The most compelling reason to use WordPress for your website, in my personal opinion, is that my customers don’t just get a website (that they can’t edit), but also access to a powerful dashboard that I can train them to use in hours instead of weeks or months
In WordPress you have two basic choices to add content to your website: Pages and Posts.
Pages are exactly what it sounds like, webpages. Examples of pages are your “About” page, a page that shows a map and gives directions, a staff directory or any other static (doesn’t change) display of information about yourself or your comapny.
Posts are where most of you updates will occur and are displayed on your homepage or blog. A good example of what posts look like on your website can be found on my “Blog” link in the main menu at the top of this page.
The main advantage to using using posts is that it shows visitors to your website that the information there is fresh. Have you ever been to a website and wondered if the information was recent, accurate and still true? Using posts on your homepage or a blog page shows visitors with a date stamp that you were on your website updating it with your most recent information. Additionally, posts are an excellent way to communicate in a more personal way to your customers. By speaking to issues relevant to your business in the form of informational articles you demonstrate your expertise and mastery of the business the visitor is contemplating using.
