Search engine optimisation - don't be fooled!

Good search engine optimisation can be achieved very easily using a Bamis CMS system.  Our content management system enable you to manage your own web page information at the same time as your web content.

Don't be tricked into thinking there is any more to SEO that good content combined with a few other basics, and a few backlinks.

If you are up against the giants it will not be possible to match their rankings, so think small - think niche and you will get somewhere!

If your product is unusual, on the other hand, you should be looking at page 1 of Google without too much difficulty.

WordPress and others offer good SEO capability for free, but you will be stuck with a not too nice template design and a complex administration area. A Bamis CMS on the other hand gives you a unique web presence with an easy to use content-management system.

Using open-source solutions - are they the answer?

Open source solutions (i.e web applications which are free and utilise open-source software like PHP and MySQL) are written by groups of people rather than a small team.

The resulting product is generally an excellent, full-featured application which is capable of offering far more than even the most demanding client is ever likely to require.

If you have time to master (and retain) the knowledge required to run say an open-source shopping cart (like Zen Cart) you will probably have a strong background in IT.  If you don't fall into this category, you will probably:

  • struggle
  • not be happy with the look of the basic application
  • have to resort to paying a 'professional' to set-up and use the system

Paying someone to change a free application seems a bit of a contradiction.  Once it's set up the way you want it to look, you still have to master the application's administration area - or again pay someone to maintain it for you. Contradiction number 2! 

Given that 'free' might be expensive in the long run, it makes more sense to invest in a low cost Bamis CMS system which will give you the look and colour scheme you want, combined with an easy to use content management system which will never cause you to lose sleep!

'Free' means a learning curve, errors, being a victim of regular application updates, and possibly the expensive services of an 'expert' (definition: someone who lives more than 20 miles away!).

Make the right decision and you will get the product you want and not have to adapt your ways of working to suit an 'off-the-shelf' application.

Online learning - one of our systems explained

Online learning is something that was the 'answer' to all problems a few years ago, but despite this it doesn't seem to have changed the world!

Open learning really scores when it is used as a means of offering 'micro learning' rather than full-blow courses.

Take the care industry as an example.  Care workers need training for both their benefit and that of their clients, but a degree with a wonderful name won't do much for anyone receiving care from a poorly trained care worker.

What's needed is training (ideally, easily via the web) which will provide the step-by-step requirements of a particular care-related activity - like for example manual handling.

Bamis has produced an online learning system which makes an ideal framework for this type of learning.  The training can be accessed at any time and can be kept up-to-date very easily.  It lends itself to assessment of underpinning knowledge via online testing as well.

If you would like more information about the Bamis online learning system, please complete the enquiry form on our contact us web page.
