Taking Your Business Online With WordPress

by Jeremy Miller, Technician
If you have thought of creating a website or currently have one that is difficult to edit then you need WordPress.

With WordPress, you can easily create, modify, and update your website with more features than you could ever imagine.

WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS), which allows you to easily manage all content on your website.

This includes any sort of content such as web pages, blog posts, videos, music, and much more.

You are able to create users or even have people create user accounts themselves, with a default permission that you can set. You will not have to pay a website designer or a webmaster to add, remove, or modify any of your content.

There are hundreds of free themes that you can choose from to make your site unique. There are also many premium themes that private and professional developers create and sell. These themes often look better and have much more functionality.

WordPress has thousands of plugins from which to choose. These plugins can help you do anything from Search Engine Optimization (SEO), shopping carts, forums, maps, to automation of content generation.

Plugins can come in handy if the theme that you chose does not have a feature that you want.

WordPress is optimized for SEO, out of the box. There are also plugins that will help you optimize your site further such as All in One SEO Pack, Google XML Sitemaps, and Rich Snippets.

These plugins will make it easier for Google to crawl the site and this will bring your site up in the search results ranking.

WordPress is easy to manage, add new content, and secure as well. You can download various management plugins. There are plugins that will guide you through the administration aspects of your site. The system can email an alert if there are any issues with or someone comments on your website.

Adding new content is as easy as creating a document in Microsoft Word. In fact, anything that you create in Word can be copied and pasted directly into WordPress.

WordPress is extremely scalable; this will allow you to continue to use WordPress no matter how large your business grows.

The latest features and options will always be an update away. Of course, WordPress will let you know what needs to be updated every time that you login.
