• Need to keep your website up to date?
  • Want to rank higher in the search engines?
  • Don’t want to pay your web designer for every tiny change to your site?

Yes?

A CMS can do all this and more and its as easy to use as word processor.

A CMS, or content management system, is a web based tool that allows you to edit your website content, add new pages, delete pages, change menu items and structure, add images, photos and video and optimise your site for the search engines. Once you have a CMS you’ll be able to do all this and much more, all without the help of your web developer and without any hourly costs.

For most small businesses, a CMS Conversion will cost around $500.

Your Website Needs to be Up to Date

Everyone relies a lot more on the internet today – you know yourself, if you’re looking for XYZ product or a particular type of service provider the first place you probably head to is Google. Because of this, its important your website content is as up to date as possible and if you don’t have a content management system or CMS you’re going to have to pay your web designer an hourly rate to make even the smallest change. You know this means its likely that you’ll either not make that change or it will get put off for a long time.

Your existing website can be Converted to a CMS

In most cases your website can be converted to a CMS website with relative ease, a job performed by a web developer. Once setup you’ll be able to make as many changes to your site as you like from any computer with a web browser and internet connection.

Our CMS conversion services start from $495+GST including one year of web hosting and the process takes approximately 1-2 weeks from commencement to completion. For more information email us or call us during business hours.

With a CMS in place, adding a new page or updating some details on your site is as simple as using a Word Processor.

Ranking Higher in the Search Engines with a CMS

There are approximately 200 factors the search engines use to determine how to rank search results. Some of these factors like page titles, web addresses and meta descriptions are given much more weighting than others. These are larger technical non-visible elements of your site and without a CMS you’re going to have to learn HTML code to modify them.

A CMS website is much more search engine friendly than a standalone website as it has search engine optimisation (SEO) features built in AND gives you direct access and the ability to edit many SEO fields directly, without needing any HTML or coding knowledge.

WordPress is our preferred CMS platform

WordPress started off as a blogging platform and has now evolved to become one of the most powerful CMS platforms available today. There are thousands of CMS platforms available but WordPress is by far our favourite and preferred platform. For starters it powers over 13% of all websites on the internet and 55% of all websites that actually have a CMS – its also very secure, fast, extremely search engine friendly and with hundreds of detailed training videos guiding that guide you through every aspect of the software – from basic beginner steps to advanced features.

WordPress CMS Website Examples

WordPress as a CMS platform (wordpress.org) is often confused with WordPress.com, the free WordPress blogging platform and often mistakenly discounted for use as a business CMS for that reason.

Here’s some great examples of business websites powered by WordPress CMS:
