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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  • Mike – I just received the best compliment on our site. Two  80 year old sisters were looking for a realtor to list their family farm. They called me a few days ago and I sent them to my site to look it over. She just called and said they were extremely impressed with my site and did not  plan on interviewing any other realtors.

    Thank you for doing a fantastic job!

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.
