Umbraco Content Management System

When planning to launch a new website, one thing that you will hear a lot about is a content management system, also known as a CMS.

Many organisations from small charities to large multinationals decide to use a CMS as the platform to build their websites. There are many to choose from, but the one we use is Umbraco.

Why Use a CMS?

Firstly, why all the fuss about a CMS in the first place? The main reason is that using a CMS makes managing your website easy.

We create stunning websites that look just as good as any site that has not been created using a CMS. Umbraco is good enough for Heinz and, as well as many other large brands, and it could also be ideal for your site.

Once your site is up and running, you have control. Any CMS provides this, including WordPress, but all platforms have slightly different ways of going about it.

With Umbraco websites, you can publish a new blog post or web page, change your navigation menu, add an email sign-up form, post product images, launch a downloadable document and more with great ease and without any design knowledge whatsoever.

Umbraco is Our Favourite

At CSI Media, we use Umbraco because it provides us with great freedom to create the exact sites our clients want. We know all about the others like WordPress, but this is our favourite and it allows us to provide our clients with the most benefits.

As a quick run-down of what we love about it:

  • publishing content is so easy, and you can even publish new content using Microsoft Word. Umbraco saves versions of your content so you can compare them, and publishing posts is a breeze;
  • you can provide permissions to different people in your organisation to be responsible for different sections of your site. For example, the PR department can take on the news section and the marketing department can work on the blog;
  • Umbraco websites are already optimised for your SEO activity. That means you can start building links, publishing content, and everything else involved with SEO (such as all of these techniques listed on Backlinko) as soon as your site is live;
  • it is completely free. This is something Umbraco shares with other CMSs like WordPress, but it is still worth noting;
  • there is a large community to answer your questions, provide you with advice, and solve your problems, so you are never on your own.

Beautiful Websites That Put You in Control

Umbraco allows us to create stunning websites for our clients. Because of the flexibility and power it provides, it allows us to take your image and bring it to life.

There are no limitations, and although it is very powerful, it remains incredibly simple to use. We love using it, and we create amazing websites using Umbraco every day. So get yours up and running as well and enjoy all the benefits it provides.
