It’s currently the most popular CMS platform being used today. Simply put, if you need a website (and you want to maintain it), this nifty tool can do it for you, without breaking the bank.
WordPress has become a highly sought after solution for over 50 million businesses globally who want to self-manage their sites. It’s also scalable, so when your business grows, so can your website.
Wow – its affordable! Due to the open-source technology, there are many features that are either free or inexpensive to implement.
TOP 5 BENEFITS of WordPress:
1. It’s Easy to Maintain
If you can use Microsoft Word, you can use WordPress. Its admin dashboard is intuitive and well laid out, giving you DIY control. Post news, press releases, blog articles, edit pages, or change navigation easily.
2. Add Bells & Whistles
If you want to add more functionality to your site, there are thousands of plugins to make it happen. Things like adding calendars, class registrations, photo galleries, videos, eCommerce, surveys, forms and so much more.
3. SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
WordPress is search engine friendly, and is built in a way that search crawlers can find right out of the box. Which means your audience is more likely to find you. This is important, especially if search is critical to your business.
4. Multiple Users/Publish Anywhere
You can have multiple admin users, so changes can be made by more than one staff member or employee. And since its online, it can be accessed from an internet connection anywhere in the world.
