You may be asking yourself just what is Drupal, is that even word, what does it mean. Drupal is an Open Source CMS (content management system), now your probably wondering what is a CMS. Simply put a CMS is a backend for your website it allows you to tap in to databases as well as php code. Now your saying yeah whatever what does that mean. What this means for your website is the ability to start from the ground up and build your website step by step.
When you first start thinking about building a website, you may be wondering which is the best way to build your site. Some people may use a designer that can make your site look very appealing however they may miss key elements that bring your website success. Such as, building your site with proper code so that it is search engine friendly allowing Google and the other major search engines to find your site. Other key elements that you may need to evaluate are whether or not you want a blog, or forum, or an e-commerce store. You may be saying, yeah I want an e-commerce store eventually, but I can't afford it right now. Well using Drupal you can build your basic website, and add other features down the road as you need them.
Finding a design and development firm, can be a daunting task. It may seem that everyone you talk to has a yes we can attitude. You may be confused why one firm quoted you $500 for a website and another firm quoted $1500. Sometimes, the $500 quote may get you the better site but be weary to go with the lowest bid as they may be inexperienced and it may take longer than you anticipated. They might not be able to configure every feature the way you envisioned it.
