    Hi,

    Looking for someone experienced with website development. I need some recommendations on what software to start with for a future business endeavor. I want the following features:
    • Easy to add new content
    • Easy to SEO
    • Ability to add a marketplace in the future
    A little about the website (please note I am not indicating the specific genre of the website - for privacy reasons)
    • Will have reviews of each product
    • Will have a list of where one can buy these products locally
    • Will generally have information regarding the product
    • In the future, a marketplace to buy things related to the product (most likely via drop shipping)
    I'm really looking for a content management system that will help me easily do all these things. If someone could give me a few ideas. I was looking at wordpress, however it seems more suited towards blogs and not what I'm trying to do.

    Thanks!

    Your best bet is to use a light CMS and add those features yourself.

    There are CMS with shops like PrestaShop or OpenCart even Magento but I am not sure about how you can easily add new content =)

    If you are looking for an e-commerce solution there are a few open sources out there.

    In PHP you got:
    1. Magento (advanced and powerful)
    2. WooCommerce (easier to use)
    3. Open Cart
    4. The list could be longer
    If you are thinking about a small e-commerce store then I'd suggest you use WooCommerce, because it is easy. It is also based on Wordpress. But you must consider the security, i.e always keep updated.

    This was long ago. Today wordpress is great for easy management & configuration of almost any kind of website
