Drupal: Friend or Foe?
For the small business owner who is venturing to build a website for the first time, Drupal might seem out of reach and more than a little daunting. Take it from a Drupal web development company: the learning curve on Drupal sites is much steeper than that of some of its competitors. The ability that the admins have to manipulate and add features, though, makes it worthwhile.
Drupal sites allow for much more control than many other open source CMS so if you are expecting a lot of traffic to your site, if you want a lot of customization, or if your site is large; you should definitely consider building it on Drupal. Drupal is powerful. Just think, WhiteHouse.Gov is built on Drupal. But even if you have a small site, you might still want to consider Drupal as an option.
Drupal modules allow you to extend and customize your site in a way not always available with other content management systems. If you have a very specific web design project in mind, Drupal modules can help you build it the exact way that you want. If you are looking for a CMS that is easy to understand from the very beginning, you might want to consider a different option. In the end, though, Drupal is definitely your friend. Although intimidating at first, with the proper training, we can help you build a perfect site.
