  1. We are using WowWay for our company website currenlty, although the front page is very well designed, the blog and the other pages could be improved.

    We all know that the best way to create a website is to hire a designer and a programmer. But that’s very expensive and you can’t expect to give that much money at once. It could cost you as much as 5 figures. Then we can dumb it down. You can learn programming, you can use WordPress or you can use a website builder. There are many options. It’s up to you. Whether WP is the best depends on what you are looking to build. If you are willing to let go of a bit of flexibility, then you are good to go.
