20 Reason Joomla!™ Should Always be Used for Corporate Websites!
01: Hackers LOVE WordPress! (Remember Jan 1st. 2013 Brazilian Team Hack Attack over 100,000 WordPress sites affected.)
02: Multilingual capabilities comes included. Install languages straight from the back end!
04: Install Extension (from Joomla! repository) Straight from the Back end Admin

06: Multiple Users with ACL Permission Controls
07: Joomla's Default Content Template Rocks!
08: Greater Flexibility and Control of core design and scripting. Templating, Typography, CSS etc.
09: Joomla! was Made for Commercial Web Design and ECommerce, WordPress was literally made for Blogging and curating text!
10: The Admin area is way more intuitive and easier to use! Thank you Icons!
11: The biggest corporations in the world use Joomla! Not WordPress!
12: Support! WordPress is devoid of important forums (community chat, PM) features
13: WordPress does have allot of FREE Plug Ins! But Joomla's component and modules are more powerful and easier to debug!
14: More flexibility to scale, more freedoms to customize and the force to collaborate on your content!
15: The RAD framework Believe us! It's Awesome!
16: Responsive Front and Back Ends
17: Joomla!'s forum, documentation and extensions repo is by far superior!
18: Joomla!'s integrated page caching system!
19: Joomla!'s Control Panel in ADMIN is so much easier to look at!

Don't get us wrong, WordPress has it's merits, there's no doubt about that! We are just saying that Joomla! is just plain better when it comes to these issues: saving time debugging, finding a plug-in, customizing your template amongst many others! SO don't be fooled
"Popular Doesn't Always Mean Best!"
If you are a blogger, we actually recommend WordPress for that task, as it does blogging well. Joomla!™ on the other hand, can be just as great a Blogging system, but it's an even better corporate site or shopping cart system. In addition for webmasters, the time I save in finding a solution to complicated bug issues in the Joomla! forum is extremely fast thanks to (PM, Private Messaging), resulting in thousands of dollars in saved time.
Joomla!'s™ Extension Directory is Easier to Use!
Looking for plug-ins on the WordPress repository can be extremely frustrating, especially if you are used to have screen grabs and demos of every plug in right on the main page. Personalty, I find the simplistic layout of WordPress.org a bit annoying.
Joomla!™ is not the Most Popular! But it's the Coolest!
In October 2010 is when the changing down trend for Joomla!™ searches happened. This is when Joomla!™ 1.6 was released and due to Joomla!™ not being backwards compatible with J!1.5, many people abandoned J! 1.5 for Wordpress. For simple site owners the move was a good move, as they mostly just required the WYSIWIG to post their pages. But the growing pains were especially difficult for site owners with shopping carts, as WordPress is not suitable for more complex carts.
As far as I can see WordPress will probably always be more popular due to the fact that more people require simple sites than corporate scaled sites. Just be wary on being convinced that WordPress is the best solution for your business model. In conclusion, if you are business use Joomla!™ it will pay dividends in long run!
