Karroll K Alexander, founder of The Alexander K Group hosts these really powerful workshops for public speakers. It was turning into a real pain to have to work though his 'web guy' every time he added a new workshop date.
Several months ago we created a blog for Karroll and his company. After using his blog for a while, Karrol came back to us asking if there was a way he could have the same ease-of-content-management for his website as well.
The top-tier blogging platforms have enough features these days that fulfilling his request was entirely reasonable.
Furthermore, the cost to create a 'blogsite' like this is very low compared to creating a professional-looking website from scratch.
