Would love to get a discussion going on the various ways you use WordPress as part of your marketing plan.

What questions do you have?

Using Wordpress as part of your marketing plan is about the smartest idea you could have, it is so versatile and has such an enormous range of plugin functionality that it is in my mind an essential tool in any Marketers toolbox

As Dave can tell you. WordPress blogs are a vital part of our marketing.

Not only do you have the expandability of plugins, the customization of themes, and the versatility of a fully operational CMS, but the search engine marketing benefits themselves will put you ahead of your competition as Jon Chow is sure to tell you.

Major benefits are also found for those in PPC Publisher/affiliate roles using WPMU and building topic blogs. Other benefits are listed below and I am sure there will be some I miss.

Easy to SEO with plugins that will do 95% for you.

RSS Distribution and sharing to get your articles, ads, and links on multiple websites fast. It's link building on virtual auto pilot.

Built in ping engine, so it sends your post and pages to the search engines the minute you press publish.

Easy to add banners and ads to, with text sidebar widgets and the simple editor anyone can use wordpress that can copy and paste.

Even if you can't write a word of comprehensive text you can still blog to profits thanks to PLR's, Photo blogs, Video blogs, Pod casting, and Ghost Writers.

It's a list builder on multiple levels that people actually read. Not only can you add you sign up form to your e-mail list, but a simple to upload plugin will let you mail your blog subscribers from inside wordpress. You then have the best subscription of all and that is the RSS feed which regardless of search provider 99% of all users will have the ability to add news of your new post to their home page, desktop, or even as a browser popup.

Then the social media OH MY I LOVE THIS PLATFORM. Social media instant Tweets,bookmarking plugins, and share buttons.

Fact is that Wordpress is a Social Media Giant, built to put the word out fast and used properly, with the ads to the side or pages and good content in the blog it can be a millionaire meal ticket. Your own virtual printing press and just like owning a chain of news papers or news syndication service.

Politico and Real Clear Politic are two multimillion dollar blogs that prove it. Put content people want to read in the post and keep ads on the sides and watch your post land on hundred, even thousands of websites sending you a lifetime supply of targeted traffic.

I can't imagine building any website without having Wordpress incorporated in it in some way. I can only think of one of my websites that doesn't have at least a Wordpress blog in a subdirectory... and that one is getting a blog added before its finally launched, too.

Many of my sites run, not just the blog sites, run completely with Wordpress as a CMS. The flexibility of it constant development of the platform just makes it too easy not to use.

Wordpress by one year and half is became the key of every plan I start online.
Actually I'm so happy about Wordpress that I started a blog flipping business (I sell ready made blogs).

I think that WP advantages are :

1) Easy Installation (through CPanel)
2) Easy SEO
3) Customization
4) Visitors can say their opinion

See you,
Alessandro Zamboni

Wordpress has pretty much become the defacto standard for building a blog for most marketers today, especially if you want a platform that is relatively easy to install and equally as easy to maintain once you have it completely set up.

With Wordpress you have many choices to make of what you want the design and feel, so to speak, of your blog to be. But first you must make the important decision of how and where you are going to position your blog on the web.

We all know that anyone can build a free blog online but if you want to have more control and options available in the design of your blog, you should install a wordpress blog in your own hosting account on your own domain. However, those with limited funds usually go for the free option to start out.

With a Wordpress Blog hosted on your own domain you will have much more control over the look and feel of your blog and also there are many more so called Plugins available for your wordpress blog hosted on your own account, although that has been changing more and more in recent times, due to the vast amount of users of the wordpress platform and the support available.

A wordpress blog is something that once you build it, you don't want to have to move it later, when you have it all set-up and running the way you want.

Bottom line is, if you are planning on building a successful online presence using a blog then Wordpress is definately the way to go.

WHAT did we ever do without WP?? It is a complete package, and when you think of what we used to go through just to get something even close is unimaginable! RSS is almost automatic, and it was such a struggle with HTML sites. Placing photos was a nightmare, and WP is almost automatic. The photos stay right where you place them. I love WP!
