Why choose a Joomla! expert?
The Joomla! content management system is like a pocket knife. In the hands of an expert, Joomla! can do a thousand things. But give a pocket knife to a child, and everything changes.
A child doesn't understand how you can use a pocket knife to perform regular, helpful functions like cutting fruit or opening letters. The chances of a kid finding and correctly using the knife's more advanced features, like its handy-dandy screwdriver, leather puncher, or can opener, are slim. Pocket knives are essential tools with a million creative uses - but to a child, they're either useless or (if the child opens the knife) dangerous!
Clearly, a powerful tool in the wrong hands loses its power.
Because Joomla! offers the potential to customize websites, you want to find a Joomla! expert who can tap into all of its power. A Joomla! expert with a deep, complex understanding of the Joomla! content management system (CMS) will ultimately provide the highest return on your investment. If you hire a beginner, you'll get a mediocre final product, but if you hire an expert, the outcome will be a site created for and customized to be exactly the type of website you want!

- "Get" the mindset of an Internet user/search engine user
- Sport a robust Joomla! portfolio of various types of websites in many different industries
- Provide customer support by phone and email (in case you have issues with Joomla! or any problems that arise)
- Offer a price quote within your budget
