With the struggling US economy, many businesses have had to implement steps to curb expenses and pinch pennies. One of the first areas to feel these cutbacks is the web site design and development group. Employees have been asked to fill roles previously held by other employees due to staff reductions. At the same time, these remaining employees are expected to execute robust and efficient mechanisms for their corporate web sites on a tight or non-existent budget. Developers and designers are looking for shortcut tools to get there. It's all about getting more bang for the buck. Web design on a Shoestring is the tool these web site developers and designers need. It reveals all sorts of free or inexpensive resources that are available but unknown. More specifically, Carrie Bickner shows you how any individual can do the things a team of web professionals are often brought in to do. Learn how to create a pennywise plan so that you avoid being nickled and dimed to death later. Find out the best ways to test your web sites efficiencies and functionalities. Understand the most effective content management systems, and the commercial products to use or avoid - all with no dollars being spent.

i love the no-nonsense approach of this book. it's short and sweet and tells you exactly what you need to know to create good, accessible websites on a small budget. plus, it's written by a librarian who knows what's she writing about. Read full review

Review: Web Design on a Shoestring

User Review  - February Four - Goodreads

I guess I was expecting more of a how-to than I got. This book is better for people who do this for a living, have a tiny budget dropped on them, and have to figure out what to do. It's NOT for people like me, who just want to work on a small site on my own time for my own purposes. Read full review
