The customizable WordPress content management system is an absolute dream for developers, but how does it help businesses?
Logging onto a simple dashboard to update a website is obviously empowering for web designers and developers, but at a glance that same dashboard can look overwhelming for business owners and content managers. Deciphering the differences between pages and posts, categories and tags, and widgets and Wufoo™ forms can be tricky, daunting, and downright frustrating.
We strongly believe that what’s easy for us should be relatively easy for you, too.
As a result, my team has spent the past few years focusing on user-friendly navigation, both for website visitors and for content managers. Our work isn’t just about how well your website will perform, but also how easy it is for you to maintain once we hand it over to you.
How do we do that? We know we must go beyond adding icons to the visual editor and enabling rich text to widgets. We train all of our clients on how to update the various parts of the backend of their new sites. We use drag-and-drop interfaces that make updating pages quick and simple for your team, so that you can continue to add fresh content to your website in the years to come.
When it becomes easier to update content and make changes to navigation, we know you are 100% more likely to update your WordPress website. And as we all know, you need to update your site regularly to climb the search rankings and improve your position.
Our goal every time is to create a content management system that complements your business goals, and one that comes equipped with the most efficient tools to achieve those goals. Whether your team needs to be able to add images to a gallery, categories to a business blog, team members to a page, or even to create new pages, we make sure that’s all possible while building your site.
When Olympics Canada contacted us about building a website, they asked us to find an easier way to effectively and efficiently manage complex content relationships with custom WordPress development. We helped them achieve better site content management using an intuitive WordPress CMS.
Doing this isn’t a value-added perk. We see it as an obvious part of our job to create straightforward, user-friendly backend management that helps and even inspires your team to update your own website content. If your site can’t do what your team and audience needs, it’s not doing its job.
