WordPress, A Wise Investment

WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time. We believe it’s the future of web publishing. WordPress makes content managed websites affordable and easy for the common public. With a basic knowledge of the web, anyone can now become the master of their own domain. Organic Themes uses WordPress as the framework for all of our themes. And with the new release of WordPress 2.9, it’s better than ever. Here are just a few of the things that WordPress can do for you:

Content Management. WordPress is easily content managed. There is a small learning curve like with any new software, but after a very short time it’s as easy to manage as a Facebook or MySpace page. Rather than paying a firm or freelancer to constantly update your site, you can now make changes instantly yourself. That saves you a great deal of time and money.

Search Engine Optimization. WordPress is designed to be very search engine friendly. Meaning, your Google rankings will generally be higher than many other types of websites. The more people that find your website, the more traffic and exposure you will gain. In addition, plugins such as the “All in One SEO Pack” can greatly help your search engine optimization as well. Which brings me to my next point…

Plugins. If you want any kind of feature for your site, a WordPress plugin probably exists for it. There are plugins for web advertising, flickr, twitter, e-commerce, newsletters, weather, surf reports, RSS feeds, SEO, Google Analytics and so many more it’s ridiculous. Many of these plugins are developed as “widgets” that can easily be added to your site using a drag and drop system with the WordPress content management system.

Themes. We all grow tired of our website designs over time, but changing the design has always been such a hassle — until now. With WordPress themes such as Organic Themes you can change the design like you would change a suit. Meanwhile, all of the content remains the same. There’s no hassle of copying and pasting all of your content to a new site. Organic Themes offers premium themes. Our themes utilize the best quality of design and development and have features not found in most themes.

Blogs. Until recently, WordPress was most widely known as a blogging platform. However, it’s ease of use and updates to the WordPress engine have made it the perfect tool for managing entire websites, not just blogs. That being said, blogs are naturally integrated in to WordPress powered websites and a great way to attract visitors to your website.

Cost Effective. Although WordPress can be downloaded for free, the hassle of installing the framework, setting up hosting, designing and developing a theme and installing plugins can often be very time consuming to those unfamiliar with the process. Organic Themes essentially offers premium quality WordPress websites and services for a fraction of the cost of a typical content managed website.

These are only a few of the perks to owning a WordPress powered website. To learn more about the exciting developments of WordPress cruise on over to wordpress.org, and cruise back over to Organic Themes for a premium theme.
