🌠 WordPress and you… A New Hope Beckons?

Ever wake up one morning and think to yourself:

“Jeepers self, if only I could decide just *what* to use for my content marketing manglement… is it really WordPress? Or is it Memorex? Or hey! What about calling the local town clerk and asking who built the Death Star – perhaps you should use whatever they do instead!”

If so you’re definitely not alone – Bunches of peoples use WordPress so of *course* it has to be grand! (insert ominous Imperial March theme here)

That’s why you’ll love the following (and be sure to return back once you’re done so you can benefit from the additional resources I uncovered for you):

There, you’ll discover goodies like:

“…Even a Beginner Can Easily Setup a WordPress Site

Another important explanation why small companies should use the WordPress platform because it is simple to install (1-click install option in most web hosting). This assumes you don’t need to be a specialist in servers or hosting tech, because you won’t need them.

Simply put, when opening an account with a third-party web hosting server and they’ll configure it for you. You don’t have to do anything from your end except clicking here and there.

Since the WordPress platform is already loaded, configured, and streamlined when you sign up for a contract. Much better, the server can handle site installation for you, allowing you to concentrate on your work rather than your server….”

and

“…Customize Everything with Hundreds of Plugins

WordPress plugins, which are widely available on the internet, will help you bring more features to your website.

There are thousands of free plugins included in the WordPress plugin library, and many more paid plugins are available from marketplaces. Plugins are relatively flexible to install, and they help to expand the website’s capabilities…”

and more!

But one thing that’s hugely important that really DOES need to touch up…. WP Security!

Ensuring your site is secure is as delightful as conducting sword beach training in the sunrise, falling into the ocean, rolling on the sand (after removing your hakama; that goes without saying) and then trying to clean yourself off. 34 years later, you’ll still discover sand particles here and there – in other words WP Security can be a messy thingee indeed!

That being said, mastering one-click install of WP for beginners is a topic that could make for a grand challenge, cheatsheet, tutorial and more. You could structure it like so:

Step 1.) One-click Install WordPress!

Finally, move to:

Step 3.) Decide How You Want To Use Your Site and Make It So!

Good stuff!

Your takeaway?

Yes, WP IS hugely popular and yes, you can easily create a site from it but also remember the following.

Yes, 1000s of those nifty new neato coolio whiz-bang gee-willikers plugins and themes and roasted garlic options DO exist that slices, dices and walks the dog… but wait! There’s more!

Most likely, they were created with a security protocol reminiscent of trusting wolves to guard unwrapped Good Humor ice cream bars after a hard day of hunting….

So.

Be HUGELY mindful and take great care of your brand new WP site… it’s *your* blazingly wondrous business, after all, and deserves the very best care imaginable.

Enjoy!
