We use different CMS platforms to develop a website depending on many factors, including the customer's wishes, the size of the website, and the functionality required.
Let’s jump into the deep to know how we manage & run a project of CMS development in order to grow a business and deliver the result as clients desire.
The successful implementation of a business-based CMS requires a team of key players, including authors, editors, IT staff, and management. Hiring authors who are not willing to use tools like SWORD can hamper the success of your CMS strategy.
It provides version control and authoring workflows to keep large, global websites consistent. As your developers are not involved in the content release process, and changes to the backend can interfere with content release.
Nowadays we can see people are also getting successful online businesses using popular content management systems for ecommerce businesses as well. There are many examples of this out there. A content management system for ecommerce could be a great solution who want to start their store with less effort and freedom with SEO implementation at ease.
A CMS is an application that is used to create, manage, store & publish digital content. Companies use a content management system to websites build & manage basic functions & documents or files. Content Management System also helps you to develop strategies to produce content and increase your efficiency for their own servers.
CMS application helps to grow & develop any website over time. You can manage all your content in one place. You can also easily collaborate between teams. Moreover,CMS software enables quick and easy updates and provides templates and extensions to customize your site.
CMS is good for creating a successful website without encoding, and for simplifying website management, a CMS is essential.
Overall, CMS supports easy collaboration, helps create dynamic websites. It also enables quick updates, provides valuable tools & plugins that are needed to make a website as effective and secure as possible, and saves time and money.
In that case, CMS provides a graphical user interface (UI) tool for creating, editing and publishing web content with just a few clicks without the need to rewrite code from scratch. It gives a visual editor for the content, so anyone can update images, text, develop forms, insert intentional pop-ups and other types of content to achieve better results with your content marketing strategy.
Content Delivery Applications (CDA) provide back-end services to support content management and delivery while creating content in a Content Management Application (CMA). The CMA allows marketers, merchandisers, and other content producers to work with content without involving IT departments.
Now and then, you hear horror stories about the failed implementation of the website content management system (CMS). Companies spend a lot of money & time in order to develop a CMS but end up in a huge mess.
Developing a content management system required effective planning & time. First, you need to get to the point where you have selected a CMS and understand the strategy you want to use well enough. There are lot of examples of content management systems out there and their features are available. Sometimes it is difficult to choose one for your own project, that where Bitbytesoft can help.
In that case, a number of things can derail from above writings -
Examples of content management systems are a great resource to first understand the alignment of features if they can meet your project roadmap and demand not only now but also in future. Hence, strategy is one of the most important things in CMS development.
Before selecting a new website content management system, you should understand your content management strategy well. Selection, planning, implementation, and the efforts should be invested in this stage.
So, the question-“what I need or trying to achieve”, should be in your mind first.
You have to plan your website & content design to map out your content, tools, data, etc. to customize the design and functionality of your website.
Understand CMS Features
After determining your CMS strategy, it's time to select the content management platforms with the features you need to achieve your vision.
You have to measure the implementation skills needed and features to create a good website structure, navigation, and ease of use design with appropriate HTML and CSS.
Measure the Cost
As a big sum must come with a website content management system development, it’s crucial to measure the project cost. In that manner, you can minimize many unsavory surprising costs during the project.
Calculate Your ROI
While you invest a lot of money, your returns should be guaranteed. So measuring your costs also helps to calculate your ROI, which helps determine your returns.
Make Your Budget
After measuring your costs and returns, you can now make your project budget to map out how much the budget will be good enough until the end of your project.
Many of the traditional CMS headaches stem from the need to hire specialized and qualified resources for a particular CMS infrastructure. And this can limit or create bottlenecks.
However, each CMS has its own way of mitigating the problems.
We believe that a single CMS is best suited for running a website, but, surprisingly, a few web development agencies use the same CMS for each project. As a result, from clients to agencies, they often wonder if the CMS fits in well with the website they get and what happens to the CMS that the agency uses for their clients.
There are some checking processes for each of the projects-
“Anything for good results needs good planning”- and good planning needs discussion.
Discussion means communicating with the whole team and as well as with the client. In addition, it helps to manage all the development tasks.
We organize meetings with the client & discuss the whole project. It helps to write every specification and manage it for project development. We then send the absolute requirement to the client to cross-check with him if any point is missing or not.
In this way, each task can be fully functional and easy to maintain. We send weekly updates officially, and then the project is online to check the features at any time. At weekly client meetings, we take the feedback from clients and fix the issues.
Keeping communication helps us stay in touch, speed up, and responsiveness in mind that gradually progress the project.
As WordPress is easy to operate & most people are familiar with the system and able to manage the system, so we often use the WordPress CMS platform for development. But we are willing to use other platforms if clients want.
Design is essential for any website, so first, we ask for the desired design that the clients want for their website. Then we design the whole site from scratch and make it customizable easily in the future.
Sometimes we use themes & templates to make things easy in order to consume less time. We are concerned about the responsiveness of a site, so the team makes the site responsive for all device screens.
We never compromise the quality because only a quality site can bring the results that are crucial for the clients' returns of the investment.
Generally, Bitbytesoft takes from One to two months for any project delivery.
As we mentioned, we keep our clients updated every moment we send weekly progress reports to the clients to give feedback. Then, we take the necessary steps to mitigate the changes and improve things depending on the client feedback.
In the expected duration, we complete the project and ask the client to test it. In the meantime, the client tries the site and sends his comments. If anything is significant, we mitigate them and ask again for checking.
for your project development
When we have the final version, we send a formal email to the client, tell him to check the site, and then clear the payment.
After delivery, we give around three months after development support. If there is any issue or anything that needs to change, we provide the necessary support.
Develop a website content management system from scratch and use tools to create a good website structure, navigation, and ease of use, and developers must have the skills to implement.
