A web design has to be up-to-date to be effective. So that you don't have to keep calling us every time you want to make small website design changes during your web design process, we create all sites with a 'Content Management' system, and give you a FREE tutorial on how to make simple content changes to your website design yourself.
This allows authorised users access as an ‘Administrator’ level to the control panel (back-end) of the website, where changes can be made.
If you rely on a Website Designer to update your site you know the real cost of website ownership. The average professional Web Designer charges £35 - £75 per hour and will have a minimum billing unit of 1 hour. How much do you pay your staff by comparison? That's the argument for a content managed site in a nutshell.
We use Joomla, one of the world’s most popular open source CMS (content management systems). With millions of websites running on Joomla, the software is used by individuals, small & medium-sized businesses, and large organizations worldwide to easily create & build a variety of websites & web-enabled applications. Joomla gives you the tools and power to build standard sites, directories, intranets, social networks, shopping carts, and so much more...
A website Content Management System puts you in control.
A website with a website content management system is a website you can control and update yourself. Better still, you can delegate the updates to a member of your team! Taking control is a liberating experience. Suddenly your website is always up-to-date, always evolving and always fresh. It is now a useful and cost-effective communications tool for you and your customers. With our award winning open source website content management system website, you can give control of your most valuable marketing asset to the people who need to communicate with your customers - not people who charge you £75 per hour and take days or weeks to make changes.
On delivery of the web design project, we will give a tutorial to your named authorised users as part of the service for website update using the ‘WYSIWYG’ editor via the browser (we can provide training of the CMS on-site at your choice of location). The authorised users will be able to:
a) add, edit or delete any product listing/ prices
b) add/ edit/ remove categories, manufacturers, customers
b) add, edit or delete content, contact details, images within the content area
c) edit and publish their promotional offer/ coupon/ discounted code etc
Alternatively, for a modest fee we can run your site for you.
