What is a CMS? : A website Content Management System
is a cloud based application that allows developing, publishing, editing and modifying
content, organising, deleting as well as maintenance from a central online interface.
Such systems of content management provide procedures to manage workflow in a collaborative
Adobe Business Catalyst CMS
Since 2012, I have been an Adobe Business Catalyst Premium Partner and
use this system almost exclusively for all client projects. This CMS is designed
for professional web designers to create websites for their clients to manage easily.
I choose this system because its scalable, has the features that most small businesses
require all within the same login and is very secure.
Included with Every Project
The CMS features a live feed on your admin dashboard and an in-built CRM. Whenever customers interact with your website (eg: open a newsletter, submit a web form, purchase a product and so forth), you can see their action appear in real time on your live feed and these details are stored in the website database for future use.
I offer a premium web design service ensuring a unique design is created to reflect your business brand and also renders nicely across a variety of mobile devices. Each project includes a quality controlled 6 Step Process.
After your website is launched I'm only an email away to answer any queries you may have that are related to your website or online marketing needs. I reply to client enquiries as soon as I can and enjoy helping or suggesting solutions to the variety of questions I receive. If the enquiry is technically related to the CMS, as a premium partner, I have the added support from Adobe if required.
The CMS gives the key metrics, statistics and analytics to understand every facet of your online business. The easy-to-use online dashboard shows a handy series of graphs and stats that allow you to make quick, smart decisions based on solid information. You will receive a weekly report via email with a snapshot of basic stats so you can keep an eye on the effectiveness of your website each week. For deeper analysis, Google Analytics can be added to your website if desired.
The hosting structure of my web designs are based on a cloud based SaaS (Software as a Service) application: In addition to the website design and construction, the finished project needs to be hosted on a reliable web server so it is available on the internet. My CMS platform is not only hosted but powered and continually updated by Adobe software engineers.
The CMS is designed with the search engines in mind. I include SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) in all of my projects and have achieved great results for my clients. Every website comes standard with 301 redirects, SEO friendly URLS and customisable meta-tags.
Help visitors find what they’re looking for faster with a local search engine on your website. Key words can be typed into the searchbox with the resulting internal links listed on a search results page. This module is very useful for larger sites.
Particularly useful for larger websites with complex navigation, the sitemap page is usually linked from the footer of the website and displays a list of all pages on your website. I include this as standard for all multi-paged web designs.
Attractive icons are designed into your website header or footer linking to your social media pages including Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, YouTube, Trip Adviser or any others you may need. An interactive Google map on your home page or contact page is also a nice feature to help your customers find you!
SAAS Based Web Hosting
My all-in-one solution is based on a cloud based SaaS (Software
as a Service) application: hosted on secure servers in a Sydney data centre. Software
updates and security patches are included in the hosting plan ensuring you are
always running the most recent secure version of the CMS with all the latest features.
Having each client website licensed to Adobe, allows me to concentrate on providing
an excellent web design service rather than wasting time on web server maintenance,
manually upgrading old versions plus of course peace of mind that websites are
safe from being hacked.
My affordable service plans include the Adobe
software license, generous quotas (which can be increased even further if needed),
unlimited support provided locally by Darwin Web Design (with added back up from
Adobe if needed) plus the following top quality features:
Keeping it local for added speed. My client's websites are hosted in the Sydney data centre
(Amazon) servers dedicated to running this CMS platform
Redundant power supplies, multiple layers of physical and operational security,
fire protection services and on-site professionals 24/7
Continuous system updates
Unlike ordinary hosting, my web designs also include: automatic software updates, feature upgrades
and security patches so you are always running the current most secure version
