What Can You Do with WordPress?
WordPress has been the most popular platform in terms of blogging and eCommerce. I have encountered clients in different countries and almost all of them are using WordPress for their business, blog, products or services. There might be a lot of platforms for eCommerce, like Joomla, Shopify, Magento, Etsy and so on but WordPress has been the most user-friendly, versatile, flexible and powerful platform I have encountered so far. This is based on my own point of view. Maybe that is why most of my clients are using WordPress. It is not just based on what I think but also based on my experience. Now tell me, ask people having their own websites, what platform are they using for their website? If not WordPress, have they heard about it?
In WordPress, you can create a shop and make a blog at the same time; all in one place. You can also create a directory if you want. It is up to you and it can be customized as you want. However, it depends on how complex you want your website to be. If you want a complex website, you can always get a developer to customize it for you. It is also a code-friendly environment for developers as well. But, if you just want a simple blogging website, you can do it on your own already. You can modify it as you want. It is easy to use. Unless you are very meticulous about your WordPress design, you can always get a web designer to customize it using CSS or graphic design. You have nothing to worry about. If you want the best then you should invest wisely.
How Does WordPress Work?
It is not just neatly structured but it has been very flexible when it comes to 3rd party connections and compatibilities. You can connect your website to Paypal, Amazon payments, Woocommerce, autoresponder services, mailing services, Google analytics and much more. It offers a wide variety of features that you can think of. One benefit of being one of the popular platforms to website owners is that many services have been trying to develop connections with it. As much as they could possibly do, it is essential to 3rd party applications to be compatible with popular platforms.
Aside from that, even SEO experts would agree with me if I say, it is the most used platform that they are using in creating their Private Blog Networks. It is not just user-friendly but it is also SEO friendly. There are numerous of themes that you can use that are already structured mainly for SEO purposes. Search Engine Optimization is really important for your website and your website’s HTML5 structure should be optimized as well. It is the best blogging platform for most of them.
