More than a Content Management System
Here are 7 things you can do with WordPress that you might not know about.
1. Support Corporate Enterprise Level Websites
Enterprise level websites generally need to accommodate heavy traffic and require more robust hosting and security than typical sites. With over a decade of development and refinement behind it, WordPress has proven to be a reliable platform for many large companies, including:
- The Walt Disney Company
- Fortune Magazine
- Sony Music
and many others
2. Manage Multiple Websites
Building a network of sites? Running a business or restaurant with multiple locations? WordPress multisite installations enable you to run more than one website from a single dashboard while still providing administrators access to individual sites.
3. Create a Social Network
Want to build a social network? BuddyPress lets you build a community website using WordPress, with member profiles, user groups, timelines, messaging.
4. Build a Crowdfunding Site
Is your organization planning a fund raising event? WordPress can be used to create a crowdfunding site complete with goals, sponsorships, starting and ending dates, or even used for ongoing funding.
5. Offer E-commerce
Combined with WooCommerce, WordPress is a great e-commerce platform that will enable you to sell physical products or digital goods with product variations, multiple options, and merchant account choices. WooCommerce also provides great customer communication, inventory management, and shipping tools all from within your WordPress dashboard.
6. Promote and Manage Events
WordPress sites can be used to manage and promote events, including ticket sales, event registrations and RSVPs, e-minders, automated emails, and check-in lists and tickets that can be scanned upon arrival.
7. Build a Membership Directory
You can create a business or membership directory using WordPress, include front-end registration, multiple membership levels, and automated recurring billing.
