Many of my clients are either just beginning and without any website at all, or simply looking to renew their existing website. They are looking for a structure for their website that they will be able to use as a business front, and a foundation to build up from.
These clients are usually thinking about Color Schemes, logo usage, Social Network links, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Email contact pages, shopping carts, credit card payment methods (just to name a few) and of course – a beautiful layout with some eye catching functionality or animation.
Mostly, clients have seen some website(s) that have features or a look that they like, and want their website to be similar or to have the same functionality as these other websites they have seen. Quite often, after first talking about layout, color and other basic needs, the very next thing they ask me is…
“Will I be able to update my Website myself? Or, will I have to hire someone like you every time I want something changed?”
My response is typically, “Have you heard of WordPress?”
As clients vary, so too does their understanding of the Internet. Some clients will ask me about Content Management Systems or use the acronym “CMS“. And most have the understanding that a CMS means, they can edit their own website content.
It seems clear – the understanding about a CMS is – If you want to edit a few basic things on your website, text, pictures etc. You can just go ahead and do it, without having to hire a technical person each time. Obviously, not having to pay money to simply change a line of text on your own website is a good idea, and frankly, why would you need a computer programmer to do that?
Computers, and computer programmers are supposed to make our lives easier, not more expensive and time consuming.
Enter the CMS.
So, I guess a bunch of programmers got together and said, “Hey, let’s make it easy for someone to change the text on their website.” After a few years and many bumps on that road, you now have some very solid, well tested and field proven Content Management Systems – like WordPress for example.
There are many CMS’s, and I have used, programmed, installed, tweaked, debugged and customized a number of them. I am not knocking or disapproving of any other CMS’s here. I am just providing good reasons for using WordPress.

There are approximately 60, 000, 000 WordPress websites.

You have designers and developers creating layout and functionality in templates that are truly leading edge.

And by using this open source CMS – you effectively have thousands of top developers, programmers and designers all working for YOU. This is the beauty of popular open source CMS’s.
Here are just a few tips to help you decide if you need a Content Management System for your Web Business
Do I need a CMS for my website?
If you answer “Yes” to these questions, I would say it is reasonable to suggest that you use a Content Management System:
- Do you want to be able to change text and or pictures on your website yourself, or have a member of your staff do it for you?
- Do you expect to change text and or pictures relatively often?
- Do you want to “Blog” about your business? (a good way to generate traffic to your website)
Will I be able to easily use WordPress myself?
I am always straight-up with people when they ask me about Content Management Systems, and their user-friendliness. You need at least “some computer skills“. I usually make the analogy of using Microsoft Word. If you can handle creating a word document, you can edit some text or change an image on your WordPress site.
If you answer “Yes” to these questions, I would say it is reasonable to suggest that you will be able to make regular edits to your WordPress site without any problems:
- Are you or one of your staff members capable of typing and editing the text and images like on a Microsoft Word document?
- Do you think you understand that having the ability to change some text or an image via a CMS, does not give you the capability to program or change the larger structure of your website – and that would be best to hire someone for.
The gist of it is – Although there is sometimes good reason to start from scratch when building your online business website, in most cases we don’t need to re-write the wheel every time. Content Management Systems, Templates and plug- ins do provide us with a stable foundation from which to grow. Having a qualified Web programmer Developer install, configure and customize your WordPress and or CMS templates, is the fast-track to success with a CMS.
