What is a Content Management System (or CMS)?

CMS stands for Content Management System. A content management system allows the user (website owner/administrator) the ability to log into the back end of their website with a unique username and password. Once logged in the user can make changes to the website content area.

What are the benefits of a CMS?

  • The ability to make changes to your content as you please. For example, posting blogs, updating contact information, creating additional pages or special pages, adding products, plus loads more reasons. And it’s easy to do. You don’t have to be technically minded to be able to use a CMS.

  • Keeping information fresh and up to date is something that search engines love. So to be able to do that quickly and easily without having to employ a webmaster is a must for any business.

  • Keeping your content up to date can be done by any approved user in your business.

  • Changing the content won’t interfere with the design on your website, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally changing the design.
