WordPress – What is it?

What is WordPress?

What is WordPressWordPress is a free, Web-based software program that one can use to create a website or blog. It was originally designed to create a blog, but, since it is an “open source” program, and many programmers have worked to improve its capabilities, WordPress has morphed into more than just a tool for bloggers. Currently it has been used to create and maintain more than 60 million websites, and that number continues to grow daily.

WordPress is a very easy to use piece of software to build websites. It is the platform that many internet marketers use to create their websites. The best part about this software besides its ease of use is the fact that it is free. It is what I use to create and maintain my websites. All you need is a hosting company to host your website, and at most that is about $10.00 per month.

Why would I even mention this? Because if you are planning a career in internet marketing, or have an existing "brick and mortar" business I don’t want you to even consider paying someone to build a website for you. Once you know how to create and maintain websites you will understand how easy it is and then you will never consider hiring someone to do it for you.

Additionally, knowing how to use this software to create websites is a very marketable skill should you choose to pursue that avenue.  Many individuals and companies pay people to create and maintain their websites.

Bottom line, I love WordPress and I recommend using it to create websites or blogs for your business.
