Having the ability to maintain the content of your own website is a great way for you to take control of your own web marketing. With WordPress or our own AshWebCMS, we can make managing a website an easy task even for the technically illiterate.
Do I need a Content Management System?
A CMS is not necessary for everyone, but anyone can use it. If you:
- Want to make updates myself, on your own time
- Need website updates several times a month
- Want to maintain a blog
…then a CMS is a likely a great option for you.
We have played with many CMS available both free, open-source and paid. One of the primary reasons we like WordPress is because of it’s huge community which improves the core functionality very quickly. They also provide a large plugin directory which extends the possibilities of WordPress with features like calendar systems, advanced contact forms and so much more. We have yet to run into a project that couldn’t be done in WordPress. Our very own website is powered by WordPress.
Also important is the ease-of-use in the administration area for our clients. We don’t want to hand over a website for you to maintain that requires a BS degree in Computer Science or even much training at all. Many of our clients don’t require any help from us to learn how to manage their website content with WordPress.
