What Flavor is Right for You?

Content Managements Systems come in a lot of flavors. Sure. I've got my favorites, but it isn't one-size-fits-all.

I'll help you choose a system that's right for you. One that's based on your content needs:

  • How complex is your content?
  • How much money are you prepared to invest in development costs?
  • Who will be using the CMS?
  • How often will you be updating the website?

Content Management Systems

Origami representing the concept of website development.A content management system (CMS) is a powerful publishing tool that can make it easier for you to communicate with your audience.

What a Content Management System Does

A content management system is a tool that allows a website owner to publish content without needing technical knowledge of HTML. Advantages include:

  • Update website content and even add pages to your website without needing to hire a web professional.
  • Allow multiple users to contribute and manage content.
  • Respond quickly with content that your customers and prospective customers want.
  • Add shopping carts, blogs or other applications to your website quickly and easily.

What a Content Management System Doesn't Do

Make no mistake - a content management system does not guarantee clear, concise and compelling content. Just because you have a tool that makes it easy to publish content does not guarantee the quality or relevance of your content. That's what content strategy is for - to make sure you have a plan for evaluating existing content, creating new content, publishing content, and managing content that people care about. Content comes first!
