When looking for a web designer or web developer, you should first get clear on what you want.
Do you want an attractive, functional, scalable and easy to manage website, or one that just gets you by? What about a website that you can update, blog from and add news and announcements to yourself? Or do you want one that you need to hire a web developer for the rest of your site’s life to manage? Do you want a website that will withstand the test of time in technology, preserving and optimizing your investment, or, one that will be obsolete in oh say 2 years? How about one that’s on a proprietary platform that will disappear just as instantly as it hit the market when the partners that stand behind it have a falling out?
WordPress web design may be the solution for you.
