To be effective a site needs to be stable and reliable and it needs to give you the options to meet the unique needs of your audience.
Too many writers getting started on the web don’t realize what their options are and end up choosing an “easy” and “cheap” solution that turns out to be neither. They end up paying too much and not getting the kind of hard-working website they need.
I recommend the WordPress platform for writers’ websites, especially for writers who want to take charge of their own site to update their content.
Here are four reasons that WordPress is the best platform for a writer’s website:
1. It is Free
When you get a WordPress site, all the underlying code to run the site is available for free on the web. If you want to take the time to learn how to install and run it, you can do that.
If you prefer to have someone else do it for you, I can help you.
2. Easy to brand your site
With WordPress, changes to one page can apply across the board. And you can change the entire design in a few minutes adding your own colors and images.
3.It is uniquely Yours
Choose from literally thousands of WordPress designs and then customize the colors, layout, images, and fonts to present yourself in a way that best engages your reader.
4. It is search engine friendly
Ninety-five percent of web searchers never turn past the first page of search engine results. If you want to put your site before web searchers who are looking for you, you want to be as high in the search rankings as possible.
Google loves WordPress sites, because of the way they organize information. Aside from that, it’s easy to give the search engine programs signals about your site’s topic without ever dipping into the programing, so you can tweak it in moments without running the risk of breaking the site. Their are plugin for that.
Inexpensive, Unique, Customizable
WordPress recently logged more than 50 million sites using it. It’s the most commonly adopted platform on the web. It offers stability, reliability and almost unlimited options at a price any site owner can afford. If you’re planning your website, start with WordPress. You will be amazed at how good your book looks.
