Overall Satisfaction with Concrete5

We use Concrete5 for some of our smaller clients who are not quite ready to jump on another CMS that we use called HubSpot. Concrete5 has many options that let us create a great stepping stone site that gets our clients thinking and using their website with more of an inbound marketing strategy. It is quick and easy to set up and customize. I use it as a freelance web designer too.
  • Customizable - The ability to add modules (some free, some paid)
  • Ease of Install and setup
  • Templates that can be changed out of and used in different parts of your site
  • More robust form making out of the box without the need to purchase a more robust module
  • More visitor analytics built into the dash board
  • Subdirectories in the file manager
  • Better customer service
  • Quick setup
  • Ability to hand off some of the content creation to the client
Make sure your web host can easily implement and install Concrete5. I use Bluehost exclusively for my Concrete5 web hosting. For me the ease of installation and set up of Concrete5 is important because most of the jobs that I use Concrete5 for, require a quick turnaround.
