Did you know that as of December 2011 WordPress version 3.0 had been downloaded over 65 million times? Since the first release of WordPress on May 27, 2003 the free open source software has rocked the entire Web. Offering businesses the ability to quickly, efficiently, and easily publish the key essential content that builds the foundation for their entire web presence is one of many WordPress successes. In fact, statistics show that WordPress manages 22% of all new websites making it the most popular blogging system on the web today.
As a business it’s imperative to offer your website visitors an amazing user experience. Just think about your own web usability expectations. You expect to find the key information you require immediately upon landing on that site, right? You expect to be able to view that site on your mobile phone and tablet with ease, right? You expect that the most up to the minute company news and information to be right there, right? You expect that website to be easy on the eye, have a smart architecture, and offer you a way to subscribe for updates, right?
Now back to being a business owner, right? Tight budget, slim staff, and a #$%^ load of content to get published? Unsure about web usability, design trends, news feed, or even how to write for the web? Well there are many effective solutions available for you as a WordPress user to empower and guide you through this process. You will learn how fun and easy it actually is to get your content published whenever, wherever.
And, as an amazing bonus you don’t need to hire a ‘web person’ to manage your content publishing. Anyone who is able to navigate the web will be able to quickly learn how to publish optimized web content. Smart, right?
In May, I am offering a free WordPress For Business workshop where I will be showing you exactly how to set and accomplish your WordPress website goals. It will be held in Ottawa at the Library in Nepean. Read the full 2-part WordPress workshop description and register below.
