    When you're designing a website for a small business. Do you build your website about a CMS?

    Would Wordpress be a good CMS to build the website around?

    I'm planning to build a website for my brother's company and I will also try to rank him for some local keywords.

    I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts.

    Yes, Wordpress is good if you wish to make the changes yourself. In this case it does not matter whether the site is small or large.

    Stick with a CMS. For a small business, you can't go wrong with Wordpress.

    Loads of plugins, loads of themes, loads of documentation.

    you can definitely go with CMS. with the hep of CMS you can easily edit the content and images of your website at any time and also add unlimited number of pages with yourself at no extra cost.

    consider with no CMS only if you won't plan to do many changes.
