WordPress is one of the most popular blogging tools available, yet many people don’t know is that it is a powerful Content Management System (CMS) that can be used for more than just blogging. With WordPress you can build a blog, a website, or both. It will rank higher on Google than a non-WP site and you won’t be held hostage by your webmaster.
Net Ingenuity produces effective, findable websites and uses the Web and social media in ways that compel others to work with our clients. Content is clarified, organized and presented eloquently, with the right words, appropriate style and proper grammar. We design custom themes for WordPress and provide WordPress coaching.
