Maintaining your own website can be intimidating, especially if you don’t know the first thing about web maintenance. The words “html source code” might make you break out in a cold sweat, and you may be tempted to hire a third-party to maintain your website for you. That’s certainly an option, but what if there was a simple, easy way to maintain the site yourself?
Consider letting VR Business Marketing help you set up WordPress on your site. WordPress is an easy-to-use content management system that anyone can learn, regardless of their knowledge of web maintenance. The following are a few ways that WordPress can empower you to maintain your own website.
WordPress is open source, a fancy term meaning that it’s free to use. That already puts you miles ahead of the game. If you can maintain your website on regular basis, for free, you’ll be free to divert your financial resources where they’re actually needed.
WordPress gives you a variety of different website themes that you can choose from. Once you pick a theme, VR Business Marketing will take over the reigns and customize a web site to meet your specific needs. When we’re done, you’ll have a website that truly expresses your business identity, and you’ll still have access to the theme section. You’ll be able to make adjustments and updates to your site whenever you need to.
The Beauty of Plugins
Whether it’s linking your Facebook account to your website or setting up an Analytics Page to see how many hits your site is getting, you can do it all with relative ease through WordPress. WordPress plug-ins provide you with a simple way to add features to your website to maximize its reach and interactivity. You can set up a contact form, put together a mailing list, and even create a display window on your website that shows your Twitter feed.
The saying “it takes a village to raise a child” is easily applicable to open source software. WordPress was built by a community of like-minded programmers who believe managing your own website should be easy and fun. That community is available to you, offering you free “how-to” tutorials, forums, and lists of frequently asked questions. There’s no WordPress-related question that its community members can’t answer.
At the end of the day, the more control you have over your website, the more you can use it to meet your business goals and needs. WordPress provides you with that road to empowerment. Let VR Business Marketing help you get WordPress up and running on your site today, so that your webpage can be managed the way it should be: your way.
