Before Content Management Systems (CMS) came about, updating a web site meant passing off your polished and perfected writing to a programmer who would convert it into computer lingo. The process was slow and painful for everyone involved, not to mention expensive.
WordPress is completely free as it is open source software. Ideal for new businesses particularly in times of recession.
WordPress is easy to use, this is one of the major factors that has made it the most popular CMS to date. If you can send an e-mail, use Microsoft Word or set up a Facebook account, then you can use WordPress. It’s web site management for non-techies.
WordPress is online and offers multiple users, which means you’re not the only one who can fix something in a pinch and you can access it from anywhere. Which means if you’ve got Internet access in Tahiti, you could work from there. That also means your important site is backed up on a secure server with multiple redundancies, not some high school kid’s laptop.
A CMS such as WordPress also makes it easier to optimize your search engine results. That means your site is more likely to land on the first page of Google results, which means people are more likely to find you.
WordPress is constantly updated, so your website is always future proofed, and one of the big advantage of this is it keeps up with the latest search engine requirements.
