Why use a CMS?

A Content Management System (CMS) is essentially software used to edit your website content.

What Is A CMS?

A Content Management System (CMS) is software that stores your website content, enables easy editing for clients, and allows multiple clients to log in to a single system and collaborate on updating their website. It works like this: we do the complicated work of actually building your site into the CMS…then we hand you the keys, and you have the ability to add and update content as you please via a simple, intuitive but powerful dashboard.

Here's a few reasons why you should consider adding a CMS to your next website project:

  • You can update on your own terms - Let’s say you wanted to quickly add a news article or image to one of your web pages. Without a CMS, you’d have to ask your web developer to add the items for you. Rather than being held hostage by your web development company, a CMS cuts out the middle man and enables YOU to update and edit the content of your website. You’ll gain the ability to make your website more dynamic, more to-the-minute, and more valuable to your visitors.
  • No HTML knowledge? No problem! - our bespoke CMS Editor comes with a WYSIWYG editor (What You See Is What You Get). If you know how to create a simple document in Microsoft Word, you’ll have no problem using our CMS to amend web pages, blog posts or news articles etc.
  • They're great for SEO (search engine optimisation) - Google LOVES websites that are regularly updated and having a CMS to hand makes site updates quick and simple. The more updates you make yourself the more active your site appears to Google. Which is good!
  • They're a great investment - over time, a CMS will easily pay for itself many times over compared to web developer charges to update your site manually at our end

A great content management system costs a lot less than you'd think and the benefits are many.
