  • Positive: It allows us to sell our products to consumers and readers by using the business plan for a small monthly rate.
  • Negative: there is no way to sponsor blogs like there is for sponsoring Facebook posts. If this feature is out there I can't imagine it would be very effective, as the feed for WordPress can be overwhelming to most readers.
  • Positive: It has allowed us to expand our presence and has given us more creative control in running our business.

  • This CMS makes it convenient to edit content from writers, to clients and approve content to the blog.
  • Helps launch content by nearly anyone, and in a quickly manner.
  • It's simple enough that a non-developer can pick it up and create a website/blog.

  • A WordPress site can be professionally set up and fully configured in hours at no cost, other than the cost of purchasing a domain and web hosting.
  • A WordPress can be run and managed by users with little to no technical skills.
  • I have built WordPress sites for previous clients that quickly outperformed their existing static websites and continue to deliver new visitors from search engines and social media networks with very little work required other than adding new content on a regular basis.

Return on Investment

  • Positive - Free to cheap themes and extensions. It is possible to self-host a WordPress site and CMS for completely free or a fairly low price.
  • Negative - Some of the better themes/extensions cost quite a bit of money, or require a fair bit of coding experience/knowledge to implement from scratch.
  • Positive - Self-hosting capable. For companies with personal servers or trial credits for a computing service, WordPress hosting can be completely free and can completely offset of set the costs of typical monthly hosting plans available on third-party web hosting services.

  • While it’s not a hard number, WordPress improved the engagement metrics on our corporate site after the latest rebranding and much of our success was related to how easy changing content was.
  • Improved pages views through easy-to-use content creation

  • Since Wordpress is free and open source, the ROI is always strong. We get to build a custom website for each and every one of our clients. The client is thrilled and so are we.
  • Our clients tend to want similar pieces and moving parts on the website. I often re-use pieces from site to site which really speeds up the development process.
  • Sometimes clients already want to use Wordpress for their next web project. And since we are very familiar with it, it makes for a smoother sale and on-boarding process.

  • WordPress has allowed my company to quickly get into content marketing (blog posts, ebooks, case studies, etc.) without any support from the developers, as marketing owns the delivery mechanism (WordPress)!
  • One negative aspect of our WordPress usage is that, because it is so easy-to-use and we've made it apparent we don't need developer help to support it, when we actually do need developers for a non-WordPress related project, we can't get the help!
  • WordPress-hosted forms/landing pages bring in the majority of our leads, which end up in sales demos and eventually new revenue.

  • With WordPress we save money by not having to build our own CMS (content management system) for work done for clients.
  • With WordPress we save money because there are thousands of addons that provide excellent features and functions that are free or very low-cost.
  • With WordPress we save money because there are thousands of expert-level developers with WordPress skills available around the world with whom we can contract for development work.

  • I don't personally run sales through my WordPress pages, they're all done through my ClickFunnels pages, however the indirect ROI is extremely positive because it is a place where potential clients can learn more about my brand and grow to like and trust our business.

About WordPress

Wordpress is an open-source publishing platform popular with bloggers and a content management system. The appearance of a Wordpress site and many of its functions are managed through themes, and further customizable through altering code, though altering code is not required; templates and plugins to expand its capabilities are plentiful. Wordpress features integrated link management, and a search-engine friendly permalink structure. WordPress now allows multiple blogs to exist within one installation. Websites may host their own blogging communities, controlling and moderating content from a single dashboard.

Wordpress is popular due to its simplicity and modifiability. Furthermore implementing Wordpress costs only time. Two paid versions exist. The $99 premium plan allows a user an ad free custom domain with 13GB of space and advanced customization. The $299 Business plan allows unlimited space and supports eCommerce as well.
