Small business owners – regardless of whether you are going to set up a website yourself or outsource to third party web developers, you need to be sure about the CMS (content management system) to use. This article will explain a bit on why Joomla CMS is the one you should consider to build a small business website.

When you or your team build a small business website that is more than just company profile, you need to think about the possible integration with other software or plugins to extend the capability of your site.

For instance, when you develop a small business website that can help you capture and manage leads for your business, you need a CMS that can easily integrate powerful software into your website.

How Joomla rocks

When you are going to set up an online store, you need an extension or plugin that can “extend” the capability of your basic installation of CMS. With Joomla, all you need to install is VirtueMart – and start setting up a professional online shop with full order management capability.

Let’s take another example. Suppose you want to build a small business website that will capture leads and manage them – in other words, doing
CRM or customer relationship management – you will need an extension to help you with CRM, such as the powerful vTiger CRM. All you need is a plugin that can seamlessly connect your website with the CRM software; with Joomla, this is easily done by using CRMVJ Joomla extension.

Joomla and web hosting

To support those powerful features of Joomla, you need a Joomla Hosting. Joomla Hosting is actually similar to a “general” web hosting, except the fact that the web servers are configured and optimized for Joomla (yes, choosing the wrong web hosting provider CAN make your website setup a nightmare.) So, you need to be careful to choose your hosting provider. And for me it is more important to pay more to get best service than pay less but you get very inconvenience service.


Joomla offer unlimited possibilities for small business owners; whether you are going to establish an online business, a lead capturing business, or an extension of your corporate website from which you do CRM, the CMS can help you start your small business website on the right foot.

To add, Joomla has a great global community you can always turn for help and advice, as well as accessing new capabilities for your Joomla-powered websites – mostly available for free – developed by Joomla user, for Joomla user. How’s that for a CMS that is open source and free to use?
