What is a CMS and why would I want one?
CMS stands for "Content Management System". A CMS has a control panel that allows easy access to non-coders for edits, updates and styling on their websites. Squarespace, Wordpress and Wix are all examples of a CMS. The different platforms have different features and we can help you choose what will be best for you.
I thought CMS’s like Squarespace were DIY. Why do I need a professional designer to create a website?
Yes, you can do it yourself. If you have a simple site and the time and know-how to find your way around a content management system then you should be able to create a nice looking website. But, having a designer help with your Squarespace project gives you access to someone to help customize and wrangle the words, images and layouts to create the experience your viewers will love. Here’s how we help to save you time and money in the long run:
Organize your content with an objective eye to develop a great story
Create and manipulate beautiful images, audio, video and optimize content for fast site loading
Make tweaks and judgments about fonts, graphics and looks
Custom code your template (for great look and function on all sized devices)
Create a logo for your unique brand
Leverage features that create commerce sites, galleries, calendars, maps, scheduling and contact management
Create, connect or redirect your URL, email accounts and social media links
Submit your site for search engine optimization
Train you to manage your site once the design process is done.

Computer sales are decreasing while mobile sales rise. More people view websites on their phones than on their desktops. This trend is expected to grow. Search engines give preferential ranking to sites that are mobile friendly. All of this adds up to mobilize!
