Why WordPress?

There are a lot of reasons for using WordPress, but the most important is the fact that it’s easy for website owners to operate.  When I install it for my clients, they actually want to update their sites now – they’re excited about what they can do on the web and the fact that they can do it themselves!

But I don’t just recommend WordPress, I’m a user too.  This site is running WordPress, for example.

The biggest misconception about WordPress is that it’s only for blogging.  In fact, WordPress can be a content management system for any website: brochure, membership, ecommerce, portfolio or whatever site you can think of.  That’s one of the things I stress in my beginner’s book about WordPress.

But what if you already have a website – is it possible to keep what you’ve got now and convert it to WordPress?  Sure.  And here’s a video to show you why it makes sense to convert to WordPress.  Oh by the way, my company does conversions… nudge, nudge.
