After attending Tampa Bay WordCamp this past weekend I have finally seen the light and came to the conclusion that WordPress truly is the right choice for small to mid-size businesses. Whether you are a Realtor, Developer, Car Dealer, Writer or you want to start your own clothing line, WordPress will provide you with everything you need to gain more exposure for your business.
Here are a few good reasons why WordPress is the right choice for your business:
Avoid Costly SEO Services!
- If you’re thinking, I won’t have to write any more checks to those “Snake-Oil Salesman” SEO people anymore than keep reading!
- WordPress is one of the best CMS(Content Management Systems) around because you can easily add a Blog to your existing website. Having a Blog that you frequently update with articles containing the right keywords will prompt search engines to reindex your website because they believe your site has more relevant content for the keywords you’re writing about.
- I’ll do a follow up on this concept at a later date because there are a lot of reasons why WordPress is naturally SEO friendly.
Maintain Your Own Site
- If you do a Google search right now on how to add a new menu item to a WordPress website you will undoubtedly find over a thousand articles explaining this concept.
- Due to the immense popularity of WordPress there is an abundance of articles “just like this” that want to teach you how to do this or that with WordPress.
- If Google fails you and you can’t find what you’re looking for you can always go to the well supported WordPress Codex.
Make Your Own Changes
- WordPress is one of the most user friendly platforms on the market. See the chart below…
- If you are sick of your color scheme and want to change the background color from blue to grey. You can easily do this with WordPress. If there isn’t a theme option to do so then there is a free plugin that will do it for you.
So there you have it folks. You can save money on SEO Services, Make your own design changes and maintain your site on your own with WordPress. And if all else fails you could always hire a developer to help!
