為什麼選擇WordPress建立網上商店呢?

WordPress.org和WordPress.com之間的區別是什麼?

我們知道您問甚麼,當您在Google或Yahoo中鍵入”WordPress”,並想找出WordPress.org與WordPress.com間的分別,往往找不著明確的答案,甚至很混亂。

WordPress.com是一個免費的博客(Blog)網站,如果您登記使用WordPress.com的博客,您沒有很大的控制權,一切都依照WordPress.com訂好的介面上操作,有較少的功能,較少的控制,您的網站效果也將變成這樣簡陋乏味於低功能性,同時意味著,如果WordPress.com發生問題或關閉了,您的網站亦然。

如果您運用WordPress.org,其實首先您會安裝WordPress軟件程式在您的電腦,再像安裝軟件那樣安裝到您的網頁寄存空間。這使您可以完全控制您的網站,讓您擁有它,和控制它。想像一下您購買一套軟件,例如Microsoft Word,您買下它,安裝它,然後它就永遠屬於您的,就算微軟倒閉了,也不會影響到您。

網上商店課程」會一步一步地解釋如何建立和維護您的網站。

WordPress不只是用來做博客(Blog)嗎?

不是,您可以使用WordPress建立您的整個網站,就如formwelkin.com的課程介紹,同時也包括您正在看的「設計博客」。運用WordPress,您可以更新和編輯您的網站,包括添加頁面,文字和影像,而無需任何HTML或網頁設計軟件的知識。

我不是很會用電腦,我真的可以建立自己的網站?

您不能說這樣的藉口了!您在WordPress輸入內容,跟您用Word輸入內容,做法幾乎完全一樣。您只需輸入您想顯示在您的網站上的東西,選擇字體,顏色和大小就搞定!

關於WordPress的另一個強大的功能是,如果您需要加HTML和編碼,您也可以做到!怎樣做?不用擔心,WordPress提供了用戶控制介面,讓您可以使用您的編程技巧輕鬆地配搭各種效果。

實際一點,用WordPress要用多少錢?

WordPress是一套安裝到您的網頁寄存空間的免費軟件。正如之前所說,您只需要購買您的域名和網頁寄存服務(可以分開或同時買到)。這些服務商基本上都差不多,但必須清楚知道,您所需要用來使用WordPress的域名和網頁寄存服務,是唯一不是免費的部分。

所以,建立網站所需成本有以下3項:

[list style=”orb” color=”black”]

  • 買一個域名:例如www.myfirstshop.com.hk,一個域名市面每年大概花費$250
  • 買網頁寄存服務:市面每年大概花費$500
  • 時間:熟習WordPress或需時,您必須要就您的設想規劃一下

[/list]

外掛(Plugin)是什麼,我要付錢用它們嗎?

WordPress提供了超過10000個免費的外掛/插件(Plugin)。外掛是提高WordPress功能的工具。幾乎每一個需要有一個外掛,您只是需要用Google,或到http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins搜索。

一些最受歡迎的外掛,例如All in One SEO Pack自動優化您的WordPress博客的內容搜索,Facebook Like Widget可以讓您添加Facebook的“Like”按鈕,以及Optimizer外掛,運用到Google Website Optimizer讓您優化您的目標頁面(如文章或網頁)。

技術總在不斷更新我怎知道我的網站需要更新?

WordPress其中一個利害之處是它會在需要更新時提醒您。任何需要更新的東西(外掛,功能等)它都會通知您,而您只需用滑鼠單擊一個按鈕就完成更新。

p

我可以改變我的網站的主題或顏色嗎?

有沒有想過一個主題或顏色,令您覺得完全配合您心目中的網站設計?別太擔心介面設計的問題,WordPress讓您可以在任何時候只須用滑鼠按下,就能改變介面佈置,網上還有超過17,000個免費的主題任您選到滿意為止!

那麼實際上我可以在WordPress網站上改變甚麼?

WordPress其中一件的偉大之處,是它考慮到使用者需要。簡單用滑鼠按下,您可以在任何時候更改主題、顏色、頁面名稱、內容等。

WordPress是否適合我的生意?

WordPress適用於任何大小企業。如果您是剛剛起步,那太好了。如果您已經在為您的網站建立更多訪客,非常好!Wordpress由大型網站如美國南佛羅里達州大學,至小型如主婦煮食日記都一概做得出來!

要看到用WordPress所開發那種類繁多的網站,可以到Showcase看看。

我可以在我的WordPress的網站做網上生意嗎?我可以接受付款嗎?

網上有各種免費的WordPress電子商貿外掛讓您無痛安裝。即使您決定付錢去買,大部分都低於$400。只要在Google搜索一下”e-commerce plugins”,您會發現真的很多!

您可以接受付款,但是這一切都取決於您使用的外掛。您使用的電子商務外掛類型將取決於您的業務和電子商務的功能和目標。例如WP e-commerce讓您接受支票,匯票,Paypal,Google Checkout和Chronopay。

我在網上生意賺了的錢會分了給WordPress的,是嗎?

不會!您的網站的任何流量和關注,都是您的!您的網站是屬如您的。假如您的網站真的做得很好,您得到比以往更多的客戶,那些利潤都是給您的!您惟一需要注意的是,一些網上接受付款系統會按月收取交易手續費,就如您在一些小店刷卡須比現金價貴一點點那樣,您可以把這視為在店面租一個保安穩妥的刷卡機服務,Paypal最高的手續費是的誇境交易手續費3.9%,如果每月收款多,會獲得手續費優惠,詳情可參考Paypal帳戶手續費詳情

所以您大可拍一拍自己的胸膛,別擔心,WordPress不會吃掉您的利潤!

我可以將社交媒體整合到我的WordPress網站嗎?

請務必要這樣做!將社交媒體整合到您網站每一部份這任務是超級重要!網上有許多免費下載的外掛,會自動在您的網頁上嵌入鏈接分享。您有沒有上過一些企業網頁,找到“Like”或“Follow”按鈕,讓您可以追蹤他們的動態資訊呢?歡迎來到社交媒體的商業推廣世界!

您可以將Facebook動態整合到您的WordPress網站,在側邊欄顯示最新的社交動態,以及加入多個社交媒體的分享按鈕到您的文章和網頁上。

網上有一些社交媒體外掛可以在您的網站上製作一個小欄,讓您把您的社交媒體網站(如Facebook專頁)在您的網站上顯示出來,formwelkin.com右側的 “Like Form.Welkin”就是一個好例子!

讓您的WordPress網站的社交媒體中心吧!

What’s the difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com?

We get it. Typing in “WordPress” into Google or Yahoo and seeing that there’s a difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com can get confusing.

WordPress.org is what formwelkin.com is based on, and what we refer to in our “E-marketing course” and what we recommend in helping you build your site.

WordPress.com is a free blogging site where you don’t have much control. It’s all hosted on their site so if you sign up for a blog on WordPress.com, you have less functionality, less control and your website is going to be something dull like that. If WordPress.com goes down or disappears, your site does as well.

With WordPress.org, you actually install WordPress software to your computer and install it on your web host just as you’d do with software. This gives you total control over your website so that you own it and you control it. Think of it as when you buy software such as Microsoft Word. You buy it, install it and then it’s yours forever whether Microsoft were to go out of business or for whatever reason.

Our “e-marketing course” offers awesome step by step explanations of everything you need to know about creating and maintaining your website.

Is WordPress just for blogs?

No, you can use WordPress to build your entire website like all the course pages in formwelkin.com as well as this Design Blog that you are currently reading. With WordPress, you can update and edit the site including adding pages, text and images without any knowledge of HTML or web design software.

I’m not very computer-saavy, can I really build my own website?

You can’t use that excuse anymore! You type into WordPress almost exactly like you would type into a Word document. Simply type in what you’d like to appear on your website, choose the font, color and size and voila!

The other great thing about WordPress is that if you are into html and coding, you can! No idea what that even means? No worries. WordPress gives the user control and lets you work within your comfort level if you want to get fancy schmancy and put your coding skills to use.

How much money do I have to shell out in order to use WordPress?

WordPress is essentially free software that installs onto your domain via your web hosting company. As we get started, all you will need is to purchase a domain name and web hosting which can be done separately or together. They’re all about the same but we do want to be very clear that you want to purchase a domain name and web hosting in order to use WordPress. That is the only component of this that is not free.

Therefore, the cost of creating a WordPress website include the followings:

[list style=”orb” color=”black”]

  • Own a domain name: A domain like myfirstshop.com.hk costs around $250/year
  • Own hosting: Costs around $500/year
  • Time: WordPress can take time. You want to make sure you have your website the way you envisioned it.

[/list]

What are these plugins and do I have to pay to use them?

WordPress offers over 10,000 free plugins. Plugins are tools that essentially enhance the functionality of WordPress. There’s a plugin for almost every need, just google it or search http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins.

Some of the most popular plugins include the All in One SEO Pack which essentially automatically optimizes your WordPress blog for search engines, Facebook Like Widget where you can add the Facebook “Like” button plugin, as well as the Optimizer plugin that lets you optimize your landing pages (as posts or pages) using the Google Website Optimizer.

Technology is always changing. How do I know if my site needs to be updated?

WordPress is awesome with keeping you updated. Anything that needs to be updated (plugins, features, etc) will provide you with a notification. Simply click on “Plugins” on the left side pane and press “upgrades available”.

p

Can I change my website’s theme or colors?

Did you design your whole website with a theme or colors that you thought would look awesome and turned out kind of “blah?” No worries, WordPress let you change your layout at any time with the click of the mouse. There are over 17,000 free themes for you to choose from!

So, what will I be able to change on my WordPress site?

The great thing about WordPress is that it’s user-friendly. You can change themes, colors, page names, content, etc. at any time with a simple click of the mouse.

Is WordPress suitable for my business?

WordPress works for any business-small or large. If you are just starting out, great. If you have established visitors to your website, that’s wonderful too! WordPress features large sites like the University of South Florida to a small, cooking diary blog started out for fun by a housewife.

To see the great variety of websites that WordPress has helped launch, see the showcase of websites.

Can I do e-commerce on my WordPress site? Can I accept payments?

There are various free e-commerce plug-ins for WordPress. Even if you decide to pay, most of them are under $400. Just do a simple search for e-commerce plug-ins and you’ll find plenty!

You can accept payments, but it all depends on the plug-in you use. The type of e-commerce plug-in you use will depend on your business and it’s e-commerce capabilities and goals. WP e-commerce for example, lets you accept checks, money order, PayPal, Google Checkout and Chronopay.

I am going to have to give some of my generated profit to WordPress, right?

No way! Any traffic and attention that your website gets, it’s all yours! You own your website. Let’s say your website is really doing well and you are getting more clients than ever, that profit goes directly to you!  The only thing you have to pay attention to, is some payment acceptance system require monthly service fee, just like some small stores may require you to pay a little bit more while you choose to pay with your credit cards.  You can account this as a rental of credit card payment acceptance machine service with sound security.  The highest Paypal account fee is Cross-Border Payment 3.9%, for details, please refer to Paypal Account Fee Detail.

Give yourself a pat on the back and don’t worry about having to give WordPress any percentage of that new money earned!

Can I integrate social media into my WordPress site?

Please do so as integrating social media into everything you do is uber important! There are many plug-ins for that you download and it automatically embeds sharing links on your pages. You ever go to a business web page and see that you can “like” them or “follow” them? Welcome to social media!

You can integrate Facebook dynamics onto your WordPress website, display latest tweets in the sidebar as well as add sharing buttons for various social media services to your pages, posts and homepage.

There’re some Social Media plugins which is a simple sidebar that allows users to put their social media website such as Facebook fanpage to show on your site.  The “Like Form.Welkin” widget on the right of formwelkin.com is a good example!

Make your WordPress site your social media hub!
