Which CMS for Small Business

This gets asked a lot in forums and networking sites. This depends on a couple of factors
  • Are you looking for a free license or usage
  • Are you happy to pay for a proprietary CMS
If you want CMS that is free there is a huge choice
  • Joomla
  • Drupal
  • WordPress
  • Plone
  • dotnet
  • Jaws… I can go on and on
there are hundreds available. Some are specific for some niches like dating or news. For a small business that needs a few pages with basic functions many CMS’s are an overkill. What I find again and again only a few relevant issues need to be addressed
  1. Ease of use
  2. Shopping cart to be added at a later stage
  3. Google friendly
  4. Support in case of problems
  5. Inserting images
Considering all of the above WordPress wins as a CMS for the small mom & pop business. It is
  • Very easy to use. (dashboard very similar to Word)
  • Inserting pictures is a piece of cake
  • Very Google friendly ( due to pinging facility)
  • Numerous bells & whistles (add on to enhance the site)
  • Huge developer community & forum for support
  • One click install
  • Thousands of themes available
