Why Use a Content Management System?

There was once a time when websites were created in a static method where different types of code had to be introduced into each and every web page making site management an incredible nightmare. All this various code – HTML, JavaScript, Flash and more – made it quite difficult for a variety of different web servers to identify and handle correctly. Most web geeks took the time to learn all the different hand coding techniques and, hopefully, added these to their stockpile of tricks and skills that would go a long way toward fattening their pockets. But, the introduction of a Content Management System (CMS) can help reduce the need for keeping webmasters off the payroll.

CMS after the Design

Content Management Systems are now all the rage because they allow for an affordable site-owner based opportunity to conduct periodic updates and maintenance after design is completed and the site goes live. Before the use of Content Management Systems, labor intensive websites were expensive to maintain with either the site owner having to learn how to handle the necessary tasks or employ someone who had the skill and knowledge of the software in order to conduct the needed maintenance and updates.

How It Works

A Content Management System has at the core of its employment a database where the users store content – both copy and images – available for placement on a website. Every page on the site is stored as simple text. Then the system will convert the simple text into the appropriate HTML and JavaScript whenever called up for by site visitors that land on a page. The CMS also allows for a number of other features such as interactive event calendars, password-protected logins, news feeds, blogs, photo galleries, chat rooms and much more.

Owners of older websites experiencing a lot of challenges managing a static situation may believe it is now time to upgrade to a website that can be controlled through use of a Content Management System.

Featured Web Design client- 302 Automotive

I met Ivan of 302Automotive.com in 2007. In business since 1998, Ivan understood the importance of having a website for his auto detailing business, but didn’t know the first step in creating a strong web presence.

Immediately, Ivan and I hit it off.  I shared his passion for running his business and his deep appreciation for Life, God and Family.  From starting business in his mother’s driveway to moving into a business complex soon after, Ivan never lost sight of his vision of becoming Delaware’s premier auto detail shop.

Today, 302Automotive.com has been in business for 12 years. Ivan’s passion and faith are as strong as ever–in fact, Ivan has recently launched a new Internet Talk Show- The Wize and Big Ive show and has ventured into selling Rims and Tires online.
