom solution from a small firm, with WordPress you know your CMS will always be at the forefront of technology and security. With other custom content management solutions, you can’t really be so sure.
