Using WordPress for web design

The first thing that springs to mind when you hear “WordPress” is Blogs, however the development of the WordPress platform has dramatically changed the landscape of the free open-source software.

The WordPress community has built up a whole industry around the platform delivering everything you can imagine to produce a technically amazing fully blown dynamic website that will compete with the best sites out there.

The biggest problem the average person needing a website is getting a site up-and -running especially if you have limited computer knowledge. Firstly and perhaps the easiest route is to hire a WordPress web developer to design the site, this is fairly simple to do, an Internet search for a WordPress specialist in your area eg; “WordPress web developer Sydney” will bring up  a large choice of companies and freelancers who would help you out.

There is of course the DIY route, again using the Internet it is fairly easy to figure it out for yourself, there is always someone on YouTube with a tutorial on how to build a WordPress website, all it takes is a bit of time and a willingness to learn something new, fair enough it may be out of your comfort zone but it can be very rewarding and save you a lot of money on developer fees at the same time.
