    Over the past few years, you would be hard pressed to find any company – regardless of what products or services it offers – that does not have its own website.

    Having a website can promote your company to the world – and in many cases, this far-reaching advertising can be free. But what do you do if you aren’t really a “technical” person, but you need to get your business online?

    One solution is to use WordPress to build a website.

    Wordpress initially started out as a blogging platform, and it has grown exponentially over time to offer websites – both free and paid – for companies and individuals. In fact today, WordPress is considered to be the largest website building platform in the world, powering more than 25 percent of all sites.

    The WordPress site offers step-by-step instructions on how to get from Point A (no website at all) to Point B (a website with a theme, photos, and other amenities such as the ability for site visitors to leave comments, and the ability to link out to other websites, such as an affiliate sales page). And, basic websites can literally be set up in less than an hour.

    By following the WordPress setup instructions, you’ll be able to build a nice looking website, and to make your company visible to millions of people around the globe – even if you’re working from a small corner of your house or apartment!). So even if you don’t consider yourself to be a “techie,” you can accomplish some pretty awesome results.

    If you built your company’s website, how did you go about doing so? Which platform did you use – and was it easy or difficult to get the result that you had hoped for?

    I currently use WordPress for a large majority of my websites! Although my business does have dedicated developers to help with things get a little technical 😀

    Wordpress is a great platform to build a website through. I consider myself to be pretty technically challenged, but when walking through the WordPress website building information, it is pretty easy to do. And, it gives your site a cleaner look than some of the other web building platforms. When building your company’s website, it is important to keep in mind that the site will oftentimes be the very first impression someone gets of your business, so it should look nice, and contain helpful content that will keep visitors on the site (and of course, move forward with becoming a customer).

    Starting with a simple 5 page website is about all that is needed in the beginning. Once a business generates some money then they can look into semi-custom or custom builds where they would want a dedicated website team of developers, designers, and writers.
