Choosing the right CMS is essential for maintaining a reliable website and ensuring the longevity of your brand. It doesn’t matter whether you are running a global e-commerce site or a small online retail business, you need a content management system that serves your needs and cultivates growth.

The most popular CMS is WordPress, which now powers a majority of the websites on the internet. Drupal is an older but still popular content management system in use by about 3% of the web. In our experience, WordPress is a better solution for the long term, with less technical debt and easier to maintain and use for marketing teams as they build their content marketing engine.

Although the two CMS platforms have many similarities, one reigns significantly over the other. If you are currently hosting your business website in Drupal, here are some great reasons to consider migrating to WordPress.

  • WordPress developers are generally cheaper to hire than Drupal developers (because there are a lot more WordPress developers)
