Nice to meet you!My name is Ryan Smith and I have been working with RapidWeaver since late 2005. After 2 years with RapidWeaver, I began offering one-on-one training with RapidWeaver users, and then in the Spring of 2008 I began RapidWeaver Classroom as a means of reaching more RapidWeaver users.
I am fully committed to RapidWeaver as my exclusive web design tool, and I truly believe it offers the best combination of quality, affordability, usability, flexibility, support and commitment from developers and its incredible community of users. I have created over 30 individual websites -- all using RapidWeaver, and it is undoubtedly a professional website-creation application.
Why RapidWeaver?I believe strongly in RapidWeaver because it is an application that is accessible to people of all ages and levels of technical experience. I started with RapidWeaver as a very novice website developer, and not only did RapidWeaver make it easy for me to accomplish my goals, but it actually made me want to learn more about the world of website design.
The value RapidWeaver provides is unparalleled. Take a small business owner, for example, who could easily spend $3000 on a basic, outsourced website. After the website is completed and published online, the business owner continues to update the content at a rate of $75 per hour. This was the exact dilemma I personally faced when I began looking to start my own small business. As a small business owner, RapidWeaver provides you with the ability to create and maintain your own website. The cost is very minimal in comparison to the example above, and there is great satisfaction in creating a website yourself.
