A lot of businesses and startups don’t know how great WordPress is, or why they should use WordPress for business, so in this article I’m going to tell you why you should use WordPress for your business or startup website.
Aside from the fact that WordPress is free, WordPress is awesome. It’s easy to use, super powerful and you can do just about anything with it.
Not only that, but there’s a huge WordPress developer community, countless tutorials, guides, videos, ebooks and even entire businesses dedicated to helping you grow and maintain your WordPress website. If that wasn’t enough, according to w3techs.com:
“WordPress is used by 60.3% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 30.2% of all websites.”
If having 30% of all websites on the web powered by WordPress wasn’t testimonial enough and you are still asking yourself why use WordPress, let me tell you that it also powers the websites of some of the worlds biggest brands, including TechCrunch, MTV,Sweden.se, Microsoft, Facebook News and Vogue.
It’s easy to use
WordPress is intuitive and easy to use. It might seem a little daunting at first, because it’s not pretty looking like Shopify, and doesn’t spend millions of dollars on marketing and pretty pictures of business owners working 4 hours a week on a beach while their drop shipped doggie t-shirt store makes them millions, but, once you get beyond the initially sparsely designed interface, you’ll realise that WordPress is incredibly easy to use.
WordPress is a free to use CMS system that can be installed on any website. WPBeginner sum it up well:
“WordPress is an open source software. It is free in the sense of freedom not in the sense of free beer. You may ask what is the difference between these two? Open Source software comes with freedom for you to use, modify, build upon, and redistribute the software in any way you like.
