Also known as: CMS sites, Self-managed or Self-maintained sites.
CMS is web jargon referring to Content Management Systems. A CMS website is one where you, the client, can update the content of the website yourself, without knowing any fancy code or owning extra software packages. CMS websites can built on a variety of frameworks, the most popular and user-friendly being the Open-source system: WordPress.
When should I consider using a CMS?
1. If your site requires frequent updates to images or text content
2. If your site carries large amounts of content
3. If you want to update and maintain your site yourself
4. If you want other people to contribute to your site
Advantages of CMS Web Design
CMS websites allow for quick access to content changes and allow your website to grow as needed. You can add new sections to your website, new pages, menu items, galleries and blog posts as your business and client-base expands.
Ask for Open-source
Most CMS websites run on a software framework that connects to a database and provides an administration area for the website owner to login and make updates through. When considering a framework for your new CMS website, Quikclicks strongly recommends using Open-source platforms, such as WordPress. As opposed to proprietary frameworks, there are no initial or on-going licence fees to use Open-source frameworks. As a website owner this not only saves you indefinite on-going costs, but also ensures you are not “tied-down” to one Web Design company and are instead free to move your website to another company should the need ever arise. Open-source frameworks are so popular these days that many third-party developers have created hundreds of additional plugins to enhance the functionality of the website. These range from Social Media plugins, SEO and performance plugins, Image and Video gallery plugins and more, often available for free or at minimal cost. The result is a very flexible, scalable solution which will future-proof your new website as much as possible.
Mobile-Friendly and Responsive Web Design
With an increasing percentage of users researching services and purchasing products from Tablets and mobile phone, a key focus of any online business should be to deliver the best possible browsing experience at all times and on all devices. Having a mobile-friendly website is no longer an optional extra, but now a crucial, core ingredient in online marketing strategy and business success.
