Content Management Evolution

Feed.Us is a web-based content management system that that "embeds" rather than installs into your website.

We've created a completely different kind of CMS.  It's a simple and better way of handling content on a website: Feed.Us embeds into your site instead of installs into your server.  It installs sort of like a website widget, but it's not javascript - it uses one server file that calls content from Feed.Us. 

Content management systems today have become bloated website file managers.   A CMS shouldn't handle your site's SEO.  And it shouldn't determine the way your site looks (the template). Your CMS should handle your content - the stuff that changes regularly: your news, your product descriptions, your events, your photos, your embedded videos, etc.

Feed.Us doesn't setup your site's template and it doesn't determine your SEO.  It works with the platform and CSS to accomplish those features.  It will make better SEO and faster sites.  Platforms, like PHP or rails, have very few constraints.  You can't add an ecommerce system to Movable Type.  But there are 100s of PHP ecommerce systems that can be used right alongside Feed.Us.

We've freed the content from the CMS.  You can add your content to any site - your site or a partner or client's site.

So learn more about Feed.Us via the below tour or contact us today and we'll take you through a demo.

Feed.Us is affordable and comes with a free 30 day trial.  Sign up, see pricing or click here for screenshots.
