What's a CMS?

   
   

A content management system (CMS) is software that makes it easy for non-techies to organise and manage web content.

   
   

Nowadays, thanks to the advent of WYSIWYG editors (What You See Is What You Get) and content management systems, you don't need a degree in computer science to update a site. If you can successfully send an email you can update a web page.

   
   

A CMS is an enormous boost to the small business or organisation that doesn't have a massive tech budget.

   
   

It simplifies the process and puts the website back in the hands of content creators, allowing you to spend more time on what really matters - your content.

For a lot of companies today the Internet is rapidly becoming a major source of new business leads.

Whereas in the past a static website may have been more than adequate as an initial Internet presence, today with many business owners wanting to more actively communicate with their website visitors, the desire to be able to easily add, modify and generally take far more day to day control of the content on their site has never been greater.

Without the necessary web design skills, taking such control necessitates the need for a website based around a backend database driven “Content Management System”. In the past such sites have been extremely expensive to commission and have generally been outside the financial reach of many a new or small business.

This is changing!

Today, through harnessing the power of the open source WordPress backend content management system, websites with full content control are available at prices that a few years back would have seemed totally unobtainable!

WordPress

For many, say the word “WordPress” and they think of a Weblog – Blog.

Yes, it is true, in 2003 WordPress started out as a blogging platform, but since then it has considerably extended its feature set. Today, set up in the right way, it can be used to deliver fully content managed professional business websites where you can take control of your own website and easily make changes to its content online through a web browser.

You can create new pages, rearrange the order of pages, write and format text and insert images and video clips.

Your website can grow as your business grows.

With WordPress you will never have to pay us as your web designer to do normal updates. You are in total control, allowing you to ensure your site reflects the ever changing needs and requirements of your business and target website audience.

Want a Blog? You can have it. If not, no problem it’s always there if you need it in the future.

Want an Online eCommerce Shop facility? This can be relatively inexpensively added either at the design stage or alternatively as a later stage add-on to your WordPress site.

SIUPS and WordPress - a winning combination

At SIUPS we specialise in harnessing the power of WordPress for the cost conscious smaller business / organisation.

Our approach is to keep it clean, keep it simple and do not seek, at the expense of the client, to reinvent the wheel!

While we are able to create for your site from scratch, a frontend WordPress Theme that is in structure and style 100% unique to your organisation, evidence suggests that for most businesses (small or large) this is not really required. Where possible, we prefer to take from our ever growing library of proven standard designs, an existing templated theme and tailor it precisely to your business needs and corporate style - thereby saving considerably on the design costs.

Once the design is approved and the site is created, we then pass the site over to you for content population or alternatively (as is the most preferred option with the majority of our clients) we add the initial content, leaving the ongoing updating and expansion of content to you.

Your In Control – It’s Easy!

Do not feel daunted by the thought of taking over the reins. You won’t need to send yourself on a training course to learn how to use WordPress. It’s easy to learn, being fairly intuitive. Most people figure it out themselves and are confidently updating their website within a few mere hours.

If you do struggle, as part of our WordPress hosting package, we offer a number of online video tutorials and other learning resources that show you how to easily and quickly get up to speed with the basics.

If you ever want to make an update that you are not 100% happy about doing yourself, or you find requires special presentation formatting, for a small fee, we are there to assist.

Sounds Great, but how much does it cost?
