Let’s talk about business websites; there are many companies out there that offer you a website platform to use for your business. Some charge a fortune telling you that their website creation is better for many reasons, but, just because they are expensive doesn’t mean you need the website built from them. There are many free website programs out there but they don’t give you as much functionality within your website to make the changes you want. There are programs that fall within these two categories and one of those types of programs that many people use today is called “WordPress”, this is a very versatile and very user-friendly program for the creation of your website. You see, even with the very expensive websites you don’t have the controls and capabilities to manage your own website within, this is due to the developer and their willingness to add more expensive coding to their platforms to give you access to all of the areas of your website for you to control; this might come as an extra cost out of your pocket if they have to add these features for you. Who wants to wait for the developer to add your things to your website, this coding should already be in your dashboard for your website to manage. So, what I’m saying is that if you’re choosing a developer to create a website for you, be patient in case the developer doesn’t have the time to add the things you need in a timely manner. For the rest of us that want to use a program that is fully functional and adaptable and ready for your input then WordPress is the better option. WordPress is very compatible with all the plug-in capabilities and is ready for your security to be added and your ability to get your business on the internet in minutes.
Of course with any website creation, you’re going to need SEO. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) gets your website noticed through the quality and quantity of traffic to your website, if you are experienced in SEO than this part is easy for you. For those that don’t understand the processes in SEO, let me explain this process in a technical term.
