Works Out Of The Box

If you were to install WordPress and simply start using it ‘as is,’ you would have a fully functional website or blog that works ‘out of the box’ and that will help your business grow.

In fact, we’ve purposefully decided to keep the built-in web design template that came with the default installation for this website, so you can see how features like ‘Themes’ (see further below) let you get started on building your online presence straight away and only worry about things like web design later, after you start generating traffic and have a better idea of what your visitors are looking for.

WordPress Puts You In Complete Control Of Your Digital Vehicle

With every new version, WordPress is becoming easier to use. WordPress developers are continually improving their plugins and themes to make the platform and interface more user-friendly and intuitive. New WordPress features allow users with basic computer skills to perform complex tasks with ease.

It's WordPress, Jim ... But Not As We Know It.

(WordPress is continually evolving, improving, and adding new features!)

With basic computer skills and access to our detailed WordPress step-by-step tutorials, you can learn how to easily:

  • Set up a domain and web hosting account,
  • Transfer files between your computer and your server using free, easy-to-use software.
  • Install WordPress on your own domain using a one-click installation tool inside your web hosting management area.
  • Set up and configure settings for your new website or blog in your site’s administration area.
  • Customize the look and design of your website using easy-to-install themes and widgets.
  • Use the WordPress visual content editor and content management features to add, edit, delete, manage and publish your content.
  • Add new functionality to your website and transform your site into any kind of online business you want (e.g. e-commerce, corporate, portfolio, membership, services, event booking site, etc.) using easy-to-install plugins.
  • Manage users and maintain your website files and data backed up, protected and secure using easy-to-install plugins and inexpensive solutions.
  • Automate your web marketing and traffic generation.

In Summary …

  • WordPress takes less than five minutes to install and works “right out of the box.” A professional website can be fully installed and configured in just a day or two, not weeks or months.
  • You can set up and run a WordPress website for the cost of a domain name (around US$10) and web hosting (around US$3 – 10 per month or more, depending on the host’s reliability, support, whether you need a shared or dedicated server, SSL certificate for e-commerce, etc). WordPress itself is free, so the real costs involved are mostly for external components and time.
  • You can start very simply and inexpensively. We recommend purchasing a nicer (i.e. premium) web template than the freely available themes for access to support and investing in premium plugins if you need advanced features (e.g. booking appointments on your site, adding a membership site, e-commerce store, etc).
  • You don’t need to hire professionals or have coding skills to install, manage, or grow your digital business presence.
  • WordPress puts you in complete control of your digital presence.
