Why Should You Use A Content Management System (CMS)

content management systems or websites
It’s the 21st century and if you don’t already have a website yet, you might want to start thinking about getting one. This process can be a daunting and expensive task. For your business to grow one needs a website.
One of the best ways to overcome this is to use a Content Management System or CMS for short. These are open source platforms that allow you the user to easily manipulate content even if you are not familiar with building websites. CMS’s are easy to use and you can get just about anything you need online. Examples of these CMS’s include programs like Drupal, Joomla and the most popular one, WordPress. If you are interestest in a new, good looking website ask our professional team today.
Here below is a breakdown of why you should use a CMS for your business:



1. Easy to maintain

Content management systems are not only easy to use but are easy to maintain over the long run. One thing I find is a HUGE misconception with websites are the lack of understanding the necessity to keep a website updated. Most people think that when a website is built that that is it … it’s done. On the contrary. I can’t stress this enough with keeping your website up-to-date. I’ve had many clients where I built a website for and they declined the opportunity to keep their website on a maintenance plan, then a couple of months later they come running to me with a website that is outdated or hacked. CMS’s need to be updated all the time to prevent attacks to the site. Keeping a website updated can also help with SEO.



2. Cheaper to develop

This one is pretty self-explanatory. Building a website on a CMS platform can and is often cheaper than building a custom. Websites built from scratch will take longer to develop. You can build a fairly decent site for free using a CMS. The installation process for CMS’s is quick, open source and free to download online. Get a quote today on our maintenance packages.



3. Easy to use

If you are not familiar with the inner workings of a website, websites built on popular platforms like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla are easy enough to use for people who don’t know the jargon.



4. Get anything you need online

If you can think it, then you can probably find it online somewhere. You can literally build anything using a CMS. They are flexible and the possibilities are unlimited.



5. Search Engine Optimisation

So, not only you need a good looking and professional website, but people need to find you online. That’s where SEO or Search Engine Optimisation comes in. SEO in lamens terms is the process of optimising your website in such a way that it will show up in search results using a certain keyword. What people don’t understand is that SEO takes time. Your website won’t come up number 1 tomorrow but over time. According to Google, there are over 200 factors that affect where your website is displayed on search results.¬†Different keywords will yield different search results. You aim should not be to show up number 1 on all search results but rather on keywords that are important and meaningful to your business. There are a number of SEO tools out there where you can get an SEO audit on your site and see what you can improve on.
