Greetings! REM Web Solutions is pleased to present you with the 21st issue of [email protected], our quarterly online newsletter. The purpose of [email protected] is to help our subscribers maximize the effectiveness of their Web site, thus providing them with expert advice and keeping them current on trends in the Web world. [email protected] also includes a client profile, which we feel is a great way to introduce some of the fantastic clients that we work with to all of our subscribers.
In this issue, we would like to address the simple questions: what is a content management system? and why is it such an asset to your company?
A content management system, (or CMS) is an easy-to-use software program that gives the user access to the pages of their Web site in order to add or change web page content. You can add things like text, images, links, videos clips and more! You can also add extra pages to expand your Web site past the main navigation.
Having a CMS plugged in to your Web site allows for faster updates of your Web pages. No more waiting for a web developer to make the changes for you--which could take them a few days or even weeks!
With a CMS, you do not need to have HTML programming language skills. The HTML code runs "behind the scenes" so to speak-- you do not need to know how to "write code" to use a CMS. Adding content to your Web pages is as easy as typing a Word document or an email.
And finally, a CMS will pay for itself very quickly and its ROI is well worth the initial cost. If you added up all the costs of paying a Web developer to make changes to your site over one year, they would most likely add up to the cost of a CMS. Usually, the cost of a CMS is a one-time fee. Our CMS, [email protected], is an example of this. There are no additional fees for future license upgrades, etc. The only ongoing fee is Web hosting which you would pay for no matter what company hosts your Web site. So, you now have a better understanding of what a CMS is and how cost effective they are for your business!
