More than once you’ve heard the phrase that creating a website in WordPress is very easy. Let’s not fool ourselves: creating a simple website is easy, but if you want some advanced stuff, it isn’t. If you also add plugins without knowing very well what you are doing, your website may be in a state in which you no longer know where you are.
Even hiring expert designers to create your website (by the way, it will surely be one of your best investments), the more knowledge you have of WordPress, the easier it will be for you to see all the possibilities you have, make your own changes, and make sure you really have the website you want. The more dynamic and updated your website is, the better it will be positioned in Google searches.
And if you do not have a great flexibility of time or your budget is limited, you are very lucky that you have many free resources to learn WordPress. You no longer have any excuse not to know about the subject.
