It is a super-effective tool for our marketing and content writing team. It is recommended to all the entrepreneurs out there to enhance their website traffic. The content can be easily managed via HubSpot CMS Hub and the marketing tools can be proved helpful in the dissemination of the content along with its SEO feature. However, it is less appropriate in the scenario for creating content for mobile as it has limited templates

[MODX is well suited for] all websites, from blogs to corporate sites. It is fast scalable and really good. A small site can be build really fast, and a large site can be made extremely scalable. A website redesign is easy to implement with a new template, without having to redo the content. It got great user groups and users and back-office access can be completely customized.
While ecommerce is possible with some really good plugins I would only use MODX with ecommerce for sites where ecommerce is not the primary role. For pure ecommerce sites rather use a dedicated system like e.g.
(i would say the same thing with other ecommerce plugins e.g. WP woo commerce don't do it unless its a site add on.)
Read full review Pros Training and provision of documents to enhance and grow success with their platform. Content scheduling! Content management and the easy way you can manipulate pre-built schedules and shift content around, etc. Read full review Ease of use - the MODX platform is very easy to use for someone who may have limited experience in content management. Content blocks - the content blocks within MODX add to the usability and customization of the website being managed. Read full review Cons Although you can integrate it with Google Analytics, there is still a significant difference between what each tells you about [a] number of visitors to a given page, etc. There's a lot to the program and it's not always intuitive where to go for a feature. Though the help center and academy are good and usually have the answers, having to look things up isn't. It's expensive. Read full review The user interface was confusing at times. Not a plug and play CMS system. The site manager doesn't always run fast. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
It is the CMS we use the most, not because we know it well but because we literally tried many of other CMS and this one did it for us.
However having said we really do not like the one shoe fits all approach. E..g for eCommerce we usually use
etc. if a specialized CMS can do a task rather use that.
However for a general CMS [MODX] is hard to beat.

Easier and faster to use then these two, HubSpot CMS Hub provides me with a long list of tools that make my marketing process more smooth and easy to manage, it doesn't get too technical but is also not too basic, so it has the balance I need when preparing campaigns for some of our sites.

The other company that we looked into was
and all of the features that it offered our organization. What MODX offered to us from development to everyday use just made more sense for our organization as a whole.
is still a great CMS platform, just not exactly what we were looking for.

Very scalable. e.g. in the [MODX] manager you can manage multiple websites at once without having to login else where. it is very convenient and this way resources and be easily managed and shared.
