Find three websites that will be great candidates to be created in WordPress. Explain why based on its structure and functionality.
I feel the following websites would be great candidates to be created in WordPress, e-commerce website, Job Board and a Personal Portfolio.
WordPress is free. It’s very easy to install and use. You have full ownership of the content. You can build something quick with WordPress. You could use a free theme or a premium theme. It provides intuitive interface and you don’t need any coding skills to manage it. It works on all devices.
WordPress is quickly becoming a popular option for building an e-commerce website. There are great plugins like WooCommerce, Easy Digital Downloads, and WPEcommerce which convert your WordPress website into a fully functional e-commerce platform. You can accept payments, manage inventory, shipping and taxes. It comes with user review and ratings, which means that you can give your customers the freedom to rate your products.
Acosta Honey is a company owned by a family friend. They sell a lot of honey, yet they do not have an active website where people could place orders. They have an active Facebook account that you could place orders, yet not everyone is on Facebook. I feel an ecommerce website from WordPress would give them more clientele
WordPress allows you the ability to easily create a Job Board where employers can post job listings and professionals can respond to them. WordPress Job Manager is a job listing plugin for adding job-board like functionality to your WordPress site. Being shortcode based, it can work with any theme and it is really simple to setup. You can add, manage, and categorize job listings using the familiar WordPress UI. Searchable & filterable ajax powered job listings added to your pages via shortcodes. Frontend forms for guests and registered users to submit & manage job listings. Allow job listers to preview their listing before it goes live. The preview matches the appearance of a live job listing. Each listing can be tied to an email or website address so that job seekers can apply to the jobs. Searches also display RSS links to allow job seekers to be alerted to new jobs matching their search. It also allows logged in employers to view, edit, mark filled, or delete their active job listings.
Monster Jobs would be a good job board that would benefit from a WordPress website.
You can create a portfolio website on WordPress with image galleries, and sliders. WordPress can be used to provide a very sleek and polished user experience for your portfolio site making it easier for others to browse and learn about your work. First you find and install the right theme and plugins from WordPress. You can choose a multipurpose theme (such as Zerif Pro) or look for something tailored to visual portfolios. As long as your theme has decent ratings and good documentation, you should be okay. Next, you build a header. Then build a project gallery. Put together an About Me section. Finally, set up a contact form.
Steve B. is a freestyle singer from the 90’s. He has a few followers and still performs. I feel he would benefit from a WordPress website so his fans could follow him and see him perform.
