What is the best CMS for my startup's website?

It is open-source, use it for free!

Congratulations! Your startup is about to hit the web. However, how do you build the foundation for your online growth? It is easy. If you are not a seasoned coder, or if you are not yet ready to invest in hiring one, you can find easy-to-use content management systems that will make your business grow.

WordPress is the most popular choice, and for good reasons! You need to make sure you use the best CMS for your startup, by following a few fundamental concepts- it should be simple (having a website should not be on your daily tough-to-do list), customizable, user-friendly, cost-effective and functional.

Why is Wordpress the best?

WordPress is the world’s most widely used CMS. It is incredibly easy to handle, even for the beginner user, as you can launch your website and make changes to it without being a computer whizz.

Create a site with WordPress means you choose the software powering 28% of the internet.

You can add pages, posts, images, and products with just a few clicks. Not only do you eliminate the initial cost of paying a coder to design the website from scratch, which can significantly impact your startup’s budget, but you can also save lots of money in the long run, as you will not need an expert to make changes to your site. WordPress is intuitive and very user-friendly.

“Dress” to impress

Your website’s image is critical, so the first thing on your mind after setting it up should be- “How do we dress to impress”?

What could you do to make your website more attractive? The advantage of WordPress over other available content management systems is that thanks to its extensive usage it has the most significant number of developers who create themes and plugins for it.

It means you get a wide variety to choose from, turning your site from “just another WordPress site” to an online professional business card for your startup. Also, while there is a broad range of products to choose from, the main perk is that many handy ones are free. You can customise the menus as well, pick a theme, and you can even go for E-Commerce by using dedicated WordPress add-ons.

CMS popularity Award

Too often we see platforms that develop slowly, or which even cease to operate after a while. To the end user (that is, you and your startup) this would mean that the ability to make changes drastically reduces when there is no support system.

The fact that WordPress is so popular has many advantages which you can use to boost your business. It is frequently updated, meaning your database will always be top-notch, and any potential glitches are fixed in an instant, ever sooner than with other content management systems.

The fact that WordPress also offers the most plug-ins and themes than any other CMS means that whatever you wish to add to your website will most likely be found on their offer- and often for an excellent price, or even for no cost at all.

So if you are ready to set up a website, make a list of what it is that you wish to achieve with it, how you want to build it, how much you are willing to invest (and how you can reduce costs). You will find that WordPress will offer both functionality and design, both ease of use and sustainable technical support, all to help you brand your business and get a professional image.
