In this post I am going to share with you the 7 reasons you should build your website with WordPress.
You may have heard of WordPress before, it was originally developed as a blogging platform. However you can use WordPress for much more than just a blog.
In fact a recent survey showed WordPress powers 23.4% of all websites on the internet. WordPress can be used to build blogs, corporate websites, eCommerce websites, and much more. It has been used by Oprah, CNN, the NY Times and many small business owners and entrepreneurs.
Here are 7 reasons why you should build your website on WordPress.
#1 WordPress is Free
The days of having to pay hundreds and thousands of dollars for a good looking website design are gone. WordPress is free software, you can download it, install it and use it to build your website completely for free.
To run WordPress, all you need is a domain name and hosting. If you are just getting started, I recommend you use BlueHost for your hosting as you will save 50% as well as get your domain name for free.
#2 WordPress Is Easy to Learn and Use
WordPress uses a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor, so adding content to your site is very similar to using your favorite word processor or email program.
Since WordPress is used by millions, there are tons of great learning videos all over the internet if you need some help.
#3 Thousands of Beautiful and Professional Themes
WordPress is a CMS (content management system), this means the content of your website is stored separate from the design of your site. This make it very easy for you to easily and quickly change the look of your site.
In fact WordPress already has thousands of professionally designed themes (free and paid) you can choose from. Simply find one you like, install it and you will have a completely different look to your site. You can easily change themes without having to worry about making modifications to your content.
Many WordPress themes are also easy to customize because they come with their own option panel giving you the ability to easily change colors, upload logos, change backgrounds, create beautiful sliders, and other cool things without ever needing to write any code.
