Pretoria, Gauteng (PRWEB) April 9, 2007
The RapidNicheWebsites.com web site has undergone a much-needed update. It now demonstrates the significant enhancements made to the product over the past year. It also confirms that Rapid Niche Websites System has kept pace with the recent WordPress updates.
"The Rapid Niche Websites System has evolved considerably over the past 18 months. It is fully WordPress 2.1 compliant - which is the latest version of WordPress. It also supports building silo(authority)-style sites", says Jeff Walters, the developer and owner of the Rapid Niche Websites System.
WordPress has deservedly enjoyed huge popularity over the past year. Its easy installation has enabled people with limited technical skill to set up thousands of sites over the past year. The basic blog format does, however, have some shortcomings - particularly if you want your site to look like a conventional site. Savvy site builders have been building conventional sites with the blog framework for a while, but this requires good technical skills.
The Rapid Niche Websites System removes this technical barrier. It provides a point-and-click interface to quickly transform a WordPress blog into a marketing site. Hundreds of marketers with minimal technical skill are already using this system to create attractive web sites.
Why does the company's ongoing commitment to WordPress make good business sense?
More and more web site builders are creating interactive websites. This is basically a shift to Web 2.0 styles sites. These interactive sites allow commentary and hence visitor interaction. This important feature allows marketers to build relationships with their customers.
Fast, interactive sites are a far cry from the days of technical developers acting as bottlenecks to creating and maintaining sites. Not only was this a slow process, it was also expensive and frustrating. "The days of slow, difficult and expensive web site development are over!" says Jeff Walters. "In fact, I think the days of static HTML sites are also numbered. They're just so limited in terms of what they can do compared to ones based on a content management system - such as WordPress"
While the Rapid Niche Websites System originally focused on Adsense content publishing for Internet Marketers, the ever-increasing number of plug-ins that extend WordPress's functionality now means that WordPress is a serious contender for creating business websites - at a fraction of the cost of conventional sites. A key feature of WordPress - assisted by the Rapid Niche Websites System - is that attractive, powerful marketing websites can be set up within a few hours to a couple of days.
The WordPress development team has been updating WordPress every few months. This has ensured the ongoing and increasing popularity of WordPress. This isn't without some drawbacks, as some plug-in developers don't bother keeping up to date with WordPress enhancements. This leaves many users of their plug-ins stranded with each WordPress upgrade.
Rapid Niche Websites customers can, however, be assured that their sites won't be impacted by these updates. "We certainly intend to keep updating and enhancing our product. Our goal is to continue to evolve the Rapid Niche Websites System as a fast, flexible, and very powerful web marketing platform" says Jeff Walters.
