Whether you are creating a new website from scratch or migrating to a new CMS and building a brand-new website, a content marketing audit is one of the first things you need to do. To help you get started, we look at six best practices you should follow to ensure your audit gives you the information you need to build a great website.
With web pages getting more complex all the time, schemas (page types) are becoming large and unwieldy, making it very difficult to manage a consistent experience. We introduced Page Builder in Ingeniux CMS version 9 to accelerate the design experience. But, that was just the beginning… Become familiar with Page Builder and how you can use this tool in Ingeniux CMS 10.
If you aren't monitoring the performance of your website and adapting it through insights gleaned from your analytics, then you should be. To help you understand the value that web analytics brings to your digital content experience, we recently held a webinar, Data-Driven Digital Strategy: Measuring Success with Web Analytics. Ingeniux VP of Business Development, Keith Osiewicz, walked through the importance of web metrics and how you can apply them in your organization to help you develop a data-driven digital strategy.
There has been a lot of discussion about the importance of digital assets in web and customer experience this past year. Web-based text content is still the primary way for customers to learn more about a company and its products and services, but other content types have gained in popularity. Videos, images, downloadable documents and PDFs, and other assets are a key part of the digital experience, and you need to manage them with the same care and rigor as your web pages. At Ingeniux, we look at digital assets in the same way we look at text-based web content.
Research shows that the first thing most people do when they come to a website is search for content. The new version of Ingeniux CMS comes with an improved version of Ingeniux InSite Search. What we wanted to do was not only provide a great search experience to end-users - the visitor - but also improve the management of the search experience for administrators. InSite Search is based on Lucene.NET and is used within the CMS for both website search and backend content management search. InSite Search is a standalone application that integrates seamlessly with Ingeniux CMS 10. Learn more about the new and improved InSite Search and how to work with it in CMS 10.
It's been said that you can never make your customers happy all of the time. Even if you make them happy 99% of the time - that one bad experience will destroy all of the good ones. So, if you don't focus on making customers happy 100% of the time, what do you focus on? That is the central focus of a video from Esteban Kolsky's Beyond the Hype series. In the video, Kolsky says we must turn our attention to providing customers the ability to do what they need to do, how and when they want to do it. The future of customer service is customer self-service. Learn more about this shift in focus, and where to start with your company.
Website administrators in the Life Sciences industry face the difficult task of building a website that disseminates information effectively. Why is this necessary? Certificates of analysis, material safety datasheets, tech sheets, etc. have existed for years in the Life Sciences industry. For safety and legal reasons, many customers require that a printed copy of these documents exist where the products are being used; therefore, customers need to find these documents on their vendors’ websites - fast.
If you want to understand structured content and its benefits. there's no better person to talk to than Ann Rockley.
