WordPress is great--we use it for our blog.
Founder & CEO - ShipHero
Our website is WordPress based. We’re revamping the website in a week. Through that WordPress system, we have an active blog where we post every week or two and then disseminate across social platforms. We focus on Google Ads and PPC campaigns. Not necessarily to drive tons of traffic to our website in terms of conversion, but mostly to create brand recognition and meet search SEO requirements. In our company, we connect with enterprise leads who wouldn’t necessarily reach out to get a quote through a Google search but need to be able to search & find us.
Co-founder & Chief Business Officer - Wizer
Our own self-posted blog based on WordPress.
Founder & CEO - Postman
We use WordPress for our blog.
Co-founder & CEO - Brosa
Now with WordPress, we’ve integrated our own tracking script, Google Analytics, Segment, and Intercom so people can talk to us while reading.
Co-founder - Salesflare
We use WordPress on the company blog, and an SEO plugin called Yoast. Yoast is SEO for complete idiots, so it’s great for me. You smash in your keywords, and it gives you the ticks and crosses of whether you’ve used them enough and in the right places.
Founder - Better Proposals
We have a WordPress blog--it’s very easy to use.
Co-founder - Flutter Social
We use WordPress for our corporate blog. We’ve installed a couple plugins to make sure we’re hitting the right SEO.
Founder & CEO - SendBird
WordPress allows non-technical staff to create their own content. The less we have to bother our engineers, the better for us.
Co-founder & CEO - Ubidots
I love WordPress. I’ve been using it for many years. I wish it had a better design on the backend, but it’s really the best thing out there in terms of SEO management. It doesn’t get much better than this.
Founder & CEO - FoodTrace
We are happy with WordPress.
Head of Platform - WaystoCap
Our blog is hosted on WordPress. I like WordPress because it is very scalable and easy to use. There is a management trade off between things that are built in-house and things that do not require dev resources. WordPress is a great compromise because anyone can upload and maintain content.
Founder & CEO - Travefy
WordPress has been great.
Founder & CEO - Yesware
We use WordPress for our press page, which we had to set up with our engineering team. Now that it is set up, anyone can use it.
CEO - Go Pollock
Most of our website is based on WordPress. A third of the internet runs on it. WordPress is ubiquitous--lots of people know how to develop on it without having to start from scratch.
Co-founder & CEO - GMB Fitness
We have a blog on WordPress, hosted on DigitalOcean, because it is a struggle to get engineering resources for this purpose. I managed the WordPress install. In DigitalOcean, they have tutorials for nontechnical people. WordPress is pretty bloated and would slow down our site.
Marketing Director - Clarifai
We have a WordPress website but have held off on creating a blog outside of the “News” section of our site. Focusing on functionality of the e-commerce experience has been our first priority.
Co-founder & CEO - Olika
We have a blog in WordPress.
Co-founder & CEO - Kompyte
We were familiar with WordPress before using it for Revelr. It’s user-friendly and gets the job done. We’re now contemplating other options for trying to better integrate our blog into our site.
Co-founder & CEO - Revelr
Our website is in WordPress and we keep a blog in there.
Co-founder & CEO - Yalty
We have a WordPress blog. It’s pretty intuitive--everyone uses it, but it is always an open gate for hackers. For this reason we have it on a different server, so that it doesn’t compromise our website.
Founder & CEO - Sponsoo
Our Website hosts our blog. It’s running WordPress.
CTO - Optoro
Our website is in WordPress and we have a blog, but it is a little light at the moment.
Alain van Gils
Co-founder & CEO - T-shaped
Our website is running on WordPress--it works great for us.
CEO & Founder - Reply
WordPress is our blog platform.
Founder & CEO - Velasca
Our website is in WordPress; that is how we created our blog. We teach WordPress, and our website is a good way to showcase the flexibility of it.
CEO - HackerYou
It’s a common platform but there is a need to keep updating the plugins, which is quite troublesome.
Product Marketing Director - Nugit
We have our website and our blog in WordPress. It is excellent when you get the hang of it. The flexibility is great.
Co-founder & CEO - Proximi.io
Our site is built in WordPress.
Founder & CEO - Yobi
WordPress is good--it does what it needs to do.
CEO & Co-founder - Moringa School
Our website is on WordPress and we blog from there.
Co-founder & CEO - Breeze
We use WordPress for our blog.
Founder - SnapEDA
Pricing is good and it is nice that they manage all the upgrades.
CEO - Scripted
WordPress could be a pain to admin, and uses PHP which is not preferable. Over WP I would choose Ghost which is written in NodeJS. Both have the option that you pay for it and it’s hosted for you, with many plugins to extend it. If you expect a lot of guest blog entries, or want a simple editor submission tool, you might want to use WP or Ghost.
Co-founder & CEO - Moesif
We have a blog on WordPress. We were thinking of switching to Medium, but since we have about a 100 posts in WordPress, we may not do it because of potential lost SEO rankings. One of the problems of WordPress is that it puts ads to other people posts (via snip.ly). We are using the hosted portfolio. We like SaaS apps that we do not have to deploy ourselves.
CEO & Co-founder - Pyze
Our blog is on WordPress. It works fine.
Founder - Nicely Noted
We use the WordPress database and CMS to manage our customers.
Founder - Nicely Noted
WordPress is very handy. It is great for blogging. The downside is that you need a developer to do the updates correctly.
Co-founder & CEO - Recruitee
We use WordPress for our blog posts, and then we cross-post them onto Medium. We’re doing a bit of A/B testing for our content strategy right now. Product managers in our market love writing and sharing on Medium, so we have to participate in both ecosystems given the stage of our company.
Co-founder & CEO - Roadmunk
We host our parenting magazine on WordPress. WordPress is decent for a blog and you can buy a template and get it going very easily. It’s got a lot of features to solve a lot of different problems.
Founder & CEO - Sproutling
We do a lot of our content marketing through our email campaign. Our WordPress blog is not a big thing that we do right now.
Founder - BabyBin
We love WordPress.
Co-founder & CEO - Student Loan Hero
We use WordPress for our blog, but you have to stay on top of the security updates very religiously. It is not very secure, so it is firewalled from the rest of our site for that reason.
CMO - TaskEasy
WordPress works fine. It is an industry standard.
Marketing Director - FreshGrade
We really like WordPress. I think the most important aspect of WordPress is the vibrant developer community. That’s the main attraction.
Co-founder & CEO - Strainz
WordPress works pretty well. We’ve actually moved from a lot of our WordPress to Twitter’s platform, Bootstrap.
Founder - Magical Butter
We use WordPress for our core blog CMS that ties into HubSpot so our content marketing is a WordPress/HubSpot stack. I’ve been using HubSpot for the past 7 years on different projects to varied degrees of success. Their offering has improved a lot over the last few years. We recommend them to all companies, including those in our program. It’s a solid automation tool.
Founder & Managing Director - StartupRunner
We have our own custom app, but our blog is on WordPress.
Founder & Chief Instructor - iLoveCoding
We used to have our blog on Tumblr but we recently have moved to WordPress. Tumblr was good and easy to set up and get going. But as our needs and requirements grow, the blog needed to be more branded and easy to customize, so it was a better thing to move it to WordPress. We constantly post about driving safety on our blog.
Co-founder & VP Data - Zendrive
WordPress is doing its job.
CEO - Mention
WordPress is great--it serves the purpose quite well. We can add features and functionality with plugins.

We use WordPress for blogging and sharing free resources. It’s super simple to use and there are a million plugins that make WordPress the best content marketing platform on earth.
Founder & CEO - MySiteAuditor
Our entire web interface is in WordPress.
Founder - Engine
Funding Portal has a WordPress blog called the Funding Report media platform. WordPress is very user-friendly, so we can quickly post updates on funding news and announcements every day of the week.
Founder & CEO - Funding Portal
We use WordPress for our own site and for our customers. We mainly stick to an inbound strategy, but we’ve created a few white papers. We do a few email campaigns that we run through MC.
Co-founder & CEO - Careerleaf
We like WordPress; it is very easy to use and has powerful SEO capabilities.
Co-founder - LivePoll
Our website is built in WordPress. Since we updated our server in PHP 7, it’s really fast. It does a good job handling different authors that manage different parts of the website.
Founder - ZipBooks
We started off building simple WordPress websites and ended up getting deeper and deeper into the community. Our client base is very familiar with WordPress and this platform addresses the majority of our project requirements with the necessary workflow and administrative customizations.
Founder - Neumarkets
Our blog was originally on Tumblr, and now it’s on WordPress to give us more control over the look and functionality.
Co-founder - Rocksbox
WordPress has been great, and we have it integrated with Pardot.
Co-founder & CEO - Concord
I don’t manage it directly, but I know our team uses WordPress. They sometimes have issues with design, and it’s not super easy to customize anything in WordPress.
Founder & CEO - TechnoRides
All of our articles are posted on WordPress.
Co-founder & CEO - LeafLink
Our site and blog are on WordPress.
Co-founder & CEO - DOZ
Our blog is hosted on WordPress. It’s pretty easy to customize, and it’s super easy to post via WordPress. There are lots of plugins available as well, which is nice.
Director of Marketing - Smart Lunches
WordPress is a little dated.
Founder & CEO - Wizeline
Currently, we’re using WordPress, but we might build our own proprietary system in the future for security reasons.
Founder & CEO - SprinkleBit
WordPress is our primary platform for content.
VP Marketing - Extole
A lot of our content marketing is oriented around graphs generated by our code base. We have WordPress installed on the server, and our blog posts are on WordPress.
Co-founder - BuildZoom
WordPress seems to work. We just did a big rebuild of our website, removed a lot of the customization we had added over the years, and got back to a native WordPress experience. We’re pretty happy with it now.
Co-founder - FullContact
Our blog is hosted on WordPress, which is our primary content management system.
Co-founder & CEO - AdStage
We use WordPress, and WordPress plugins, heavily.
Founder & CEO - Good&Co
We host our blog on WordPress.
Co-founder & CEO - SpeakUp
WordPress automatically emails our blog subscribers when we post something new to the blog. It has a slick feature where it auto-sends to a pre-defined MailChimp list when we post a new blog post.
Co-founder & CEO - SpeakUp
We’re using WordPress out of the box, with a few customizations.
Director of Product - Insurify
We use WordPress for every website and blog we manage.
Founder & CEO - Arment Dietrich
Our website and blog are on WordPress.
Co-founder & Co-director - Boomtown Accelerator
WordPress is good. But make sure you don’t customize it too much, or you’ll end up working on it all the time.
Founder & CEO - Roomi
Right now, our website is on WordPress. We went from WordPress, to Drupal, to Squarespace, and back to WordPress. This time around, we were able to develop a hyper-customized backend that allows us to easily organize and upload content, which is crucial for us to keep all the moving pieces of what we do represented accurately. It’s also simple enough so teams can keep their own info up to date!
COO - Venture for America
We use WordPress for our blog. We like that it’s easy to add widgets, and easy to customize.
Head of Marketing - Pipedrive
We use WordPress for our site and microsites, and it’s good. We used Tumblr when we started, which was great, but WordPress has allowed us to build out the site more, with the customizations that we want. It’s also generally easier to find WordPress developers to work on the site.
Founder & CEO - Museum Hack
We don’t do a lot of content marketing right now, but we do have a WordPress blog. We are looking to change to a different platform though because WordPress makes it hard to make it your own.
Co-founder - Monarq
Both our website and blog are on WordPress, hosted on WP Engine.
Co-founder & CEO - Rollout.io
We started out using Medium for our blog, but switched to WordPress. We wanted to drive traffic to our own site, and we noticed that linking to Medium drove traffic to Medium, not to us. People would read our content, but we also wanted them to engage with our website and understand our product. One of my co-founders is experienced with WordPress so we got it set it up quickly. Medium is much more visually pleasing, but WordPress works well for us.
Co-founder - Croissant
We are running a self-hosted version on Amazon Cloud to save on hosting prices. We chose WordPress because the co-founder, who is in charge of content, was most familiar with WordPress. They have an ecosystem for blogging and their SEO is great. Our blog has been up for 7 weeks and it is already listed on Google search.
Co-founder & CTO - Tutorlist
I actually teach courses on WordPress through the digital and social media certificate program at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies! WordPress is great for content creation and management, but it’s not as intuitive as Wix or Squarespace. That said, if you want a more sophisticated website, WordPress is best. But know that you need to take the time to learn it. You should spend 4-6 hours sitting there, clicking through, and going through tutorials on a site like Lynda.com to get the most out of it.
President - Martin Waxman Communications
Our blog is based on WordPress. It’s been around for so long, it has an enormous ecosystem. So if there’s anything you need, it’s already been built.
Founder & CEO - Oktopost
We use WordPress for our blog. We were on the hosted version for a long time, and it was really good, but it was somewhat limited. You couldn’t add other analytics besides WordPress’s analytics, which was problematic. So we switched to a self-hosted install of WordPress. We were dreading the migration, but they were amazing, and it turned out to be an incredibly easy process.
VP of Product Development - RescueTime
Our website is built on WordPress.
Founder & CEO - Shoppimon
We use WordPress as our content management system to update pages on our blog and support pages. You have to be an expert to work with it. You have to go into the setup process knowing that there are customizations that require an engineer or developer. It took us some time to get it up and running, but since we’ve started using it, it’s been okay.
Co-founder & CEO - Comeet
We manage all internal content on WordPress. We’ve been happy WordPress users in this venture, and in all prior ventures. I would find it hard to shift to anything else.
CEO & Founder - x.ai
We use WordPress for our blog, and it’s great. It’s been around for a while, so we’re used to using it, and it’s always given us a good experience.
Co-founder & CEO - Veed.Me
Customized WordPress templates work really well.
CEO - Zumper
WordPress is the standard for all Impact Hubs right now.

Founder & CEO - messageLOUD
We’ve been working in WordPress as our content management system. The pros are ease of use, development, and low cost; it’s really awesome.
CEO & Founder - DK New Media
Our site runs on WordPress, and it also serves as the content management system for our blog. I also always recommend WordPress to entrepreneurs; it’s so easy to find WP developers and support from the WP communities. There are also a ton of plug-ins and add-ons available for WP that don’t require custom development to pull off.
VP of Marketing - Unbounce
We use WordPress for our marketing site.
Co-founder - Quill
