Norm4webdesign can help you build and create a great website that willtruly enhance your products or services.
Many clients find it easier to post on social media, rather than post on a website.
With social media, it’s done! A real-time entry that immediately shows quick results and you can see the benefits, views and likes, within minutes or hours.
When taking a wider view, what is lost is the longevity, social media is short term, the post being pushed down by more recent posts and off-screen. While if routed via a website the benefit is the post will be online and recorded in the website portfolio of posts/press releases and events, for a long time.
The Website portfolio can be viewed by prospects and subscribers to add to the sustainability and stature of the website owner, along with the other featured content of the website.
So developing a Content Management System, with post-social media discipline on the website, will result in publication simultaneously on the website and a number of social media sites.
The end result a win/win, views and likes on social media and a permanent record on the website and really does not take much longer.
