Content Management System (CMS)
The content management system you choose can really make a huge difference in how much time you spend keeping a site updated and maintained. One of the major advantages of Smarter Websites CMS is that it simplifies the updating and management of your website. With Smarter Websites, content changes can be made quickly and easily in a matter of minutes.
Web designers and developers are very good at using web-based applications and pretty much anything else computer-related. A lot of our end-users, on the other hand, probably aren’t. This is where designing with Smarter Websites and traditional CMS design differs. We leverage the power of HTML and CSS standards to allow you to build and design your website without having to know anything more than you already do. Even if you don’t know how to do something, we can help you with that, too!
Smarter Websites uses dedicated servers in a quality data centre with high availability and redundant internet connections for maximum speed and uptime. No additional software is required, giving you complete hosting for your site.
Domain name management
If you have an existing domain registration, we can work with you to get everything set up for Smarter Websites. If you don’t have a domain name for your organisation or you’d simply like to set up a new domain to use with Smarter Websites, we will register one for you and look after the management services and renewal process on your behalf.
A blog can provide a “voice” for your organisation that educates and informs your website visitors. Unlike traditional media, blogs are frequently updated with information and links to interesting content online. Smarter Websites blogs are easily maintained and offer a way to regularly communicate through social media. Blogs are available on all Intermediate, Pro and Custom plans.
Sending out consistent, quality newsletters to a list of your contacts is a great way to keep them in the loop about what’s happening in your organisation. Smarter Websites allows you to easily create and automate regular newsletters, maintain end-user subscriptions and will even allow you to track when your newsletters have been read!
Smarter Websites offer full training to show you how to create your site effectively, using the CMS tools we have provided. We include training as standard in all of our Smarter Websites plans when your site is first created. While our aim is to give you the knowledge to use Smarter Websites CMS effectively, we will always be available for further training should you need it.
