When it is time to create a new website for your business, there are many choices for you to make. If it is your first website, you might need to select the domain name to use. You will need to decide the style of website you like, the number of pages you need, and the color and fonts to use. There are a variety of website builders and methods available for creating your website. WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that has grown in popularity over the last few years. Why? Primarily, WordPress provides an easy-to-use option for creating a website. That doesn’t mean that just anyone can create a professional looking website in minutes. There is still a lot to learn and understand about WordPress! Even if you choose to have a professional build your site, asking that it be created in WordPress has some benefits if you hope to be able to maintain the site yourself. Why choose WordPress for your site? Here are just a few reasons:
WordPress is available online. There is no need to purchase a software or download it to your computer. That means less clutter for your machine and no need to upgrade to a more powerful machine with lots of storage. But if it run online, is it reliable? It certainly is! In fact, about one-third of all websites are operated using WordPress. If that many sites can run effectively, you can feel secure in knowing the platform is a reliable one.
It is relatively easy to use. In a short time, you can have a basic website ready. Making the site look exactly how you would like it to will take more learning and time. This ease of use makes maintaining an already-created WordPress site simple. If ACE Design Studio creates your site in WordPress, we can then show you everything you need to know about keeping it updated. This is not necessarily true of many other website builders.
WordPress sites are SEO friendly and seem to rank well. This is partly due to the loading speed of most WordPress sites and the ease of managing your metadata. Plus, there are plug-ins you can add to the site (some of them free!) that will lead you in creating SEO-friendly content. What does that mean for you? A website that can be found more easily during an internet search!
