Having managed to set up a Joomla website, the next challenge will be that of acquiring content for the website. The popularity (and therefore the success) of your Joomla website will depend on the quality of content in it. If the website has top quality content, it will have more visitors and it will therefore be more successful. Conversely, if the website has mediocre content, it will have fewer visitors, and it will therefore be less successful.
Types of content you can use on your Joomla website
There are three types of content that you can use on your Joomla website.
Firstly, you have the option of using text content: which includes things like articles, forums posts and so on. This is the kind of content that we normally find in various portals, including the Nordstrom employees portal, also known as the MyNordstrom portal. With this particular portal, you notice that right from the Mynordstromlogin page (which is the first page you land on), and throughout the site, the content is mainly made up of text.
The second option is that of using graphics content: pictures, images, maps… and so on.
And the third option is that of using multimedia content: which mainly refers to video, audio and audiovisual content.
Ways in which you can acquire the content for your Joomla website
There are three main ways in which you can acquire the content for your Joomla website.
Firstly, you have the option of creating the content yourself. You may, for instance, write the articles or create the videos to be displayed on the website by yourself.
The second option is that of buying the content. There are people who specialize in creating content for sale, and you can get into some sort of arrangement with them.
The third option is that of having the people who will be using the website generate the content themselves. This is what we see in the various web-based forums: where you just set up the platform, and then let the visitors to create the content by themselves.
