We can customize the BuddyPress platform to conform to your specifications, which results in a dead-simple social networking site, which you can run by yourself, and will give you more than the functionality you need. We also give you a full training as a part of the package.
Why would you need a Social Networking site?
Are you a part of a college or university, or other type of school? Using BuddyPress, the students can interact, communicate, collaborate on mutual projects and get to know each other overall. You can also create, manage and use blogs to serve as an inspiration for the students, which should be more than enough to give them a learning environment they can have fun in, and consequently their results will be better.
Are you a business-oriented organization? BuddyPress gives your employees and staff the chance to collaborate on various projects, as well as interact socially, which will eventually get them closer to each other, and give them an incentive to stay in your organization.
Do you have a customer-targeted website? When you engage directly with your customers, and encourage them to give feedback on the services and products you offer, you save yourself a fortune you’d ordinarily spend on market research. Constant communication with the customers also lets them know that you value their opinions and take them into consideration, and you get a much higher customer satisfaction in return.
Are you by any chance working on a project, such as a short movie or maybe a book? By using a social networking site, you can engage with anyone who would be interested in your project, and get valuable feedback that would improve the overall quality of the project.
What exactly is BuddyPress?
Simply put, it’s a WordPress plug-in. BuddyPress is added on WordPress-based websites, and it opens up the doors to social networking on the site itself. It creates a social network on your website, and you can customize it to the needs of the community you’re working with, whether it’s an educational facility, a business organization or maybe just a website for people who share certain interests can gather and exchange their opinions, as well as get to know each other.
Do I really need BuddyPress?
If you have a community that you would want to interact with each other and give them the opportunity to exchange opinions, work together on projects, and you want all that to happen on your website, yes, you need BuddyPress. Everyone on your website will get an opportunity to meet together, discuss various topics, build relationships and collaborate on projects. All of that happens with privacy in mind, because only registered users can participate in the social networking, and you have complete control over who has access to each and every area on your website.
What this does is it builds a place where the members of your organization can communicate, which in turn gets them closer and allows them to increase their mutual social interactions. You also have the ability to update everyone at the same time if you have news. Complete control over the employer and staff blogs on your site? Yep, you’ve got it. If you’re an educational facility, you can use this as a place where students collaborate online, and you can also manage the blogs lead by the students, as well as the teachers. All things considered, you get virtually limitless communication possibilities.
