Website Development, Update and Maintenance

Do I need a programmer to create a website from scratch? No. There are 1000s of templates that can be installed and customized so your site is unique and attractive without "recreating the wheel." Years ago, you'd hire a programmer to hand code and make every update, very costly. Now, you can save time and money using a template, update and publish your own content using a CMS such as WordPress. To install advanced functions, experience and knowledge helps to configure them to work properly; in some cases programming may be necessary.

Are you a programmer, can you do programming? No and Yes. A "programmer" is someone who creates your site from scratch, writing code. While I built sites this like using early HTML, sites today are heavily built on PHP and Javascript because it's more efficient, allows for complex functions, and works better on mobile devices. I have manually installed and edited both. Unless you are a corporation, need specialized functions, and your budget is $100k+, it's not necessary to hire someone to build your site from nothing.

I'm busy. Can you maintain and update my site? Yes. I can take care of updates and new content for you, write original material or make edits. CMS platforms do take time to learn, some are very complex. It´s more efficient to have someone with experience help you get started, install and setup your CSM site, customize, add images, videos and interactive functions. If you like, I can teach you how to update and publish content.

Can I do it all myself? Yes. While CMS platforms are complex and have a steep learning curve, WordPress is a good place for a simple portfolio site and blog, although it can also include advanced funcions and interaction, online stores, restaurants, real estate listings, B&Bs, and more. If you are technically inclined, or have time to learn, it's possible. Some hosting services offer web building tools and templates; Caveat - options can be limited (or by added fees) so check before you sign up.
