Headless Websites & Storyblok CMS
Intelligent content production. Unprecedented flexibility. Incredibly powerful online experiences.
If you’re a head of ecommerce, marketing manager, or website developer wanting to harness the power of headless, you’re in the right place.
Our headless whitepaper explains what a headless website is, why it’s the future of websites, and how it can catapult your business ahead of the competition.
As a headless CMS agency, we’re able to bridge the gap between content creators and developers.
We can allow for ease of content creation, upload and maintenance for our clients – meaning that, in turn, they can provide better experiences for their customers.
We recognise that brands, business owners and marketers want web developer freedom, improved load speeds and user experience, and content flexibility to meet customers at every touchpoint. That’s why The Bigger Boat has partnered with leading headless content management system (CMS) Storyblok – and we’re one of only a handful of UK-based partners.
Considering a headless CMS? Whether it’s an ecommerce headless CMS or otherwise, the TBB X Storyblok partnership gives us access to a wealth of features and support when building a headless website that wouldn’t be available to us otherwise. The ‘partner portal’ provides freedom and flexibility to develop websites and applications in a sandbox environment. We’re now equipped to build wholly bespoke solutions for our clients via a platform that increases our efficiency, as well as the quality and accuracy of the end product.
The benefits of headless websites
Users want their content instantly. They won’t wait around for an image to render or a webpage to load – they’ll simply go elsewhere. With a headless CMS, the back end is separated, so the front end (what the user sees) is lighter and unaffected by the weight of data and content. That’s a much-reduced loading time for users and unparalleled user experience.
The traditional CMS is now extremely popular, making it vulnerable to hackers who may target particularly old versions. Step forward the headless framework – there’s nothing on the front-end website to hack because content and any customer data sit safely and independently. Only you have access to this.
The traditional CMS requires version and plugin updates but this will often lead to problems and bugs that need to be fixed. A headless CMS doesn’t require any maintenance. There are no core updates and no plugins. You’ll never need to migrate data or perform updates, as the content remains static while changes are made to the front end.
Websites built with a headless CMS can use the same content across multiple websites or platforms. It’s one source of data serving many platforms, meaning your business can scale without your website slowing it down.
The great thing about the Storyblok headless CMS is its simplicity and ease of use. Yes, developers have additional flexibility to do what they do best, but multiple people, even those with little technical expertise, can easily add to the CMS.
Great news, because your customers are likely catching on to this innovative and unparalleled way of building websites. As a Storyblok partner, we’re well versed in the headless CMS and supporting you in taking your business’ website to the next level.
