The smarter way to manage many websites
17 Jun 2020
Are you looking to boost innovation, unify branding, and save time? One of the biggest challenges facing businesses as they grow and scale, is how to effectively manage their online presence. Over time, growth can quickly lead to inconsistent and fragmented web and digital assets, resulting in high operating costs to maintain it all. Meanwhile, turning things around and regaining control can feel like trying to turn an oil tanker.
Larger organisations crave the agility and speed of smaller market players. What effect would it have on your business if you could work faster and smarter?
The number one tip I would give anyone in that situation is to start asking "is there a better way?"
Avoid the chaos that can result from unplanned growth by implementing digital and web solutions that are fit for purpose from the earliest opportunity.
What does this mean?
When you grow organically, knowing when to ‘scale-up’ your online solutions can be difficult. It might seem disproportionate to plan too far ahead as there are so many unknowns about the business.
- How quickly will it grow?
- Where will growth happen?
- How will the audiences differ?
- What will you need as growth gains momentum?
Failing to plan can mean that you end up amassing a number of digital and web solutions that have each taken shape organically to meet a business need at a specific time, without a coherent structure that ties them together.
As a result, you end up with multiple teams managing hundreds, or possibly even thousands of applications and sites with no single overview that allows you to understand:
- The efficacy of each site.
- The value each site delivers to the business.
- If brand consistency is achieved.
- What security and compliance levels are being achieved across the business.
- How accurate the messaging is.
What is the alternative?
