I recommend WordPress for the majority of small business websites. WordPress is the most user-friendly content management system. After your website is created, you will easily be able to make edits on your own.
The quickest and most affordable option to start your web design is to get theme (either free or premium.) Shop around for a theme that you like, keeping in mind that it can be edited and customized to suit your specific needs. If you need something more specific, I can build you a completely custom theme, or a custom theme based on an existing HTML page or design mockup.
Plugins and Extra Functionality
Content management systems like WordPress have plugins, which are software packages that add extra functionality to your website. These can be anything from social media integration to design options to slideshows. If you have something in mind for your website, there’s probably a plugin for it.
As much as 50% of website views are now coming from mobile devices — smartphones and tablets. It is no longer an option to have a website that only works on computer screens. A responsive website will adjust itself when viewed on different screen sizes. When choosing a content management system and design, it’s essential to find responsive-ready software.
