Don’t let your web developer charge you for simple site updates!
Visitors expect fresh information when they come to your website, and the search engines require it to keep your rankings high. To keep your site appealing, content must be constantly updated, which can be both time consuming and expensive. Why pay someone else to update your site when you or someone on your staff can do it? A solid Content Management System (CMS) lets anyone with password clearance make changes to your website, giving you full control of the information the visitors to your website have access to.
VIA Studio advocates a modern, open source CMS such as WordPress for updating site content. Why? Three reasons of particular interest to our clients:
WordPress, in particular, is a joy to work with from a user perspective.
- Security and Stability:
An Open Source CMS is maintained by a community of hundreds, not a small company of a few. Your website is inherently more secure and stable.
No web developer should claim ownership of your website. The licensing requirements of Open Source give you, not your web developer, ownership of your site.
Our CMS’s of choice can be programmed to allow tiered permission status and version tracking and is fast and very easy to learn. No programming experience is necessary, and we supply the training. Use content management software to:
- Put up press releases
- Create and change poll information
- Update calendar information
- Insert or update photos
- Change web page content
- Improve SEO
