Common applications of WordPress:
With over 60 million WordPress sites out there, WordPress is the most popular CMS(content management system) out there. WordPress has the capability to act as a blog, and eCommerce store, a forum, and even a basic social media site with the right plugins and design. By far, WordPress is used the most as a CMS for bloggers and content developers, if you have a company and you wish to update your customers about products and promotions, then WordPress can do that for you. The real question is what cant WordPress do? WordPress is perfect for a lot of things, but if you are looking to start a large( more than 100 SKUs) eCommerce site then you might want to ask about Magento. Along the same lines, WordPress has a lot of wonderful customization options, but if you are looking for a truly custom web application then you might want to take a look at Laravel. With that being said, WordPress is very versitile and relatively inexpensive to a Magento store, or a Laravel web application.
