website – need to migrate to one simpler to update
Our non-profit has a website. The member who designed it from scratch is retiring from group and he uses Adobe Dreamweaver and other software to update site. We need to have a site that is easier to maintain and less costly. Your recommendation?
Well, there are a few considerations. Namely, do you use your site to collect donations, publish schedules of events or calendars, collect contact emails, or have any other functional needs? All of these can be handled by much simpler, low-cost site builder platforms like WordPress, Weebly, and Wix. WordPress is always my go-to recommendation. It does have a learning curve, but it’s not too difficult to learn, plus you can find a lot of low-cost pros to help you get started — that’s why it powers more than half of the world’s websites. The other two, Weebly and Wix are simpler to learn, but in the long run, WordPress gives you by far the most functionality so you won’t have to migrate again to add a functional need.
