WordPress 101: What Is It?

WordPress is a free, Web-based software program that anyone can use to build and maintain a website or blog.

Your website will grow with your business and can be expanded as you grow. 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 or a multi-level membership site. Plugin to the latest social media sharing tools, post photos, videos and link to your email newsletter or special offers. It includes a simple-to-use backend that allows you to make edits.

IMPORTANT: While it’s easy to maintain, trying to do setup yourself can lead to hours of frustration & big mistakes. Let me help!

WordPress is a free, web-based software program that anyone can use to build and maintain a website or blog. It was originally intended as an easy way to set up a blog. But, thanks to the efforts of a large “open source” community of programmers working to extend and improve its capabilities, it is now much more. New improvements are constantly being added that will keep your business up-to-date with the latest in technology, without having to do an expensive redesign.
