The WordPress Website Platform.
WordPress is one of the most popular website builders available. It underpins over 33% of all websites on the web and has an army of dedicated developers and users all working together to deliver and share new features and efficiencies.
To build a website, you simply create an account, sign in to the WordPress control panel, and start writing a post (or page) or you can even start by selecting a WordPress theme…
Using a WordPress Website theme.
What is a WordPress theme?
A theme is like a set of new clothes for the structure of your website, you can change how your website looks, and sometimes functions, by selecting new themes. Themes can change how your website is laid out, or they can also simply change the colour scheme. The choice is always yours, you understand what your customers like, so the choice is yours.
Are WordPress themes free?
Yes, there are a lot of themes that you can install and use for free, that’s one of the many benefits of using WordPress to build your website.
You can always opt to pay for a custom WordPress theme. Paid themes are available from the WordPress management console and prices range from a few pounds to a few hundred pounds – it all depends on your specific requirements and taste.
We recommend choosing a free theme initially, and then see how you can unlock the potential by tailoring it to suit your specific requirements. Use the free online guides, and WordPress community to get to grips with WordPress and you will soon be able to master it.
Below are some examples of FREE WordPress themes….
Can I build an online shop with WordPress?
Yes, WordPress can be used to create a robust, usable online shopping website and this is easily achieved by using a free plugin to WordPress called Woocommerce. Woocommerce enables you to sell products and services directly to customers, with ease.
Woocommerce integrates seamlessly with WordPress and is quickly becoming one of the most popular ecommerce tools used for online shop creation.
What is ecommerce?
Anyone who has purchased on the internet has used e-commerce. Also known as the online marketplace, among the most familiar brands are Amazon and Alibaba, where you can get virtually any item you want or need quickly and easily. If you have bought something online, you have used ecommerce.
What to look for in an ecommerce website builder.
When choosing an ecommerce solution, you want it to have consistent user experience for both sellers and users. An overly complicated interface can create frustration and in turn, lose sales.
WordPress and Woocommerce combine to allow the creation of simple, usable online shop that has a seamless user experience from entry to the website to completion of the order. Everything can be automated, including shipping, order confirmation emails and inventory tracking. You can use an online shop to sell everything from physical products to virtual services and products.
