But how is that different from anyone else?
Traditional Web development is built around what is called static HTML.
And static is exactly what it is.
In the traditional, static design approach, organizations typically contracted a Webmaster to design a few pages of text about the organization, with some pictures and a contact email address mixed in.
Usually, the Website was out-of-date before the Webmaster even managed to deliver it. And the organization receiving the site often had to live with the out-of-date information. Most non-profits and businesses simply don't have anyone on staff who can code HTML well enough to keep a site fresh.
It is commonplace to find Websites for good, solid businesses and non-profit organizations that haven't been updated in several years. This lamentable fact turns off potential customers and supporters alike.
But in addition to being hard to keep up-to-date, static HTML is also severely limited in what it can offer.
eNewsletters? Mailing lists? Membership in the site with custom permissions? Photo galleries? Downloads? Podcasts?
Static HTML simply can't provide any of those things. And so, many businesses and non-profits just had to live without them or spend a large amount of money on serious custom development.
A more advanced alternative to Static HTML is some framework like ASP. You've probably heard about that technology. ASP is a method that can be used to build really interesting Web pages will all kinds of great capabilities. The same can be said of Flash.
ASP and Flash-based sites can do great things, and ASP sites can even be designed to let non-technical people update them.
Problem? Cost. Major cost. Full ASP or Flash systems can run tens of thousands of dollars.
Both ASP and Flash cost a lot of money.
Corfun, however, uses a Content Management System named Joomla to develop Websites.
Content Management Systems (CMS) like Joomla have changed all the rules for Web design and are making high-tech solutions affordable for all size organizations.
A CMS is an Open Source application which is developed and available for free. Because Corfun doesn't have to license this software, we can afford to offer robust, powerful Websites for a very reasonable cost. Solutions from CorFun start at a very reasonable $1,500.00, with a convenient monthly payment plan option available.
For the price many charge for static pages, you can have a powerful Website that includes powerful features like blogging, discussion forums, and podcasting that is still simple enough for a non-technical person to work with.
And we even include training! All Websites by Corfun offer training to teach employees of the client organization how to update and keep the site fresh.
Not interested in learning? No problem. The power of the Content Management System lets us sell inexpensive maintenance packages to allow us to keep your site updated!
