Not Using WordPress for Your Event Website?

WordPress for Events

WordPress as a CMS (content management system) for meeting, conference, and event websites has seen explosive growth this year. I wonder how many are not using WordPress and why?

The reason can’t be the cost because the platform is free, most themes can be had for less than $75.00, and hiring someone to put it together to look shiny is somewhere between $500 and $5000 depending on how complex a solution you need……add in some other small costs for plugins and you can have a pretty amazing site on the cheap that will grow with you every step of the way……Hell, you can even do it yourself and skip the developer if you have a few hours.

Oh, the silly things that run through my brain……..Anyway…

    Interesting stats and timely for our event startup as we are adding websites with WordPress. Can you recommend good web designers who can make our theme “more shiny”? Thanks again for the solid info each week!

      Hey Sean, depends on what you are looking to do. Point me to the site you want to make shinier and I can see who would work….

        Thanks Keith- an example of our site is http://www.upstart360.com, it’s a solid theme, but needs some customization to make it better. I appreciate your thoughts on who could be a good freelance for our needs.
