If you're interested in having a website done, you'll need to endure my soapbox and read below:
I've done several websites in the past using Dreamweaver, iWeb, and FrontPage, (so that last one dates me,) but now I'm changing course.
Too often I see horrible websites for small businesses. Most are older sites created during the "blogging days" as it was a means to avoid the HTML software and maintain it themselves. Then came Facebook. <sigh> Neither are better options than a website. I don't want to be TEXT heavy so I won't list them all here!
In my humble opinion, a website is a reflection of your company/services. If you're behind in technology, they may assume you are behind in other areas as well. It's often their FIRST point of contact with your business. How do you present?
END OF SPEECH
I meet with the customer to figure out their limitations and comfort level before deciding which direction to go. For that reason, I now only use WIX. You can maitain your domain and still get the flexibility to make easy updates and changes yourself, or spend a few dollars a month having me maintain it. I'm sure serious SEO focused web design firms don't appreciate my opinion about simplicity. And there are reasons a business may need to spend THOUSANDS of dollars on a website, (imperative SEO/heavy retail) but if you just need to have a small website and presence on Google, then let's sit down and talk. CONTACT ME HERE.
Below are a few sites (there is usually a few presently being worked on, and several not listed due to privacy settings but these are all WIX sites I've either developed new, or redesigned. Also further below is an example of the differences between 2 BLOG style websites, and a matching email campaign for one of them. You'll see the designs are VERY flexible and unique. 1 Landing page, or SEVERAL pages deep. You can have whatever your little heart desires!
