If your website is in need of an overhaul, and your organization does not have the IT staff necessary to complete the changes, a web management service will need to be brought in.

A Content Management System, or a CMS, is the backbone of almost every dynamically updated website on the internet. CMSs separate your website’s code from its content - meaning your website’s information is handled independent of its structure. CMSs sync a web server to a database, which is where the site’s content lives.

Content management is a huge part of business for today’s websites. After a meteoric rise in the number of internet users and social media sharing over the past decade today’s businesses need to keep their website’s content fresh and up-to-date in order to attract repeat visits and interactions.

Today’s content management systems (CMSs) are more powerful and efficient than ever, allowing websites to dynamically present content to millions of interested visitors. Website content is largely controlled by a web content manager, or an administrator who creates and manages an organization’s digital materials. An effective web content manager must possess many technical and interpersonal skills as their job continuously bounces between the website’s backend and meetings with website developers, marketing teams, and executives.
