Many clients want a professionally designed website but don't want to pay someone like me every time they need to change the content.  They would prefer to be able to make simple changes to the content themselves.

That's where a Content Management System (CMS) comes in.  It gives you a professional look and functionality, but allows you to change the content yourself.  You do need someone to design and implement the initial site, and that's where I come in.

I specialize in a CMS called Joomla! and also WordPress.  Both are free and open-source and have a wide range of add-ons that extend their functionality to do almost anything.  We start by choosing a template - a pre-designed base website and then customize it to your needs.  There are many templates to choose from covering a wide range of design styles from simple (like this site) to very complex.

Once the site is designed, you can start to add content.  You'll need someone like me to keep the site maintained and to make more complex changes like adding menu items, pages, other functions, etc. and I offer monthly maintenance of your site.  Or I can train you or your staff do these tasks as well (but it does take more tech skills).

Here are some recent examples of sites that I have designed and maintain:

Beth Chaim Congregation

 

iPadKitchen (a concept site, not much content there)
