You must make a decision now and in our opinion, these are the options you will face:
ASK A DEVELOPER TO CREATE A WEB FROM SCRATCH
This normally means a developer offers you a "custom CMS" or "tailor-made website" and although this might sound like a good idea, for a simple project this is normally a very bad idea. This means you will depend on the coding and designing skills of ONE PERSON and any change, update or fix will depend on that person. If this person is not available, another coder will have to take his place and this new programmer might find the site really badly made or simply doesn't understand it well... it's all very complicated for a simple website.
This approach is more suitable for very big companies and those never hire ONE PROGRAMMER, they normally hire many or directly an agency.
DIY: DO IT YOURSELF SERVICES
There are several systems out there like "1to1", " Squarespace" and many other web services of the kind that allow you to buy a site and mange it yourself from A to Z. These are great if you only need a site to show around, and you don't mind much about positioning your content in Search Engines (SEO) or having a site that looks a bit personalised.
The advantages are that the prices are low and the site looks ok to show it around. The fact is that many of our customers come to us after after spending hundreds of euros and a lot of time in one of those sites... the usual complaint is that the site was too "square" it was very difficult or impossible to escale the site or introduce custom developments.
CUSTOM SITE MADE BY AN AGENCY
This is the best choice always, but is the most expensive. A custom designed and constructed website normally has a higher price tag (starting at 2.000€) but the result is exactly what you wanted.
This is a service we provide as well.
A CUSTOMISABLE TEMPLATE
This is what we offer you through the THIS CO. website. Here you will have to choose between the best three CMS in the market (Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress). Study all your options and get the best offer. This is the smartest choice.
