There are others of course! But we think that WordPress and Laravel are the best that there are to offer – but you do you! Let’s go through the pros and cons, Laravel vs WordPress.
35% of all websites on the web are WordPress. Wow! WordPress is everywhere, there are tens of thousands of themes and plugins available for download, and it’s probably the easiest way to get a site up and running in 2020.
WordPress is easily accessible and allows for quick website management and deployment. Everyday normal people can manage their own websites from anywhere at anytime.

Laravel is the most used framework to create web applications in the US, it’s a PHP object-oriented framework that come bundled with the functionality of authentication (including registration/login) and routing.
There’s no clear answer or decision to the question of WordPress vs Laravel, because it depends on what you need and how you want the client or customer to view your business and the services that you offer. They’re both powerful frameworks, however WordPress and Laravel have much different build processes and results.
Please contact Busybee Marketing if you have any questions on which one to choose (and why). We’re here to help you and your company succeed.
