One of the goals with Evolve Systems is to empower businesses to manage their websites and online social media presences and campaigns. To do this, we offer incredibly user friendly content management system websites and e-commerce websites. Additionally, we conduct in-house training focusing on multiple levels of usability, helping our clients build their skills as they familiarize themselves with the software systems we offer. Evolve Systems also offers a free weekly open labs sessions where clients can come in and work on their websites and ask questions of our programming team. All of our clients go through our training session, and many come in to take advantage of our Open Labs time.
Another way Evolve Systems empowers our clients is through suggesting articles and resources on Twitter and Facebook and through this Evolve Blog. Our Post-Lunch Links Coma blog series every Friday afternoon specifically is geared toward collecting the most helpful news, resources, and DIY (do-it-yourself) articles we find on the Internet and then sharing them with you. If there is ever a topic you want Evolve Systems to cover or talk about, send us a message on Twitter, Facebook, our blog, or by email on our website.
So here is a little bit of empowering advice for businesses on maintaining their website:
HTML is not that hard or scary. As you begin to use the tools Evolve Systems equips you with, you will begin to pick up the patterns and lingo that we and other web developers and integration companies use. If you spend no more than 15 minutes a day writing and uploading fresh content to your website, your website will begin to rank higher in search engines, earning you more visitors and conversions, and potentially more sales as well. And, as a side benefit, while you are using the blogging software Evolve Systems can set up for you, whether it is WordPress, Amiro.CMS, or any other platform, you will be looking at and using HTML, and eventually, you will begin to grow so much more comfortable using it than without it.
For instance, I write each Evolve Blog post in the HTML section here on WordPress. It is more powerful and versatile than the “Visual” section. And yet, as I write it, it looks like a simple Word document. That’s because I am writing it in a, you could say, “code free” zone, using plain text. I can add code elements later, such as BOLDS, ITALICS, HYPERLINKS, whatever I desire. And I have greater control over it. It’s really quite simple.
