When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

This concept, formulated by Abraham Maslow, is known as the 'law of the instrument' and it describes a blind over-reliance on a particular tool due to the user's unfamiliarity with other options. We think this law may explain why nearly all the web design companies in Northwest Arkansas offer WordPress exclusively – if it's the only tool in the bag, then it's the only solution that can be presented.

If you call any of the website development companies in our region, you will hear a great deal about WordPress and how it is the perfect option for you. But you will rarely (if ever) hear an honest assessment of the drawbacks and tradeoffs that come with a WordPress solution.

And you will almost certainly never hear that there are other options available.

At Doc4, we have a big tool bag: not only are we experts in WordPress website design, we also offer options other than WordPress. This means we can present a tailored solution to your specific needs, instead of trying to wedge you into the only solution we know how to provide.
