The WordPress Guide for Small Businesses
Having an online presence is crucial to the success of any small business, as most consumers do the majority of their product and service research online. Most small business owners know having a business website is very important to success, but often we hear that having and maintaining a website is very expensive and time consuming.
True, several years ago you likely needed to hire a web developer in order to create a great website, but with the development of WordPress, and services like it, you can now build and maintain your website—all DIY.
The beauty of WordPress is in its user-friendliness. If you can use Microsoft Word, you can use WordPress. But despite its accessibility, it can be difficult to know where to start if you don’t already know how to use WordPress. Do you start with a theme (WordPress’ free website designs) and structure your whole site off of your theme? Do you pick your domain name first? Do you need to worry about hosting?
