ChurchSites CMS vs. Open Source
If you are considering an open source CMS, just keep these items in mind as you evaluate all of your options:
- Set-up costs still apply with open source - you will pay someone for their time to design and set-up your site and whatever open source applications they provide for you. The ChurchSites CMS set-up will most likely cost significantly less.
- Development costs for customizations - you will still pay someone to modify your open source solution to meet your desired functionality. Development customizations to the ChurchSites CMS will most likely cost significantly less.
- Website Design Costs - you will pay someone for their time to modify some template you purchase or to develop a totally custom design. Our Standard Template Designs are included in our set-up costs and you can get virtually any design you want for only an additional $499.00.
- Support and Service for your website - you will pay someone for their time to help you with content issues and questions regarding your site. Many organziations end up paying thousands of extra dollars a year for website design and application support. This does not include their monthly hosting fee. ChurchSites offers all of our clients a comprehensive Support package which includes Free Weekly Training and ongoing website maintenance support. If you have any kind of issue or question on managing your content, we are there to help you get it done.
