Win an eCommerce and Discussions Package from concrete5!

by Brant Wilson

July 6, 2010 in Resources

concrete5 has offered to give away an eCommerce license and a Discussions license to the crowd. The value of this giveaway is $145.

What is concrete5?

concrete5 is an extremely user friendly content management system. Content management systems (CMS) make life easier for the not so technical website owner. Even if you have technical skills a good CMS can save you a lot of time and energy. If you are operating a website of any size in the year 2010 a good CMS is critical. A couple of years ago our friend Jacob Gube over at Six Revisions had a post entitled 10 Promising Content Management Systems which identified concrete5 as a solid CMS. It has been a couple of years since that post and the user experience has only gotten better.

So, if you are interested in winning a free eCommerce and Discussions license please comment on the post to win. Here are some sneak peeks at this great CMS.

Here is a screen shot of the eCommerce backend. The backend allows you to create products, place them on a page, and group them in many different ways.

Any good CMS has a lot of support. The Discussions section has already answered pretty much every question you can think of. However, if you are having problems the nice people over at concrete5 are there to help answer all your questions.

Here is a video that gives some more details about the concrete5 system and how it will help make running your website a breeze.

Please comment on this post to enter the giveaway. We will announce the winner on Friday. Good luck!

    “If you are operating a website of any size in the year 2010 a good CMS is critical.”

    I disagree. For small, static websites, I find that hand-coding everything on top of a PHP framework is much easier.

    However, for larger websites, CMSs make things much easier. And in the case of forums and eCommerce websites, CMSs are necessary.

    Anyways, I hope I win a prize!

    I discovered Concrete5 several weeks back and I’ve been preaching it to anyone I know building or reworking corp, content & eCommerce sites — two have taken the bait and have never looked back to Drupal. C5 just rocks. I’d be great to get the eCommerce & Discussion plugins!
