A guide to CMS platforms
Content Management Systems (CMS) are constantly evolving in order to meet the needs of businesses and marketers. Content is key to bringing visitors to your site, but good content also needs to be managed in order to keep it engaging. There are hundreds of programmes on the market, and it can be difficult to choose which one is right for your business and the content you produce. Whether it’s an OpenSource platform where the programme code is freely accessible and can be adapted to your needs, or proprietary software that is developed by an experienced company and not available to users – you need to ask yourself what requirements you need and what is of the utmost importance to you and your business.
To help you on your way to choosing the right CMS platform, we have put together a mini guide on three of the most popular Content Management Systems.
WordPress is the most popular and cost-effective CMS out there. With nearly 18 million websites worldwide using the OpenSource CMS platform, WordPress can take you from a simple blogging tool to full content management through the many upgrades available.
With 2.5 million installations worldwide, Joomla! is a popular choice when it comes to managing content. Though it has easy installation methods, some expertise is required for manual implementations and is, therefore, best used through a hosting provider.
TYPO3 is an enterprise management system, meaning it can be more advanced than the other CMS platforms, with expert knowledge required to get the most out of the system.
