4 Advantages of a Joomla CMS for your Website.
1) The obvious advantage is that it is open source. This way you are not locked into or tied up with another web companies purpose built CMS platform. What this really means for your business is that you never have to pay monthly fees for the intellectual property of their CMS – many web companies will slug you a hefty monthly fee for the CMS and tell you all kinds of stories about security, SEO updates, what ever they like just to keep n hitting you with this fee. Joomla negates this rip off and allows you the freedom to take your website anywhere, without the fear of loosing your website. Watch out for companies that try to flog their own CMS platforms – at the end of the day they are really not worth the money or the aggravation. We get so many phonme calls from businesses that have or are trapped into using a CMS that they really don't like.
2) Joomla will automatically provide your website with security patches and SEO plug –ins so you are always up to date with the latest technologies – these are done automatically so you never have to worry about site hackings or being disadvantaged with your SEO. I would however, suggest that you talk to use about a SEO campaign and a search engine startegy once your website has been launched.
3) If you are hosting on 1 server with Joomla and you want to transfer it to another hosting company, this is very easy to do. With Joomla you are not stuck with 1 hosting provider. If your hosting platform is not working properly, or you are disappointed with the performance, then its super easy to migrate.
4) Some people may think that Joomla platforms can limit design – this is far from the truth – our CMS sites are all very visual, original and custom made. In no way does Joomla affect design, in fact, it enhances our abilities and gives us more license to be creative.
