What is a content management system (CMS) and why should I have one?

A content management system (CMS) is a platform which makes it easier to update and manage the content on your website without the help of a professional. Most smaller businesses have one because they are so easy to use and don’t necessarily have the budget to always pay someone when updates are needed. Without CMS you’d be expected to fork out, even if you only want to change your telephone number, this makes CMS the cost effective decision.

Not only is CMS great for the above reasons, but it also makes SEO painless. You can easily complete it yourself and get yourself ranking higher on Google without having to pay an expert.

The most popular CMS by far is WordPress, boasting over 75 million websites worldwide, top companies use it too. It actually powers 1/4 of the websites on the internet. So if thats not a good enough reason to use them then i’m not sure what is.

Starting up a business is exciting, the thought of finally being able to work for yourself can be many peoples dreams. 90% of businesses unfortunately end in failure, therefore ensuring you’ve it right online makes you one step closer to being in the 10% who succeed.

Good Luck from the team at Bibble Studio!
