A Content Management System (CMS) is a computer program that allows owners to easily maintain and manage their own websites on a daily basis. Marketing Provisions primarily uses WordPress and Joomla! for our CMS. We are also proficient in PHP and Cold Fusion.
Why do we use template-based websites? By starting with an existing template and customizing the graphics, layout and content to suit your business, we can save you thousands of dollars in development costs. We can also complete your project in a fraction of the time it takes to create a fully customized website.
WordPress and Joomla are extremely user friendly systems, even for the non-technical administrator. This means there is no more waiting for a programmer to fit you into their schedule and charge you a lot of money to make a few small changes. With a few lessons and some tutorial videos that we provide you can do it yourself!
WordPress started in 2003 as a blogging site, but has now grown to be a top website building tool and Content Management System (CMS).
While free and premium templates are available to choose from we don’t stop there. We design and add code to make your website as personalized and individualized as your business is. There are also hundreds of add-ons and third party integrations that can be used as well, so your web design will be unique. E-commerce, photo galleries, calendars, social media integrations, blogging and so many more additions can be incorporated into a basic WordPress website.
