Why use Notion as a CMS?

But, back to our business, Notion can host a website as powerful and as efficient as any other CMS. Think of Notion being as reliable as (or many even better) WordPress or Wix.

Let's look at the main reasons why you should consider using Notion as your CMS.

1. Notion CMS means no code

To use notion as your next CMS, you don't even need to code. All of the changes to your websites are made right inside of Notion.

Your CMS and backend is basically a Notion page designated to be your website.

To change things on your website, you just have to add and/or remove blocks. The best part is that you don't even need to code to use Notion.

A Notion website works just as a normal Notion page, though.... It is a website!

2. Minimalistic websites

Notion gives the huge advantage of tidy websites. The same interface that the Notion app gives when you're making new pages will be given to your website as well.

What's not to love about a minimalistic website? As we always say, it's really hard to make a Notion page look ugly.

The classic all-white page will be your next website. You know what's even better? The fact that a Notion-built website has dark mode available.

That is an example of a Notion website built with Simple.ink, and held in dark mode. Any user can change that according to their preference: light or dark mode.

3. Head start templates

In case you're finding it difficult designing your website, fear not, a Notion website has you covered even in this situation.

If you've used Notion before, then you might know how there is a way to duplicate other pages. That's why we've built a library of Notion website templates that are 100% free to use.

You don't necessarily have to use our templates to start your website - what we're trying to prove here is the fact that a Notion website can be built without even designing it.

Whatever Notion template you find on the internet and is duplicatable, you can transform it into your website.

4. Notion websites pair with integrations

Integrating is one of the most fun parts of building notion websites.

You can integrate any of your favourite tools inside a Notion website. That's right, anything that's got an integration code, an embeddable code or an embeddable URL!

Yet again, we have a library of apps to integrate in Notion, and we also teach you how to do that.
