10 Advantages Of Content Management System
When blogging started, it was difficult for many to blog because you need to have a working knowledge of HTML and other programming languages before you can code. That has become a thing of the past with the advent of WordPress and Blogger and other content management applications. In this article, I want to talk about some of the advantages of a Content Management System. Follow me as we are going to look at that in this article.
What is Content Management System…
A content management system is a system that is used to manage the content of a website. This is defined as the process of moving the web content to all phases onto the production site. To effectively use a content management system, we need to make use of Content Management Applications.
Content Management Application
Content Management Applications allows the content manager or author, who may not know HTML to manage the creation, modification and removal of the content from a website without the expertise of a webmaster.
Content Delivery Application
Content Delivery Application uses Content Management Application information and compiles that information for updating the website.
Also, you need to know that Content Management System can also provide tools for one to one marketing. They will allow the content developers to use tools that are available in the application to reach out to prospective customers with products and services that are likely to be interested in.
#1 Small commitment
I don’t know if you have ever created a website? I need to ask how long it takes you to develop that website or post. If you check a singular post on the website and you try to look at the programming version of that post, then you will appreciate what WordPress has done for you. I have seen a time that I have spent less than 45minutes creating a post. If I have had to write those posts in HTML, I would have spent several days creating those posts. It is content management that makes it easier.
Also, Content Management System also provides simple desktop tools that allow more people to contribute to your content. With just clicking of a few buttons, it is now relatively easy for more authors to contribute to your website. It is also very easy for your users to share your content. There is also a provision of tools that allow enthusiastic readers to share your content as well.
#3 Well defined approval process
Also, content management systems and applications always have a well-defined approval process for content. It is not all contents that are posted automatically. You can define and dictate what happens to each of the contents that you have posted on your website. You also have the power to delete any content it does not longer serve any purpose.
#4 Large contributors
There are times that you may have many authors contributing to a blog or website. Without a Content Management System, it will be difficult to manage those content effectively. A good content management system will allow you to manage content from multiple authors such that the editing of content from a particular author will not affect other blog authors.
#5 Blog look
Also, a content management system and application will allow you to change the look and feel of a website at once without having to go from one page to another page. This will allow to collectively add new features to the design of a website through the use of plugins and other elements without going to the source code of the website.
#6 Consistent feel
As your blog or website grows, there are some elements on the websites that you will have to adjust in order to continue to meet the need of your growing audience. Having a good Content Management System at your disposal will allow you to have a look and feel on the website that are consistent with the brand image of the entire enterprise. This will allow you to maintain your brand reputation without breaking the bank.
#7 User experience
Due to the formidable marketing tools that come with the content management system, you will be able to gauge your user experience and determine how users will react to any of the changes that you are trying to make on your website. It will allow you to change one element at a time and determine how that change(s) will affect your users. This will help you to determine whether such changes should be made permanent or not.
Also, CMS will also contribute to content reusability. It will really assist the website owner to use old content for present-day marketing efforts. Let’s say that scenario has changed after you last used that content, CMS will allow you to re-use and edit that content in order to direct them towards new marketing goals.
