Here are 5 reasons why WordPress is better:
1. User Friendly

2. Free, and high quality
Wordpress is a crowd sourced project with hundreds of people working around the clock to make it better. WordPress is free, updates (which are free) are frequently released and easy to install (1-click). Considering the rate web coding evolves, it is very nice to have a website that is easily updated. Did I mention WordPress is free?
3. Third Party Developers
Wordpress has an active community of third party plugin developers. These plugins enhance the functionality of WordPress, and most of them are free.
4. Easily Updated
The look and feel of a WordPress website is called a "theme," and is very easy to change. You can install more than one theme and easily switch between them (though changing themes may require some settings to be adjusted). There are hundreds, if not thousands of high-quality themes available for less than $50. This means you can have an amazing website up and running in less than an hour - for under $100. The majority of work is populating the site with content.
Wordpress has been around since 2003, and is extremely popular. It is used by roughly 17% of Alexa Internet's "top 1 million" websites, and as of August 2011, manages 22% of all new websites, making WordPress the most popular content management system on the internet today.
Instead of starting a site from scratch, we start with a fully functional website theme, saving you from having to spend time and money developing a basic website. We then work with you to customize the theme, giving it a unique look and feel that is consistent with your company's branding. New website projects begin with a discovery session to collect project goals & requirements. This information is convert into a detailed project schedule. Taking this important step ensures that everyone is on the same page, and eliminates future headaches for both you and our web developers.
