There are many wonderful CMS tools out there.  We personally, have a bias towards our own. As far as do-it-yourself website building, there are options for any variety of skill level.  We’ve discussed the importance of knowing what you want in your website before you decide to build it.  With constant change in our world’s growing technologies, it’s pretty clear that building a website no longer needs to cost an arm and a leg.  There are alternatives to hiring someone to build you a site…because….with all these technologies available…you CAN build a website yourself! 

We just wanted to point out why building your own site is a great idea, and why you should consider it.  In fact, we’ll give you 5 reasons why!

1. It’s Cost Effective

You don’t have to invest hundreds, or thousands of dollars into a website, to have a great website!  Many CMS tools are free to use.  Often, companies offer a free version of their prouduct to familiarize yourself with the tools (ie: yourwebsite.squarehook.com).  If you want to redirect a domain you’ve purchased, CMS tools can run as low as $10/month.  This often includes hosting, which makes it a deal that is hard to pass up.

2. You Can Work At Your Own Pace

Not sure what you want to put into a certain page?  No worries!  Is there a programmer hounding you for your website content?  Not if you’re building your own site.  If you hit a website builder’s block, you can take a break and get back to it when your ready.  There’s no rush.  If you hate a page you put together, you can delete it and start fresh.  You move as quick as you’d like.

3. You Have 100% Creative Freedom

When you use a CMS tool, you can do whatever you want to your website.  You don’t have to call a programmer to fix your content.  You can do it yourself whenever–wherever–with–WHOEVER.  You are the ‘who’ in this scenario.  You won’t get pushed into a design or theme that you don’t want.
