|Keeping your content current is the most critical factor to a successful website...|
thinking about building a website, but you don't have the skills to maintain
a site using manual tools such as Dreamweaver™
Or perhaps you already have a website. It has grown over time, and while it's still useful much of the content is out-of-date or inaccurate. It's hard to find things, updating the site is complex, and the appearance is becoming dated. Worse yet, you've lost track of all the pages on the site, and the updates are piling up in your webmaster's in-box.
If this sounds grim, you are not alone. In fact, it's the natural by-product of maintaining a site the traditional, manual way.
Large corporations solve this problem through the use of a Content Management System (CMS). A CMS supports the creation, management, distribution, publishing, and discovery of corporate information. It provides tools to create and publish their content as well as the ability to manage the structure of the site, the appearance of the published pages, and the navigation provided to the users.
A CMS can help to improve sales, increase user satisfaction, and assist in communicating with the public, but they also tend to be very expensive. So what's the alternative for a small organization on a tight budget?
Thankfully, IBIS Web Creations has an economical solution. Our answer is to provide you with an easy-to-use site, web-based maintenance environment which allows you to update your content from your office, your home, or wherever you have access to a web browser. This provides a non-technical way of updating content without having to know any HTML. Some of the maintenance functions are form-based, others use a content editor designed to work like Microsoft Word™.
By providing a simple, secure mechanism for maintaining the site, you can maintain your most time-sensitive content yourself or distribute it to members of your organization. For example, your marketing manager maintains the press release section, while your product manager keeps the catalog up to date.
All of this is provided using simple, scalable, and most of all affordable technology which we tailor to your specific needs. Feel free to contact us if you'd like further details!
