Our savvy prospects don’t justblindly trust these days; people buy from those they know, like and trust.Therefore slapping up a website with your products for sale simply isn’t enough.Here are 10 key reasons you need to use WordPress.org: 1. The blogging platform you use will make a huge difference in how your business flows. You will want your blogging platform to be user friendly. Better user-friendliness usually means sacrificing your websites flexibility and functionality. Under these circumstances you may feel forced to make a compromise between the two. 2. There doesnt always have to be a compromise between user-friendliness and functionality with WordPress. WordPress.org gives you much more control over the look and functionality of your site, so it’s better for most businesses. 3. You will need a blogging platform that will become a content management system for your business. The very best and simplest is WordPress. Originally created for blogging, WordPress has evolved into a full-blown website building and management system capable of many other applications besides blogging. 4. WordPress.org is free and has become the #1 business blogging platform in the Internet Marketing industry. While fairly simple to install and set up for those with a little technical knowledge, paying a small fee to a blog setup service may be the way to go for a non-techie. 4 ©2012- All Rights Reserved. http://TheHappypreneur.com

Using WordPress.org requires self-hosting. This means that you will need a hosting service that offers C-Panel hosting. C-Panel allows you to have an unlimited number of websites. You may think that you will only need one, but as you learn the ropes of online business, you’ll see that you will likely need more as time goes on. C-Panel allows you to upload and access your content any time you wish without need for a web master. That will be important to you as you build your internet business. 7. Owning a self-hosted WordPress blog is like having the deed to internet real estate; otherwise you are only renting and can be evicted at any time without your furniture and personal belongings. In other words your content is not your own, should the blog service cease to exist or crash and burn, you are out of luck. If your content disappears, it’s just gone. You can kiss it goodbye. With self-hosting, you are in control. You can have everything backed up and no one can send you packing. 5 ©2012- All Rights Reserved. http://TheHappypreneur.com
