BLOGS & CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (CMS)

When You Want To Manage Your Own Website Content

With WordPress blogs & Joomla open source code designs you don’t even need a website. Your blog IS Your Website!

In our opinion, Blogging is the cornerstone of all Social Media Marketing. The reason? Blogs are versatile content management systems with all kinds of Social Media Marketing functionality built right in.

That’s right!

The humble blog has RSS feeds that allow you to plug your content into sites like Facebook and LinkedIn as well as other online destinations like Twitter. Not to mention that blogs offer the ability for your site visitors to comment on your content and create conversations with you and other site visitors. Talk about engagement!

CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (CMS)

Forgetting about blogging for a minute, CMS websites built on WordPress or Joomla are extremely versatile for updating and managing ALL your content.

And at Samson Media, we not only build and design your custom CMS but we include personalized instruction on how to use it.  Using popular desk-top sharing capabilities like GoToMeeting, we can train one to a hundred people on how to use your CMS and make it a valuable tool in your marketing arsenal.
