An effective website will help you attract new visitors, convert visitors into leads, and help you nurture leads to become customers. Many companies are stuck with websites managed by IT staff or contractors. It´s difficult and expensive to make changes, and the site is not integrated well with their marketing automation and CRM solutions.

What is then the best SaaS CMS or hosted CMS for small to medium-sized companies? It should be easy for non-IT staff to make changes, but at the same time allow for quality control and consistent design and user experience. It should not be a stand-alone solution since most small and medium-sized companies can´t afford to spend money on integrating website analytics, email and marketing automation to better manage the buyer journey.

The analyst Gartner has a magic quadrant for Web Content Management to help you identify the best solution for your company.

It might therefore be better to look at a different “magic quadrant” to identify the best solution for your company.
