Content Management Systems CMS

If you want a website created for your business but are worried because you don’t have the  skills to maintain your website then Content Management Systems or a CMS is probably the best option for you.

The fact that they require little to no knowledge of web design or coding make these systems appealing to all kinds of business owners. With Content Management Systems, you can easily use the built in user-friendly tools to create new pages. This is as easy as creating a new MS Word document on your computer. You don’t need any technical knowledge and you have as much control as you want. You can add anything from text and pictures through to a blog, newsletter sign-up and video.

Typical Steps with implementing a CMS website

First you will need to start by registering your website’s domain name and select a web host that can support your CMS software. Depending on the CMS software you choose, you can usually get started by purchasing an pre-made template (your website’s design) or you can use a CMS design company to create a completely original custom made templates for you. You will then need to consider factors such as:

  • How the information that goes on your website (layout, format, use of text, images etc.)
  • Whether the information is accessible in a way that is user-friendly for people to navigate.
  • Whether you have designed / structured your information to be found by search engines like Google and Yahoo.

Which is the best CMS? WordPress, Drupal and Joomla…

Here are a few you may want to consider: WordPress, Drupal and Joomla. CMS software such as these can be crafted into any layout or provide any function you require. They can be left to you to maintain and here’s the best bit – the software is free – it doesn’t cost a penny! The initial setup can be tricky so you may want to consider using a CMS design company to help you with this, but the benefits are worth it. Even users that have been using static HTML/CSS websites for years have started migrating their websites to Content Management Systems just because of how convenient and easy to use the software is.
