In today's world, everything seems to change from one day to the next. Your website should always be growing and changing with you and your business. An outdated website, that is not being regularly maintained, is extremely obvious the moment a visitor hits your front page. Unless you want your website to look the same as it did in 1996, like the Space Jam website, you'd better start thinking about ways to keep it fresh. Okay, that was a bad example, because the Space Jam website is still pretty awesome.
A content management system (CMS) is software that helps a website owner create, manage, and update their website content without technical knowledge of website code. You may have heard of technologies such as Wix and Squarespace, but when it comes to content management systems, there's no bigger name than Wordpress.
40% of all websites on the internet are powered by Wordpress.
This is up from just 13% ten years ago. You might think "hey, that's probably just a ton of peoples' personal blogs", but that is not the case! Several large and very well-known companies such as Microsoft.com and Zoom.us are partially built on the Wordpress framework.
