CMS – Picture the scene . . . You currently have a website for your hairdressing business. All of a sudden, you choose to do a colour sale and need to update your website to help promote this offer. You contact your current website designers; they have a 4 day turnaround on website amendments, your website does not come with a CMS and due to the turnaround period you loose out of 4 days promotion via your website. This is where the power of a CMS could have come into play.

You probably get contacted on a regular basis about your website, does it need updating? Does it need a redesign? How is it currently working for you? And most importantly does your current website have a CMS? Not all website companies really explain the power of CMS and what it actually stands for.

CMS stands for Content Management System; it is a highly powerful tool that works alongside your website. It gives you the ability to go into your website and amend the content, text, graphics and sometimes even lets you add additional pages into your current website for free. You take control over the messages you want to promote for your business, without having to go through the hassle of contacting your designer and asking them to do it for you.

Here at Ask Web Design all of our websites come with a CMS by default. We do not use jargon that is hard to understand and we try to make your website needs as straightforward and as user friendly as possible.
