Have you been wanting your own Web site but didn't know where to begin? Or don't know HTML? Or don't feel you have a talent for this type of thing?
You're not alone in that boat. 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, thanks to a new online resource I no longer have to hassle with any of that! (Can you see me smiling? No? Well, imagine it because I am!) QuickSites, designed and hosted by Pixelmation Internet Technologies, is a simple, affordable way for ANYONE to have a professional, quality Web 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 - Hosting - AnyWhere WebMail - Visitor Traffic Reporting - 24/7 access all included at no additional cost.
I love this easy new way to build my own new site. It just might be a great alternative for you, too. Definitely worth a peek anyway.
