Avoid Time-consuming and migraine-inducing migrations...

Just like you, I outgrew my CMS. The migration came with its challenges...

  • Running migrations 100’s of times to figure out how to get it right
  • Scouring the web to figure out how to accomplish that one thing that's not working
  • Dealing with the frustration of uploading images and referencing those images in the content migrations
  • Learning the APIs of the source and destination
  • Dealing with API rate limiting
  • Migrating all the data to realize one thing is missing, such as alt texts
  • Running up API usage from trial and error

Offload This One-Time Task

Time is of the essence. Why spend time learning to do a one-time task when you can dedicate your time to getting the project up and running?

Hire me to migrate your CMS data to another platform. Your data will arrive securely, quickly, and accurately.

👨‍💻 Content Management Systems

My projects usually go from a coupled/traditional CMS such as Webflow, Drupal, and WordPress or a headless CMS such as Prismic...

...To a headless CMS such as Sanity, Hygraph (I'm an official Hygraph Partner), and Contentful.

I've migrated to and from many different CMS platforms. If you use a CMS not listed here, please don't hesitate to reach out; once you do a few, they are all pretty similar :)

⚙️ Transformations

During the content migration, it may make sense to add transformations to your migration process.

Such as:

  • Combine two or more fields
  • Add `target="_blank"` to all external links, ensuring they open in a new tab
  • Combine two content types/collections
  • And more

Let me know, and we can make it happen.

➕ Additional CMS Migration Services

Model Data

Your CMS migration may be a 1:1 map. However, the upgraded CMS likely offers improved features, such as reusable components and code inputs. I can help you model your data. This will ensure you take full advantage of the new platform and make any other improvements to your data structure. I'm happy to meet with all the stakeholders involved to ensure we create something that meets or exceeds their hopes and desires.

SEO

SEO is likely the most significant risk and opportunity in the CMS migration process, especially if you are undergoing a website migration too. I'll help you ensure a smooth transition so that all measures are taken to limit/eliminate any negative impacts on search engine rankings.

  • URLs – By default, all URLs/slugs will stay the same. However, if your new structure or desire calls for different URLs, I can provide all the redirects from the current website to the new one. (Technically, there is a risk any time you redirect a URL. That's why I don't claim to "eliminate" all risk.)
  • Alt Text – I'll map all alt text values to the new CMS platform. We can even create new alt text in the data transfer if needed and if there are appropriate fields to use to create the alt text.
  • Misc. – Captions, canonicals, meta titles, meta descriptions, links, etc., are all elements that can impact your SEO performance. I'm fully equipped to migrate them (which is included in all migrations) and modify them per your requirements.
