5 Reasons Why You Should Evolve From WP to Joomla

From WP to Joomla
If you have set up a blog, intranet, or Internet website then no doubt you have had to contend with the question of which solution to use for your Content Management System (CMS) requirements. Your initial research may have resulted in your selecting WordPress (WP) as your CMS system of choice, however given the added benefits of Joomla, it is worth reassessing your initial decision and taking the additional effort to migrate to Joomla as the benefits of this platform are significant.
 

Common Benefits

Both WP and Joomla are free, open source CMS solutions that continually evolve to meet current market trends and ensure that any bugs or security compromises are quickly dealt with. Both solutions have active, supportive communities and are SEO friendly; and both solutions are easy to work with and have site-bridging options.

Website is ground zero

Create Provocative, Amusing & Engaging Content (part I)

You can use your Blog to create a more successful website

Last week we published the article titled “Content is Certainly NOT King”, making the point that in today’s world the “king” would be the platform to put your content out there - - e.g. social networks, email campaigns, mobile marketing among others. So, unless you have a platform geared towards presenting your content for others to talk about, it will be very hard to have a competitive edge.

However, the old axiom: “Content is King” is still valid, and always will be. Why? Simply put, if your content is not worthy, followers won’t talk about it. You need to have BOTH, great content on your website AND a solid platform.

5 Things Every Joomla Website Owner Should Know

child_bullhornEvery month it seems I end up in a conversation with a new friend or acquaintance that has a website built on Joomla, and when they find out that I train people how to use Joomla, I invariably find myself telling them a handful of things that I feel are essential things to get in order if you have a Joomla powered site.

The list of things I mention is most often the same, so I thought I’d share it in hopes that it might help you with your own Joomla powered site.

Without a doubt, the first thing I suggest to people is to get their site moved to a webhost that is known to work well with Joomla and that has taken great steps in creating a secure server environment.

My top choice, and the host I always recommend, is Rochen. I’ve been using them for years, we host the Joomlashack sites there, the main Joomla websites are hosted there, and I’ve never had any major problems with any sites hosted at Rochen.
