The Beauty of Content Management Systems
Don’t you wish that you, the owner of an IT company or small business, could easily update your site and add new information about your products and services, without the frustrating hassle of needing to learn how to write code or engineer the Gutenberg press?
You shouldn’t have to have an engineering degree from Stanford in order to put a comma into a sentence, that’s on your website.
Or maybe you’ve been handcuffed by your web developer so they, not you, need to make every update on your site, which in the end costs you thousands of dollars, all the while knowing that you could’ve completed this simple task on your own.
Or perhaps you’re tired of waiting days upon days for your web developer to add a link, or update your website’s blog, only to be charged a ridiculous amount of cash just to change an image, even though it takes mere minutes?
If you nodded your head to any of these mild annoyances, then what you need is an easy process of refining your website, which is the essence of a good Content Management System (aka CMS).
