Benefits of Using WordPress as a CMS
1. Cheap or Free
Using WordPress for your website means it’s cheap or free. WordPress itself is free, a theme is easily under $100 or even free and you save loads of money (compare the cost of template vs custom design). Haven’t you heard? Stingy is in.
2. It’s That Easy
If you’ve got any computer savvy, WordPress is easy to use. If you can send an e-mail, use Microsoft Word or set up a Facebook account, then you can use WordPress. And normal use doesn’t run the risk of mucking up the design. It’s website creation for non-techies.
3. Do It Yourself
With WordPress you enter the Do-It-Yourself world. No more waiting for and paying a programmer to fix a tiny error, saving you time and money.
4. Many Users, Many Places
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.
5. Climb the Search Results
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.
