In working with local business owners it amazes me daily of how many still are not embracing the easy use of a WordPress (WordPress.org) platform structure for both the main and Mobile websites.
As many major Internet giants such as Google and Facebook develop ease of use plugins to make the entrepreneur’s social activities easier and cost effective, it is obvious WordPress sites are the way to pay it forward.
Changes could be made to your site, by yourself at a more quieter moment perhaps in the evening and you can go to your place of business the next day knowing you are staying ahead of the curve.
Today, Facebook just released a new plugin called “Facebook” which you can now publish posts from your WordPress site to your Facebook Timeline and Pages. It took me all of about 30 minutes to install and about 30 minutes to write this post and test the new plugin. But more importantly it was done FREE (well other than 60min of my time). Now for those of you who have the old “html” style websites and your blog is tied tightly with your webmaster, you are going to have to get them to install that for you and of course that is going to cost you. Not to mention your webmaster is probably going to have to teach you on this as well therefore more costs. This is why I always encourage local business entrepreneurs to move your websites over to WP Platforms as soon as they can. Enhancements are happening constantly as the world moves forward in the never ending changing world of platform info-structure marketing and advertising. Mobile, Local, Internet and Social Media is not going away it is only going to get bigger. So the sooner you embrace this new form of marketing and advertising for your local business, the sooner your headaches and overwhelm will go away. 🙂
This new “Facebook” plugin is a brilliant idea from the FB team. TechCrunch, Buzz Media and The Next Web are already using the plugin to connect with their audiences while providing users with more engaging and personalized experiences. The plugin is available for all sites on WordPress.com VIP as well. I don’t personally recommend WordPress.com as you do not own the website and I am always for increasing your real estate online to enhance the value of your local business.
WordPress powers 16.6 percent of the web, from The New York Times to People Magazine, and attracts more than 600 million unique visitors each month.
This plugin was made to enable WordPress content to be shared even more widely among people. What I see so far, I think I will enjoy it!
