What is WordPress?
WordPress is an online website creation tool. it is a content management system that makes it dead easy for people without any technical knowledge to setup and maintain a website.
WordPress is so popular that every second, somewhere in the world four babies and two WordPress powered websites are born. No kidding!
Back in the days, website management used to be hard, you had to spend a lot of time creating hundreds of web pages and then you had to transfer each page individually to the web server that hosted the website using a FTP Client. If you do not understand a single word I wrote in this paragraph. It is cool; you do not have to. that is why WordPress was built.
WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted web publishing tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.
Who uses WordPress?
If you choose WordPress to publish on the web, you will be in good company. Many famous websites, news outlets, music sites, Fortune 500 companies and celebrities are using WordPress. So, you see… nobody is too big or small to use WordPress.
How can WordPress help my business?
WordPress makes it super easy to create an online presence for your website. Your current customers and potential customers are now searching for you and businesses that offer what you currently offer.
Not having a website these days is just as bad as not having a business office. Infact, having a website is more important than having an office, an office restricts you to your geographical location. A website opens you up to anybody anywhere. They can log on to your website and interact with your business.
What do I need to use WordPress?
WordPress requires you have a web server and a web domain, these are small technical aspects CloudPitcher can easily handle for you. We usually tell clients that if they can use Facebook, then they can run their very own website using WordPress also.
What you need to do then is to focus on your business and create content for your website. Add your business logo, write your contact details, sometimes all your visitors need is a quick phone number they can call.
Your website is your very own 24 hours billboard, always online and telling people about the good things you do.
