Content management should be as easy as sending an e-mail
Managing content on your website has been a challenging problem ever since web sites have been around (See: History of the Internet). But, as website owners strive to keep their website current and use their website as a primary means of delivering fresh, relevant content to their visitors, content management becomes a mission critical issue.
The primary issue is that web owners need the ability to quickly and efficiently add, change, or maintain content on their website without having to have technical HTML skills or relying on a designated web designer or developer.
A web owner has the following choices:
- Dictate content management changes to a web developer
- Learn HTML and make the changes yourself
- Buy a “user-friendly” 3rd party CMS like Adobe Contribute or Microsoft Front Page
- Build and integrate an organic CMS into your website
- Avoid making frequent changes to your website
We prefer to empower our clients to manage their own content quickly, easily and at their convenience – not ours. For this reason, we choose option 4 – build and integrate an organic CMS into your website.
inQbation™ strives to build content management systems into their websites as an organic component or feature of the website. We believe that frequently updated web content needs to be managed by the owner of the website using simple, secure, and easy-to-use tools. Moreover, these CMS tools must have WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editing interfaces and should not require any technical HTML skills.
At inQbation, our entire website runs on WordPress (See: WordPress CMS User’s Guide). We believe that it is the most cost effective content management solutions. WordPress is a free open source software solution. It is easy to use and search engine friendly. Best of all, it has incredible functionality and you can make it look any way you want – there are virtually no design limitations.
