Joomla is one of the free CMS (Content Management Systems) that became very populars and created a comunity around it during its several years of existance. The number of websites created with Joomla is numbered in a few millions, so one can say it's one of the most popular tools for that. The next reasons are only a few why you shoold use Joomla for your website design. You only need a web server that handles php and a mysql database to install this CMS and, after configuring it, to have a functional website. Next you have to add some functions (using the components, modules and plugins) you need and select or create a Joomla theme.

It is user friendly and easy to learn

Even beginners are welcome to use this - it may take longer to find out about all its function but it's easy to learn. It takes at most a few days to learn it all over. The CMS is rather big (especially when you never worked with other CMSs) because it's under constant development for some years, but it's easy to follow the modification made in time - there are availabe online various versions of Joomla.

It's a free Content Managment System

You can download for free, so this would be in your advantage. You wouldn't be wasting money for an application that you wouldn't even know how to use. The recommendation it to spend money on its customization (especially as a beginner, or when you want your site optimized to its best) and manteinance - but it's a lot less money than creating a website from scratch. Use experts in Joomla, or at least someone that have already worked with it for a few months or years.

It created a community that offers support

The constant use and improvement of Joomla triggered an increase number of users with expertise in different degres about this CMS, its structure and extensions. If you have problems (using, configuring or extending Joomla) you can search for responses with any search engines - there are great chances to find them. Even if you don't find any good respons for your problem, you can always ask. Most of the online support is free, but in some cases you can pay for it (like an online subscription to some websites or for experts' responses).

It's extensible and flexible - it gives users control

Joomla was built to be enhanced. When you download and install the packege from Joomla development website you only get the main - basic package. There are thounsands of components, modules and plugins you can add this basic package from Joomla Extension Directory - some of them for free, some for a price. You have to know exactly what you want from your future website before adding any new script to your Content Management System.

It's secure by default

Joomla is built to be secure in most environments, but you must understand that Internet security is a vast and fast-moving topic. No set of rules can cover all possible situations, especially if new types of attack are being developed every year. This means you have to extend Joomla security with server security (I mean your server security).

Because Joomla is being upgraided constantly and the developers add new functions or fix bugs (even security bugs) you should always update you Joomla version and the extensions (components, modules and plugins) you have installed on your website.

If you want to make a presence online, with all the advantages and obligation that come from that, you have to get some necessary steps. Depending of your experience over internet they can be easy or they can be difficult, but with the appropriate help everything will be easy and you will only benefit from this activity.

Get your domain name

The first thing you need to do before anything else is to get yourself a domain name. Choose wisely because it's going to represent you online and must define you: it can be your name, your trademark or business name or your field of activity.

Depending the Top Level Domain (TLDs) you choose (they have their own rules), you will have to pay an annual fee to a registrar for the right to use that domain name or you can buy it "for life" (until you die, the interne dies or you decide to delete it). In some situations you'll have to buy similar domain name in order to prevent lose of clients or fraud, but you can find more information from tips for registering and choosing the domain name - read them and follow them.

You have to protect your domain name, so you have to pay attention to this thing in order to protect it from stealing.

The policy become necessary when your employee have social interaction over internet with a lot of people all over the world and you don't want for this to interfere with your business. There are a lot of cases in the last few years about people losing their jobs because they have commented on Twitter or Facebook or they have posted on their personal blogs about their experience in your company or about their opinions about your clients.

Don't be very restrictive

You can not forbidd people to enjoy themselves and use social newtork. Also, don't creat a list with do not share things: it will only be longer and longer with time. It's better if use the policy to set some guidelines instead of do not do things.

Don't forget to specify how much time people should use social media

For some people in your company promoting your business online and offline is their jobs, they do it daily. But for the most employee social media interaction is just for fun. If you don't make it clear they can spend their time on social networks instead working for you, as they should.

Encourage the people you are woking with to use further social media, especially if they are well-connected (they have lots and lots of friends), but don't let them turn into a bad habit.

Make your social media policy very clear, but do not enter in details

I mean you should be focused about activities, connections, relationships. Social networks are perfect in promoting your products and services, but these will probably change in time. If you are clearly asking your employee to promote your business and its every part you will have to update the policy every time you are adding, updating and removing a product or service. On the other hand, this will irritate your employee and they will no longer enjoy your company.

Adapt and update your policy

Times are changing, we all know it and we notice it every day. Do not include in your social media policy old and outdated stuff (ideas, rules). If something changes in your business policy (a new market, a new section, something big in general) and this is relevant in your social media policy update it right away. Don't postpone things because problems might appear.

Do not create too many social media policies

Considering how many social networks exists over internet (some of them well known, with millions of users, others with only a few thounsands) and how many of them appear and dissapear every year, you can be tempted to create a policy for each them (one for Twitter, one for Facebook, for personal blogs and youtube). Don't. Use one general social media policy to consider all possible social media and customize it for your business.
