Here are just a few reasons you would choose WordPress to design your website!
- Forever Free
WordPress is an Open Source software which basically means it is free to the public.
- One Click Installation
There are many hosting options that offer this feature. (We recommend BlueHost or JustHost)
- Plugging Into Plugins
New plugins are being developed for WordPress every day that will help you do just about anything you can imagine. These plugins are designed to enhance your website and automate many common features.
- As Easy As 1-2-3 To Use
You don’t have to know HTML code to run a WordPress website. If you have used Word or any other word processor than you can publish content using WordPress, and you can do this instantly.
- Designing All By Myself
WordPress has unlimited possibilities, but most people do not have unlimited funds. That’s okay! I won’t say that it is as easy as learning to tie your shoe laces, but it isn’t impossible either.
Not only will managing your own website save you money, it will also save you time. You don’t have to call or email a webmaster and then wait for them schedule a time to have your problem fixed or your site created.
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO) adds Value
Having a website that is easy to find is usually the goal of any website. WordPress uses coding that is search engine friendly. This means that you don’t have to have technical skills to show up in search results. Matt Cutts, who is currently the head of the web spam team at Google, once said, “Google Loves WordPress” for SEO.
- WordPress gives the flexibility of having multiple users with varying levels of authorizations.
This option enables highly configurable roles defined as:
Super Administrator – Access to the blog network administration features controlling the entire network.
Administrator – Access to all the administration features.
Editor – Can publish and manage posts and pages as well as manage other users’ posts, etc.
Author – Can publish and manage their own posts.
Contributor – Can write and manage their posts, but cannot publish them.
Subscriber – Can only manage their profile which means read comments, make comments, receive newsletters and announcements, etc.
- Visual Editor and The paste From Word Tool
Visual Editors let you see the text being edited while it is being edited. This feature of WordPress helped to make it so popular. If you can send an email and attach a photo then you can publish on WordPress.
- Designed for Blogging
Even though it can be used in many other ways, WordPress was designed for blogging. Because of this original goal, the numerous blogging features are easy to use. This allows anyone in your organization to update your content on a regular basis with ease.
- Unlimited Page Possibilities
WordPress allows unlimited pages, post, galleries, and anything else you want to add to your website. This means that as your business grows you can easily make additions to your website to reflect this growth.
- Secure And Safe
WordPress security updates happen all the time. Another 1 click option is available for this.
- As of this moment, there are a reported 64,926,610 WordPress websites in the world.
