  • “It’s so much hassle and expense updating the web site that I just don’t bother anymore…”
  • “My web site is like a brochure, going out of date the minute it is published…”

If you have an online business or you plan to have one or have asked the above questions, then you know that the success of your site greatly depends on your site’s popularity. The problem lies in managing the content as well as the design aspects of your site. To do this, you should opt for a CMS-based site.
