Link it up! Open Source Edition

As we work to get our website 2.o‘ed, we are in the process of determining what Open Source Content Management System (CMS) to use. We want a CMS that will interface with our SalesNet Customer Relationship Manager (CRM). We may be willing to move over to a Sales Force CRM if necessary. Also, we want to be able to have all of our calls-to-action that are based on Seth‘s Permission Marketing to easily transfer into our CRM lead files. As well, we want to be known as the most user-friendly experience of any 1031 Exchange website. We want people that find us to stay because of the great experience they’re having. Yes, I recognize a lot of that has to do with quality content. But, if the eye doesn’t like what it sees, it won’t stay long (as you all know very well). So, those are our basic desires from the CMS.

So, do we stay with WordPress or go with Typepad, Drupal, Joomla, etc.? Who do you use? Why do you like them? What back-end CRM are you using and how well do your CMS and CRM co-exist?

  1. WordPress, hands down. Two people to ask tech opinions from are Jay Thompson (@PhoenixREGuy) and Benn Rosales (@agentgenius) both on WP.

  2. Thanks Lani! I’ll be sure to contact them.

  4. I haven’t seen WordPress not do anything that I needed it to. I should think CRM integration will require some coding (or at least, some intelligent linking) no matter what platform you use.

  5. We love the way this article was written, in a expert way.

  6. I pay a visit every day some blogs and information sites to read articles or reviews, however this website gives
    quality based content.

  7. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website?
    My blog site is in the very same niche as yours and
    my users would definitely benefit from some of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this okay with you. Cheers!
