What is a content management system?

5x5_pixel

Every day, news organizations use a CMS, or content management system, to publish their articles online. It’s typically the first technology your news organization chooses when building their tech stack.

If you’re starting a newsletter, you might use an email service provider (ESP) as your CMS.

What might I need a CMS for?

5x5_pixel

Content management systems don’t just help publish - they also support other parts of your news organization, like audience engagement, ad revenue, or reader revenue.

Review these questions to make sure a CMS can meet your needs:

Audience

  • Do you moderate, approve, and remove comments?
  • Do you send emails, texts, or notifications when an article is published?
  • Do you send newsletters?
  • Do you recommend articles based on individual readers?
  • Do you support a print publication by exporting articles for layouts?

Content

  • Do you publish real-time, localized information, like local weather or traffic?
  • Do you publish social media content, like Tweets or public Facebook posts?

Monetization

  • Do you sell ads?
  • Do you have a subscription with a paywall?
  • Do you collect payments on your site, like for donations?

Who will use your CMS?

Many news organizations have several teams that might use your content management system, such as:

  • Editorial will publish every day
  • Audience might publish or re-publish articles
  • Product might ensure articles are displaying properly based on your site’s design
  • Business might manage different sources of revenue, like creating subscription landing pages or ensuring ads are displaying properly

Evaluate whether a content management system will meet your needs by asking these questions, especially if you’re a smaller news organization:

  • Technical skills: Who can help you with implementation?
  • Support: Who can you ask if you have questions or issues?
  • Familiarity: How familiar is your team with other content management systems? Which have they used in the past?
  • Price: How much can you budget? Can you start with a free option, and pay for an upgrade later?
