Which Content Management System (CMS) is best for your business?

In this article, we will explore the best CMS for different types of websites.

Shopify: Best for eCommerce

Shopify is the best choice for businesses that focus on online selling. The platform comes complete with all the eCommerce essentials to make order management easy;

  • Inventory tracking
  • Built-in shopping cart and checkout pages
  • A secure payment gateway and payment processing
  • Simple shipping set-up

Its customisable templates and drag-and-drop editor make it easy to manage your website content. Additionally, Shopify’s App Store has over 6,000 add-ons to extend the platform’s capabilities. So whether you’re a small to medium sized business, or selling on a global scale, Shopify’s scalability ensures the platform can grow with your business.

WordPress: Best for non-eCommerce

WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world powering 43% of all websites on the internet.

One of the biggest benefits if a WordPress CMS is versatility. A highly customisable platform, WordPress can be used to create anything from a simple blog to a bespoke membership site. Its intuitive interface and visual editor make content management easy and straightforward, and with thousands of add-ons and integrations, it is easy to extend functionality to meet your growing business’ needs.

Finally, WordPress is a very secure CMS. The platform is regularly updated to address any security vulnerabilities. There are also many security extensions available to further enhance the security of a WordPress website and protect your valuable data from being compromised.

Squarespace and WIX: For Beginners

Squarespace and WIX are popular website builders that allow users to create websites without any coding experience. While these platforms are suitable for very basic websites, they lack the scalability and flexibility required for businesses that want to grow and expand their online presence. Squarespace and WIX have limited customisation options and businesses will have to migrate their website to another platform as their business scales.
