We have two preferred methods, the WordPress route and the Laravel route.
WordPress is the world’s most popular content management system. It is easy to use and has a vast community of developers that support it and who write plugins (software that can easily be installed to add extra functionality) specifically for it. However by making modification of WordPress accessible to less experienced users, it leaves them ready to fall into one of the many hidden pitfalls.
We have our own methodology for using WordPress. All our WordPress sites are built using WooCommerce’s Canvas framework and a hand-picked suite of premium plugins that we know we can rely upon. These allow us to deliver a beautiful, functional site with no surprises.
Laravel truly is a developers wet dream. Laravel is a revolutionary PHP framework that incorporates all the best features of the world’s best PHP frameworks in one clean and well thought out architecture that follows the latest considerations of best practice web development. The result is that Laravel websites are unbelievably fast, secure and stable.
We build websites in Laravel completely from scratch and this means that they take substantially longer to build than they would in WordPress. We would recommend Laravel for a website that required a large amount of bespoke functionality or where the site’s loading speed is considered critical.
