If you’re a business owner maintaining a web site (really, who isn’t these days) do you find yourself waiting days for updates to your web site to be completed? Are you constantly frustrated at the time, money and effort to interact with your web team to get things done?
Nearly every web site owner asks these questions and more. If you weren’t sure that you needed a CMS (Content Management System) or you didn’t know what one was, let me enlighten you.
Here’s 5 reasons how a CMS (like our own AuroraCMS) can benefit your business.
A CMS gives you the power to bring your changes to the web as fast as you can type. Changing content on the fly, updating mistakes or misinformation and uploading documents can be performed with ease.
Lower maintenance costs
Sometimes it can cost several hundred, or even thousands of dollars for a few content changes to a web site. With a CMS you can change and update as often as you like, at your convenience, for no extra cost. A CMS takes the pain and stress out of maintaining your website.
Anyone can update the content
Now you don’t need someone with web knowledge to maintain the website. As long as you have basic computer skills (word processing level), you can easily take control of your web site. A business owner, team member or secretary can take care of everything.
Site design remains intact
Using software like FrontPage can render your website a disgrace after a round of changes. A CMS prevents you from altering the sites basic template structure and graphic design. This means that you can trust anyone to change your content with a minimum of fuss.
Tired of your existing site design? Have a new template designed up and drop it right in. Your content will already be there and working.
Access from anywhere, at any time
Forget FTP programs or clunky software that only works on one computer in the office. On any computer load up the web browser and log in. Even away on business or using the laptop on the train to work you can draft up or publish an update.
