When it comes to selecting a content management system (CMS), like WordPress vs. Joomla vs. Drupal among others, too many people focus on the external elements, like a CMS' reputation rather than on how the platform aligns with their goals, resources, and team - which is what ultimately yields results.
As a marketer, it is your job to deliver results.
Those results may take the form of traffic, downloads, inquiries, sign-ups, leads, qualified prospects or a host of other things. Hopefully, return on investment (ROI) is one of them.

It is the reason we decided to create this review specifically for marketers.
To make the most of your marketing, you want to invest your time in the areas that produce the greatest results.

For that reason, this review does not simply declare one CMS "best." Instead, we have ranked each of the top three open source content management systems, WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, on various factors that can help you determine the best match for your team:
