    I want to sew clothes. Why is it good to use an existing sewing machine rather than designing and building one myself? – whatsisname Jan 11 '19 at 6:17

The big advantage of using an existing CMS (content management system, like Wordpress) compared to developing your own is that you don't have to invest the effort to develop your own. What's the point in doing that? Wordpress already exists. Startups especially don't have a lot of time and money to spare; they need that to develop the thing they're actually planning to make money with.

Wordpress in particular is time-proven, flexible thanks to many available plugins, and extensible in that if some functionality is missing, you can write your own plugin with much less effort than creating something from scratch.

As a general rule, unless it's about your core competency (i.e. the thing you specifically want to make money with), try to use something existing instead of developing it yourself. Unless your company specifically wants to make CMSs or complex web sites that go beyond the capability of common CMSs, don't write one.
