Why Content Management?

Bill Bumpus's picture

Why would your union or organization want to use a content management system to administer your web site?

  • CMS lets you easily and quickly update your site from any computer on the internet
  • CMS makes it easier to have more than one "web steward" updating the site
  • CMS requires little or no knowledge of HTML or other programming languages or tools by site administrators

A word of warning is in order before we proceed, though - content management is no substitute for content! Whatever technology you use to update your web site, what's most important (and hardest) to to be sure the site is always up to date and provides information of interest to your members and supporters.
