Why Every Small Business Needs a WordPress Website

Posted on Sep 11 2015 by in Business Development 

Why every small business needs a WordPress website? There are actually two questions. “Why every small business needs a website?” and “Why WordPress?” Let’s answer both questions.

WordPress website

1. Why every business needs a website?

The answer is pretty obvious. Nowadays people widely use Internet to find everything, from stationery to houses. Customers do not need to drive to several stores to find some products. Instead, they browse the Internet, and find where exactly they can purchase these products.

If you do not have a website, you do not exist for maybe thousands of your potential customers. It does not matter how good or cheap your products and services if customers do not know about you.

2. Why WordPress?

WordPress is a perfect platform for a small business website for many reasons. First of all, it will not cost you a lot. WordPress is a free platform with large community. That means that you get not only a free platform, but also a huge number of various plugins for free. There are a lot of free themes for it, but for business websites it is recommended to purchase a Premium WordPress theme. A professional Premium WordPress theme costs $30-$60 on average. (You can see SoloStream’s Premium WordPress themes here.) You will also need to purchase a web hosting and a domain name. And that’s it. Your professionally looking website may cost you less than $50! 

Another great thing about WordPress is that it is a very intuitive system. You may set up and run your WordPress website yourself, without any programming skills. WordPress is perfect for everyone who is looking for an easy-to-use and easily customizable platform. Even non tech savvy people can use it. But if you still think that you may need to hire someone to set up the website, you can be sure that it will be easy to find a good WordPress developer.

If you do not have a business website yet, it is the right time to start it now.
