CMS Web Development Services
Although CMS is easier to pick up than coding, it’s still a time-consuming task that takes away time you could be using developing and taking care of your business.
Although CMS isn’t as complicated as traditional code-based web development, it’s important to remember that web design, no matter what method you use to do it, is still a process in design, and customer psychology. If you don’t understand what your audience likes about their favourite websites, then it’s unlikely you’ll be able to effectively utilise any of the CMS platforms out there to effectively promote and run your business.
Not only this but even with CMS platforms, there is a lot of jargon to work through, and if you don’t understand it you may end up picking a CMS that doesn’t work the way you like it to. Wix and WordPress are both examples of popular CMS applications, however, they work extremely differently to each other.
Therefore, people often hire marketing agencies to handle this aspect of their business for them. Most marketing agencies specialise in or are even partners of a CMS web development company, or even a few, meaning they know all the ins and outs of using that CMS. This is the difference between a website that feels like a primary school PowerPoint presentation and a website that draws in audiences and gets clients.
If this is the case then, why bother with CMS at all? Why not get a programmer to build the site from scratch?
This is a relatively simple question to answer, working with CMS is inherently cheaper to use than programming. Remember the painting analogy, programming is starting from square 1, CMS you just need to put things in the right place. This means that paying a programmer to code a website for you from nothing, and then paying for additional hosting services on top of that makes a big fee. Whereas, if you hire a CMS web development company they’re working with base elements and making tweaks, and fair few CMS platforms also offer hosting services at a minimal extra cost. Code-quality product, with a severely lowered fee. We call that a win-win.
