WordPress Resource Library for Digital Content
Building a digital resource library on your website is the perfect way to provide value to your audience and position your business as an industry thought leader. But you may be saying to yourself, “I’m not a web developer, so my resource center wouldn’t look good or even work.” For one thing, that’s negative self-talk and should be avoided at all costs. And for another thing, you don’t need to be a web developer to build a website. All you need is WordPress.
Using WordPress, anyone can build a content resource center that looks great and functions well. The platform has over 50,000 plugins, allowing you to customize your experience based on your needs. So, if you need a digital library to house your fantastic digital resources, plugins can help you do just that.
We’re here to discuss the benefits of WordPress and our top recommended tool for building your very own resource library.
What is WordPress and What is it Used For?
Simply put, WordPress is a platform that allows you to easily manage your website and publish original content. Originally, WordPress was created mainly to publish blogs. Today, it’s expanded into a full website builder that over 75 million people use to grow their brand.
With WordPress, you can build websites for:
- Business websites
- eCommerce stores
- Resource centers
- Social platforms
- And more!
Basically, whatever custom website you’re wanting to build, you can do so with WordPress. But when you search for WordPress online, you’ll notice that there’s both a WordPress.com and a WordPress.org. So, what’s the difference?
WordPress.com is easy to set up and is powered by WordPress.org’s software. It’s very user friendly for anyone with little to no experience creating websites. But since it’s hosted through WordPress, the downside is that you have less freedom than you would with a site that you host on your own.
On WordPress.org, you host your own website. That’s why it’s commonly referred to as “self-hosted WordPress.” It’s free, open-source, and allows you to install your own web host to build a site that’s yours. You’ll just need to choose a web host and hit the ground running with your fully customizable website.
At BNP Engage, we’d recommend using WordPress.org for long-term use. This option allows you to customize your website any way you’d like. You can install plugins, use custom website themes, and even monetize your site. With this option, you can build your online presence to new heights!
