Thinking of building a website for your business? There are a lot of amazing content management systems out there, but none as popular as WordPress who are currently powering over 32% of the web – almost a third of all websites are WordPress. There are numerous reasons for the popularity of this CMS: the ease of use, the amazing plugin selection, the freebies; so, if you are thinking of building a website, WordPress should definitely be one of your first choices.
In this blog post, I’m going to share 3 useful tips and tricks to help you create an amazing WordPress website for your business.
Choose the right hosting provider for your WordPress website
One of the first things you need to do when building your website is to choose a hosting provider. This is incredibly important and something that you should definitely research thoroughly before making a decision: your hosting will impact your website’s overall performance and even your businesses’ results.

- Don’t overcomplicate things: go for a simple theme that has the features and looks you need; if you go for a theme that is too complex, too crowded or with too many features, it could potentially affect your website’s performance
- Check which plugins work with the theme you choose: there are some must-have themes that you really need to get (for example SEO plugins like Yoast SEO and W3 Total Cache or anti-spam plugins like Akismet) so you should check that your chosen theme definitely works with the plugins you most need or want to get
