Using WordPress to build a site

When I work with organizations, one of the first questions I ask them is “Do you have a website?” Common responses are:

“Yes, but we don’t know how to use it.”

“Yes, but we never have time to update it.”

Very rarely do I get a flat-out no. And yet, if you don’t update your site – whatever the reason – you may as well not have one. If your site is difficult to use or update, you need to get a new site…and a simple one.

Enter WordPress.com. Yes, it’s a ‘blogging’ platform but blogs are pretty much websites and WordPress couldn’t make it easier for an organization to get a user-friendly website up and running in a matter of a few hours.

Why use WordPress?

  • It’s easy.
  • You can post via email or text – so if you don’t have time to log-in, you can just send your updates electronically.
  • There is a world of support at your Google fingertips. Don’t know how to do something? Google it. The millions of people using WordPress have no doubt already handled your issue.
  • It integrates well with Google Apps. If you are a nonprofit and not using Google Apps, you are missing the boat.

If you don’t have time to set up the site, email me. I can help you get it going and then turn over the keys to you to maintain.

It’s easy…really.
