Powering over 43% of websites on the Internet, chances are that more than 1 in 3 websites you visit today uses WordPress as their Content Management System (CMS). It is a valuable tool for anyone to create and manage content publishing: from content marketers, bloggers, people with little technical experience to skilled programmers.
But why do you need Digital Asset Management for your WordPress site?
Digital Asset Management solves Content Challenges on WordPress
WordPress users face numerous challenges when they have to upload and manage a growing amount of digital content.
1. Limited Image Search Capabilities
Having trouble searching and managing your visual content through the native WordPress gallery?
With a plethora of images across numerous pages on your website, users sometimes find it hard to navigate to the right image in the image gallery.
On WordPress, the DAM system comes in the form of its in-built media library that you can use to upload documents and images. Yet, the categorizing, accessing, or sharing functionalities you might anticipate from a conventional DAM system are not available.
Even though there are features to include image metadata in WordPress itself, the search capabilities may not be as advanced and sufficient to support an extensive database of images.
2. An over-reliance on Plugins to Address Content Needs
The draw of WordPress CMS is that it comes with numerous plugins for almost everything without the need to edit a single line of code; great for non-technical users.
Want a better image editor? – WordPress gallery plugin
Require automated image optimization functions? – WordPress image optimization plugin
Yet, having too many plugins can become confusing over time, or worse, slow down your entire website.
3. Visual Content and the Compromise on Website Speed
We all know Google prefers fast-loading websites. With new and varied types of content uploaded daily, WordPress websites may eventually slow down if months of accumulated visual content are not correctly optimized. WordPress image optimization typically involves individuals manually resizing images and ensure they are in the correct format before uploading them to the native gallery.
But what if I want image optimization to be automated too? Another plugin?
You may then be perplexed about how you should juggle having seamless content operations without compromising website speeds.
Not to worry, with the Filerobot DAM plugin, you don’t need to rely on numerous plugins to solve all your content challenges. The plugin allows you to manage your digital assets efficiently, works as a WordPress image optimizer, and even helps as a WordPress image editor.
Especially when digital content increases exponentially each day, business owners need these DAM features to categorize their media files and share them safely with others in order to scale.
