Content Management Systems
We don’t just buy a template, tweak a couple things, and then call it “custom.” Nope, we take the time to understand your business, your target audience, and your brand. Then we use this knowledge to create a unique, beautiful, and functional design, customized to suit your internet marketing needs.
Content Management Systems provide you with the flexibility to be able to make changes to your site from any computer (or phone!) with an internet connection. So whether your at the office, at home, or half way across the world, you know that you have full control over the content on your site.
If you have ever used Microsoft Word then you can use a Content Management System. You don’t want to spend time worry about what things will look like when you hit publish, which is why every Content Management System that we use features a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editing system making it easy to add/remove/change text, or add images or whatever else you would like to do.
A huge problem that we’ve seen with our clients is the idea that, we’re here now, but this is where we want to be in the future. Your brand new start-up may not need an ecommerce solution or photo gallery now, but how about in 3 months? 6 months? 1 year? With a Content Management System, your site can grow with you and we can incorporate new features as you have need for them.
Just like our standard web design services, everything that we do here is custom. Your design will start with a blank canvas and will be built specifically with your requests and your business in mind. For us, a design is more then just a design, from colors to positioning, we focus on usability and emotional response to create the crown jewel of your marketing crown.
One of the best parts of working with a Content Management Systems is the options that you have available. Though there are many different options there are three that stand out that we work with on a regular basis.
If there was one CMS we would bet our lives on, it would be WordPress. It is the easiest to use and the quickest to learn. It’s functions are straightforward and simple for the non-techie to understand. Learn more about the power of WordPress.
Joomla is designed a bit differently than WordPress, with its focus on modules and extensions instead of posts and pages. It’s also harder to use than WordPress and takes a longer time to learn. But what it lacks in ease of use, it makes up for in raw power. With over 7500 professional extensions and a powerful backend, there’s a lot having Joomla can do for your business’s website.
Drupal is sort of the big daddy of Content Management Systems. It has pretty much every function imaginable when it comes to developing websites. Given that, it can be pretty daunting for the average person to use, which is why its considered the developers CMS.
