Why Startups Should Use WordPress?

Why Startups Should Use WordPress? It’s a fair question that deserves explanation. Many startups in business may start with some core initial clients or customers, but ultimately it’s a simple fact that they need more clients and more business going forward. That’s a fact for most small businesses.

the Irish 2019 Digital Health Index 2019 noted that “Two-thirds of Irish consumers consider businesses that don’t have a website to be ‘outdated”

Many of you have been advised that you need a website-like it or not it goes with the territory nowadays in business.

Many may feel with some justification that this is yet another layer of work to cater to and this statement may have a point. However, we now live in a digital age where what was” traditional word of mouth recommendation” now takes place online probably more so than in the local rugby club. I am, not suggesting that traditional advertising methods or old word of mouth recommendation is not important because it still is.

But now in the busy times we live in, many communicate through online mediums and recommendations here are equally important too. People spend a significant part of their lives online and you need to be there too to “meet and greet”.
