5 Things We Like About WordPress WebsitesWhen creating a new website or updating an existing one, it can be difficult to choose which direction to go. There are several different platforms all with distinct features for a wide variety of uses. At TMC Typing & Internet Services, our website platform of choice is WordPress. With its responsive design, efficient functionality, and design availability, WordPress makes it easy and simple to create and manage your own website. 

1. Responsive Design

A responsive website design offers flexibility for all users, regardless if they’re using a laptop, cell phone, or tablet. Basically, a responsive design makes it easy for others to view your website. This increases the chances of users, meaning potential clients and customers, of staying on your website longer. 

2. Cost-Effective

Choosing to design a WordPress website yourself is an affordable and cost-effective decision. The only costs involved are the domain name and website hosting, especially if you choose a free WordPress theme. If you choose to purchase a WordPress theme, this is typically a one-time fee. Remember, all of these costs are tax-deductible as the website is used for your business.

3. SEO Friendly

WordPress offers many free plug-ins that can improve the search engine optimization (SEO) of your website. One of our favorites is the Yoast SEO plug-in. This plug-in can help with a wide range of SEO improvements such as better readability, more effective meta descriptions, and optimized blog post titles. 

4. Thousands of Plug-Ins

One very useful feature of WordPress websites is the availability of a wide variety of plug-ins. They have a plug-in for virtually any feature you’d like from contact forms and security resources to email marketing and social media integrations.

5. Useful Integrations

Do you use MailChimp or Aweber for your email marketing? Do you like to post your products or blog articles on social media? If so, many of these online platforms and other systems integrate seamlessly with WordPress. A few examples along with those mentioned above are Google Analytics, Shopify, Salesforce, Zoom, Gmail, Slack, Calendly, and several hundred more.
