WordPress has been around for almost a decade now and has grown into the most popular blog platform, but in recent years has become a very popular CMS (Content Managing System), rising as the best choice for simple, reliable and easily manageable websites.
There are plenty of reasons why more and more businesses choose WordPress-based websites, ranging from its ease of use, being cost-effective, to its security and dependability as a base for a professional and interactive online presence. This article will serve to explain the main benefits of having a WordPress site for your business.
1.Ease of Use
If you know how to use your email account or Microsoft Word, you will probably have no problem managing a WordPress-based site. Whether you want to add some new information or post an update it’s as easy as it gets. The layout is simple and convenient, making it easy to quickly become acquainted with managing everything.
It can also be built in a relatively short time, compared to the lengthy process of creating a regular website.
2. Manage it From Anywhere
WordPress’ CMS (Content Managing System) is browser-based and doesn’t need any HTML editing or FTP software. That means that you can login from any computer and manage your site. You can even login with your smartphone and make changes while on the move.
3. Constant Development
Since its open-source and extremely popular, there are many developers working on new themes, designs and plug-ins that help keep WordPress up-to-date with all the latest advances.
This guarantees that WordPress will never be outdated and always will be improving.
4.Google Loves It!
Because of the simple layout and because it’s a blog, WordPress is loved by Google and other search engines, thus can quickly become indexed and rise in the search engine rankings.
This is very important in this time, when battle for rankings in search engines is as fierce as ever.
There probably isn’t a cheaper way to set-up a website for your business than with WordPress. With almost no coding needed, the cost usually is limited to hiring a professional to correctly install everything and individualize it to fit your personal needs.
On some instances there may be some additional costs, but they are very insignificant, compared to the amounts that go into building a regular website, that would probably be much harder to manage and would require regular webmaster services for updating.
Coming into the year 2012, WordPress has established itself as the probably the most popular option as a website for businesses, and with good reason. It’s user-friendly, cheap and can be launched quickly, while delivering high quality and huge possibilities to customize it to fit any individual needs.
