CMS Solutions for Charities, Non – Profits and NGOs

September 24 2013

Choosing the right CMS platform for your website is one of the most crucial factors when it comes to the success of your website. There are many CMS Solutions that you can choose from such as; Joomla, WordPress, Magento or Drupal, so making the right decision from the beginning can prove challenging. A lot of web companies will not offer these CMS platforms, preferring to use their own customised CMS. Herein lies a big issue for organisations who are unclear about the dangers associated with using these in house, proprietary build CMS systems.

Following are some tips for choosing the best CMS Solution for your Charity, NFP or NGO.

Make sure that you can get training in usage of the CMS once the website project has been completed. This is a no brainer and should be given to you no matter they type of CMS you use.

Ask your web developer EXACTLY what type of CMS solution they will be providing – if it is not one of the above mentioned then you need to be extremely careful about progressing with them.

Make sure there are no licence fees associated with custom built CMS platforms as this can get very costly over the years.

Avoid getting locked into contracts as this means that you are stuck with 1 company for the entire life of the website – not ideal in this day and age.
