CMS stands for Content Management System.
Any content that you wish to add to your site will be published through your CMS.
If I had a website without a CMS, I would be downloading a file from a server, updating the content and then re-uploading it.
This would be a difficult, tedious and draining process.
My engagement with my website would stop and my businesses best marketing tool would become a white elephant.
CMS to the rescue.
What all websites need is a powerful, intuitive CMS.
As I write this post, I am logged into my CMS and have an easy and intuitive interface that makes it simple for me to manage this post and the rest of my website.
For instance, there might be 1000 lines of code making up some image gallery functionality on your website, but all you will see in the CMS is a button called ‘Add image to gallery’.
The beauty of a CMS is that it hides the complexity of everything that’s going on behind the scenes.
Well that’s the theory.
Ultimately, the person developing the website is in charge of how complicated the CMS will be, and boy can they be complicated.
However, when integrated with skill, care and consideration for the end user, anybody using the CMS will feel empowered to create content.
In fact, it will be an enjoyable experience.
