About This Class

Your website is the representative of your business. If your customers can’t trust your website, they really have no reason to trust you. Whether you have a blog or a website, the worst thing that could happen is to have your online platform attacked. This is where this course comes in: I created this video course with clear step by step instructions that will allow you to eliminate the security risks that wordpress sites and blogs face.

If you are not familiar with the basic functions of Wordpress, I suggest you take my "WordPress Begginers Course".

The Benefits Of Using WordPress As A Content Management System

1 – WordPress Is Free

Well, for a start, WordPress is completely FREE to use! In fact, you can download the full WordPress software application free of charge, and host it on your own domain without having to pay any software license fees whatsoever.

2 – WordPress Is Easy To Use

One of the reasons why WordPress has become so popular so quickly, is that it requires no technical or programming skills to use or manage.

Once WordPress is installed and configured, almost everything else, from using and running it, to redesigning and restructuring it, can be easily managed using simple interfaces and menus that require little to no web skills.

For example, WordPress has a built-in visual editor that allows anyone to create, format and publish content online quickly and professionally just by clicking on a few menu buttons. If you have ever used Microsoft Word, then you would have no problems at all managing your WordPress content.

3 – WordPress Is Powerful

WordPress provides users with a framework that is extremely flexible and scalable, making it almost infinitely extensible. One of the core principles of the WordPress philosophy (apart from developing it as an Open Source project), is to keep the core code as light and fast as possible while providing a rich framework that allows the growing community of WordPress software developers and web designers to keep expanding what WordPress can do with applications that enhance its core functionality (called Plugins) and flexible web design templates (called Themes) that allow you to instantly change the look and feel of your entire website in just a few mouse clicks.

What this all means, is that you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on web development and web design costs. You can start building a web presence with a basic, simple WordPress site, and then get it to do almost anything you want by adding a few of the tens of thousands of WordPress plugins available, or completely change the look of your site as often as you want with WordPress Themes.

With plugins, for example, you can add e-commerce, social-media sharing buttons, SEO optimization, integrate your visitors’ Facebook comments, make your site fully optimized for mobile devices, add custom videos and audio players, add newsletter forms and surveys, animated graphics and fading image galleries, make your pages printable, add sitemaps for visitors and search engines, block spam, and much, much more. And best of all, you can expand your WordPress site with thousands of plugins that will cost you absolutely nothing to download!

This is the same with WordPress Themes. You can choose the look of your site from thousands of professionally designed themes that are available at no cost to you.

4 – Websites Powered By WordPress Are Inexpensive To Run And To Maintain

Generally, free plugins and free themes don’t offer much in the way of support for users. In most cases, this is not a problem, as some of the most popular free plugins and themes are quite robust and their developers do provide regular upgrades to keep up with new WordPress upgrades.

Instead of spending thousands of dollars on web development and web design, therefore, you can start running a professional web presence on your own domain with a very minimal outlay.

5 – WordPress Puts You In Complete Control

With WordPress, you don’t need to spend a great deal of money to have a professional web presence, you don’t need technical skills or programming knowledge to run a web site, and you don’t need to depend on webmasters, web developers or web designers to manage your content or your site.

Once your WordPress site is up and running, all you need to do is learn how to use all of the powerful features and functions that WordPress makes available, so you can achieve anything that you envision doing with your site.

With WordPress, you can be in complete control of your own web presence!
