How to Use WordPress – The Beginners Guide
WordPress – the Killer application of the twenty-first century! Never before in the history of man has it been so easy to get your message across to potentially millions of people with no knowledge of computer code and with absolutely no cost!
Once installed, WordPress gives you the power of the Gods! Just log in to your account, write what is important to you, press a button and whamo! You’re published!
No software coding required. WordPress is made for everyone – from the complete newbie to the hardened code hacker, WordPress provides anyone with any skill level to publish their thoughts for the entire world to see and appreciate.
Using tools such as “Fantastico” (available with most hosting companies), you can install WordPress is mere minutes with never knowing the difference between a byte and a nibble. You can make your installation as simple or as complex as you wish… from a basic one-page blog to a complete corporate web presence.
It’s all in your hands.
WordPress is Open Source software. This means that it is free for anyone to do anything with it that their heart desires. You’re free to install it… you’re free to change the code (if you have the skills)… you’re free to sell web sites built with it without worrying about royalties.
It’s yours to do with as you please.
So, what are some of the things that you CAN do with WordPress…?
Well, you can:
Build your very own blog site, of course! This is how most people get started with WordPress. But, blogging is only the very beginning.
If you’re an Internet Marketer (or considering becoming one) WordPress coupled with a sales page theme can be just as effective as hiring a graphic designer!
WordPress makes for a powerful business web site alternative. You no longer need an army of web developers on your business premises pounding out code in order to keep your site up and maintained.
For the moment, let’s just say that you are an online marketer who wants to have a stable of affiliate review sites promoting the very latest in ClickBank offers. The power and ease-of-use of WordPress quickly becomes apparent when you need to start building those sites.
Following domain registration and acquisition of web hosting, the next logical step is to build the web site itself. This can be easy enough using something like DreamWeaver – assuming you have the mountain of development skills necessary to make it work. I sure don’t!
This is where the power and elegance of WordPress come into the picture.
Using nothing more than WordPress and a sales page template such as “WP-SalesPage”, you can very quickly put together a classy and professional-looking review page that “Gets The Sale!” And, you can have the whole site finished within an hours’ time!
Try THAT with DreamWeaver.
Instead of fiddling with all those technical details that you really don’t want to spend time learning, you can instead concentrate on promotion. I can’t think of any good reason NOT to use WordPress for an online business!
How to use WordPress? The possibilities are endless – you’re limited only by your imagination and your ability to browse the web for a theme or plugin that will provide what you’re seeking to do.
Not too bad for free software!
