Websites made easy

What shape is your website in? Is it old and tired? HTML code written years ago and just added on as needed? Some of it works and some of it doesn’t? Do you still have a FLASH intro page that takes forever to load?

You want to fix it but the original  insert from the following list –

web master or

web developer or

web programmer or

just some guy you knew or

an employee who was curious and offered to do it for free or

you 

is insert from the following list 

not living in town anymore or

charging too much money or

dosen’t have the time or 

no longer working for you

or is not doing that anymore

or lost the passwords to the site.

I’m not sure if you noticed but my websites are Blogs. Why? They are quick to set up, are easy to maintain, easy to update and are low cost.

Here is a website/blog I set up for one of the local associations I belong to: “Red Deer Sportsman Show“. Jeff, the show manager, called me one evening, emailed me some info and two days later the website was live. It would have been sooner, but I was busy in meetings most of the first day. It costs less than $100 a year to keep live and I can update it daily while I have my morning coffee. When the time comes, Jeff or someone else can update it easily since they don’t need to be a ‘webmaster or developer or programmer or . . .”.

Blogs are easy to use and most importantly are:

  • current and up-to-date, I wrote this post this morning and it took me about 40 minutes
  • rich with text and
  • pictures deanand
  • links and
  • video
    and
  • audio
  • They can be subscribed to, BRASScast RSS syndication free subscription, so when you update any information on the blog your audience  (or customers) will be notified. A regular website can get bookmarked and forgotten. Real Simple Syndication or RSS seems to go on forever.
  • And your blog post can be sent out to portable players like iPods, MP3 players, blackberry’s and cell phones. Does your old web site do that?

Don’t get me wrong, a full-blown website when done properly is a very powerful tool. With the NEW web development and publishing technologies you can build some great content management and user interface systems. But if you don’t have the time or the money…go with a blog site. You can also have the best of both worlds – a traditional website and a blogsite. A website for static information and the blogsite as a dynamic source for information.

BRASSmedia can help you break free from those old HTML blues . . .
