ry asking any web designer which CMS you should use, they will in most cases have a very decisive answer – the one they specialise in! But how do you decide and make sure you are choosing the best CMS for your needs? This post is about making sure the choice you make matches up well to your requirements ….
What is a CMS?
CMS is short for Content Management System i.e. a system that allows users to work on digital content in a collaborative way. What people really mean when they are talking about CMS is a solution that allows them to edit website’s content and look and feel (to an extent) without knowledge of web design or programming. Not so long ago, but what feels like a century ago in internet years, to edit website’s content was a dedicated webmaster’s job. Nowadays anyone who knows how to read and write and has a PC with an internet connection can via CMS edit websites, change or add text, images or adjust its look and feel.
But then – which one to choose? The list is almost endless so to narrow it down you should really ask yourself a few basic questions…
I’ve picked my CMS, website has been launched – I am all good now!
…Well not really…
Most people will really focus on their website development and launch, but will very much neglect the fact those websites need to be maintained. As you maintain your car or house, your website aso needs to be periodically updated and upgraded. This is not only so to prevent them from breaking but also due to security reasons. This of course comes with a price tag so when picking that CRM do determine what will be the cost of maintaining the same.
Sites all to often get neglected in terms of maintenance and security causing further down the line significant issues with the site’s functionalities, look and feel. What’s worse is that this scenario often also means the website gets hacked. Thus we cannot stress enough how important is to keep the website fully up to date!
