Content Management Systems

What is a CMS?

A content management system, or CMS for short, is a web application designed to make it easy for you to manage your website. It lets you add and edit content using a WYSIWYG editor (What You See Is What You Get).

Why should I use a CMS?

Do you want to save time, money and stress?

If your answer is YES then you should absolutely use a CMS. With a CMS you'll be able to change text and images on your website without needing to involve a third-party. When you do you'll see the changes take effect immediately! This will save you an immense amount of time as you can decide in the moment whether you're happy or not with your changes. If you're not then editing it again takes just a few seconds for you to get it looking the way you want.

How can a CMS help me?

A CMS can help you if you want to cut down on the time, money and stress that your current website involves or if you're starting up a new website and are looking for a cost-effective way to manage it.

Not only that, but a CMS is the best way to get your website to be mobile friendly, which means that you'll be able to view it from any device in the best quality possible.

Which CMS should I use?

Our recommendation is Wordpress for several reasons:

  • It's the most actively developed with more than 100 million users worldwide.
  • It's estimated that 18% of the web is in Wordpress.
  • It has tons of functionality and plugins to make it do whatever you want.
  • We have lots of experience using Wordpress and can customise it to your needs.

There are other CMS options such as Drupal and Joomla but it depends on your specific website requirements as to whether these systems are more appropriate or not for what you want to achieve.
