What is WordPress? It’s a content management system (CMS) that features highly customizable components and WordPress themes for projects like blogging and user-friendly web pages.
These days, it often seems as though everyone has a blog somewhere talking about something they feel passionate about. As a business owner, you’re passionate about your company’s success, and a blog is an essential part of showing your customers why you’re the best at what you do.
If you’ve heard of WordPress before but haven’t used it, you might think it’s a platform for blogging. A few years ago, your assumption would be on target, but today’s WordPress offers some quite robust features in a neat, tidy package.
And WordPress isn’t just for beginners, either. Major brands like Sony, Time Magazine, and Disney use WordPress, and that’s just a few of the global companies that utilize this versatile platform.
One of the biggest benefits of using a WordPress site is how easy it is to utilize social media platforms alongside updates made with WordPress. With minimal time commitment, social media offers efficient and low-cost marketing for your business, and WordPress helps you maximize those efforts.
The way in which WordPress allows you to combine social media efforts with your web site updates is through a feature called a “plugin.” We’ll help you choose the best WordPress plugins for your web site and ensure that your business’s many accounts are synced and cooperating with one another.
For example, when we post an update to your company’s blog, WordPress plugins update your various social media accounts with snippets, excerpts, and notifications. Your Twitter followers will see a Tweet about your new blog post, and your Facebook followers will get a notice in their feed about a new blog they can read.
Easy, quick, and reduces the time commitment required to manage multiple social media accounts and posts. Even if your business or group doesn’t have a million followers on Facebook, an active and informative social media campaign is essential. WordPress helps you conduct those campaigns with its convenient plugins.
Another way that WordPress helps your company provide a valuable experience to your visitors is with its built-in search engine optimization (SEO) features. Search engines like Google have some rules that, when followed, help your website rise to the top of search results.
Although it takes time to increase rankings, WordPress is a terrific way to ensure your website has all the required components like a proper description, good keywords, and a title that’s the right length. WordPress is like having a helpful checklist each time new page or blog entry is posted on your site.
Strictly speaking, any website used for any purpose can use WordPress. Maybe you’re the owner of a local Dallas restaurant and want to start a blog about your establishment’s fare. Tell your customers all about your specials with a blog and some static pages on a WordPress site.
Or, maybe you’re a small business owner, and you want to create a way for customers to interact with you on various social media websites. A WordPress site is a great way to connect with your clients and keep them updated on your business’s new offerings.
The Internet is about sharing information, and WordPress is a flexible and adaptable option that we can use to help build your business’s internet presence.
