WordPress is an Open Source project originally written to create blogs on the internet. Being Open Source means it’s been created by hundreds, if not thousands, of highly motivated and talented programmers, from all over the world. Together they update, improve and support WordPress keeping it at the cutting edge of web development. It also means it’s free!
WordPress has many other good points going for it too, including:
- Ease of use
- Simple to upgrade
- Thousands of free plugins
- A massive world wide support network
- WordPress is one of the internet’s success stories.
Last but not least, WordPress allows designers and developers to create custom themes to suit any niche. From fish keeping to field maintenance or butterflies to baseball, WordPress can be used to create beautiful and practical blogs or websites.
So what’s next?
Well, WordPress is coming of age and it’s now beginning to show its true flexibility and dominance of the CMS (Content Management System) world.
Due to its simplicity and ease of use, WordPress is being used to power some of the largest websites on the internet and is challenging some of the other mainstream CMS systems such as Joomla. But WordPress is not just limited to large corporate websites, it’s also perfect for personal and small business websites and blogs too.
So what’s in it for you?
As I mentioned earlier WordPress enables designers and developers to create custom themes for any client. Themes that will suit their business or personality perfectly. However, employing a designer can sometimes be a costly service and so this is where WordPress comes up trumps too.
Many themes are free and some are definitely better than others. Some themes are very flexible whilst others will eventually hinder the development of a website and will need to be changed. Luckily WordPress makes this easy too!
Free themes are great for some things but if you are serious about your business or your personal image on the internet, and lets be honest your should be, then a free theme is not the way to go.
Apart from their lack of support, features and longevity, free themes will more often than not require a link back to the designer at the bottom of every page. This (unless it’s your website’s designer) never looks professional and automatically makes you look cheap. If you’re not prepared to spend out on your website then how will you treat your own customers? It just looks tacky!
So, if you do take yourself seriously and your business is important to you, Premium WordPress Themes are the next logical step. They provide excellent quality, a unique image and all at a cost that’s easy to afford.
Premium WordPress Themes
WordPress Premium Themes are different. They can help a business or website owner to stand out from the crowd and due to their excellent coding, designs, features and developer support, allow for expansion and growth of the website and therefor a business. If you are for example in the fitness niche and you have, or you plan to make a fitness related website, then going for a premium fitness WordPress theme is the right way.
The other main benefit with a Premium WordPress Theme is the fact you can see what you are going to get before you part with your hard earned money. All developers will give a breakdown of the features that a particular theme will have and also allow you to ‘test-drive’ the theme on their website for free.
It’s a win-win situation for both developer and customer – you.
