A few thoughts about content management.

At the end of the day, content management will make or break your site.
Here are 10 things we believe are crucial to success.

A site will only be updated if the CMS is easy to use.

So many content management systems are hard to use, which means the sites are rarely – if ever – updated. And that's the worst thing that can happen.

A CMS should provide long-term value for the client.

Robust websites bring users back. So smart, usable CMS is crucial to the relevance of your brand. The CMS we build makes updating fast and easy.

A CMS should respect the integrity of the design.

When content is separated from graphic assets, there's less chance that an edit will break something. We build distinct zones where content can be edited.

Not all content is the same.

Smart CMS supports many types of content. Introductions. Product listings. Long-form content. Calls to action. Each serves a unique purpose and requires identified guidelines.

Updating your site shouldn't be scary.

It's a very real issue: Too many system admins avoid updating content for fear of breaking the site. Our fool-proof CMS encourages regular updates.

A CMS should be forward-thinking.

Your site will grow. Your CMS should be able to grow with it. We help you map out future needs, so the site can scale and evolve as you need it to.

One size CMS does not fit all.

If your site isn't a blog, why would you consider a blogging platform? The CMS should adapt to your content, not the other way around.

You shouldn't have to rely on plug-ins for core functionality.

True, there's an open-source plug-in for everything. But what about updates? Bugs? Or if they fail to meet your specific need?

Security should be a priority, not an afterthought.

Your CMS should have built-in mechanisms for keeping your site secure. You shouldn't have to reply on third-party plug-ins to do the job.

Robust CMS shouldn't cost a fortune.

Many packaged or licensed CMS solutions cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The vast majority are overkill in terms of price, complexity, and delivery.
