CMS stands for Content Management System. We build content managed websites using Expression Engine mainly but also build sites using WordPress. These systems provide a control panel that allows you to update and manage the content through a browser. The ability to manage content is a critical need for small businesses to be successful online.
According to Wikipedia… A web content management system (web CMS) is a bundled or stand-alone application to create, manage, store and deploy content on Web pages. Web content includes text and embedded graphics, photos, video, audio, and code (e.g., for applications) that displays content or interacts with the user. A web CMS may catalog and index content, select or assemble content at runtime, or deliver content to specific visitors in a requested way, such as other languages. Web CMSs usually allow client control over HTML-based content, files, documents, and web hosting plans based on the system depth and the niche it serves.

We get this particular question a lot. The truth is unless we know what we are building it’s hard to estimate. What we can do is work with your budget and tell you exactly what you can do within the budget. We help you prioritize so that you use your resources ideally to reach your goals.
