Why Use a CMS?
  • Easy for non-coders
    • A content management system is usually built for ease-of-use to almost any person with slight technical skills. Most content management systems have a simple back-end that allows creating and managing content very easy and code-free.
  • Allows multiple users
    • When you use a CMS for your website, you will have the ability to create different users and even separate roles for each user. CMS’s like WordPress have roles like Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor and Subscriber.
  • SEO-Friendly
    • Many content management systems are very search engine optimized out of the box. This means that they are built to maximize your website’s crawl-ability by the search engine spiders. It does this by having keyword rich URLs, structured data and being trusted by the search engines.

  • Design Templates
    • Designing a website from scratch can be quite the difficult feat. But when you use a CMS you will have the ability to easily change designs by using templates. Many content management systems have hundreds, if not thousands, of pre-made templates.
  • Schedule Content
    • Good content management systems allow you to schedule content so that it will automatically post your content when you desire. This is great for large companies who are constantly publishing content and have to schedule posts for the future.
  • Plugins/Add-ons
    • CMS software like WordPress has thousands of plugins that you can add to your website. These plugins allow you to add functionality to your website that helps your business better. For example, there is a plugin for WordPress that allows you to automatically backup your site everyday so you will never lose your data.
