In recent months, two of my family members – both mothers and budding entrepenurs – are looking to start websites to sell their unique products. In both cases, I’ve encouraged them to use WordPress blogs to run their sites.
Here’s four reasons why mom entrepreneurs should take a look at using WordPress to run their websites:
1. They can easily sell your products using plugins like this. Get a PayPal account and integrate it into your blog.
2. They can get found and ranked in the search engines faster. Google and WordPress love each other. And with some of these essential tweaks you can help them start talking. Additionally, leverage the power of an actual blog on your site to create quality and regularly updated content, something Google looks for.
3. They can make it easy on themselves to update and maintain your site. A while back I gave my 8 reasons why I love WordPress … but simply put: A website powered by WordPress puts the power back in your hands to keep your website fresh.
4. And the bottomline is: They can do all this … affordably. Quality web hosting and a domain name can be purchased for less than $70 a year.
