Content management systems (CMS)’s such as Drupal, Wordpress, and Joomla can be built in thousands of ways. One thing we get to see from behind these curtains is the huge difference between a good, architected, user-friendly administrative end, and a back end that ends up creating more work for busy marketing teams. It is very easy for developers to offer a budget-build "content management system" that doesn’t actually manage content at all. It's an important distinction; a site that lets users update their own website without code is not necessarily a "content management system."</p></div></div></div> Sat, 21 Feb 2015 02:40:41 +0000 DFMAdmin 789 at https://www.

With regard to a capital campaign, a brand is not just the standard logo, typefaces, and color palettes. Of course it is important to look professional and appealing; but the emotional story you are telling your donors is the real brand.
