Grow Your Business Faster With WordPress

WordPress … do you know much about it?

Learning WordPress - A Small Business Owner's Guide

Maybe you know about WordPress, maybe you do not. You may be forgiven for thinking that WordPress is not really something that you need to waste your time with – perhaps because you’re a non-technical small business owner and you’ve heard that WordPress is essentially just a “technical” application best left to code-programming techies and geeks like website developers and website designers.

It’s easy to understand why you would be feeling this way. Perhaps you feel that, as a small business owner, your focus should be 100% on your business and not on technical things like websites. That’s why businesses pay web developers, web designers and web masters to build and manage their websites, isn’t it?

In the Digital Economy, your “offline” and “online” businesses are no longer two different things that function separately. An online presence is part of your business, and growing your presence online is as important as growing your presence offline.

Consider this:

Your Competition

No matter what business you are in, there is global competition for new customers at the local business level. You may not be targeting local customers online, but your competitors most certainly are. You need an online presence that allows you to remain competitive in today’s digital economy.

Ignoring your competitors can be costly

(Are you ignoring competition?)

Having A Website Is Not Enough

You cannot afford to not have an online presence. Your web site, however, can’t just sit there with static web pages that never get updated.

You need to continually market your business online through fresh content, social media, different channels and different content formats in order to let potential customers know that you exist.

Your web presence needs fresh content on a regular basis to stay competitive

Are You Communicating Online With Your Target Audience?

Marketing “to” your audience is not as desirable as communicating “with” your visitors, answering their questions or providing feedback on their ideas and suggestions.

As you are no doubt aware, customers nowadays expect an immediate response online, and the sooner you respond the better.

Talking "at" your audience is not as effective as engaging "with" them

(Talking “at” your website visitors is not as effective as communicating “with” them)

This requires a well-thought out plan and an online platform that enables you to successfully achieve your business goals.

An Online Vehicle That Can Truly Help You Grow Your Business Online

Although it’s true that lots of web developers and website designers are quite fanatical about WordPress, WordPress is not something that only “techies” and “geeks” get really excited about.

WordPress is not just for geeks and techies

Once you truly understand exactly what WordPress can do for your business online, you will be really excited as well!
