WordPress is, in simple terms, a Content Management System (CMS – for DIY content updates, etc.) and open-source platform used and trusted on thousands of websites today (including the Rolling Stones, Motley Crue and People magazine, to name a few). It’s proven, flexible (and expandable) in it’s functionality and features…and it’s user-friendly for publishing your content (DIY updates, pages, revisions, etc.). Originally released in 2003 as a blogging publishing platform WordPress has evolved in to a powerhouse CMS.
WordPress powers nearly a quarter of new sites today, is the content management system (CMS) of choice for more than two thirds of the top million sites making it the most popular on the web, and is trusted by content publishers both large and small including CNN and the NY Times. With more than 50 million sites globally and 12 years of proven history, you know you’re getting the best software for the job.
At the core of WordPress is a dumb-simple interface similar to the desktop publishing software you use today. With no coding experience or expert knowledge necessary, the learning curve is often about as short as typing in your site’s URL and logging in. In fact, most users are able to pick up the basics without any training at all. Interfaces are polished and easy to use, and are the result of years of refinement. It’s the power of Microsoft Word with the intuitiveness of an iPhone.
WordPress makes sharing content and attracting readers to your site a breeze. Whether pushing content to social networks, ensuring that your website is provided in the optimal format to appear at the top of search results the moment you hit publish, or providing visitors the ability to subscribe to specific content sub-feeds in their favorite feed reader (or even via e-mail), WordPress is not simply a website, but rather a content-publishing platform. With a single click, you have a powerful megaphone to broadcast your message to the world.
