Is WordPress perfect for creating cost effective Websites?
Put simply, yes, it is. But now let me tell you why.
If you are looking to grow your business you probably fall into one of two groups:
- You need a website, but you haven’t got the time or money to make it happen.
- You already have a website, but deep down you know that it needs improvement.
If you are in one of these two groups, WordPress could well be the solution that is keeping you up at night.
Here are a couple of reasons why we use WordPress as the basis to create our cost effective Air Websites designs.
WordPress is easy to setup, manage and update
You don’t need to be a computer expert or even know what HTTPS stands for to use WordPress. All you need is an internet connection and a web browser to create your website.
For casual bloggers or hobbyists, it can take as little two mins to set up a site using one of the preloaded designs. When you are ready to take your site to the next stage, it’s easy to migrate a starter website to a web hosting account.
WordPress is search engine friendly
By now you have probably heard a thing or two about SEO. You probably know that it is important for your site to have good SEO. Well, WordPress can help.
WordPress is extremely well-coded which is why many call it SEO friendly. But the real SEO benefit comes from WordPress plugins WordPress SEO by Yoast. You can use this plugin to improve your on-page SEO and guess what, it’s free!
WordPress is ready for the mobile web
Mobile now drives almost 60% of all website traffic. Therefore, it is important that you think about the experience for users accessing your website via mobile devices. If your site doesn’t look great and work well, visitors will head elsewhere.
Many WordPress themes, including the ones available via Air Websites, are designed to be mobile responsive. This is also known as mobile-friendly. This will ensure a frictionless experience for your customers.
WordPress is free
Yes really. WordPress is free in terms of cost and in terms of what you can do with the software (the software is open source). That said, unless your needs are extremely basic it’s likely that you will need to spend at least a small amount of money. Though when you consider the £1000’s cost associated with getting a custom website created, the advantages of WordPress are plain to see.
