No more calling your web developer to make simple content updates!
WordPress can be used to build a simple blog OR an entire complex website. It allows YOU to easily update your site. WordPress is a scalable way to build both small and large sites—with or without a blog. Use it to build a simple brochure-style website, a business blog, an eCommerce site or a multi-level membership site. It includes a simple-to-use backend that allows you to make edits.
A business blog = a PR & Search Engine Optimization (SEO) machine.
Blogging is a form of digital communication that is posted on a website, usually available to be read by anyone with access to the Internet, in contrast to e-mail, which is a message directed to specific individuals. A blog usually consists of a reverse-chronological series of dated journal entries, and may include photos, videos and audio files. Bloggers frequently encourage dialogue with their readers by allowing them to post comments on the site.
