What is the so special about WordPress? WordPress is your simple and easy way to set up a blog with minimal programming requirements. WordPress gives you a plethora of themes, theme resources, and the ability to use images, and various blog designs and layouts. I can elaborate all day about the basic features and benefits of WordPress, but I have to admit that most of us use WordPress for one simple reason. We use WordPress to make money. In this case, I don’t talk about wordpress.com, a standard blog from wordpress, but I talk about wordpress as CMS with wordpress.org.
Here’s a quick example of how WordPress can change the way you blog forever:
- You have a few websites and already are earning some decent money from them so you have a full time programmer on retainer. You’ve heard about WordPress and how it would allow you to set up your blogs with little or no effort.
- You like the idea but don’t want to pay the programmer so you decide to tackle it yourself. It’s easy to downloaded the pages and open an FTP connection to your website. You then uploaded the documents and set up the database connection. Within minutes, you are working with a WordPress setup on your website. It was that easy.
- You can now set up all the theme, feeds, and template tags you need. All done within an hour. After this, you would simply copy this setup to other websites and change the header information to the match requirements at your other websites. You accomplish all this in less than 30 minutes.
- Best of all you didn’t need to take up your programmer’s valuable time.
- You can then go on to embed Google Adsense ads and other advertising in the blogs. A few strategically placed links on pages that are already indexed and your blogs are up and running!
