The changes help us to grow, to change the routine, to improve and progress.
Although on many occasions they also represent a challenge and go through certain obstacles to be able to enjoy the benefits. The effort is 100% worth it.
In the world of technology and the Internet, changes are very common and with which you have to deal with all the time.
Everything evolves very fast and new tools, trends and ways of doing things are constantly emerging.
Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a lot of money or be a programming expert to have a modern, functional website with an excellent and attractive design.
With WordPress it is possible to achieve this easily and quickly.
Check out these 10 signs your website is in dire need of WordPress:
1. High maintenance costs
If you hired a any freelancer to create your website, they may have charged you an high fee and also charge you separately for maintaining your website (either monthly or quarterly).
With WordPress you can manage, edit and maintain your website yourself and thus not depend on anyone or have to spend more.
WordPress is a very easy-to-use and accessible platform for all types of users regardless of their level of experience.
2. You want to take control
With WordPress, you don’t depend on anyone.
You can have full control of basic design tasks, edit the content you need as many times as you want, add new pages or new sections, change colors, images and any other aspect easily and quickly.
How good it is not to depend more on a programmer or designer!
3. Your page looks like it was made in the 90s
Many pages seem to be made as if we were still living in the 90s and the time when the Internet started.
By this I mean flat sites, with dull colors, too old-fashioned fonts, confusing structure, and disproportionate images.
Today Web technology has changed a lot and we can create modern pages, with an attractive design and that go with the performance, functionality and aesthetic trends of 2021. Not of 1998.
WordPress has themes and designs that meet all of this and much more.
Remember that based on the appearance and first impression they have, users decide to stay or leave a page in the first seconds of stay.
Welcome them with a great design.
4. It’s time for a radical change
If you have been with the same design for several years and you feel that it is necessary to give new life and a new direction to your website (and your business), WordPress will be your best ally to achieve it.
In a matter of a few days you will be able to have a new page with a better design and friendly structure to facilitate navigation and accessibility for your users.
5. You need new specific functions
Your current website has worked perfectly for the time you have had it, but now you have realized that you need a specific functionality, for example, create a virtual store, create a form of a certain type, add a forum or discussion section , a gallery of photos and / or videos or anything else.
With a “traditional” website, adding new functions or features requires a lot of technical knowledge or a fairly full wallet.
By switching to WordPress you can save money and time. Thanks to the use and installation of plugins, you will be able to have access to hundreds of available functionalities so that your site is not only reportable, but also complies with everything you need on a personal and professional level.
6. You want to facilitate the configuration and have better results in SEO
It’s no secret that WordPress and Google get along very well.
In addition to the fact that the platform is already “pre-configured” and armed to position itself well in search engines, the use of plugins such as WordPress SEO by Yoast help even more so that a WordPress site can reach the top positions in Google and other search engines faster and more effectively than other platforms or types of pages.
7. You want to start blogging
Having a blog and posting relevant posts has many advantages, including:
- Connect with prospects, customers, and audience.
- Offer value and generate more trust with users.
- Improve SEO (Google loves fresh and relevant content)
- Position yourself as an expert
- Make alliances
- Create and / or promote products
- Many more
Little by little more people have a blog, an essential communication and marketing tool today.
WordPress in essence is a platform for creating blogs.
8. You want and need to take advantage of the latest technologies without the need to master them
Web technology evolves very fast and new trends in design, infrastructure and performance are emerging every day to improve the user experience on the Internet.
WordPress embraces all the latest trends and technologies when it comes to web pages. We can find themes with “responsive” design which work on all types of platforms (PC, Mac, iPod, iPhone, iPad, Tablets), themes made with HTML5 and CSS3, plugins for electronic commerce and much more.
Best of all, you don’t have to master all of these technologies to be able to use them.
9. Make your Life easier
WordPress is a perfect platform for both beginners and advanced users. It adapts to be able to create any type of website thanks to its variety of plugins and themes.
Tasks that can normally be complicated or tedious with programming or code become easy with WordPress. Example: SEO configuration, creating forms, capture pages, text editing and much more.
10. Save Money
WordPress is a free platform. The initial costs to use it are a web hosting account (10 USD per month) and a domain (10 USD per year). You can use a free theme or a premium cost one (between $ 50 and 100 USD).
If we consider the minimum viable cost to create a website with WordPress – 20 USD, it is very very cheap compared to other methods such as hiring a programmer / designer to do the site for us or buying an expensive and poor quality HTML template.
If you identify with one or more of these ten points, it is time to take action!
WordPress is a very flexible platform, easy to use and accessible to any user, regardless of their experience.
