WordPress Content Management System
A Content Management System (CMS) takes a lot of the hard work out of looking after your website. The CMS makes the menus have the right links. It ensures that the pages have a consistent look and feel, so that your brand integrity is maintained. It makes updating the website easy for someone without web design skills.
The last point is very important. As well as liking fast websites, search engines like frequently updated websites. That is because if a website is frequently updated, it is more likely to have up-to-date and relevant information.
A CMS provides an editing interface which is much easier to master than web design. Someone who can create and edit a Word document can pick up WordPress quickly. If the website is easy to update, it more likely to be updated and that means better content and more visitors.
