The beauty of frameworks and content management systems, is there are so many of them to choose from. You really need to do your research, and find one with a very simple templating system.
I, personally, have built my own. I've built and rebuilt it a dozen times now, and it is teetering between framework and CMS. I can crank out a nice, fully responsive, easily managed (with point and click editing) website in an evening.
My pricing is considered high to other local "shops" (ie. basement dwelling teenagers, or those who outsource to india).
I compete in the following ways:
- built fast (depending on project scope)
- no templates, every project is custom designed and developed
- complete customizablilty, and purpose built functionality (restricted by budget, of course)
- actual support (email, or telephone)
- hosted on our infrastructure
I will manage every aspect of the site, including content updates, online marketing, and social media.
Although, I will admit, I make more money building (standards compliant) web based applications for medium sized businesses.
