10 Unusual types of websites you should use WordPress for
If you run a web design agency or you are a freelancer, once in a while a client might contact you with an unusual request. Not for a small website for a grocery shop around the corner or a portfolio website to show his/her photography skills, instead this client asks for a website with very specific functionalities.
He/she might be thinking about running a video blog, or starting a crowdfunding or coupon website. This client might as well be a real estate agent looking for an opportunity to beat the competition with a brand new real estate website.
My point is, sometimes your client needs something else, something larger, something specific. Most of the time it’s all about functionality, less about design. If that’s the case case, using a WordPress theme and/or plugins would be the way to go.
For every of the following types of websites we have selected the very best themes available.
