Let’s start with the basics, what is a CMS? CMS stands for Content Management System. It provides you with the capabilities to manage, publish and organise digital content; such as articles, videos and images, without any HTML knowledge.
Having a CMS is crucial for your business to stay competitive. Particularly with the increased requirement for more relevant content, to enhance your SEO and generate traffic to your website. A good CMS should provide a way for you to regularly update your website with ease, ensuring your content remains fresh and up-to-date.
Achieving these key factors is often difficult with an off-the-shelf CMS, you are limited to templated solutions in both design and functionality, running the risk of looking like everyone else. This can also be a problem when it comes to hardcoded websites because they can be inaccessible and a hassle when you need to make small changes and updates. This is why both hardcoded and off-the-shelf websites are not always viable long-term solutions for generating traffic and growing your business.
