Some brief thoughts on the CMS selection process

Content management system selection is a frequent topic of conversation whenever I’m on the road. I put together a very short primer to talk about the one thing I don’t hear people talking about enough when considering a new platform. Everyone has different challenges, but there are some consistent challenges and I explore them in this 15 minute video, with the idea that you’ll reach out if you have additional questions.

The Ron Bronson Show – Episode 1

Play

I have for months been wanting to produce a show – mostly narrated slides – where I share with you some stuff I’ve learned around digital strategy, user research, product thinking and social media that might help you. I think I just do a better job of sharing & for the people who don’t know me, you can experience “me” better when you hear and see me. Though there will not be any seeing for this podcast right now.

So I’m going to kick this off. I literally don’t want to spend all of the time in the world editing things to death because I do that or focusing on the perfect logo, because I do that too. This is minimum viable product all the way. Get in the studio, shoot a bunch of stuff and ship it. That’s my deal here and I’ve recorded this first episode as really an exercise in holding myself accountable to all of you, to share more of what I know.

Feel free to tune it, but this exercise is really for me to consistently demonstrate and share what I’ve learned all these years because I’ve been in your shoes not knowing who to ask, where to ask and why…and you don’t always know what you don’t know.

Hopefully I strike a chord or a nerve and it makes you want to know more. Mostly I hope there’s more than one episode.
