If it’s been a few years since you’ve invested in a new website, you may not be aware of how content management systems (CMS) have evolved. They are no longer the complex and cost prohibitive add-ons that once felt out of reach. DMA Solutions looks to content management systems for building virtually every client website we develop and have five good reasons why you should consider one for your next website.
5 Reasons to have CMS
1. Gentle Learning Curve
With platforms such as WordPress and HubSpot, non tech-savvy marketers can easily learn how to manage their own web updates with dashboards and menus that utilize familiar terms and navigation. No HTML knowledge required!
2. You’re in Control
Need to make on-the-fly product updates, add a new team member or freshen your brand story? No problem. A CMS makes basic web updates quick and timely so that your website remains an accurate and relevant hub for visitors to learn from and interact with your brand. You also have the flexibility to make changes anytime from anywhere – and easily share the management responsibility with others on your team.
3. You Save Money
Not having to employ a website developer to make basic content updates saves you marketing dollars and gives you the budget freedom to make more frequent updates… a WIN-WIN scenario.
4. Built-in SEO Tools
Many CMS platforms offer some level of SEO optimization to help you grade page performance and make necessary improvements. You will be prompted with recommendations for boosting your website’s search results and be able to make adjustments with just a few clicks.
5. Functionality & Security
Trusted CMS platforms are backed by a team of developers who are making regular tweaks and upgrades to enhance overall performance and protect against security threats. If there is a breach, they are immediately working to resolve issues and restore the integrity of your web data.
