Have a look at how companies are adapting to CMS:
One of the biggest retailer companies in the world with more than 12,000 stores in 30 countries had several key selection criteria when looking for a new experience management solution and they lacked a CMS to bring together multiple parts of the customer experience. In a contentious evaluation process where multiple solutions were considered, they chose open and flexible CMS built to drive results faster.
With the CMS adaption, the company had reduced operational costs with faster and more cost-effective development that led to accelerated time-to-market with new features and innovations. They had improved team productivity agility along with an increase in flexibility to upgrade and customize its digital commerce platform. In a business, where many people can have access to your website — starting from those who add product pages to those who produce huge consumer-centric posts for your content marketing efforts, a CMS makes it easy to manage roles and publishing permissions for all so that only those you allow can publish content and the content goes live only when you’re ready.
Personalizing engines integration with CMS:
Target integration with a full-featured CMS will allow you to personalize your content for any kind of audience. You can have access to the best data about your customers along with the digital intelligence necessary to make effective marketing decisions by integrating Target with the Adobe Marketing Cloud.
CMS in the eCommerce Industry:
Good content has the power to communicate information, educate, and change minds. It pulls in readers and helps you share your point of view and demonstrate expertise. Words may have been one of our oldest means of persuasive power but they are far from the only type of content. Photos, videos, and infographics, to name a few, can all be powerful methods of getting your message across to customers.
In an age of rising digital advertising costs, it’s no wonder that content marketing is being increasingly relied upon to draw in organic traffic and provide a better customer experience.
Here are some quick facts on the rise of content in eCommerce systems:
- Around half of all marketers plan to use content to reach their customers.
- 72% of businesses find that content marketing increases engagement.
- 64% of enterprises are looking for ways to create a better content strategy.
Businesses are starting to make changes to increase their content marketing budgets as CMS is playing a vital role in the digital era to attract customers.
Why do large enterprises need to have CMS combined with a personalizing engine?
As yet, we might seem like CMS evangelists, but the truth is- not every ecommerce store needs a separate CMS. Typically, the sites that need a CMS are ones that need to have their content refreshed frequently. Ecommerce sites often qualify because they keep updating the homepage content and product pages with new additions to keep things fresh.
AEM as a CMS platform:
