The vast majority of small and medium sized businesses do not have the in-house expertise to design and develop a website that has all the functionality they need, whether this is offering online retailing, an online discussion forum, or adding new blocks of content when needed. How many times as a potential customer have you moved from a site in frustration, because it is just too difficult to navigate around it?
Dealing with all these situations depends on the Content management system, or CMS that is used on a website. There are many available, but the majority of the professional website design specialists use Drupal web design for their CMS. The reason for this is its remarkable flexibility. It was not developed with any one function in mind, but with the in-built capability of creating whatever functionality was required, whether using flash animation, uploading images, blogging, e-commerce, an online forum or creating user profiles.
Another advantage is that the Drupal CMS has a huge range of open source modules to download, so that modifications of either individual pages or whole blocks of content, as well as adding functionality, are all relatively straightforward. Many businesses may start with a particular style of website, or a small range of products or services, then find that their customer base has grown and the demand for items has also expanded. This may mean that the website is no longer suitable, especially if an e-commerce system is now required. Step forward Drupal to the rescue!
1websitedesigner has taken this a stage further and has introduced a demo Drupal site at http://www.websitedesigndrupal.com where you can log on and practice developing your own site, or modifying it using the different modules. This is invaluable, as you have the opportunity to try out different themes, without risking an unwanted change causing problems with the live website.
Whilst the initial design and development of anything other than a very simple website is best left to the experts, it is comforting to know that ongoing changes to reflect your growing business are safely within your control and budget with Drupal web design.
