Why is Word Press popular?
It is run by people wanting to share the joys of free writing and online technology. Known as freeware, the technical support is provided by highly skilled volunteers who willingly share knowledge and insight to improve user’s experiences. Word Press is known for its excellent customer service. In addition to being able to freely communicate with developers, users can learn through tutorials and multistreaming video lessons.
It is easy to use
Word Press takes pride in offering a quick, convenient and easy way to start blogs and/or websites. If you use its servers, simply update your content and the software takes care of formatting and HTML concerns. Every theme includes an easy-to-use dashboard that makes updating and changing your site an easy task. Even if you doubt your website development skills, Word Press makes tasks like editing content and adding new pages easy to accomplish.
It is budget friendly
Using a Word Press platform can be one of the best things you do for your company’s budget. It depends upon whether you choose to operate your Word Press site on their server or your own. If you choose to operate your site on the Word Press server, there is no charge. By doing this, though, your website address may have wordpress.com in it. This will let others know you are using the Word Press server. You cannot beat the cost, though.
If having your own business website is important, you may decide to host it yourself or host it on another server. This gives you more control over your Word Press site. When you do this, your website will be on the WordPress.org platform. It is your responsibility to find an appropriate server that meets your needs and budget. What is a comfort to know is the fact that if you start your blog using the WordPress.com free platform, the company makes it very easy to transfer your blog onto another host server. You just need to choose from any number of Word Press-friendly hosting companies to do this.
With so many benefits provided by using the Word Press platform, your business will be losing its competitive advantage by not taking advantage of this powerful medium.
