WordPress for Big Business

Published on

Every project has its own unique requirements–some of them more “unique” than others. And sometimes the solution sits right under our noses.

Such is the case with WordPress. Everyone knows it excels as a blogging platform. No one would think twice about implementing it as a CMS for a small business. But what about using it for nationwide projects with daily users are anticipated to grow to the thousands?

Can WordPress actually go beyond its reputation as a small-site CMS? Or are the myths more founded than fiction?

In this presentation, we explore the big business applications of WordPress, sharing how we’ve used it in the past and shining light on its potential. Designed to help web entrepreneurs think outside the obvious, we’ll discuss the opportunities WordPress presents for big business, tips for pitching WordPress, and the best practices we’ve discovered along the way.

After all, there is one limiting factor of WordPress: your imagination.
