Seriously, you’ll find loads of articles.
I’ve read an awful lot of them.
A few of them are even unbiased.
If you’re looking to create a personal or hobby website, use Squarespace.
Or maybe you've started tutoring part-time in the evenings and want a quick website to point people towards?
Still use Squarespace.
If you want anything more than that, then you’re probably going to need a developer to help design, configure, optimise and launch your website.
And if you need a developer, choose one that specialises in Umbraco CMS web design, rather than WordPress.
You don't have to read any further.
You might like this comparison of Umbraco and other CMSs though.
And you can see highlights of our portfolio here.
OK, so you might be tempted to go the WordPress route – lots of people do – it is a well-known blogging platform after all.
Maybe you’re under the impression it’ll be free or cheap, easy to use, bla bla bla.
It might be, but then again, it might not.
Instead, choose a proper CMS that’s flexible, scalable, secure, easy-to-use and trusted by the likes of Amnesty International, Heinz, Carlsberg and Microsoft.
It’s better than choosing a blogging platform that’s been shoe-horned and hammered over time into some kind of CMS, i.e. WordPress.
Don’t get me wrong, I read somewhere that 30% of websites are created using WordPress.
So, some people must like it.
Bully for them.
Maybe they don’t know any different.
I find it clunky, messy to use and whatever the opposite of intuitive is.
And it certainly isn’t ‘free’ either.
Far from it.
So, there we are.
Even if you’re on a small budget, we have an Umbraco templated option that we can brand/theme, just for you.
And you can use us for Umbraco hosting too – we have secure servers in London Telehouse, Docklands.
Or, just tell us about your project, it's up to you.
Give us a call on 01844 888 777 or email [email protected] for a chat.
P.S OK, so you probably want some more evidence to back up this ‘Umbraco is a better choice than WordPress’-type argument, right?
Well, here’s a link to Exhibit A - a whole bunch of benefits of using Umbraco as your CMS.
And here are a few other vital bits of evidence, m’lud.
In no particular order…
P.P.S Remember, if you’re on a small budget we have an Umbraco templated option that we can brand/theme just for you.
P.P.P.S. And if you need something more bespoke, we can do that too, of course!
