Get a quote from a web developer and you can easily spend a few thousand pounds developing even a basic web presence, without an e-store, connection to your local database and other advanced features. For this reason, many smaller companies are attempting to put their own site online, and maintaining the contents, rather than employing someone full-time or the use of an external web development team. The snag is, how do you get started?
NetObjects Fusion Essentials is a free version of the commercial web design tool. You pick the template you want to use, then start working on the pages. Once you are happy with the results and have previewed the content, you can then publish live on your own server or remote web space. There are alternatives. If you have a Mac, take a look at Rapidweaver which will enable you to produce a fantastic-looking site, based on a number of pre-designed templates.
