Content Management Based Websites
Lighthouse Media Works develops websites using a Content Management System (CMS) which is like an operating system for your website. An operating system allows you to run programs on your computer that lets you do activities ranging from accounting to video chatting with friends around the world. So too a CMS lets you run “apps” or helper programs on your website that makes it easier for you to control. This can transform your website into an ordering platform for your website, an appointment maker for a professional’s office or an online store. There are also apps that make it easy to link to social media, an important consideration in today’s world.
The real power of a CMS based website is flexibility and relative ease of use. A CMS is a combination of a database program that stores all of you content of your website and a template that tells the database how to layout the information. Your entire site can be updated by simple modifying the template. In traditional “static” site you would need to pay a web designer to update every page on a site.
It is also easy to maintain a CMS website. Because the CMS site is database driven adding content is really adding information into the database. This is done by using word processor like forms. Updating your website is as easy as updating your Facebook page. Because you don’t need to know web programming or coding you get to control you website! You don’t need to pay a monthly maintenance fee to your web developer and wait for any small change. Just do it yourself!
Lighthouse Media Works will host and develop your website to meet your needs and then train your staff how to use the system. We will always be there to help you with your site but we do not charge an ongoing fee.
