There are so many platforms that can be used by businesses to build a website. So which one is right for you?
Here at WebDev7B we prefer to help out clients in the Sandpoint, Ponderay, and Northern Idaho region by using either an HTML/CSS or a WordPress approach.
Each way has its upsides, and downsides, depending on what the site will be used for.
Having us build your website with HTML/CSS is awesome for people that want a single page website that is static.
These kinds of websites will generally be a one page informational website about a single topic. If you don’t plan on writing a blog, or any articles about your business this is a great way to work.
Why does this make sense? HTML/CSS simple websites don’t need to be update, so you will only have to pay your monthly fees to maintain the site. No logging in and updating plugins.
You can also create the website to looks exactly the way you want it, as the site has free range of where you can place things, unlike WordPress sites based on a theme.
So what about downsides of HTML/CSS built sites? The main downside, is that unless you have extensive knowledge of how to code, it will be difficult for you to build anything more out on your site, and will need to have someone else do it in the future unless you plan on learning to code.
The Content Management System (CMS) WordPress is an awesome platform for business looking to have a website that has more than one page.
It allows for some great aesthetic choices, and gives a framework for your website.
Once your site is set up by us over here at WebDev7B, we can train you on the basics of how to operate your website. This includes creating new blog posts.
You can also have contact forms on your website, and more complicated things like a shop to sell your products right on your site!
The main downside of a WordPress site, is that you do need to think about the site regularly, as the site will need to be updated regularly for security reasons. However for a monthly fee, WebDev7B can help you with that!
