Building Social Media Friendly Business Websites: New WordPress 3.3 Update

Building Social Media Friendly Business Websites: New WordPress 3.3 Update

WordPress.org, the platform in which I build CloudBerrySocial.com on, has just released the new version 3.3. WordPress 3.3 is a more user friendly version of WordPress with new drag-and-drop features for adding media, along with a few other neat updates. If your not familiar with WordPress, it was originally developed as  a blogging platform but is now used to create millions of business websites.

Here are the main reasons I like to use WordPress to build client pages:

1. Great Search Engine Optimization

WordPress sites can be easily found in Google or other searches because if it’s high-tech SEO tools.

2. Highly Customizable
Wordpress can be used to create nearly any time of website imaginable, from a simple blog to a high-tech e-commerce site.

3. Awesome Social Media Integration
Since it was originally created as a blog platform and therefore social by nature, WordPress allows for thousands of different ways to integrate social media into your website. You can have everything from Google +1 buttons to the ability to let people log into your site using Facebook.

4. User Friendly
WordPress isn’t ex
actly as easy to use as say, Facebook, for a first time user. Once the site is built however, it is relatively simple for my clients to learn how to update their own blog or to add a simple webpage with photos or videos. WordPress 3.3 is making this even easier.

If you are not familiar with AimClear, they are a local Duluth, MN company that is internationally known for their experience and ideas regarding Facebook advertising. AimClear CEO Marty Weintraub’s recent book titled ‘Killer Facebook Ads: Master Cutting-Edge Facebook Advertising Techniques’ is currently the number one book about Facebook ads on Amazon, and holds a five star rating. I haven’t yet read the book, but I’m buying it on Amazon tonight along with a few Christmas presents and plan to read it soon. In a later post I’ll let you know what I think of it along with a few sections that I think are especially worth checking it out. Stay tuned.
