6 Brilliant looking WordPress Websites

I meet so many small businesses that are either updating, redesigning or launching a first website. I ask them to look at building a website using WordPress, they have heard of WordPress and think of them as traditional looking Blogs, so they dismiss it .

But I love and really Rate WordPress, it can be used very successfully as a Business site too. One of the main reasons for recommending WordPress is that it’s a system built with the express purpose of making it easy to publish and update content, it really boosts interaction with your visitors, and it’s always fresh .

When it comes to looking the part, there are hundreds of free themes and pug-ins to choose from, they sometimes need to be adapted as they tend to be designed for bloggers (but the adjustments are easy to do) and the community of WordPress users are brilliant when it comes to getting help.

Here are some great examples of sites powered by WordPress, they don’t look like blogs!

If you have a site powered by WordPress, tell us about it too.

  1. Hi,

    I use WordPress for my own website and for customers websites.

    Easy to learn and easy to add content means that you can throw something up quick… and amend it to fit what the market is looking for.

    My own website is http://www.digitalinsight.ie
    It’s a wordpress site based on the Lifestyle theme from http://www.studiopress.com.

    I’ve concentrated on content on my site, since the people who like it, read it, and contact me are already sold. I want to get a nicer logo/banner at the top, and will commission someone to create it and someone else to upload it. Likely under €100.

    For client’s websites I’ve created the following using a $70 WordPress theme (skin/template):
    http://www.dublinwashingmachinerepairs.com
    http://www.relianceinvestigations.ie
    This is the Essence theme from http://www.ithemes.com
    I can throw up a quick site in under an hour with these themes.

    Of course, writing good content takes much longer! 🙂

    Cheers, Andy

  2. Hi Helen
    We use WordPress for http://www.taxation.ie a taxation and financial information resource site for clients and future clients.
    As accountants and tax advisors we find WordPress easy to manage and maintain and great for following up new business stories and researching tax issues.

  3. Hi Helen,

    Some great sites there alright.

    I have only recently discovered wordpress and am amazed at how easy it is to make your own – and how many Plug-in features are available.

    I am learning about designing themes at the moment – probably the slowest part of the job, and think I will forego my antiquated passion for coding from scratch.

    Thanks again

    Shane

  4. Hey Helen,

    I put my little site together rather crudely using a basic wordpress template and some images I generated myself,

    It’s at http://clearpreso.com

  5. Hi Helen,

    We used a wde design company called Cookie Web Consulting (www.cookieweb.ie) to design and launch our new website, http://www.buytogether.ie, and they use WordPress in all or their websites.

    When they first suggested that we could amend our site content, we thaougt they were crazy.

    They gave us a tutorial and provided us with a very useful ‘Help’ document and now we can ‘blog’ to our hearts content, amend and add pages.

    Very importantly for us we can keep our website up to date and current. We can plan and exceute further site development more easily and cost effectively by having a functional understanding of WordPress.

    Love your Blogs

    Tim
