If you use a WordPress website, congratulations on the great choice!

WordPress is the most popular content management system for websites on the internet for good reasons. WordPress is free, user-friendly, has plenty of features and a never-ending add-ons from an amazing community.

You probably have a website for a specific purpose, be it a blog or business website to showcase products and services, or to do e-Commerce.

And because you are using WordPress, here’s what you need to know.

WordPress needs to be always updated with latest version

  • Updates could include support for new technologies, new features, and most importantly, security updates. Outdated WordPress websites are the ones getting hacked most of the time.

WordPress themes and plugins need to be updated

  • With the updates in WordPress happening, themes and plugins also need to be updated in order to be compatible with the latest features, technologies and security. Incompatible themes are plugins could cause problems to a WordPress website.

You can manage WordPress design and content using Drag and Drop

  • Over the years, the WordPress community has come up with easier ways to design WordPress posts and pages with ‘visual builders’. ‘Visual builders’ allow you to easily click and design the layout of the page, and then drag and drop different kinds of content onto the page. These tools are so powerful you can even selectively decide whether you want an image to appear on mobile, tablet and desktop just by clicking a few checkboxes. It’s a dream for non-technical people to design and build pages in WordPress so easily. In our many years of WordPress web design, we found that Divi Builder is the best visual builder in terms of features and ease of use.

WordPress Support is affordable

  • When things get too technical, support is available and affordable. If you are in Singapore, getting good WordPress support is challenging. The majority of Singapore web design companies are good at designing WordPress websites but are not proficient in the technical aspects of WordPress. At Smmile, we do in-house development if WordPress themes and plugins so we consider ourselves to be pretty good in the technical aspects of WordPress. We came to realise that many customers find ad-hoc WordPress support expensive, due to the fact that ad-hoc support is priced according to what has to be done. So we came up with a Unlimited* WordPress Support package that works like insurance for your WordPress website. And at just $99 a month, there’s no reason not to insure your WordPress website. Contact us to find out more.

 

Your business is important, so is your WordPress website representing your business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without holidays.
