Now you might be wondering why you should use WordPress to build your website, instead of one of the other platforms, like Wix or Square Space?

Well, personally I’ve been using WordPress for 7+ years at the time of writing this, and can tell you from experience that it just keeps getting better!

It’s the same platform trusted by businesses like CNN, FORBES, and EBAY…

And celebrities such as JAY-Z & KATY PERRY to name just a few.

Here’s the full list of WordPress Notable Users:

Oh, and just so you know that I’m not being bias, I’ve used Wix to create a few different sites in the past, and even created a tutorial on how to use it on another channel of mine.

I’ve also used Square Space & Weebly as well, although admittedly not quite as much as WordPress and Wix.

But from the experience I have, I can tell you that WordPress is not only the best choice for anyone wanting to create their own, professional website, but it’s also the easiest to learn, and the cheapest to maintain!


Just hit play, and we can start building YOUR WordPress website… TOGETHER!

Until Next Time,
