Website Content Management & Web Software - Sound advice on keeping your website updated

Once your website is designed and live, it is important that you keep it updated so that your customers are viewing the correct information and so that the search engines are kept happy, but would you be able to do this on your own?

Most web designers would consult you about the maintenance of your website and you have two options, either you do it yourself or you pay somebody else to do it for you.

If you have experience using web software such as Adobe Dreamweaver or Contribute then you may be more than capable of managing the updates yourself, if you’re not confident with such software then you could ask your web design company to develop something called a ‘Content Management System’, abbreviated to CMS. CMS is a structured system that allows you to add, amend or delete specific text, images or pages within a website and is usually quite simple to operate, your web design company should also offer some form of training to accompany the system. This option will save you money in the long run and means that you can update your website as much as you like without relying on somebody else to do it for you, and you can do it at your convenience.

Alternatively, you could pay somebody else to update your website for you and they will probably charge a standard fee and apply limits on how much or how often they will update the site. If you feel that this option is best for your business, you should consult your web design company and ask for a written quotation and a detailed specification of what is included in the service.
