Choosing a CMS for your website is an important, yet sometimes difficult decision to make. You want your website to align with your business goals, while creating an engaging, visually appealing, and user-friendly website.
While there are a lot of content management systems to choose from, Marcel Digital typically recommends the Umbraco CMS due to its user-friendliness, customization possibilities, and scalability to meet business needs. It is also Microsoft’s #1 .NET open source CMS platform, so there are no ongoing license fees and can be managed by any .NET developer or development team. Follow along as we go through why we love Umbraco CMS - and why you should too.
1. Ease of Use
There is a reason why Umbraco’s tagline is “The Friendly CMS”. Umbraco was built specifically with the purpose of making it easy to update your website. Many content management systems can be clunky and difficult to navigate. Umbraco, however, is centered around creating an incredible user experience, both on the front-end and the back-end, ensuring both editors and users enjoy seamless website experiences.
Umbraco provides many features for editors to make updates on the website:
Content block editor. Easily update individual content blocks on a page and rearrange them as needed. The drag and drop functionality allows users to pull in necessary content blocks without the need for a developer.
