Content Management Systems

Content Management Systems in Staffordshire

In modern business the quality and relevance of your online content is critical to the success of your business.

A Content Management System (CMS for short) offers you the flexibility and freedom to quickly add, delete and edit the content of your website. You don’t need any technical skills or programming knowledge. It means you can respond to market demands instantaneously, keeping you in ultimate control of your business.

By keeping your website fresh for your customers with a Content Management System, you could enhance your findability on search engines too.

We have a variety of Content Management Systems which we have developed for companies across Staffordshire and the UK. If you’d like to explore how our Content Management Systems can empower your business, please let us know. We’ll be happy to set up a demonstration for you.

How does a Content Management System work?

First, we’ll design your website with ‘dynamic’ pages. A dynamic web page is simply a page where the content is created from a database each time the page is viewed. If you change the information in the database, the next time someone views that page it will display the new information. We’ll then set up a secure admin area that you can access from any computer that has internet access. Once logged in, you’ll be able to view, add, edit and delete the content. As you change this content it will update the database that is used to display your website’s ‘dynamic’ content – therefore updating your website.

What are the advantages to having a CMS?

Cost: The most obvious advantage is that you can change your website’s content yourself at no cost. Whether you want to add a news item, change the price of a product or advertise a special offer, a CMS allows you to make changes and modifications without having to pay for the services of a web designer.

Keep up to date: It is crucial to have current and up to date content on your website.  A CMS will ensure that you keep your web content current and relevant. It ensures your customers are always informed about what’s happening in your company in real-time, so there’s never a time lag between your company’s status, developments, products, services and offerings.

Flexibility: A CMS gives you the flexibility to build content over time.  For example, you may only have limited information at website launch, but subsequently you may need to add more content.  In this instance, a CMS is the ideal cost effective solution that allows your site to evolve with your needs.

Your website will be built with an integrated CMS that will allow you to add content as often as you like – so you can get your site up and running as quickly and easily.

Where to start?

We start by researching your company’s needs and discussing which content on your website you would like to be able to change. We’ll then custom build your CMS, in conjunction with designing your website. We use the same styles (fonts, colours, layout etc) across both the website and the CMS. This means that when you amend the content it will automatically be formatted so that it looks like it will on your website, allowing you to concentrate on the content rather than getting bogged down by the design.

How much does a Content Management System cost?

The cost of your CMS will depend on the technical complexity of your website. For example, the CMS for a five page brochure style website will  cost much less than an online shop with fully integrated secure payments and stock controls.

Hand Morgan and Owen Solicitors

As a firm of solicitors we wanted our website to have a presence online in order to generate revenue and introduce new clients and business. The brief for our website was to revamp the design which in turn would improve and increase the number of visitors and enquiries we receive. Even though we already had a website, Red Box took on board what it was that we were looking for and exceeded our expectations. Since our website went live the number of online enquiries has substantially increased. We would not hesitate to recommend Red Box as the team is highly skilled, knowledgeable, professional and experienced.
