The Future Of Web Design Is Content Management!
By: Martin Lemieux


Web development has greatly increased in popularity over the last 5 years. Many new design concepts, code
standards, and technology advances have happened in a short amount of time. With that, so has the
knowledge and demand for better, more independent and functional web design packages.


More and more we are starting to see a shift in consumer demand for the increasingly popular website
content management system.


Most website owner's are typical business entrepreneurs who don't have the time to chase down their web
design company for some minor updates that usually cost an arm and a leg. Updates for websites are
becoming more and more necessary. It's now a reality and a trend that in order to make something happen
with your website online, you need to stay on top of things and create new content to keep visitors coming
back.


As entrepreneurs, we all get new creative ideas almost every day on how to improve our products or
services. Without the ability to update our own website's, those fresh, new ideas may not become a reality
for a long time.


Website Content Management Systems Are The Future:


This is somewhat of a call out to all web design companies. If you cannot offer content management to your
clients, you may be left in the dust within a few years. The more affordable content management becomes,
the more in demand it will be. Without giving your prospects this crucial option, you may lose a great chunk
of your potential clients to the next web design company that has a fully automated system that states: "all
the consumer has to do is login and get started."


Granted, there will always be a need for web designers. That is an understatement but with the option of
content management, you can also decrease the amount of work needed to put into each project and
concentrate more on marketing your business and it's services.


Content Management Gives The Consumer The Freedom They Need!


Without giving too much freedom that may make the website look bad, there is a high demand for the ability
to update a website when needed, not when convenient. People like to have power over managing their own
company, content management gives them the freedom they need to expand on their own terms, without
extra costs.


Here Are Typical Features Of A "CMS":


- Add/remove/edit pages.
- Update content within each page.
- Add images where needed.
- Update contact information.
- Show updated listings (i.e. Real estate listings, Mortgage rates).
- Add new tips on their industry everyday (The spawn of blogging).
+ Many extra features not listed here.


Take The Real Estate Industry For Example:


In the last 2 years, "Real Estate Content Management Systems" are popping up everywhere we look. I can
recall reviewing over 50 websites that offer this style of service. And why not! Real estate agents as a whole
spend a great deal of money marketing themselves. Just in the last couple of years, real estate agents have
seen more value in marketing online than they have through regular print media. Many real estate agents I
know would rather spend $4,000 for a website rather than spend $4,000 getting listed in the local telephone
book.


In Conclusion:


If you offer web design services and have (CMS) Content Management Systems available to your visitors,
this might be the time to consider this ever growing popular service for your company. You won't regret
putting in the effort of developing your own system and marketing it, there is a shifting demand for this
ever-popular freedom online.
