I have a good friend that is a owner of a tree service, and the other day we were in a deep discussion about the type of websites that companies should have. But does this really matter? Well I can tell you ahead of time that by time our debate was over, the answer was pretty much, no.
We came to an agreement that it didn’t really matter what the website was made from, no matter what type of industry you are in whether it be tree service, limo, carpet cleaning, or whatever else. More importantly though, it doesn’t matter if you have a website at all if nobody can find it. It doesn’t matter if you bought the most expensive WordPress theme or even payed thousands of dollars for a website. If no one can find it, then there’s absolutely not much of a point in having one in the first place.
So that just about summed up our argument. But why did I turn this topic into some random post you may ask? I mean, this case study is quite a bit different from the other posts I do with WordPress tutorials and information. So to get back on topic: Does it really matter if companies like my friend’s tree service have a website on WordPress?
Well, it depends on who ends up creating the website.
For example, my buddy (who owns the tree service,) decided to design his first website with WordPress seeing as he thought he was very familiar with it. The website looked decent, but hey, it worked.
So after hearing about my buddy’s misfortune and watching hacking destroy the hard work of other people (especially business owners,) I would not even recommend WordPress for anything business related. Of course, there are much better security measures you can take to prevent things like hacking from happening, but it just seems safer to use Weebly or something similar. And just so you know, my tree service pal agrees, and wishes he would have just used Weebly in the first place.
So in conclusion, it is up to the specific needs of a business owner when it comes to websites being built with WordPress or a similar platform. To each his own.
