Yeah. In my experience the clients that want the CMS never want to learn how to use it so they just have you make the changes in the CMS. I try to push toward a retainer agreement for changes rather than a CMS. Every client is unique though.


Very true, and the retainer agreement is a good approach. I wonder how many hours I could have saved writing CMS documentation and/or having training sessions for clients, only to find myself logging into the system a few months later for a simple content update.

It's pretty mind-boggling. It just comes down to people knowing what they (think they) want, but not what they need.
