The advantage of converting from Joomla to WordPress
Similar to WordPress, Joomla is a CMS that is commonly used for building websites. The problem clients often have with Joomla is that it can be hard to understand and edit for people who don’t have a development background. WordPress not only offers a robust CMS, but also one that is extremely easy for non-techie people to navigate. Plus, all our clients get a free one-hour training session with their site, which is usually all they need to confidently edit their own site.
There are, generally, two different types of clients who come to us for a Joomla to WordPress conversion. One group likes the look and messaging of their current site and simply wants more control over the back end and their ability to update the site on their own. For these clients, we simply recreate the look of their current site within WordPress and transfer the content over. For users, it’s seamless. The front end of the website looks exactly the same. But, for the client, the backend offers a more flexible format.
The other type of client we work with on Joomla to WordPress conversions are those who choose to update the CMS to WordPress while they are updating the rest of the site. We work with these clients to create a custom site around their needs, making sure the transition from their old site to the new one is as seamless as possible.
