First you need to figure out how much you want to spend, how experienced you are in web page design and how much time you wish to spend building your web page. Once we answer these questions then we can start looking at different web page design programs.
There are number of different web page design program out there for you to look at:
A web page design program that comes with your internet service provider, MSN, Yahoo, AOL or of the other profile type sites are available at no cost. These web page design programs are pretty easy to use but the come with some drawbacks as well. If you use one of these to build your web page you will run into limitations on how you can modify your page and you’ll have advertisements on your page that you have no control over.
Another type of web page design program is your full fledge HTML Editor. These types of web page design programs include programs like Coffee Cup HTML Editor, Front Page and Dreamweaver. Now these programs will allow you to do just about anything you are capable of but they require experience building web pages and even though they include visual editors you can still have problems building your web page if you don’t know what you’re doing.
There is another kind of web page design program, this type of program is a cross between the very basic type of editor provided by your internet service provider and the full fledge HTML editor. It’s a step-by-step, point and click web page design program turns creating web sites, landing pages, affiliate pre-sell pages, mini-sites, sales pages and blog headers into child’s play.
This type of web page design program is designed to help the novice web page developer build professional web pages in a short period of time. What really makes this web page design program flexible is the fact that it’s advanced enough that even professional web designers will find it valuable in building their web pages, with plenty of tools to build professional sites.
If you’re building your web page to show your friends and family a little about you the any of these web page design program will work for you, but if you’re building a web page to sell a product or service or use as an Google AdSense site then you will need one of the later two.
I’ve used all the different types of web page design programs over the years and still use 3 different programs for various purposes but more and more I’m using the point and click type web page design program, it saves me time and still allows me to create professional web pages.
