Edit your website yourself with a Content Management System (CMS)

Many websites, especially smaller websites, are built using static webpages. These webpages are built using HTML, Javascript, and Macromedia Flash computer code. This code is difficult to access on web servers and is virtually impossible to edit without special software and training. Don’t get me wrong, it has its merits but static websites are more expensive to maintain.

To solve this website design and maintenance problem, a new technology called a Content Management System (CMS) was developed. A CMS uses a database to store, retrieve, and edit the content of your website. Each page of your site is stored as simple text - making it easy to edit, search, and manipulate. Furthermore, the CMS database allows for additional features to be easily integrated into the website: user login and passwords, events and calendars, blogs, news feeds, and much more.

Essentially, a CMS makes the web more usable. It lowers the barriers to entry and makes it much easier to launch a site, keep it updated and get more out of it.

Here are 5 reasons you and your organization should be using a content management system to manage your web site:

1. Cheap or Free

Using a CMS for your web site means you can use cheap or free software and save loads of money. Haven’t you heard? Stingy is in.

2. It’s Easy

If you’ve got any computer savvy, our CMS software is easy to use. If you can send an e-mail, use Microsoft Word or set up a Facebook account, then you can use a CMS. And in most cases normal use doesn’t run the risk of mucking up the design. It’s web site creation for non-techies.

3. Do It Yourself

With a CMS you enter the Do-It-Yourself world. No more waiting for and paying a programmer to fix a tiny error, saving you time and money.

4. Many Users, Many Places

Most CMS software is online and offers multiple users, which means you’re not the only one who can fix something in a pinch and you can access it from anywhere. Which means if you’ve got Internet access in Pofadder, you could work from there. That also means your important site is backed up on a secure server with multiple redundancies, not some high school kid’s laptop.

5. Climb the Search Results

Our custom proprietry CMS software also makes it easier to optimize your search engine results. That means your site is more likely to land on the first page of Google results which means people are more likely to find you.

There are a hundred other reasons we could list here … the most important is that we have built our own custom CMS specifically aimed at easy SEO ( Search Engine Optimisation )
