Building a website is very much like building an office/ retail space, except it's your online office. You wouldn't say to your builder, "Hey, I want an office. Just build it. And I can have it next week, right?"
The competition on the internet today is fierce. Websites on the internet more than doubled in 2012. (See graph below). The use of Content Management Systems (CMS) is primarily the reason behind the boom. They are easy, fast, and free (for the most part). They give the owner of the site instant access to add, delete, and edit content and offer an ever-growing array of cool plug-ins (slideshows, photo galleries, social sharing, etc) to make the site an interactive, exciting experience.
