Why Use WordPress for Your Business?

WordPress was designed to make sharing information on the Web as easy as possible. Adding new entries, creating and updating pages, and even customizing the URL structure your site uses are quick and simple processes in which you don't even have to think about any sort of code. As the site administrator, user levels allow you to set permissions for employees and other people who might be updating or adding articles to the site, giving you control over who has access to what. Add a static front page and some custom menus, and your site visitors won't know that your professional, informative site is actually built on a blogging platform.
