Using WordPress for you website (with or without a blog) can save you time and money; and increase your rankings and traffic.
WordPress also empowers you by enabling you to take control of your site and manage it for yourself. No more waiting on the availability of your web developer to make the changes you want – simply do it yourself, right now, from home, work or anywhere you have access to the net.
I used to, and occasionally still do, design and develop websites from the ground up, but now I encourage all my new clients to consider WordPress as the backend Content Management System (CMS) for their website. If you are considering converting your current site to WordPress please contact me to discuss how I can help you achieve that goal as quickly and easily as possible.
