Perform research (e.g. an Internet search) to find the content management system for building websites that you feel offers the best product today for a small business (you get to pick the criteria for your evaluation – but consider only those features that you feel might be most important for a typical small business. If it helps, think of yourself as the owner of a particular business, and that you want to create a website for the business.). Make sure it is a CMS for building business websites, as there are CMSes for other purposes as well. Some examples of CMSes for building websites include Wordpress, Wix, Weebly, Joomla, Drupal, Composr, Squarespace, and Webs. Consider at least five features/items in your criteria for selection. Secondary research is fine; however, you can do your own evaluation if you prefer. Be careful if using review websites to select your candidate, as some sites are actually just paid listings with fake ratings rather than true reviews. It’s best to look for a preponderance of evidence from multiple reliable sources to support your selection.
2. Enter the “CMS Comparison Lab” forum, found under the same topic as these instructions, add a discussion topic using the name of your top CMS and proceed to post the following (copy this outline for your post):
a. My top CMS for building a small business website:
b. CMSes that I compared my top choice to (minimum of three):
c. Why this is my top choice (consider at least five features/items in your analysis, and be sure to compare/contrast your top choice with the other CMSes that you researched. A comparison matrix is fine, however be sure to also include a detailed summary discussion explaining your findings.):
d. Assumptions (e.g. are there particular types of businesses that this CMS would be best for? Is your recommendation conditional on anything?):
