Are you a fresh startup looking to launch your new business venture online for the first time? Or perhaps you have an established business but your website is in need of an update? No matter how big or small your business is, there’s many benefits of using WordPress for your website.

Yes, you heard that right. It’s free.

I know what you’re thinking… where’s the catch? Why is it free? The reason it’s free is because it’s an open source project maintained by a group of volunteers who are constantly looking to improve the platform and stay on top of any potential security vulnerabilities.

This makes it extremely versatile for a business in any sector. And the fact it’s been tested on millions of websites for over a decade has allowed it to be refined into what it is today.

Another big plus is that WordPress themes are fully responsive, so when visitors come to your website using a smartphone or tablet your website will automatically scale to suit the visitors device.

WordPress has multimedia capabilities that allows you to upload and manipulate images, videos, audio files and pdfs, as well as being able to auto-embed content from Youtube without having to create or copy any complicated code.

As a platform, WordPress is incredibly easy to use and intuitive, enabling millions of non-technical enthusiasts to successfully start and manage their own website.
