No worries, I got ya covered.

  • What I use:

    • Joomla

      • I build websites using the content management system called Joomla, the most widely used CMS on the planet (literally).  
      • Because it’s so popular, there are hundreds of extensions that can be installed to add to the functionality to your website, most of them are free, some require a purchase.
      • Using Joomla adds greatly to the potential of your website AND flexibility and options to what you can do with the site.
      •  Don’t want ecommerce now but might want it later?  That’s why Joomla is so great, because you can get a site now and save on cost upfront by NOT having ecommerce, but add it in later using an extension.
      • Plus, it’s free!
    • Rocket Theme

      • Rocket Theme templates for Joomla are the best out there, a few of them are free, but most of them are $50, but it’s worth it. Their structure is the best designed and the easiest to manipulate and adjust for each project.
  • What you get

    • A really well designed website for a one time, low cost fee.
    • Training for:
      • adding unlimited pages
      •  uploading images and inserting to pages
      •  Facebook page integration
      • Keeping site, home page etc... optimized for search engines
    •     * And, hopefully we’ll have some fun along the way.
