Today websites are much more dynamic than they where in the past. Gone are the days of setting up a static website and just leaving it be. In today’s fast-paced society, people expect a certain level of interactivity on a website, whether that be a blog, social media feeds, or continually updated content to keep their attention and keep them coming back to visit your site. The solution for this essential need for fresh content is a CMS, or Content Management System.
So what exactly is a CMS?
A Content Management System is an easy-to-use software that stores all the content from your website. With this it allows multiple web administrators to login in and update a website’s content as you please without any coding experience or the need to contact your developer.
Why this is great for you?
1. It’s convenient.
You have the ability to log in anytime and update your site on your own terms. Let’s say it’s a Sunday and you need to post a company-wide reminder on your homepage. Ideally you want everyone to see it right away Monday morning. With a CMS you’re not restricted by the times your developer is available to update your site. You can change content, upload images, videos, and more! It completely cuts out the middleman, making your site more dynamic and ultimately more valuable to your visitors.
A CMS is a WYSIWYG meaning “What you see is what you get.” If know how to create a Word Document, you’ll have no problem at all updating your site.
3. Cost Effective
Although we’re still here to help if needed, simple updates won’t require you to contact your developer. Other than the one time fee to build your site with an integrated CMS, there are no monthly fees for accessing your content.
4. Stay up to Date
Any quality CMS such as Drupal or Wordpress will provide you with functionality updates on a regular basis, giving you peace of mind that your site and content are secure.
5. Build a Marketing Strategy
A CMS also gives you the ability to implement a marketing strategy harnessing email marketing, blogging tools, social media and custom forms, among many other powerful tools right at your fingertips.
