Changing your website?

Changing your website?

Many business owners hesitate to launch a website because of the high cost of having someone design, build, and maintain a website. We help businesses build their own websites using WordPress. Aside from saving them thousands of dollars, how can businesses benefit from building their sites in WordPress? Is it really that easy?

Many of the businesses I talk to fall into one of two categories:

  1. They don’t have a website, and don’t know how much it should cost, or who to trust; or

  2. They have website, but it’s not really helping their business (it’s a glorified online brochure.) Maybe they even paid thousands of dollars for a nice looking one. The also struggle with updating it. Many times, they have to pay someone every time they want to make a change.

5 Key Benefits of Building Your Website in WordPress

Here are five key benefits of using WordPress for your website:

  1. Themes allow you to change the design of your website quickly. There are thousands of themes available for WordPress.

  2. Plugins allow you to extend the functionality of your WordPress site without knowing how to program. There are over 10,000 plugins available that help you add all kinds of functionality to your site, like social media sharing, SEO, photo slideshows, and much more.

  3. They are easy to update. If you can create a Word document, you can publish a new article to your WordPress website. Once it is set up, you can update it any time you want, and that is important for engagement with your visitors and for the search engines.

  4. Google loves WordPress sites. Because they are updated more frequently, and the content tends to be structured well, you can get a WordPress site ranking very quickly compared to a static website. Google has even gone on record as recommending WordPress for business sites

  5. WordPress is supported by a thriving, engaged community. A recent study estimates that approximately 8% of the sites on the Internet are run by WordPress.
