I really just want a web presence showing what our business does and can do. It must have a contact form... Oh, and placed on the first page of Google!
Joomla is a highly advanced and versatile content management system (CMS). What does this mean in layman's terms? Simply, it's the shell of a website and you add in the content. In your case the content is your business information. This platform is perfect if your website will contain a large amount of content and menus that you would like to edit and maintain yourself without paying a designer for updating fees. If you want to have full control of your site and cut down you ongoing updating cost, then this system is the best for you!
Q: What does CMS mean?
A: Content Management System.
Q: I'm familiar with Wordpress, can you build a Wordpress site?
A: Yes, they are both different versions of a CMS. We prefer Joomla simply because it is a more advanced versatile system.
REMEMBER! You can always add advanced functionality to any Joomla site as your business grows.
