There are PLENTY of small business owners, even my own friends, who want to setup a site/blog but they don’t want to spend hours during their evenings and weekends tinkering around the World Wide Web (www). While others have figured out how to set up their own site, but there are still those who still don’t know where to begin!
Don’t feel bad as there’s a hope!
WordPress Comes to Your Rescue
Today, WordPress is probably one of the simplest yet effective blogging tools available on the internet. Not only it’s absolutely FREE to use (as it an open-source platform), but you can setup a blog under hours, NOT weeks.
Trust me when I say this: WordPress is a very powerful Content Management System (CMS) that can be used MORE than just blogging.
For instance, you can use WordPress to create a “professional-looking,” “eye-catching,” and “creative,” website for your business, build a STRONG online presence through “fresh” designs, and increase your authority and credibility through online marketing.
The opportunities are endless for YOU with WordPress!
Not to mention, you do NOT require any programming knowledge to use WordPress. Heck, you don’t even have to know HTML! If you know how to setup a Facebook account and chat, you can do a LOT with WordPress.
It’s that easy it’s very beneficial for SEO efforts too.
You see, WordPress is better optimized for Google, Yahoo, and Bing – the world’s leading search engines. Meaning the website structure is designed in a way that WordPress sites have high chances of ranking better than those expensive dynamic website built from using scripts, PHP, ASP, and other snippets of codes.
With that said, let me tell why you, as a small business owners, MUST use WordPress for your website or blog.

You just need to make few changes, such as change the default “permalinks” and turn it into “SEO-friendly” URLs, submit it to Google, and insert keywords into a home page and on each page and blog posts, and your site will be optimized BETTER for the search engine.
“WordPress is made to do well in SEO,” says Matt Cutts, the SEO expert at Google.
