The quick round up of the two options is:
That is the basic logic, and while there may be an appeal towards a CMS that allows you to make endless changes to your site with zero additional costs, there are some hidden costs to consider. The most significant factor that I see overlooked in the though process is staff cost. It would be a rare instance in a small business to have a person that is not already operating at capacity. That said, with the roll out of a new website, to add updating and managing content to some one’s job description. To go along with that, does that person have the skills of writing for the web and the target market.
There are many factors to consider, some not always obvious when assessing the alternatives. Trafffic is available to discuss the options with you and help recommend the best solution for you. We cater to both CMS and maintenance based websites, so from that point of view we are happy to help for any of your needs.
