Should you use WordPress or build a custom website?

So you are in the market for a new website.

The question is, should you build it from scratch or use something like WordPress to create it? Let’s outline a fairly generic scenario:

  1. You need a new website
  2. You are on a budget, so cost is an issue
  3. Functionality beyond just an “online brochure” is needed
  4. You want control of your website
  5. An eye catching design that looks professional is very important to you
  6. You don’t want to wait 6 months to launch it

Sound familiar? You are not alone.
