Benefits of using WordPress for your Business Website
WordPress was first released on May 27, 2003. In almost 20 years, WordPress has become the most popular CMS (Content Management System) – with an estimated 75 Million websites on the web today. In fact, as of January, 2021, 39.5% of all websites are WordPress websites. Listed below are the 8 rock-solid reasons why WordPress is so popular and why you should consider a WordPress site for your business.
- Ease of Use
WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface. Depending on the template and page builder being used, adding new pages, BLOG posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done quickly. Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is significantly reduced.
- No HTML Editing or FTP Software Required
WordPress is a self-contained system and does not require html editing software. You can create a new page or blog post, format text, upload images, upload documents, video files, image galleries, etc. all without the need for additional html or ftp software.
- Google Love’s WordPress Sites
The code behind WordPress is very clean and simple, making it easy for search engines, and especially Google, to read and index a site’s content. In addition, each page, post, and image can have its own meta tag keywords, description, and title, and be optimized for specific keywords, allowing for very precise search engine optimization.
- Your WordPress Website is 100% Customizable
WordPress acts as the engine for your website. The look and feel of the site can be 100% customized so your brand can shine through on your site and provide a unique experience to your visitors.
- A BLOG Feature is built-in and Ready-to-Go
Since WordPress was originally created as a blogging platform, blogging capabilities are built-in and are easy to integrate, if desired.
- Extend the Functionality of Your Site with Plugins
Want to add an event calendar, video gallery, Twitter Feed, Facebook Fan Box, and more to your site? WordPress makes this possible with plugins. Today, there are over 54,000 plugins available for WordPress, many of which are free – but the premium plugins are very reasonably priced.
- WordPress is Scalable – Grow as Your Website as Your Business Grows
WordPress sites are very scalable. You can have hundreds of thousands of pages or blog posts on your site and the performance of the site will not be compromised in the least.
- WordPress Keeps Evolving
The final major benefit of using WordPress is that it keeps growing and evolving. And when it does, you get all of the new features for free. WordPress updates and patches are FREE of charge.

The most important thing these days is SERVICE…period. That is, a company provides it, or they don’t! Now don’t get taken like we all have, there are many levels of service from basically nothing (“are you sure you have the device plugged IN and turned ON?” or “I can’t understand what you are saying, can you speak English? or do you even know how to spell WEB PAGE?….totally useless service) to placing the service call, having a human answer the phone that can speak and understand English without a “out on the edge” accent and expeditiously remediate the problem! One that is with you the entire way. In my opinion PWD/NTWD provides the highest level.I have been with NTWD for about 5 years with several Web Sites and numerous email accounts and yes I did have a glitsh, well more it was a change of server. I was on the phone with them and the problem was resolved, just like that! It wasn’t really a problem but a change in configuration, even better.The next most important thing is quality. NTWD provides top quality work. Basically anyone can build a web page or host data or email. Mike at NTWD delivers the best that is possible, always there and only a phone call away….if you happen to need help. SECURITY????? That is a big concern and should be of everyone! I am totally concerned about security but not with my NTWD services. I know they are covered, Mike keeps up with technology.I have a choice and so do you. You want to have a strong and SAFE site and service? Do not go any further, simply go to NTWD. As an overall package (design and service), there is none better.Dang I forgot to mention money, fees, skins, bucks, green backs, dough, bread….etc. You want a strong quality product (and service) for a very reasonable price……. The work is done for you. Go to NTWD. Don’t go anywhere else. If you already have, get your tail to NTWD as soon as you can.

Stellar! Mike and his team overhauled my website lickety split and are always prompt to respond when I need help maintaining the site to make new changes. I appreciate Mike’s personal style of no-nonsense, straight to business, conquer the mountain approach to a goal while at the same time he has a special way to let you know he personally cares about each and every project in a way no other business owner takes time to express.
Kendra Dickson with Gold Buckle Barrel Horses
Over the past 30 years of my career I have had the opportunity to work with a number of IT professionals. I have never worked with someone as good as Mike. He is incredibly responsive even for the smallest requests and makes major changes happen at a very fast pace. I am, repeatedly, impressed every time I have an interaction with him. He is so respectful of his clients and understands, especially with someone like me that has limited IT knowledge and capabilities, how to speak my language so that I understand what is going on. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to drastically improve their IT capabilities and web design whether it be a small company or a large one.
