The Benefits Of A CMS (Content Management System)
One of the latest innovations for small business websites is the introduction of the content management system. (CMS) A content management system is a web platform designed to allow the owner of the website to self manage the content of the site. This has especially been of interest to small to mid-sized businesses. This service has been a demand for the majority of our clients at Severity Design who want the ability to be able to make updates and minor changes to their website themselves. Up until this point, most webmasters were responsible for making pain staking updates to headlines, news and image adjustments manually. Now we can design your website within the framework of a content management system to allow you to take over and manage your website 100% yourself. Here are some other features a CMS allows you to do:
* Allow for a large number of people to contribute to and share stored data
* Control access to data, based on user roles (defining which information users or user groups can view, edit, publish, etc.)
* Aid in easy storage and retrieval of data
* Allowing content creators to submit content without requiring technical knowledge of HTML or the uploading of files.
Although the cost for CMS systems like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla are free to use, it’s the time that it takes to create the custom template around this infrastructure that ends up being time consuming and a little more expensive than you’re average static website. Rest assured, we are able to put together a package that will fit your needs and your budget.
Some organizations simply don’t have the time to maintain their own website or desire to do so. Who has the extra time to give to figuring out the technology essential to operating the system in exchange for the day to day operations of your company? For those who would rather have a webmaster handle your updates, content management and adding fresh images, Severity Design also offers a monthly servicing plan that allows for unlimited changes to your website for a low monthly fee. Consider us your personal marketing department except we don’t take up office space! If your interested in either of these services contact Severity Design today for a estimate. We’d love to hear from you!
