A lot of small and big online business are moving their existing websites to WordPress, and there are several reasons why this is a good idea and can be a great investment.
Before starting the migration process though, make sure you employ the services of a competent WordPress Website Design company. They usually don’t charge too much for such a migration, and will provide speed, reliability, security and quality of execution in exchange for their fee.
Now, let’s see a few factors that make this migration a safe and worthwhile investment!
From your perspective as a website administrator, the first advantage that becomes obvious with WordPress is the fact that you can easily modify your website without the use of any code editing software, such as Dreamweaver. All you need is a browser and an internet connection, and you can immediately log in as an administrator and begin reworking aspects of your webpage.
On the other hand, from a user perspective, WordPress is extremely friendly. It was initially designed as a blogging platform, and as such, everything is easy to find and clear. It’s very hard to get lost on a WordPress website, assuming it’s built right (this is where I need to remind you of the importance of hiring a competent web designer to redo your website).
If you already have a running website, you should be aware of the importance of search engine optimization already. And there’s no platform better suited to optimize search results then Wordrpess, mainly because the coding part of WordPress is clean and simple, that search engines have no difficulty filtering keywords.
Added to this, WordPress evolved from a blogging tool, which means it retained all the positive aspects of tagging, titles, commenting, and content type that can be easily filled with keywords.
A lot of websites today have separate blogging parts in order to take advantage of the benefits a blog brings to your business. With WordPress, you already have a blogging tool incorporated, with everything needed (RSS feeds, e-mail subscription plug-ins, commenting possibilities and social media sharing possibilities). This saves web designers a lot of effort into designing separate platforms and incorporating all these tools. Less work for designers means lower costs for you. It can’t get better than that!
With WordPress, you have no limitations when it comes to just how much content you upload to your site. You can have thousands of pages and posts without noticing the slightest drops in speed or stability. And this highlights another advantage of WordPress – stability and speed. Users browsing your site will notice a huge increase in responsiveness compared to your previous website, simply because WordPress code is so clear.
Lastly, you can assign administrative rights to as many people as you want. You can limit each individual administrator account to have access only to a certain features, depending on their field of expertise. This means that you can promote your bloggers to have moderating responsibilities, and at the same time, give access to your web design company to do regular maintenance and updates if they are necessary.
And best of all, you can do everything from your browser, with just a few clicks. So what are you waiting for? Get in touch with a professional WordPress Website Designers and start moving your website today. There you have little to lose and everything to gain!
