Big brand names who use WordPress as their choice platform know the benefits and attraction this website space has for their brand. WordPress allows for a powerful SEO business strategy for your website. In addition, WordPress is incredible for building a trusting reputation with Google search and social media.
WordPress is easy to use, secure, and free. I’m not saying you should become a website designer. Far from! I’m suggesting you create and manage your brand through a website that looks, feels, and acts like nothing that’s out there. Someone serious about their business’s future should build an expandable foundation. Because you deserve to share your brand and identity in a unique way that separates you from the pack.
These brands go with WordPress; it’s the only platform I have used since 2009.
So many other platforms like Shopify are marketed to sound easier, especially to entrepreneurs and small business professionals. But they’re expensive (WordPress is free) and not very flexible or visible online. They can be a great starting point but not a lasting website and online identity plan.

If you see your brand expanding in the future, platforms like Wix, Squarespace, Shopify, hosting templates from GoDaddy, and supposed all-in-one solutions such as Kajabi will not be scaleable at certain levels.
Why do you think these top brands use WordPress when they all have million-dollar budgets?
And NO, your social media profiles never replace your website… ever. When someone wants to invest thousands of dollars in your services or products, they don’t do it because you show off only one impressive Instagram profile. Working just off one platform you don’t even own and operate is naive. The truth is a social media platform is a company that can close its doors at any time without notice. Your brand, branding, and brand identity are a mix of many facets of a successful brand. Your website is your central hub and is all organized and alive within your website.
Your website is part of your brand identity. A website is your brand’s universe to express yourself and appreciate your customer. A website is an experience with intrigue, play, and solutions for your customers. A website is the soul space that organizes and encompasses everything online in one spot too!
WordPress isn’t just for big brands. But if the head honchos of the world are using it, doesn’t it say something?
Hi, I’m Alley Jean, and I help creatives, coaches, and healers turn their purpose into a strategy. My passion is bringing a big vision to life! The love and individual attention I give each client is exclusive and purposeful. I don’t use templates or blueprints; every identity I create for my clients is expandable, creative, and one-of-a-kind.
