Websites & Sales Funnels

Many years ago, WordPress was fundamentally a tool to create a blog, rather than more traditional websites. This hasn’t been true for a long time now, though. It is now my go-to website builder of choice with my business, and in this article, I am going to delve into a few of the reasons why that is. It’s also important to note that I am not alone in thinking it’s the best. WordPress is the world’s most popular website builder and powers over a third of websites globally (thanks to the vast array of website features available).

At its heart, WordPress is the quickest, easiest, and most popular way to build your own website. However, it’s actually more than that. For those that are more tech-savvy, WordPress is an open-source content management system. Essentially, this means that you (or anyone else) can amend the WordPress software free of charge. It is a tool that makes it super easy to manage important parts of your site – such as content – without the need to be adept at programming.

In fact, I think its popularity stems largely from the fact that WordPress gives you entire control of every part of your website and online presence. There’s no doubt that this website builder can be used to build literally any kind of site. In addition to powering millions of blogs and business sites, it is also a popular way to create an eCommerce store too. With WordPress, you can create:

  • Business websites
  • Blogs
  • eCommerce stores
  • Forums
  • Portfolios
  • Membership sites
  • …And basically anything else you can think of!

Also, because WordPress is global, it allows you to be too! Their website builder is completely translated into over 75 languages allowing you to create multilingual sites. Moreover, its impressive array of possible integrations to popular business tools means that you can further automate your daily operation. And I’m all about anything that allows for more automation. In fact, if you want to have a free discovery call with me and a product tour of “The Autom8 Online Business Framework”, then you can do so by booking one here.

Bespoke Website Builder For Everyone

WordPress places the power of editing entirely into the website owner’s hands (no matter how inexperienced they might be). Consequently, for the small business owner, this platform is empowering to say the least. Even if you aren’t a developer, you can modify a website thanks to WordPress’s huge ecosystem of plugins and themes.

With 50,895 plugins that extend website features and functionality, each individual site created will be completely bespoke. From website language switching to complex shipping charges for e-Commerce. From SEO improvements to event calendar plugins. It is likely that your website will continue to grow and change as your business does.

Furthermore, there are endless themes that are as diverse as they are slick. For those completely new to this, a theme is a collection of stylesheets and templates used to define the display and appearance of a WordPress-powered website. There are both paid-for and free ones available, so you won’t be short on choice.

Moreover, the WordPress community is vast, so it gives some peace of mind knowing that if you do come across any problems, there are people to reach out to. There’s a big community of developers, thought leaders, and support teams to help you use this website builder in an optimal way for you and your business. For instance, the first access point if you have any issues relating to a plugin or theme is the official support page. Happy days.

As if those aren’t enough reasons for you to get started, the easy-to-use backend of WordPress is very intuitive to use, even for the novice! In summary, it is the number one CMS choice to build your website with all the desired website features. It also leads the pack when it comes to user-friendliness and versatility. It’s not surprising that users of WordPress include Time, CNN, TechCrunch, and me!
