Websites for flyfishing trips? Selling widgets? Personal Assistant? Is WordPress good for all types of websites? Yes, in my opinion, almost all types of sites, to a large extent because all websites will benefit from having a built-in blog.
WordPress, as most online web software these days, has plug-ins that add to the program’s framework to give you the special functions that your product or service may require. You need a store, a way for customers to log-in or upload materials, a portfolio of products or photos, events – all manner of different options are available. Take a look at some of the examples below. I found a nice showcase of a gazillion examples, too.
Many of these vertical solutions are complicated to set up, but run very effectively ever after; some take trial and error to get right, or to select the right plug-in for your requirements. It’s all worth the effort in the end.
WordPress gives you the website you want, the keys to changing it, and a blog to talk about what your customers and prospects want to know. And, isn’t that just what you want your website to do? Better get started!
