Why should you choose WordPress for your small business website?
Why you should choose WordPress for your business website.
What is WordPress?
If you’ve spent any time at all looking for website design services for your business, you’ve probably heard of WordPress.
WordPress is a CMS (Content Management System) that powers 30% of all websites online today. That’s up from 25% just a couple of years ago.
WordPress’ initial release date was May 27, 2003. Since then, it has grown from a simple blogging platform to a full CMS.
It’s capable of providing technology for your website that no other CMS can match and would have cost thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars to develop a decade ago.
You can still build simple blogs, but with the help of plugins, you can transform your website into a business utility that saves you time and adds to your business’ bottom line, revenue.
How can WordPress help your business?
When people search for a product or service online, your job as a business owner is to get them to click on your website and contact you. People will go to your website in search of information. If they don’t find what they’re looking for, they will leave and never return.
It’s smart to use your website to its’ fullest potential and become a go-to source for information about your industry. When people get what they are looking for, they will come back to you time and time again.
You can use your website as a tool to build, grow, and maintain your online presence. People aren’t going to search through the yellow pages to find you, you need to be where they are, and that’s online.
WordPress allows you to keep in contact with current and prospective clients. You can use it as a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) tool with plugins like ZoHo.
You can collect eMail addresses of people who visit your site and begin an eMail marketing campaign with MailChimp.
Want a chat bot or a live chat system for your website? WordPress has that too! You can use the Tidio chat plugin to solve that problem.
What else can WordPress do?
Have you ever wanted to start your own eCommerce business? Do you want to build a business directory with geo-location technology? How about your own social media website? You can do all of this and more with WordPress.
