Why not consider using WordPress.
Why not consider using WordPress – that is what we are discussing today. Thanks for reading this blog article and we hope you enjoy it. First off, i4 Web Services is full service web services agency without the typical outlandish web design or marketing agency prices. We use WordPress as our website solution for all our clients these days. But it was not always like that – for many years we did coding and other technical stuff from scratch which was good but it limited the client from getting involved with his or her website.
As like most Web Marketing companies, we offer a wide variety of web services from web development, SEO, web hosting, SSL Certificates, domains, web design, social media marketing, web videos, video editing, infographics, and online business listings on search engines. Which is critical to have built in correctly to your website’s brand presence.
Our clients wanted to see first hand the results we were creating for their business online. So we stepped into WordPress and have not looked back since. Why? Because we want to be totally transparent in our efforts plus we want to show our clients we literally have nothing to hide. Therefore, WordPress was the best platform to help us achieve such a high level of trust with our clients.
Now from creating a logo to content writing – all this can be uploaded to WordPress for the client to review and download if necessary. We found that not only could we can handle it for clients but it improved our ability to work with clients that were far away from our storefront location. Plus, this tool also allowed us to handle web projects big, medium, and small.
WordPress Helps Solve Problems – Why Not Consider Using WordPress
What is the secret sauce in WordPress: People
WordPress is good for SEO purposes and advanced website development solutions too.
But WordPress is not for everyone – here are three things that can stop clients from feeling attracted to you!
A Content Management System That Is Complicated. Yup, WordPress has too many choices sometimes. And sometimes, it is too advanced for a client. If your content management system (CMS) is too complicated for anyone to use and learn. This can result in less frequent updates, lower SEO rankings, and the client’s having a negative overall website experience.
So picking the right plugin for the client is critical. If you are trying to do it solo or maybe as a way to save money by not hiring a web developer or web designer – be careful. If it’s a constant struggle for you or your team to work with the CMS plugin, it might be time to make a switch to something easier or invest in someone that really knows how to work it correctly.
So what is a CMS? WordPress as a Content Management System (CMS for short).
If you are an experienced user of WordPress (WP) and want to setup a non-blog website – perhaps a portfolio site, news/magazine site or even an e-commerce site – you might just want to skip the more robust content management systems (CMS) most people tend to suggest, a specific plugin like Woo-Commerce or connecting Shopify to your website, and consider using WordPress for your CMS-oriented task instead.
Why? Because…It Can Be Done Quite Easily Too If you were avoiding WordPress for your news or portfolio site because you thought WordPress could only be used as a blogging platform, think again. You would be surprised at the multitude of ways WordPress can be used as a CMS, and how easily you can customize it to do your bidding.
As mentioned earlier there is a huge repository of available WordPress plugins already ensures that your job is half done. But you will need to set time aside to learn the software plugin and what its limits are. Then set more time aside to find one that meets all your requirements. The real question is do you have time in your regular business day to do this?
Knowing when to Enable or Disable Plugin Updates on WordPress and why. Cool so maybe you are familiar with WordPress already. That’s great yet this is probably the number 1 reason why anyone would want to hire an expert. WordPress does updates that plugins need to improve towards. Some plugins don’t bother to do that while others have been abandoned entirely. You would not notice this until after your finished updating everything and you see your website is no longer functioning correctly. This is when you may want to have a web services company on call to help you out. Maybe one like i4 Web Services? 🙂
Just remember that the main purpose of any website is to inform and engage future clients at all hours of the day. But if customers can’t find the information because of a broken plugin, they’re only going to leave your site angry and frustrated.
This is a big cause of decreases in future sales. Why because an automated plugin update can happen while you are sleeping. Or worse yet, it can happen and you don’t check in to WordPress daily so you miss it.
Thus, if your visits to your homepage decreases, so will your SEO ranking as well. You may want review if it is better to have a company like i4 Web Services step in to help you.
