For those of you that have ever created a website, you’ve more than likely heard of WordPress. It’s a website content management system that started off being used by Bloggers, and has now evolved in to one of the most user friendly backend systems available, and it powers millions of websites across the planet.
Why is it so good?
In our opinion it has been successful due to the vast array of themes and plugins available for it. To liken it to your smartphone, your phone wouldn’t get nearly the same level of attention if there wasn’t apps to load on to it. If you search the WordPress Theme or Plugin site, you will find that there is likely an option for anything you can think of. And should the option you want not be there, a developer willing to create it is not far away.
However that is only half the story. It’s all good and well to have a site that developers can build, but who will be adding to, or editing the site on a regular basis? When it comes to smaller businesses that don’t have the budget to hire a full/part time web developer, or even pay someone to edit the site on an hourly rate, then simplicity of editing the site is paramount. This is where WordPress truly excels.
New content is a must when it comes to keeping your website somewhere visitors will come back to, so having an existing team member to change content in their downtime is a massive benefit to small business. Here at Fuze IT, we like to ensure that our customers feel comfortable in editing their own site. Often this means that if they are fluent in something like Microsoft Word, then they should be fine in WordPress. Unfortunately the demands of some websites these days (and the required “Wow Factor”) means that things aren’t always quite as simple as Microsoft Word. In this scenario we have you covered too. All our websites come with either an on-site, or remote tuition session to ensure you can make your desired changes should you need to. We’re always here to make the changes if you don’t feel comfortable, or even if you just don’t want to.
Get in touch with us if you’re considering a new website. You may be surprised what you can achieve even with a modest budget.
