Content Managed Systems
Websites are most effective if they’re regularly updated. Allow a site to stagnate and it will lose traffic, as you need to provide fresh information in order to keep visitors coming back. If you’re not a web wizard, however, providing new material regularly can prove time-consuming. It can be expensive too if you need to go back to the site designer for updates.
Fortunately there is a way round this, as content management systems allow you to update your own site using simple tools that anyone who can use a word processor should be able to handle. Once the site is set up by a professional designer, using a CMS means you can update your own text and images and even add new links and extra pages to keep the site fresh and up to date for your visitors.
One of the most popular content management systems today is WordPress. Installed on your host’s server, this provides a platform that’s easy to use and can be extended by the use of plug-ins to provide any extra functions you require.
Your designer will set up the initial template and menus along with any custom graphics to provide the overall look and feel of the site. Once it’s up and running, you can then take over the day-to-day management of the content yourself.
If you’re looking for WordPress design Surrey has companies such as Inventas that can set up a site for you and hand over a fully finished product that you can then manage and update in-house.
