CMS – Content Management Systems

content-management-system

There are essentially two types of websites that we build – flat websites and content managed (CMS) websites. Flat websites are suitable for those sites with a small amount of pages or those that will not be updated regularly. They look just as good visually as content managed sites and a user will generally not be able to tell whether a site is flat or content managed.

A content management system allows you to assure that your website is always up to date. Usually you would require someone with programming knowledge to go in every time you want to change a piece of text or an image. With a CMS you have the ability to go in and make changes yourself, even if you have no programming knowledge at all!

 

Easily update your website without the need for
any technical knowledge, from any computer
with internet access and without installing
any software.

Content management is the ability to update a website through an administration system accessible through your browser window from anywhere with an internet connection. The advantage of using a CMS is that you are able to update the information and images on your site when you need to.

A CMS is good for sites which have frequently updated content, such as latest news or features, a lot of articles or an eCommerce store. Another good reason to use a CMS is that search engines take site updates into account when ranking websites so if you are doing regular site updates, you are increasing your chances of getting a better Google ranking.

At Browser Media, we offer three fully featured content management systems for website projects, these are the open source Umbraco CMS and the enterprise level Kentico and Sitecore CMS systems.

We give our clients the ability to update their own
websites. No programming knowledge required!

The Content Management Backend is simple and easy to use. If you can use a word processing program, you will have no trouble using the CMS backend. You do not need to be an advanced user (or a geek like us).

All of a Content Management System’s built in functionality won’t just help you save time updating your site, it will also save you money because you will no longer need a programmer to do the job!
