How WordPress Can Help Your Business
Here are the top 10 benefits of using WordPress, why it is so popular and why you might want to consider switching to a WordPress platform for your company’s website requirements.
Ease of Use
WordPress is very easy to use in comparison to some other content management systems. Adding new pages, blog posts, images etc can be done with just a few clicks. With the technology being so simple, time spent on formatting and staff training is greatly reduced.
Manage Your Website From Anywhere
WordPress is a browser-based CMS platform. Therefore you can login in to the admin area of your website and manage all aspects of it from any computer connected to the internet.
No HTML Editing or FTP Software Required
WordPress is a self-contained content management system. It does not require any coding knowledge or HTML editing software (such as Dreamweaver). You can create a new page, blog post, format text, upload images, upload documents, video files, image galleries etc. All of this can be done without the need for extra HTML or FTP software.
Search Engines Love WordPress Websites
The code behind WordPress is very clean and simple, making it easy for search engines to read and index. In addition, each page, post, and image can have its own meta tag keywords, description, and title, and can be optimised for specific keywords. This allows for very precise search engine optimisation.
You Have Control of Your Website

A Blog is Built-in and Ready to Go
WordPress was originally created as a blogging platform. Therefore its blogging capabilities are built-in and are easy to integrate. Furthermore, setting up RSS feeds, email subscriptions, and commenting capabilities is very easy. In addition, you can automatically add the most recent blog posts to other pages of the website (your homepage, for example).
Extend the Functionality of Your Website with Plugins
Want to add a new feature, event, calendar, video gallery, Twitter Feed, Facebook Fan Box, and more to your site? The WordPress CMS makes adding new features to your website simple. There are also thousands of free and paid plugins which are fully documented and supported by the developers.
