Talk to enough small business owners who run their own business website, and you will understand what frustration sounds like. You’ll hear from business owners who have spent three hours on their website just to figure out how to get the content update through that they want, ones who’ve managed to somehow completely delete everything on their website three times a month, and ones who are going bankrupt paying a webmaster to do all the hard work for them. This is the reason why WordPress for business is so popular. WordPress features a free but powerful content management system that just works.
Some people think that WordPress for business just doesn’t work, because WordPress is a blogging platform – not a website building platform.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. While WordPress is made for blogging, any skilled theme builder will often have beautiful website-like themes ready to go, that are great for your business. You wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. It would cost you maybe $50 to buy a theme like that. It would take you maybe 5 min. to install it, and you be good to go.
You know, when the Internet first got its start 15 years ago or so, content management systems would sell for a quarter-million dollars. Now, it’s yours for free. And it’s more powerful than any of those expensive systems of yore. You know what – WordPress for business, especially small business, is so brilliant because it’s almost as if WordPress were custom-built for small businessmen who have no time, no money and who really need results yesterday.
To begin with, small business owners really fret about their SEO. They hear everyone telling them that they need to invest in SEO, but they don’t really know how much our how. They end up wasting a lot of money. Know what Google says? Google says that WordPress is literally built for good SEO. You can get great SEO results with WordPress just right out of the box with almost no effort.
Google has plenty of plug-ins to help you achieve good SEO or anything else; and if you don’t know how to use one, or if you don’t know which one to use, WordPress has a rich tradition of community help. There are thousands of WordPress experts everywhere to help on the forums. And hey, you can actually install WordPress yourself. In fact, web hosting companies so you plans with WordPress preinstalled often.
And finally, with WordPress working for you, you’ll never have trouble trying to figure out how to update anything. You don’t have to know any HTML at all. It’s as easy as writing an e-mail, updating content is.
