If you're going to go to the trouble of creating a presence on the web, why not build your site using the leading content management system? Drupal is a powerful, open-source CMS with a vibrant community working constantly to grow the platform and trouble-shoot security issues. The beauty of Drupal, lies in the ability for your site to grow in sophistication as you need it without expensive and time-consuming rebuilds.
I will be with you from site concept to launch and beyond. Critical site maintenance is handled as security issues arise. Non-security upgrades are handled weekly. Once launched, it is typically very easy to tweak your site to meet changing needs.
Site hosting is available at reasonable rates. In most cases, your first year of hosting can be included in your quote. If your need is short-term, for example a political campaign or special promotion, I can accommodate hosting without requiring an annual contract.
My approach to site design is to create crisp, clean and uncluttered pages that focus attention on your content. It is easy to be lured by flash slideshows, moving Twitter feeds and other geegaws and doodads that only wind up distracting eyes away from the important content you've spent time and money creating. When used sparingly these features can be very effective, but not every site needs moving parts.
I will also be happy to help clean up an existing Drupal site. I know quite a few people who jump into creating their own site just to find out it is a lot more work than uploading software and clicking on a theme. In most cases, I can clean up that mess made by the boyfriend of the daughter of your Uncle's second wife who swore he was an expert at designing web sites.
