[ Business]

Web development has greatly increased in popularity over the last 5 years. Many new design concepts, code standards, and technology advances have happened in a short amount of time. With that, so has the knowledge and demand for better, more independent and functional web design packages.

More and more we are starting to see a shift in consumer demand for the increasingly popular website content management system.

Most website owner’s are typical business entrepreneurs who don’t have the time to chase down their web design company for some minor updates that usually cost an arm and a leg. Updates for websites are becoming more and more necessary. It’s now a reality and a trend that in order to make something happen with your website online, you need to stay on top of things and create new content to keep visitors coming back.

As entrepreneurs, we all get new creative ideas almost every day on how to improve our products or services. Without the ability to update our own website’s, those fresh, new ideas may not become a reality for a long time.

Website Content Management Systems Are The Future:

This is somewhat of a call out to all web design companies. If you cannot offer content management to your clients, you may be left in the dust within a few years. The more affordable content management becomes, the more in demand it will be. Without giving your prospects this crucial option, you may lose a great chunk of your potential clients to the next web design company that has a fully automated system that states: “all the consumer has to do is login and get started.”

Granted, there will always be a need for web designers. That is an understatement but with the option of content management, you can also decrease the amount of work needed to put into each project and concentrate more on marketing your business and it’s services.

Content Management Gives The Consumer The Freedom They Need!

Without giving too much freedom that may make the website look bad, there is a high demand for the ability to update a website when needed, not when convenient. People like to have power over managing their own company, content management gives them the freedom they need to expand on their own terms, without extra costs.

Here Are Typical Features Of A “CMS”:

– Add/remove/edit pages.

– Update content within each page.

– Add images where needed.

– Update contact information.

– Show updated listings (i.e. Real estate listings, Mortgage rates).

– Add new tips on their industry everyday (The spawn of blogging).

+ Many extra features not listed here.

Take The Real Estate Industry For Example:

In the last 2 years, “Real Estate Content Management Systems” are popping up everywhere we look. I can recall reviewing over 50 websites that offer this style of service. And why not! Real estate agents as a whole spend a great deal of money marketing themselves. Just in the last couple of years, real estate agents have seen more value in marketing online than they have through regular print media. Many real estate agents I know would rather spend $4,000 for a website rather than spend $4,000 getting listed in the local telephone book.

In Conclusion:

If you offer web design services and have (CMS) Content Management Systems available to your visitors, this might be the time to consider this ever growing popular service for your company. You won’t regret putting in the effort of developing your own system and marketing it, there is a shifting demand for this ever-popular freedom online.

    Yes, CMS systems will be key in the future. They are key now to many companies already! There are many open source solutions but no open source silver bullet yet.

    The problem is that it’s almost impossible to create fool proof content management systems that users with different levels of HTML aptitude can update without creating a mess.

    Guest above should learn to spell "possessive" before criticizing anyone for a typo.

    I think my favorite CMS is probably WordPress, but Drupal takes a close second. Thanks for the write up.
