In our case, we are very lucky by having a good friend who specializes in everything IT. By working with him, he set up the overall shell of the website, and has allowed me to fill in the pieces, taking less than a week. You read that right, less than a week, and that is spending only a couple hours a day.
The main benefit by being able to work on the website yourself you have the benefit of making changes whenever you need to. In other situations you are relying on another party to update your site, and most likely charge you a fee to do so. When done the right way, you can update multiple pages of your site to reflect your changes in a matter of a couple minutes.
The point of this blog post is to get the message out that before you go spending very large sums of money on revamping your website, do your own research. This stuff is not rocket science. If you would like any help or suggestions feel free to contact us first.
