Technology is advancing at an ever increasing pace. Along with that, is our desire and need to have the most up to date information possible. As consumers we want everything now, whether that be a product or information.
When it comes to the online portion of your business, you need to have the ability to update your website now. No sending in information to your developer and waiting weeks for turnaround times. A content management system (CMS) is critical to your ability to manage your site in a timely manner.
The right CMS will allow you to publish, edit, and manage the content on your site. Some CMS solutions are more complex than others, and some will allow you to make significant adjustments to your site (like adding or deleting new pages) without needing to speak with your developer. Every site and person will have a different set of requirements and the solution that may be right for your neighbour, may not be the best choice for you. Consider all of the variables. What kind of traffic to you hope to garner on your site? Do you intend to expand your business or service and product offering within the next few years? Is there any possibility that you may wish to add an eCommerce element to your website? Will there be one person contributing and adjusting content on the site, or will there be several? What level would you rate their technology skills?
There are many choices out there for a CMS, so make sure that when you are making that decision, all your needs are considered. Come in and talk with us before you commit to one solution. Needs are unique to each business and you should take the time up front to make sure you have selected the right solution. Lately, we have been redoing sites due to frustrated owners who have selected the wrong solution.
