Is there a market for such a simple CMS?
Yes there is!
At some point in time we have tried freemium model: text and image editing for free, video, maps, files and more for $39. And you know what happened? People were just using the the free, version. Text and images were enough for majority. Some businesses just needed text editing (eg. daily menu on a restaurant page).
