Keeping your website content updated is an incessant task, something none of us like to accept but that's life. A website that never changes, has no updates or new content implies to your visitor that you and your company may be equally inactive. This in any rational chain of thought is definitely not the impression you want to give. Hence, the accepted phrase "An neglected website is worse than no website at all!"
The technicality of getting the information up there is often the issue. Sure, you know better than anyone else what you want posted so creating or finding the information to post is simple. Even throwing in a few images or video clips still doesn't hold you back. However, the problems start to arise when you send it over to your web designer only to find out that the soonest they can squeeze it in is the end of the week! It might not be the end of the world but your preference is to have it on there and then with the added bonus of no designer's fee.

Hey, if you can think of anything else let us know and we'll make it possible. You're not restricted to editing the pages we setup for you either, you can add or remove pages whenever you want and if needed move them to a different section, which you can create.
News and Blog
You are now your own publisher and have complete control over articles posted on your site. Articles carry all the usual expectations such as images, videos, links and more. There is no limit to the number of articles you add, something worth remembering as the more articles a site has the better. Search engines love crawling through your articles too, it's what they do to optimize search engine results.
If you have a lot on and want your visitors to know then what you need is an online events calendar. Now your visitors know when to find you, even within minutes of you knowing your going! The events calendar allows you to create/schedule events, show optional information such as who to contact & availability if places are restricted.
Photo & media

Or use CentrumCMS to post those important galleries of photos and give your visitors the opportunity to have a more personal insight into your companies products and services. Galleries can also be fed onto information pages allowing you to add a number of pictures neatly and tidy.
Something any website owner should be interested in! How many visitors and how they found your site.

The visitor stats are an essential tool when running a marketing campaign or any other targeted campaign, you can see for yourself the effectiveness of each campaign as the visitors drop in.
