"Creating a simple site is not easy. Each part must be carefully selected."
Its free, has a lot of support, is easy to use (training is recommended), works in a browser though Chrome is best (no download required) and integrates with many Google products.
You will get up to 5 pages, a premade contact form (if you like) and a simple, attractive design.
Yes it can with planning. Add more pages and content, integrate other Google products or even update the theme.
A simple site can be done within a few days up to a week. I can work as fast as you an respond to my inquiries and get website content to me. I won't start the job until I have everything to begin work.
I charge by the hour. See the pricing page. Prices will vary by the site.
The more elaborate the site, the more time the job takes. To save money keep page content and page layout simple, don't make a lot of site change requests and keep the website design simple.
Once I have all the job information, a price quote can be given. I'll try to work within your budget.
If you have a very limited budget, I might be able to create a site with less pages, a simpler design and no form, for example.
I offer training for each website I build. As long as the site is kept simple and you learn how to use Google Sites, you can manage it yourself.
