Business Catalyst to WordPress migration
With the recent announcement that Adobe is closing down their Business Catalyst platform, for business owners looking to make a smooth transition to a third-party service – the time to act is now.
Although Adobe was excited to acquire the system back in 2009, it seems the SaaS solution has run its course, and the end of life migration is in place with March 26th, 2021 being the official date the end date of the software.
Business Catalyst system provides a series of functions for websites including content management, eCommerce, email marketing, Integrated CRM database, reporting & analytics as well as social media integration.
The real competitive advantage of the system was that it allowed web developers to resell their hosted service as part of a reseller affiliate program. With this ‘gravy train’ now being removed from the market and being phased out over the coming two years, there are many developers and websites out there that will need to switch over to a new system to ensure their data is protected and their website stays online.
For many, the easy solution is to migrate their Business Catalyst system to WordPress, which is one of the leading CMS solutions for businesses and professionals. The system is easy to use, offers plenty of design possibilities, offers powerful statistics and is mobile optimised.

Why change your Business Catalyst to WordPress?
WordPress provides a platform which skilled web developers can create SEO-friendly, fully customisable, ecommerce platform that does everything Business Catalyst could do and more.
From its wide-ranging plug-ins that allow you to do almost anything – from automation, pop-ups, payment gateways through to seamless social media automation & integration with just about any cloud-based program out there – your business will truly be transformed using the WordPress platform.
WordPress is the most popular open source content management system in the world, with thousands of templates, plenty of plug-ins, and it’s simple to use – just ask the 75 million users out there.
Being such a popular program, it means that most skilled website developers and designers are familiar with how to program, design, redesign and upgrade as required – so you’re not having to search high and low for a developer or designer to help rollover your Business Catalyst system as the program is phased out.
