WordPress is an online, open source website creation tool written in PHP. But in non-geek speak, it's probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today.
WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.
Around a quarter of the web is powered by it.
Another of WordPress’ major strengths is that it’s easy to use.
Using WordPress for your business ?
An entrepreneur’s focus should be on their business; they do not want to have to solve endless website problems.
Fortunately, WordPress meets this need perfectly.
You should host a WordPress Blog on your own domain.
If you’re looking to build a serious business online, you must host your own blog to maintain full ownership and control of it. The good news is that these days, with tons of competition, it's not expensive to host your own site.
No matter how much effort you put in creating valuable content and making a free blog presentable, the hard reality is that you are mostly promoting the platform, not you.
Especially if you are forced to compromise on address name, since your first choices are often taken.
Imagine if a major company, like Amazon.com, used Amazon.wordpress.com as their website address. Looks very amateurish and unprofessional. The same is true for your online business. You need to have your own branded domain name.
Once you have your website up and running you'll want to start driving website traffic to it, building your email list, and making money with your new blog.
So begin building your website with WordPress now.
