Whether you need to create a new website or redesign your current website, you need a content management system (SMK) to maintain and update your digital content. It is important to choose the right CMS that best suits your needs, because after your initial design, there is a good chance that it will be your most commonly used web linking tool. But how to choose?
Businesses can choose from many types of CMS systems. Most of them are more affordable template platforms, in addition to custom solutions that offer unique benefits. Your decision will ultimately be based on which system best suits your needs.
Why Use a CMS?
If you were a small company and wanted to stay small, I wouldn’t tell you to use a custom CMS. In fact I would be careful to recommend some custom systems, not to mention a system created specifically for one website. This is because you can pay much more than you can pay for a custom CMS. In addition you would pay to reinvent the wheel for all the features of the brochure equipment.
5 Advantages of a custom CMS
So why use a custom CMS? First of all, because it is designed to take into account all the specific individual needs of your business. A custom website can be much more effective if you want to change this or that feature, such as how people comment on your posts or how to switch pages.
Website loads faster
One of the main advantages of creating a custom website from scratch CMS is to speed up your website. Custom CMS loads faster because the original background program code is optimized to do just what is needed, and not a little more.
In contrast, a CMS made with a website builder depends on add-ons, some of which may be useless, and some important ones are affecting from them, such as WooCommercepopup cart. Although your site is still slowing down (just in case), you may never need them (you don’t need them).
If you add a CMS to your custom HTML website, you won’t be bothered by updates from the provider. Sometimes such reliance on a third party can cost you customers, as a surprise update can simply confuse you, as often happens with updates.
Website developers, such as WordPress or Wix, are open source platforms. Thus, they are less protected than the measured CMS. Your own customers are more likely to be protected if they use software that uses the latest and most effective security protocols. Statistically, a WordPress website is much easier to hack than one that uses a custom CMS.
With WordPress and Wix, or other less popular CMS drag-and-drop solutions, all the websites that use them are similar and there are few differences. Generally they offer you a similar website structure and CMS website project. It is difficult to stand out with such a website and your company should be as original as possible to attract customers. The uniqueness of your website sets you apart from the competition. If you’re “just another provider” or if you’re offering “something special,” you’re less likely to be with your company.
If you hire a development team to provide you with your CMS system, you will also receive full-time technical support. They can be very useful even after the project is over and already in use. Consider it a warranty card with a custom CMS.
Conversely, when using Website Builder, you only have a FAQ section or a slow conversation (maybe even a conversation) that will never help you deal with timely issues. It’s just that webmasters offer services to thousands of small-scale, low-budget business projects and can’t contact everyone in person.
Again, the real secret to business success is one in a million. It also means that your requirements are unique and need unique solutions. And a simple FAQ section or conversation can’t handle that.
Things to consider
As you might expect, a website built to a custom CMS costs significantly more than a WordPress website. Creating a custom SMC requires an experienced professional with advanced skills, so you can pay significantly more for a custom website than for a WordPress site. You need to decide how much you want to invest in your website.
A custom solution requires a longer delivery time for development. A custom CMS requires a huge investment of time and, if you pay the developer, the money to build; However, creating a WordPress website takes longer.
Most CMS solutions include monthly hosting and support, which means you need to use whatever provider your designer chooses.
Add-ons and Plugins
Unlike WordPress, all additional tools need to be built to fit a custom design that only your developer can support, or you have to pay another development team to learn how to customize it.
SEO and CMS selection
Search engine optimization is a big part of a website’s success, so it may be important to consider your SEO strategy before choosing SMC. Some CMSs are built with certain URL structures, provide some plugins, and may be suitable for one type of website, but may not handle other types of websites (such as content or an e-commerce website).
There are many WordPress SEO plugins and we have found that WordPress works quite well for a content website. Magento, which is an e-commerce shopping cart and SMK with which we work very hard. Magento SEO campaigns often require a lot of “improvement” of core code structures and rewriting of the CMS build base. Be sure to find out if the chosen SMK allows you to implement an SEO strategy for you or your SEO company.
Website builders like WordPress or Wix can be good if you have something like a travel blog or a small budget on a low budget. However, if you have a larger business and want to gain a competitive advantage, the best option is to hire a development team and have them tailor a project to suit your individual needs.
This will attract more customers to your site, better security and faster loading. It’s also true that you get full support from your development team, as they provide maintenance even after release.
