And why are so many small businesses using WordPress to power their websites?
Although initially developed to support bloggers, WordPress quickly became one of the best ways for companies to get online quickly and for non-web savvy clients to make their own changes to websites.
Currently, WordPress websites comprise 35 % of all websites on the Internet.
There are literally thousands of WordPress themes that you can use out of the box or customize to your own preference. You can make it as hard or as easy as you want.
You can add photo galleries, blogs, user input forms, all kinds of things. There is a thriving WordPress community producing more themes and plug-ins every day that you can use to customize your site even further.
And when you get tired of the look of your site, you can change it easily by switching up the theme, while keeping the important content that you need.
WordPress websites require no special or expensive software to run. In fact, WordPress websites can be created by anyone with a computer, internet access, and basic computer skills.
If you don’t want to design one yourself, you can hire someone (like us) to make your initial website and we can train you on how to maintain it yourself and make your own minor changes.
And, since you can make your own changes to the site when needed, the days when a multi-thousand dollar effort is required to update website style and content are over for most small businesses.
Search Engine Friendly
You’ve heard of Search Engine Optimization or SEO? WordPress websites are very search engine friendly.
Your website does you no good if people aren’t drawn to it by the search engines.
Search engines LOVE WordPress sites.
Also, since it is easy to update your site, you can change it more often and that makes it more attractive to the search engines as well.
WordPress websites are fun. Just saying.
