I am a beginner freelancer eagerly trying to get my first client but I am wondering is having a CMS for a website really that important? Before I thought about this question I thought that it goes without saying that the client would benefit from having a CMS for their website, that they would love to be able to edit their content on their own. But then I realized it's not that simple.
One of my biggest concerns actually is a monetary one. If you install a CMS for a client then they depend on you less which means you will do less work for them which means you will make less money from that client. Sorry to sound greedy, but that really seems like the reality. Or am I missing something?
At the same time, if you build sites without a CMS doesn't that make you seem less professional to future potential clients?
