A "Detailed CMS" is a detailed but inexpensive web design for businesses that are willing to invest some time upfront for setup and a small amount of on-going effort to keep the information current on a monthly or quarterly basis.

Choosing the right CMS is fairly important to get the desired design, and an interface that is easy to use for the owner or employee when they are adding or editing information or links on the site.

✗ Hand code with HTML.
✓ Carefully choose a free or cheap "website builder".
