You are a creative person looking to build a beautiful, professional website to showcase your talent, products or business, but perhaps are a little daunted by the prospect or don’t know where to begin. Well now, thanks to WordPress, it is easier than ever to do this yourself, and at minimal cost.
WordPress is a free system that allows you to create a stunningly professional-looking website without having to learn how to program.
It’s an immensely popular system—at the time of writing, 17.4 percent of all websites are built using WordPress, far more than any other platform. WordPress is a great solution for creatives because:
- A vast number of designs are available to you. There are layouts suitable for all kinds of creative websites.
- You can make your site look completely unique. You can keep your site up to date with the very latest information about your work and your projects.
