Ten Reasons Why
Especially for Small Businesses
Why do we love the Joomla content management system, especially for Milwaukee small business websites? Here are 10 reasons.
1. Joomla Is Free
That's because it's open-source Internet software, continually improved by a worldwide community of public-spirited software engineers. Being free to us, there's no charge to you, radically lowering the cost of website development.
2. Joomla Is Trouble-Free
Maybe you've had a bad experience with a custom content management system that was installed on top of a custom website. That won't happen with Joomla. It's the most highly developed, least buggy website construction platform on the market.
3. Joomla Is Fast
The architecture of the system is remarkably intuitive. That means the developer can install the site chassis remarkably quickly. Along with whatever extra technology you want. Saving you money.
4. Joomla Is Supremely User-Friendly
Joomla websites can be readily managed by people with modest computer skills. You don't have to be a programmer. We prefer to hand over the keys and help you stand up and walk on your own.
5. Joomla Is Customizable
Your Joomla site can have a unique, one-of-a-kind look and feel. However, we recommend against "getting funky," unless you want your brand to be associated with funkiness. We like to use best practices in integrated branding whenever we build a new site.
6. Joomla Is Highly Extendable
Say you want to add a capability. E-commerce, for example. Simply select the software online, download it, upload it to the website, configure it to suit your needs and tastes . . . Done.
7. Joomla's Get-Found Totally Rocks
The core, out-of-the-box Joomla package contains sophisticated features to help you get found in Google and the other major search engines. You will already have a head start on SEO - search engine optimization. Then, easily add technology to take SEO through the roof. It is how you came to see the search engine link which clicked through to this page on our website.
8. Joomla Enables Unlimited Users
Say you want to assign management of different pages and different functions to different people. For example, you want to Sue to manage a team blog, and you want Tom, Dick and Sally to be able to write posts. OK. Maybe you want Claire to run the online store. Fine. Joomla might be free, but don't make the mistake of thinking it's a toy. This is incredibly powerful stuff.
9. Joomla Embraces E-Marketing
We can free you from Constant Contact with a better tool that's built right into your website and which you own forever.
10. Joomla Has Amazing Support
The Joomla Project maintains an encyclopedic website with an active user's forum. Through blogs and other Internet forums, it's easy to ramp up your know-how online. You will encounter a large community of people dedicated to supporting each other.
There are other options in an open-source content management system for building new websites. But Joomla is the one that's been around longest and is the most maturely developed. You are on a Joomla website right now. So, what do think?
