Using a Content Management System (CMS) to power your website could be one of the best investments you make in your website – and your business. And you do need to invest – your website is one of your main tools for communicating with your customers and you want to make sure they love it. But that doesn’t mean you want to get bogged down in technical details. A CMS marries power with simplicity so you still have time to concentrate on improving your business.
Many of us still don’t have an idea what content management system is. Let me make it clear for you.
When we started designing websites many years back, they were mainly HTML sites. They were simple HTML sites. Easy to build, but maintaining them was difficult. It would get particularly difficult when the site had many pages. If the client requested to update a phone number on one page; we would need to make that change on all pages of the website. So it was time consuming and needed a lot of effort for things that didn’t add too much value. I mean changing a phone number that took hours on end, was not the best use of your time. Things changed for the better when we started designing websites using CMS.
Now a similar task using a CMS does not more than a few minutes. Change it in one place, and it gets reflected on all pages. So you can spend your time on more creative and productive things. Like working on a new idea or a design. You get more work done with less effort. A CMS website is therefore dynamic & database driven. It is very easy to update a CMS website through the Admin Dashboard. It is a password protected centralized area with tools for admins & and other authorized users. And is usually used to control & configure different options for the website.
Sometimes this question will come to your mind. If i am using CMS what will be the benefits. Here are some of the benefits i listed out.
It’s easy for the non-technically minded.
Not all users have the same comfort level with technology, but the basic CMS functions of writing and publishing content, and slightly more advanced ones of adding media are usually easy for everyone to grasp. In fact, anyone who can use word-processing software can use a CMS for the basic functions – so you don’t even have to spend much time on training.
It allows multiple users.
In a business, there are many people who can have input into your website, from those who add product pages to those who produce blog posts for your content marketing efforts. A CMS makes it easy to manage roles and publishing permissions for all these users so that only those you allow can publish content and content only goes live when you’re ready.
It streamlines scheduling.
Related to that, any decent CMS will give you an at a glance view of the status of all content, whether it’s live, being reviewed or a draft. That doesn’t just apply to blog posts but to product pages and other website pages. It allows you to assign tasks and check that they have been done. And it’s easy to integrate planned content with your marketing plan so that everyone knows what’s happening when.
It improves site maintenance.
Need to change something on your site? Without a CMS that can mean having to trawl through hundreds of pages, making changes on each one. With a CMS, the underlying architecture is the same so you can make maintenance changes, update the CMS software and add functionality without breaking the site. In fact, with the right CMS, it may keep itself up to date automatically.
Design changes are simple.
Speaking of making changes, let’s talk about the look of the site. If you want to change the site design, a CMS makes the process easy. That’s because the content and design are in separate virtual boxes, so you can make design changes while keeping the site functional. Another advantage is the ability to make a change in your administrative dashboard and have it automatically propagate to the entire site. This gives your site a consistent appearance and is great for branding. It also makes it easy to add a mobile interface to your site.
Access CMS Website Using Any Device
This alone puts immense power in your hands if you think about it. You are able to add new content from wherever you may be across the globe. The website Admin Dashboard is accessible over the internet through any device that is connected to the internet. You can, in fact, use any device that is available to you. Including your mobile, smartphones, tabs, PCs, laptops, or any other handheld device at your disposal. You can add pages or make changes to them. If you are an avid blogger, you can write and post article while travelling. You can update your blog with all the amazing things as they happen! Isn’t that exciting!
You’re in control.
All of this adds up to the biggest advantage of a CMS. Instead of being reliant on an external vendor, with a CMS you are in control, with the ability to assign tasks and roles and to check progress at any time. That puts you in the driving seat when it comes to this important business tool.
