What is a Content Management System?
CMS Website Development from The Design Foundry.
A content management system, often abbreviated as CMS, is software that helps users create, manage, and modify content on a website without the need for specialized technical knowledge. Once we’ve built your website in a content management system, you can maintain the content on your site with an interface that feels similar to Microsoft Word.
A Content Management System reduces the calls to your web design agency or IT department for changes to the web site. A CMS website reduces the time required to publish, allowing you to get your content on-line faster. This is a very important issue for any professional web site. Content Management Systems can also be used internally within your company for document management, for maintaining your E-Commerce store, user forums, membership sites, portfolios, and more.
Why Use a Content Management System?
There’s more to content management than just your website.
Using a Content Management System allows you to add efficiency to your marketing by allowing content and blog posts to be updated quickly and easily. Content management systems also help to you maintain a uniform look and feel to every page, ensuring uniformity in design and brand compliance. And, you can accomplish additional marketing tasks with integrated solutions that connect to your marketing tactics, such as lead generation, social media, email marketing, analytics, and search engine optimization (SEO).
