Question by IchSprecheDeutsch: How many web design companies use wordpress as a cms?
How many web design companies use wordpress as a cms? Like companies who design websites around existing (or custom) wordpress templates… I know there are a ton of internet businesses selling themes, but I am wondering about the actual custom web design companies out there… Thanks!
Hah, just to clarify… I mean, like a restaurant business wants a website, so they go to a design company and pay a good amount of money for a website, -are alot of these companies just designing around wordpress themes? Thanks…

Not necessarily, and there is nothing about WordPress themes that makes them specific to WordPress apart from a few bits of code that can easily be changed. Most of the sites I do are built using a PHP framework with the rest being implemented in Drupal. Only my own personal site runs WordPress.

    Lots of web firms offer the customization of WordPress, some even are big into myspace layout designing too.

    There is nothing wrong using wordpress as a cms, some ways it can make the job easier and more affordable.

    I have seen lots of web designers even use ning nowadays and customize it. You have lots of options.

    We get allot of customers who need a website with WordPress as the content management system. The plugins help make that easier for functionality. We charge a starting estimate of $ 350 for custom wordpress themes.

    WordPress is also recommended to all of our clients for seo purposes. Our website uses a custom wordpress theme on our blog section and it drives the most traffic via search engines. So the actual use of it as a CMS is just good marketing sense.

    I work for a marketing firm and we build a lot of “small-business” or entrepreneurial websites – restaurants, independent financial consultants, real estate agents, etc. We have white-labeled WordPress, and are “packaging” it with our basic websites as an added bonus. We still do awesome custom designs, but then we just build them out as a theme for WordPress and we feel like that not only speeds up development time (since we cut our content-entry time in half), but it also gives the client a really good experience. Sort of an “above and beyond” approach, if you will.
