Overall Satisfaction with Concrete5

I've used Concrete5 for several websites in the past.
  • Very easy learning curve.
  • Fast, reliable, open source.
  • Lots of nice themes and add-ons.
  • In page editing.
  • SEO friendly.
  • Non-programmers friendly.
  • Can't think of any.
  • Faster lead conversions
  • Increased sales on one e-commerce site that I did in the past for a friend who owns a rentals company.
I think Concrete5 is much easier to learn and edit than WordPress.
Concrete5 is well suited for small businesses with simple websites. It's good for information sites, for blogs, for e-commerce, for lead generation, etc. The only thing I would not recommend it for would be to treat it as a CRM, as that would entail a whole lot of custom coding (but I guess that's the same for any CMS).
