Should I Use A CMS to Build My Site?

Ashworth Creative says, “YES!”

We’re big fans of websites built upon a CMS – it’s one of the easiest and most versatile ways to manage a website, and if you’re wondering whether you should use a CMS to build and/or manage your website, we’d have to say (quite loudly and resoundingly) YES! Read on to see why we’re big believers in CMS.

CMS or Content Management Systems are a great way to manage your website

What Does CMS Mean?

CMS is an acronym that stands for Content Management System. A content management system is a platform that enables users to add, edit, store and publish content, or information on a website.

4 Reasons to Build Your Website On a CMS

1) No coding knowledge needed. Can you use Microsoft Word? Then you can easily use a content management system. Updating information on your website with a CMS is as simple as typing in the text you’d like to have appear and clicking a button.

2) Flexibility – with a CMS, you’re able to update your website as often as you like. You’ll never be held hostage to a development company for simple changes to text and images.

3) SEO Friendly – SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a MAJOR component of a successful website. Content Management Systems are structurally built with SEO best practices in mind. Combine the structural advantages to the ability to add fresh content at whim, and you’ve got an SEO powerhouse.

4) Built for the future – Unlike sites built on platforms that can become obsolete fairly quickly, the software that powers the CMS updates frequently to ensure complete compatibility to the latest changes.
