Joomla is a content management system that gives you the ability to manage a website and it’s content with little experience.
Although it is more complex when it comes to the initial set-up, Joomla offers some great versatility and ease of use.
Similar to WordPress, Joomla has templates that can be purchased or downloaded for free to style the site and then add personal touches to it.
Ideal scenarios where Joomla site come in handy are:
- Website for Local Businesses
- Large Brand Based Websites
- Membership or Community Websites
If you are just getting started in the world of online marketing, I actually suggest you go with WordPress instead of Joomla because it is much easier from the perspective of a beginner.
Beyond that, Joomla is my personal choice for building large scale websites (like this one) and sites for local clients.
