One of the most common complaints working with potential clients in the Atlanta Metro Area is that: They have no idea how to update their site, “I have to get my webmaster to do that and I don’t know where he is”, “I don’t know how to add images”.
If you talk to enough Atlanta small business owners, or friends that want to have a website but don’t want to spend evenings and weekends tinkering around on the web, you’ll hear frustrations like this a lot.
Small business owners often feel there website isn’t that powerful to offer what other social media sites are offering. The fact that most sites now need to be interactive in some way offers a real problem for business owners that just don’t have the time to create a social platform or pay huge amounts of money to a Web Developer.
But here’s the truth: WordPress is one of the most versatile platforms on the Net today. Not only do small business owners have an opportunity to create, manage, and control content on their own site, but WordPress gives them power they never dreamed of having.
Social Media is here to stay, and it’s only going to get more interactive. Most Internet Users today have learned from companies like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn that fresh and NOW content is driving the force of the Internet. Social Media companies can help with branding, but the platform you use to launch it, is everything.
