I ts becoming easier for non-web designers to maintain their own websites. But its been our experience that these things are never as simple and easy as the software box covers claim. Still, with a little spit and polish, you could learn and use a product like Macromedias Contribute, which allows lay people to update their websites.

You may be thinking that it would be cheaper to maintain your own site because then theres no invoice to pay. But do you have the time to learn another piece of software? Cant a trained web designer do it faster than you could? Of course.

And, how much is your time worth? Do you have the time to study software manuals? In the end, would you save any money? And how much is it going to cost you if people feel that your website is anything less than professional?

Your web designer built your site. They know it inside and out. They can get the job done more quickly and effectively.
