For small businesses, having a custom website built and then maintained can represent a substantial or even prohibitive cost. Fortunately, the days when a custom-built site was the only choice are over. WordPress offers businesses an intuitive content management system (CMS) that is easy to update!
WordPress started out as an open source blogging platform. While it remains open source and free, the software has evolved beyond blogging through updates to the core software, as well extended capabilities provided by plugins and themes, into a content management system.
Content management systems like WordPress are applications that enable users to control, modify, create or store a wide variety of content for display on web sites. For example, a CMS is what allows an embedded video from YouTube to appear on a blog without the user needing to create any code.
Ease of Use
Updating a WordPress-based website requires almost zero technical skill. The application uses familiar features, such as drag-and-drop for files and copy-and-paste for text. Anyone that has ever used Microsoft Word will find lots of familiar ways to adjust text, from bold and italics to bulleted lists and alignment tools. To make things even easier, most web hosting services even provide a single-click installation option for WordPress.
Most businesses need a website that includes everything from a homepage to an about us page, services, products and a contact us page. Adding pages on WordPress doesn’t call for more than a few clicks of the mouse and a page name. After that, it’s just a matter of typing, inserting or embedding the content.
