Alternative to Web Site Templates and Design Software

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 HTML, CSS, JavaScript, CGI or Plug-ins. Really, if you can use e-mail or 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, WritersContent.

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 access.

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 anyway.
