Starting a Business? You Need a Website and a Simple CMS

If your business ¬†doesn’t have a website these days it feels almost like it doesn’t exist. Of course there are businesses which do not need a website. Plumbers come to mind. ¬†But think about it for a minute. Everyone researches new business relationships or new vendors online. So if there isn’t any information there, you might not get that business. At the very least a brochure-like site which describes your business and what you do is necessary. Most of us don’t have the html chops to design our own site. And managing content without a clean interface, which makes sense to a layman, is almost impossible otherwise.

So a big thank you to Mashable.com for creating a great list of Content Management Systems (CMS) that we can understand and use.

Read detailed explanations at Mashable.com. WordPress is the most popular CMS on the market today, but it might be overkill for you, according to Mashable. Personally, I love WordPress and never have any problem using it to do everything I want to do.

    I too am a big fan of WordPress. I have created a lot of WordPress based sites for churches and a helped a couple of small businesses get up and running with WordPress. These days, there are so many excellent templates available with such good documentation that any small business can get a professional site up and running with very little out of pocket expense. There are a number of self help article series, like this one http://moonlightdevelopments.com/2010/03/get-a-website-up-and-running-in-x-easy-steps to help.
