Note : This is a real time story in which I have changed clients name as per the NDA signed.
Though hence I am writing down the challenges and issues why one should not use WordPress going ahead. #nooffence to anyone.
A small business owner named Sara. She had a thriving online store that sold handmade, eco-friendly products. To manage her website, she chose WordPress, a popular content management system known for its user-friendly interface and extensive plugin library.
Over time, as her business grew, Sara noticed that her WordPress site was struggling to keep up. Slow load times, limited customisation options, and poor scalability were holding her back from reaching her full potential. She knew something had to change, and that’s when she discovered the world of React.
In which we are Rootandleaves helped her make a new react website.
The transition wasn’t easy, but with the help of an experienced development team, Sara’s website was reborn. The new React-based site boasted lightning-fast load times and a sleek, modern design that captivated her customers. The user experience was greatly improved, leading to increased sales and better customer retention.
But the advantages didn’t stop there. With React’s component-based architecture, Sara could easily update and manage different sections of her site without disrupting the overall structure. This made it simpler to roll out new features and maintain the website in the long run.
Her development team also integrated a headless CMS, which allowed Sara to manage her content independently of the presentation layer. This flexibility enabled her to update and expand her product catalog with ease, adapting to the ever-changing market demands.
Moreover, React’s SEO capabilities ensured that her website remained visible and accessible to search engines. Her online presence flourished, attracting new customers and boosting her brand reputation.
In the end, Sara’s decision to switch from WordPress to React was a game-changer for her business. The improved performance, enhanced user experience, and greater scalability helped her small online store evolve into a successful, thriving enterprise.
