Powerful, intuitive applications like Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Docs can help reduce your IT costs and help employees collaborate more effectively – all for just $50 per user per year.


Website Editor that Lets You Put Anything Anywhere on the Screen.

29 Jul

I’m sure many webmasters would laugh at this editor, but honestly when I have a customer that MUST HAVE THAT SINGLE “D . T” RIGHT THERE, then this is my fall back editor.

I’ve found that many Chamber of Commerce executives appreciate SIMPLICITY and when it comes to website editing it is really important.

Homestead.Com was purchased by Intuit several years ago and made many solid improvements from the ten years I have been a customer.

Unless you are a very small Chamber of Commerce, I would not recommend this as a full website builder.  But for additional pages that your main website can link too, or for custom event website pages with lots of beautiful graphics that must be placed just right… this makes it easy for anyone.
