- Open source (free) software: Unlike expensive software programs like Dreamweaver, WordPress is free software. You don’t have to purchase a multi-user license or anything either.
- Powerful: There is almost no limit to what you do with a WordPress site. This makes it a fantastic platform for most local businesses.
- Easy to use: While there is a learning curve with anything new, WordPress is very easy to use once you get the hang of it. Even for those of us who know how to write html code … using WordPress and the visual editor is much easier! You can add content, photos, and so much more.
- Flexible: Unlike your web sites of old, making changes and adding additional features is very flexible in your WordPress web site.
