WordPress is Inexpensive

WordPress is a Free CMS (Content Management System) designed to allow the owner/administrator to edit, update or add content whenever they want too. 

For many years website design and applications were based upon static HTML, dynamic Flash or complicated dynamic Database structures that required professional programmers to edit, update or change the content.

This meant that you either settled for a simple and hopefully inexpensive static HTML design which was hard to change, or a very expensive dynamic site that you could manage yourself. The cost and time involved in getting your webmaster to update the site was usually prohibitive and only large companies with big budgets could afford to pay for these services or the dynamic designs.

The CMS style of website development method changed that but many CMS systems were very basic and didn’t have the necessary built in functionality to allow non technical types to really do much. In addition the cost of having one built was significant.

WordPress is different because it a Free open source application with literally 1000’s of tech type individuals adding new plugins and add-ons that allow anyone to do just about anything they can imagine. You can add videos, forms, image galleries, new pages, new blog posts, membership options, newsletter options, forums, eCommerce stores, and much more to a basic WordPress design.  Some of these options are free and the rest are inexpensive.

If you want to link to your social media pages or anything else, it is easy to do with WordPress built in link tools and widgets. Widgets allow you add items to the sidebars or footer of your web pages.

Finally, there is so much free training available that you can learn what you need to know at a pace that is comfortable for you.
