Should you update your web site yourself?

Got the Time?

Updating a web site is time-consuming and requires technical knowledge and a skill set that is used often enough to gain proficiency in handling web material.

Got a Well-Equipped, Fast Computer?

If you enjoy spending time behind a computer and have the time to learn web updating skills such as writing, photo editing, formatting and file transfer, then you might be a good candidate to update your own website.

Got the Patience?

If you don’t have a well-equipped computer or lack the time or patience to learn how to update your own web site, you might want to save yourself time, money and aggravation by having us handle your web updates to keep your site looking professional and searching well.
