A website is one of the best tools for attracting the attention of internet audiences and maintaining their loyalty. Creating a website using a content management system is much quicker and easier than developing one from scratch. Today we will discuss the advantages of using a content management system for creating a website. Take note!
There are a lot of content management systems on the market and, as we mentioned in one of our previous posts, two of the most popular are WordPress, used by 25% of all websites online, and Drupal.Why should you create a website using a content management system?
It's easy to implement and maintain
This is one of the main advantages. As no programming is required, all website owners can manage the maintenance of their website without having any technical knowledge. Thus, management costs are lower, less time is needed and intermediaries are not required in the creation of the website.
It is user-friendly and scalable
Most content management systems are easy to install and they are also user-friendly and intuitive, which facilitates the management of content as well as the installation of plugins. The majority of CMS are also very flexible and are ideal for any company, regardless of its size.
All content management systems offer a variety of templates, those of each management system and those obtained through the installation of plugins. When establishing a predetermined template, all the content published is created using this layout, thus ensuring coherence and usability of the website.
Each content manager offers multiple plugins, both free and paid, which extend an existing site's functionality without the need for programming; such as, for example, improvements in SEO, spam control, the creation of surveys or the addition of a new payment method for a store.
Content management systems automatically generate friendly URLs from the title of each page published. They also allow the editing of these to improve SEO ranking.
This is one of the most important functionalities of a content management system as it permits you to index your website easily. Furthermore, each content management system uses the SEO differently. WordPress, for example, has the Yoast SEO plugin, which offers a complete guide to the ranking of entries or pages of a website.
Easy user interaction
Thanks to functionalities added by the plugins of each content management system, user interaction is encouraged, making it easy to share the entries in a blog on social networks, leave comments or subscribe to a newsletter with a single click.
Besides the frequent security updates for all CMS, the majority of these are supported by a community of programmers that quickly detect and correct any security errors.
In other words, their versatility when publishing and managing the contents of a website and their adaptability to any type of business gives Content Management Systems added value against other more costly options. Do you know any other advantages?
