10 Reasons To Use WordPress

  • WordPress is free. Yep, you heard me right.  WordPress costs you nothing.  All you need is a webhost and a domain name.  WordPress becomes your site.  Originally designed for blogs, WordPress has evolved into arguably the greatest content managment system available.  And, it’s free.  Beat that, expensive web designer from 1997.
  • IT’S SO EASY TO USE. Yeah, you used to have to have your web guy do all the updating for you.  There are still some things you need a web guy for (otherwise I wouldn’t be around), but you don’t need one every time you want to add something to your site.  If you can use Microsoft Word, you can use WordPress.
  • TEMPLATES, TEMPLATES. TEMPLATES! Not ready to pay big bucks for a custom design?  No problem.  There are literally thousands of WordPress templates that are a cinch to install, with more being released all the time.
  • SEARCH ENGINES LOVE IT!. Your friends, the search engines, love WordPress.  Mostly because WordPress sites are updated often, but you can add some powerful tweaks to WordPress that make the search engines just eat it up.
  • YOU ARE IN CONTROL. As popular as they are, the multiple template-with-hosting combo sites that are springing up all over the web are not the best use of your time or money.  You host on their server, using their template.  And compared to what you pay for web hosting, these sites charge astronomical fees.  Like 10x what you should pay for web hosting.  And they really do nothing for you.  Keep control with your own site on your own hosting account.
  • VIDEO AND AUDIO INTEGRATE BEAUTIFULLY. OK, what business doesn’t want to use audio and video on their site.  With WordPress, it can’t get any easier.  Thanks to years of development and improvement, it’s as simple as clicking a button to add audio and video to your site.  Just make sure that audio and video is going to drive some traffic where you want it!
  • SOCIAL TOOLS INTEGRATE EASILY. Want to add your site updates to Twitter?  Or Facebook?  Not a problem.  Easy as pie.
  • RSS IS YOUR FRIEND. It’s still a mystery to most people, but having your site built on WordPress gives you automatic RSS feed creation.  Easy to syndicate your content to multiple sites, and drive that most important component, traffic.
  • EASY TO UPGRADE. Before, if you wanted to upgrade your site, you basically had to rebuild it from the ground up.  With WordPress, you’re just a few clicks away from having access to the latest developments and improvements.
  • LAST, BUT NOT LEAST… use WordPress.  For almost everything!  Nearly every site that we build is based on WordPress.  That should be enough of a recommendation, don’t ya think?
