Which platform is right for you?
In order to get affordable small business website design you need to select a website platform that allows for turn-key solutions. Some of the best platforms include DotNetNuke, Hubspot and Wordpress. Each one of these platforms has it's own strengths and weakness, but they're all scalable and will reduce the cost of creating a professional website as opposed to building a website based on other technologies. The determining factor in selecting DotNetNuke, Hubspot or Wordpress depends on your current and future requirements. Let's examine these platforms in more detail.
DotNetNuke is an open source (FREE) content management system based on Microsoft's ASP.net technology. It's been around a long time and has a huge community of supporters. Since it's release in 2002, it's continued to evolve and today offers website designers and developers one of the most robust web development platforms available on the market today. We've built hundreds of website's on DotNetNuke and have yet to encounter requirements that could not be met by using DotNetNuke.
You can easily create pages, manage users, setup security, and integrate custom programming solutions at a fraction of the cost of comparable solutions. In addition, there are a host of modules available on the marketplace that make DotNetNuke one of the most attractive small business website design platforms.
Hubspot is an oustanding all in one marketing solution built on DotNetNuke. If your goal is Inbound Marketing then Hubspot is the ideal solution for you. With Hubspot you can build your website, create landing pages, optimize your website, setup lead nurturing campaigns and monitor your competitors. Because it's an integrated web and marketing solution you simply cannot beat the ease of use provided by Hubspot. Hubspot is not free but it's well worth the money if you're serious about internet marketing.
Wordpress is an affordable small business website design platform that originated as a blogging tool. Since it's inception it has morphed into a fully functional, flexible, small business website design solution. It's easy to setup and maintain and there are hundreds if not thousands of plug-ins available in the marketplace.
Although Wordpress is a wonderful solution is does have some limitations. For example, if your business requirements are such that you need to manage users or security roles then DotNetNuke the platform of choice. Why? Because Wordpress was never intended to be a web development application whereas DotNetNuke was created from the ground up as a robust platform designed to handle enterprise business requirements. If you're unsure of future business requirements then choose DotNetNuke. You won't have to worry about redesigning your website due to the limitations of your current affordable small business website design solution.
