Content Managed Websites
How it works
There are many CMS applications available to users today. Some are very complex, and some are very simple to use - some better than others. I have investigated many of these systems and feel that Weebly (most user friendly) and Wordpress (self-hosted – next best user friendly) offer solid coding and support with great usability. For most of my clients, what works best is having me initially build their website and populate it, then train them in updating or adding new content. Depending on the nature of their intended site, or their business, I will recommend a CMS that suits their needs. I remain available to my clients to help, to answer questions and to optimize images for best upload and presentation for viewers, or to create graphics to give their site the punch they need. Initial services include:
Working with a CMS website has many advantages. Firstly, it is significantly less expensive than a custom site. Also, you can make changes, revisions and additions at any time, from anywhere! You will gain knowledge of how a web site works, and you will also reinforce your business-building skills by focusing your content. There are many styles to choose from so that, with the addition of custom graphics, you can be assured your site will have a unique look. And, you never have to wait for a web developer to make your changes for you - it is instant! If you want a nice, clean well organized and professional looking site, this is the method for you!
Why not just do the whole thing yourself?
CMS programs like Weebly were meant just for that purpose, but many clients find they have neither the time, skills nor graphic software to create the site they really want.
“I wanted to add to my ramblings just how beautiful and functional the site is. I’m so proud of the work that Mary has done on our behalf, it truly is a work of art, far, far beyond any of our abilities.”
