Why pay an hourly charge?

It always starts well. When you're in the honeymoon period of a new website, everything works great.

But then someone wants to change some text. Or show off an image of a new customer project. Or change the logo.

From there problems can begin. Depending on your arrangement with your web designer you may well be paying an hourly charge to get these small changes made.

There are two ways round this: either work out a maintenance agreement so costs are planned for, or invest in a website that you can edit yourself.

For the second option, we would refer to this as a CMS or Content Management System. A CMS allows you to go in and make changes to the website as you wish. You can edit text, upload and insert images, create new content and pages, and run the website yourself. You can also create other users if you need other people to do this for you.

There is generally a higher up-front cost associated with this route but it pays itself back very quickly once you work out what the amendments are going to cost you.

There are a whole range of CMS tools out there. At Light Speed we use Sitefinity CMS, a flexible and powerful CMS that gives you a wide selection of options and features to make your website do what you want.
