Is it too much or an overkill to use a content management system for my 2 to 5 page website?

This is the question that causes delays for some website owners and there is one answer. Yes! It is recommended to use a popular content management system for your website, regardless of page count.

The fact is you never know where your website will take your business overtime, and with a CMS, you have the ability to grow without redeveloping, and the addage applies:

Chance favors the prepared

Content management systems such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal are used by billions of websites combined, and are constantly maintained by skilled opensource web programming communities. Those applications are very extendable and that makes them very flexible so an owner can plug in any function as needed.

The scenario

You run a restaurant and at the moment you merely wish to show a menu, virtual tour with photos of the interior, directions to the store and a contact form. You could do this with any WYSIWYG application such as Adobe Dreamweaver or even one of those non recommended free services like WIX or iPage. Bam! Your website is done in the day and life goes on as normal.

Within a few months you are receiving calls and emails asking for an option to order meals online. Now you need to implement a dynamic shopping cart system. You could install a cart application, as many are available but then you now have an entirely separate area to manage and the display most likely will be different from your four static pages. That does not bode well for your professional appeal.

Secondly your customers wish to compliment you on the great food you provide and the most excellent service in town. You now need a special form to collect these sentiments and then manually publish to your website for public viewing. Again you could install a software just for that purpose but again you extend the management areas to which to login. Confusion erupts.

With a good and very dependable content manager as WordPress, Joomla or Drupal you will have all the functions already available and can be enabled with a simple click.

With the need to incur page depth for search engine validation, your content management system will support page addition on the fly from anywhere via any device. You can establish a food blog and keep your customers well informed, enlightened and longing for your latest treats.

So go ahead and start your super small website with a content management system and be ready for growth.
