Ameravant Web Studio has recently released
a new version of SiteNinja CMS, an intuitive web design tool aimed at vastly improving the website design experience and search engine optimization of content. SiteNinja Content Management System “CMS” was developed in-house by Ameravant Web Studio, a Santa Barbara-based web design and development company with 13 years of top-performing websites under its belt.
The CMS’ intelligent tools allow the website owner the freedom to change content at the click of a button, eliminating the need for expensive and sometimes inaccessible website programmers. The all-in-one hosted web solution allows for scalability, including mobile responsive design, and comes with free live support. A recent sampling of Ameravant clients showed that 26 percent of website traffic was coming from mobile devices, further proving a need for sites to be viewable on ever-changing mobile devices. Ameravant owner Michael Kramer is an advocate for empowering clients.
