CMS with extensive levels of functionality
Joomla is not only an easy to use CMS (Content Management System) but also a stand alone development platform.
Joomla bridges the gap between more straightforward CMS’s like WordPress, and powerful, technical, frameworks like Django and Ruby on Rails and is our go to platform for sites that require more power and functionality.
Please note that due to the demand for WordPress sites we can only manage a small number of Joomla websites at any given time. Want to know more? Drop us a line today.
Joomla vs WordPress – They both serve purpose
Because every business is different we use a range of CMS platforms to suit. Joomla is the power and brains behind the websites of some of the world’s most loved brands. Pizza Hut and Sony Pictures, Jaguar and MTV all look to the Joomla platform to deliver their sites.
With this in mind we use Joomla for websites that require more power and security. What Joomla lacks in intuitive backend usability it makes up for by being incredibly stable and secure.
Choosing the right Content Management System (CMS) for your business is incredibly important. There are many platforms on offer and each one has its pros and cons. Of all those available it’s clear there are two that stand out: WordPress and Joomla.
At Start Digital we meet with our clients to determine the project requirements. This allows us to propose the most appropriate platform and way forward. In recent years, we’ve seen a significant swing towards WordPress being the dominant CMS, however there is still a place for Joomla and it still forms the backbone of many Perth and Australian online businesses.
Some of the biggest companies use Joomla for a reason
Where WordPress is the better choice for a simple, informative website, Joomla is an incredibly powerful platform that excels with e-commerce, social networking, directories and forums – and so much more!
Joomla has the capacity to evolve with a businesses strategy. A website built with Joomla can grow into a complicated, intricate website where even the smallest of details can be easily changed.
Of course, Joomla websites still benefit from all the other Start Digital services such as photoshop based graphic design, awesome ranking results through our search engine optimisation strategies and increased followers through social media plans.
