Why Use WordPress to Power Your Small Business Website?
WordPress – an amazingly powerful content management system that is FREE. A content management system is a tool that helps you manage the creation and updates to web pages on your web site. The intuitive, user-friendly back-end of WordPress is probably what made it so famous in the first place. If you can do it in Word, you can do it in WordPress.
WordPress has a lot of power under the hood for a small or medium business looking for an easy way to manage their web site.
SEO – WordPress provides good search engine optimization (SEO) right out of the box. There are a few tweaks you need to make, but there are many seo benefits that WordPress provides for free. In fact Google’s own Matt Cutts says WordPress is “made to do SEO well”.
Content – it is easy to update content on your website without knowing HTML. Do you hate the idea of having to learn to use a complex HTML editor tool like Dreamweaver? Do you have to “ask” your webmaster every time you want to make a small change to your website? Well no longer – once WordPress is set up for you, you can easily create new pages or edit existing pages using a simple rich text editor.
Extensions – There is a thriving ecosystem of developers creating themes and plug-ins – imagine free design themes, or the ability to extend your website with polls, contact forms, ratings or hundreds of other cool features without having to hire a web developer.
Support – If you do have problems, or want to add very custom features, it is easy to find support and developers who can help you. There are literally thousands of WordPress developers out there. And there are so many people writing about WordPress that help is only a Google search away!
