    WordCamp Kochi (കൊച്ചി) 2018Speaker: Renjini Narendranath

    November 24, 2020 — WordPress gives tremendous power for women entrepreneurs who want
    to start a business online. Selling through social media was the trend among
    women for a while now. That trend is shifting rapidly to a website centric
    approach with e-commerce platforms. More and more women are aware of today that building a website and updating content is easier than ever with WordPress.
    The user can update the content themselves and do not have to call in the web developer – this is an attractive option for every business owner who at the core is a DIY-person. Women are natural storytellers. And we know that stories make great brands. Logically coherent, intensive, and innovative stories can be written by women who are the owners of the business. These stories can then be utilized as blogs for SEO and social media sharing. WordPress can be used as an excellent platform for rigorous and iterative content creation and revision until the satisfied result is achieved.
