Let's say you own a small business that manufactures fashion accessories from indigenous materials. You'd like to exhibit your products on the World Wide Web to broaden your market, but you can't be bothered to learn the nuances of creating and maintaining a website.
There are free content management, e-commerce, and blogging tools out there, which become very easy to use once you get the hang of them. However, without having someone to customise the templates, your site can end up looking just like everybody else's. Technically, that's not a problem. But from a marketing perspective, this may not be a good thing.
So wouldn't it be great if you just had a guy who takes care of your site for you? For around twenty-thousand Pesos per year *, you can have me as your off-the-office webmaster. I'll program your site, have it hosted by a reliable third-party service provider, and be ready to receive further instructions from you regarding content updates.
