The Benefits of Migrating Your Website to WordPress

August 14, 2023
By Matthew Golda

At MSEDP, we can help you migrate your old site over to a brand-new WordPress site. With our expertise, we can create a custom website with all of the bells and whistles one would expect with a new WordPress site. Over the years, the popularity of WordPress has only grown. That fact is down to the many benefits you get with a website on their platform. So, if you are thinking about upgrading your website, turn to the pros at MSEDP today. We can help you with all of your website needs and build you a brand-new site using the tools afforded to us by WordPress. Let's take a look at the benefits of a WordPress migration and why it is the smart choice for many businesses.

Easy to Use

Many people consider WordPress to be the most user-friendly content management system out there. It is quick and easy to manage and does not require an extensive knowledge of coding for managing the content, which also depends on the simplicity of the builder used for the website. At MSEDP, we excel in creating user-friendly WordPress websites and allowing you to take over and easily manage the website afterwards. WordPress makes it easy for any staff to publish new posts and pages, edit some of the content, resize images and more. And your IT team will be able to effectively handle the backend, like updating the website and software when needed. Of course, the team at MSEDP is always there and can help with various tech and web services, such as content writing and cybersecurity.

WordPress DashboardLots of Customization with Plugins

There are thousands of potential plugins to use for a website on WordPress and many of them are free or fairly cheap to use. So, depending on the type of website and business you have, we can help customize the website with the perfect plugins. Some common types of plugins include ecommerce, social media integration, galleries for images, slide shows, form processing, and forums. But there are almost limitless ways you can expand and improve your website when you migrate over to a WordPress website by utilizing their plugins. With WordPress comes ultra customization, which is a great benefit for any business. You are not a slave to any old CMS. With WordPress, you have the upper hand and have many great plugins to use.

Custom Designs & Layouts

Piggybacking off of the customization with plugins, WordPress also offers many different ways to customize your website with different builders and templates. At MSEDP, our web design team can work with you to build the perfect website. A website that aligns with your aesthetic, displays your brand, and showcases your company values. As well of course as one that makes it clear what your business does and lead your audiences to your services and sales.

As long-time designers of WordPress websites, we can help you narrow down the options and land on the perfect design. We will take the time to go through many of the design options, giving you the ability to find something that you love. Not something you feel you are stuck with.

Free Elements

Using WordPress does not tie you to a CMS that requires a monthly subscription or an annual maintenance fee. Whether it is a simple security patch or a major update, other CMS platforms make you have to pay your provider to update the website. So if you currently are paying for any updates on another CMS, migrating to WordPress eliminates that needless expenditure. WordPress offers free, open-source software and there is no charge to simply exist.

Of course, a certain amount of updating is required to keep your website running well and you can choose to pay for some features, but you will not need to pay WordPress for simple updates if you do not want. However, you can pay MSEDP for hosting services. For a nominal fee we can run and manage your WordPress website. Making sure it is always updated and running at top speed, as well as being protected against malicious threats.

Great for Search Engine Optimization

The coding behind a WordPress site makes it easy for search engines to properly index all of the pages on the website. WordPress also features simple URL structures, which is an aspect that Google and other search engines like and helps with the SEO. On top of all that, there are some great plugins to help manage the SEO of the website, like Yoast and Rank Math. These plugins are simple enough for you to use on your own. However, MSEDP also offers professional SEO services to help grow your business. And migrating over to WordPress allows you to unlock these SEO benefits. With MSEDP, we can manage the SEO of your website and build out with custom content tailored to your business.

Great Scalability and Longevity

A WordPress website is highly scalable, which mean you can extend the functionality of it when you need to by adding new features. So you can start your website in one place and over the years grow it into something more by adding more features. When you migrate over to WordPress, you do not need to make these decisions all at once. If you think you might want to add ecommerce to your website you can, but you can also do it when you believe the time is right.

Did your business grow in an unexpected way? No problem! It is easy to adapt when you are using WordPress. As long as you put in sufficient hosting, your website can handle large amounts of data without it negatively impacting the performance. Continue to add pages, posts and images for as long as you want. These features allow your WordPress website to have a longevity that you could not achieve anywhere else. Grow and develop your business over time with WordPress!

Built-In Blog

In the beginning days of WordPress it was simply a place to blog, but has expanded into much more over the years since its inception. However, due to its origins, it still has excellent blogging capabilities. Blogs are great because they are a simple way to add new content to your website without needing to add different elements to the website. Blogs also keep your website fresh in the eyes of Google, which is a boon for the SEO of the website. At MSEDP, we can take on this task if you feel it is too much on your own. We will thoroughly research topics and post blogs to help keep your site active and growing in scale.

Access to Developers

Due to its continuing popularity and distribution, WordPress greatly benefits from its vast community of developers who are always looking to improve the platform. Many more developers and coders are proficient in WordPress than other CMSs, so you can always look to the community for help. And due to this large, thriving community, companies can feel confident that they are in safe hands for the future when they migrate their website to WordPress. Not only can you entrust your WordPress website to MSEDP, you can also rest easy knowing that there is a large community of developers on various tasks. Keeping the community as a whole safe.
