53: Picking The Right CMS
Choosing the right CMS (Content Management System) is a pretty easy choice. WordPress powers a majority of the internet. In this episode we talk about why WordPress is right for your project, regardless of your website needs.
In this episode, our only concern is that you pick the right content management system. Welcome to the Divi Addicts podcast, a podcast by Keegan Lanier Media where our goal is to build a community of education hungry entrepreneurs who want to learn and talk about the Divi theme and WordPress.
So before we jump into today’s episode, we have a quick quick message from one of our sponsors. Alright ladies and gentlemen, we’re here episode number two, season three of the Divi addicts podcast.
And we’re going to try and guide you in the right direction to pick the right CMS content management system. If you have a blog, if you have a website, you more than likely have that blog or website on WordPress, it is without a doubt the number one CMS in the world stats back it up. But it’s also our pick. For the number one CMS and the one that’s right for you. Mainly because of its flexibility. No matter what you do, you’re going to be able to utilize this thing. If it’s built on WordPress, you can have a great website with a lot of features, from e commerce to membership sites to just plain brochure sites, or full on blogs.
The flexibility is is really unmatched. If you go with something like a Wix or a Squarespace. They’re very closed ecosystems, they’re very, very limited in what you can do. They’ve got great features. And some cases those are right for people. But if you want to have the option, you want to be able to grow and you don’t wanna have to pay someone to transfer from one CMS to the other. Everything that you would want to possibly be able to be able to do in a web site would be possible. On top of WordPress, almost everything.
Most things that you wouldn’t be able to do were going to be some very specialized situations that you would probably never get into anyway, not at least us average folks. So the reason that I think WordPress is the best is because it is secure. It is fast, it is flexible. And it allows you to do all kinds of things. You can run full on blogs, you can integrate Google statistics, or Google Analytics for the site’s statistics. You can do anything.
And the numbers wouldn’t be what they are, if this thing wasn’t the number one CMS out there for over 30% of the web is made on WordPress. So they’re doing so many great things. To really amp up what WordPress is. They’re, you know, redefining WordPress as a whole. They’ve recently as of late last year 2018. Release Gutenberg. And Gutenberg is a reimagining of the back end. From the blogging standpoint inside of WordPress, it really started the future proof, the back end of WordPress. Now I’m really looking forward to see what the next releases of WordPress are going to bring, you know, 6.0 and where things are going to go because they’re going to continue to evolve, continue to get better continue to get easier for the end user.
And that’s a beautiful thing for all of us. So if you’re picking a CMS for your new website or your new blog, our recommendation without a doubt is WordPress. So we’re really, really interested in finding out what you think what you’ve used and what your experiences were, if you’re on WordPress, but also, if you’re not on WordPress, and how that went.
