So you want to know how to make a website with WordPress – smart move!
WordPress is best known as a blogging platform but it’s grown in popularity as a website platform for both large and small businesses. Here are some reasons why:
Easy to Install
You can simply install WordPress with a few clicks if you have a good hosting program. And the best thing of course is that it’s free!
Easy to Update
One of the features of WordPress is the easy to use visual editor. It’s called a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor. You could compare this type of editor to using Microsoft Word to edit your website as it’s very easy to use and many people catch on how to use it very quickly.
Plenty of Add-Ons
With WordPress you can get add on plugins that increase the functions and change the look of your website. This greatly reduces the cost of having a website with customized features specially designed for you.
There are many ways to customize a WordPress website so that it matches your business and branding. You can add your own logo or header, change the background, add your own colors, add links and more.
What many people who are not familiar with WordPress are unaware of is that you can use the program to create both a website and a blog all on the same URL. This is so much more convenient than having them separate.
Search Engine Friendly
Another great feature of the program is that it can help you optimize your pages and posts for search engines so your site will get found.
If you choose to also have a blog on your website you can work on building a community around your website. Writing blog posts that build relationships with your target market is an effective way to build trust and earn more sales in the long run.
Easy To Change
As businesses grow and change so do their website needs. Most businesses go through a large number of changes. WordPress makes it easy to change your look with themes.
You can add a theme without it affecting your existing pages or blog posts.
