You want to blog. You need to blog. If you don’t blog soon, you may explode. Or implode. Either way, you need to be heard.
Wait! You have a business… and you are not currently blogging… you are losing potential clients, customers and connections every day you go without circulating content! It’s okay. Now you know. We can fix this and get you headed in the right direction.
You just need the right blogging service.
Let’s start with your first inevitable question: Yes, there are free options that can get your started and headed in the right direction – Although you may want to upgrade as your business and blog grows. According to Dear Blogger, WordPress.org is the best place to start your blogging endeavor!
WordPress is a simple to use, highly customizable blogging platform that is made for the coding impaired, just like me.
Once you are ready to move on from the free option, WordPress makes it simple and affordable by only charging for hosting and a domain name. That’s all.
In addition, tracking is a necessity when it comes to converting visitors. Many blogging platforms have a rudimentary “system” of tracking. Not WordPress.
You can check your site’s traffic, track your bounce rate, add widgets, even spell check (for those that “alphabetically impaired”) all within your WordPress Dashboard.
And with a few Top Ten Reviews Gold Award sitting in their trophy mantel, it’s not hard to see why WordPress has become a must have in your business arsenal.
WordPress is For Everyone
It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s customizable, it’s all for you. Whether you want to use a pre made template, purchase a template or code yourself, you have
all the power at your fingertips to reach and convert through the world wide web! If you or someone who knows CSS (cascading style sheets), you will have more customization capabilities!
For those that are CSS challenged, you have literally hundreds of templates and designs to chose from, with a drag and drop platform that allows instant branding.
Talk About Simple
It is difficult to get your content into your blog and published… I’d say not! You can copy and paste from a document or use the drag and drop widgets to compose original content on the spot! I always feel like a child with a fresh new set of crayons, all you got to to open the box and go!
WordPress even gives the option of programing with HTML directly through the widgets, as well. You can add anything from music to video to photos and podcasts.
It has a wide array of plugins, widgets,integrations and several other neat little digital gadgets that our tech savvy hearts racing.
The Add Ons
Ready to monetize your blog? WordPress has an option for that too. With templates specifically designed for banners and tasteful ads, the ability for 24/7 income is literally a click, drag and drop away.
How about monitoring the impact of your words? Turn on the comments and let the fans begin!
They also offer to send your blog out into the farthest lands of the internet. Google, Yahoo, Bing and everything in between!
There is no telling who could be reading your words at any given moment! Perhaps it’s your favorite celebrity… or a potential client unknowingly scouring the internet for you.
Over all, WordPress could do wonders for any small business wanting to create a site and/or blog that keeps customers informed and engaged with a high potential for conversion.
Professionals have been using blogs since virtually the dawn of the internet to communicate, interact, and overall relate to their current clientele and reach potential new ones.
And the best part is, you absolutely do not have to be a computer expert. With all of the features and pre made programs to hold your hand and guide you along, you’ll be slinging high end digital content with the best of them. And with a claim of powering 23% of the internet, it’s easy to see why!
And if you are worried about the transfer to mobile, then fret no more my friend! WordPress will gladly mobilize your site right down to handy dandy adorable little pocket sized pixels!
You’ll be able to access and view your site with the greatest of ease from virtually anywhere, with their mobile app. Weather on the move or safe at home, you can find WordPress happily waiting for your next command.
Should you use the free or premium packages?
Well, it all depends on what you are need. Each business and each blog have different needs. Yes, admittedly, the premium packages can seem a bit pricey for a new or small business.
Just starting at $99 and going up to $299 (yearly, not monthly), it can seem like free may be the best way to go… After all, even the simple free themes have an amazing value with a single cost of anything but your time!
But, upgrading will open up more doors of integrations and customization. It really does depend on what your business needs and WordPress makes it simple with their flexible options.
Personally, I do everything with the Wealthy Affiliate, so I not only use WordPress for free, but I also get free hosting and I am apart of one of the best group of people that make money on the internet.
Rather than just paying to use the service for $299, I have access to some of the best training in the world, to go along with a network of like minded individuals.
You really have to check it out and see what I’m talking about. It comes with a completely free membership, but of course they have the premium stuff as well. You’ll absolutely love it!
Just because the system is simple to use, doesn’t mean you won’t need help navigating. It’s a good thing WordPress has an award winning customer service center!
Such fast and friendly tech support just a phone call and/or email away, nothing says virtual love like a little helping hand when you get lost.
They will help you. They will help you a lot.
On top of that, there is their “forum” section, where members ask and answer questions. If you do a simple search in Google for any problems with WP, you will most likely get the answers from the actual site itself.
Yes, site and blog creation can be scary. But WordPress can take the fear right away and replace with it with a calm, cool, zen like manor.
Never again will you wish you had the ability to create a world with just a few key strokes and the click of a button. The wait is over. You now can.
Go forth and reach the world!!
