Why choose a WordPress Website
Here I outline the best reason to choose a WordPress website
A WordPress website is a great option if you are new to the web. WordPress is an open source content management system. It’s estimated that around 27% of all sites on the Internet are built using it. It’s continually developed and refined by hundreds of people across the globe to ensure it remains one of the best content management tools available.
With a WordPress site, you will have full control over all the editable content on the site. You can updated images and text as needed and add additional content at the touch of a button.
The WordPress system offers many features and benefits:
- It’s open source (free)
- It’s very user-friendly and great for non-techy people
- It’s continually developed and supported so stays steps ahead of hackers and threats
- It’s extendable (there are 1,000s of free plugins that extend its core functionality)
- It’s compliant with web standards
- It’s secure and reliable
- It has great built-in tools for SEO
- Some pretty big brands use WordPress Usain Bolt, SONY, BBC America, The Offical Star Wars Blog and many more
- WordPress beats Joomla and Drupal when it comes to usage
And regarding day-to-day site management:
- Manage all your site content through an easy-to-use editor
- Upload images, PDFs and media files for inclusion on pages
- Manage your site’s navigation and structure
- Write and publish blog articles, so you get found in searches
- Create image galleries
- Create, edit and display contact and other forms
- Manage your SEO
- Integrate with Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and other social networks
- Collect visitor sign-ups for HTML marketing
- Check your visitor stats
- And much more!
One of the biggest benefits of WordPress is that it can be moulded to fit your needs, from a simple business site to an online store. This means your website can grow with your business. You avoid getting to a point where you’ll need to start again with something different.
