Pressed for Words

When a web developer starts to create a website, there are almost limitless ways it can be done. From writing HTML to wrap around the content and then styling them with some CSS and images, through to creating a fully customised Content Management System. So what does Swan Developments do and why? I’m going to answer the second question first, as the why tells us how to decide upon the what.

Our customers want a modern, fast, easy to update website that can have features added without being told “Well, you’re going to have to start all over again!” If they wish to add a page, write a new blog post, or simply alter a price or a phone number, then they really don’t want to have to pay us to do it (although we are happy to take this on!). Equally, if for some reason a customer wants to get someone else to work on their site, they don’t want every web developer to tell them that they’ve never heard of Pink Carrot CMS (I made that up, but it’s a great name!) so they will want their website developed on a “mainstream” content management system.
