Before I discovered the concept of Web site templates, I felt woefully
inadequate to build my own site. It was the old "catch-22" where I didn't
have the money to pay to have a site built, I needed a site to make the
money to have a professional site, and without the knowledge of how to
build a site, I had no hope of getting a site.
But even templates took some degree of technical knowledge. I could
get a reasonably priced site for between $40-$75 dollars generally
speaking, but I had to download, mess with it and find a hosting site,
domain name, learn FTP, then upload every change. Ugh! However, I
heard about a new online resource where I no longer have to hassle
with any of that! So I gave it a try...
(Can you see me smiling? No? Well, imagine it because I am!) I found
QuickSites to be a simple, affordable way for ANYONE to have a
professional, quality Web site.
QuickSites are designed to allow anyone on any budget, with any
technical skill level (even no technical skill level!) to have their own
quality Web site. To build a QuickSite, you don't need any knowledge of
a word processor you can use QuickSites. Their live demo is a great
concept, too. I had to sign up and I'm now building my own site,
You can try their demo at http://quicksites.pixelmation.com. Use the
demo log-in information provided to get full, free access. I was very
happy to see it is set up to literally be a "click, type and save" process,
which gives me more time for my writing and marketing focus. Plus,
they're offering Domain name, WebMail, visitor traffic reporting and 24/7
I personally really enjoy this easy new way to build my own new site. It
just might be a great alternative for you, too. Definitely worth a peek
