DSS is the absolute best solution out there¿by far. I know Wordpress, or even Wix, Weebly and SquareSpace can seem tempting with their low price and advertised ease of use, but they're not even in the same ballpark as DSS. Apples to oranges? Try Ferraris to clown cars.

Wix, Weebly, SquareSpace and even WordPress (to an extent) are created for aesthetics. To someone who just wants a "pretty website," they're just fine. But to business owners who are serious about increasing their online visibility, traffic, user engagement, and¿ultimately¿sales, DSS has no competition.

Most platforms only take price (i.e., cheap: Remember, you get what you pay for) and aesthetics into consideration, while DSS takes the final, most important piece into consideration as well: search engines.

DSS websites are not only gorgeous to the outside observer, but are also built with search engine-friendly code that makes your site attractive to both users and search engines alike. Because what good is a pretty site if nobody can find it?

Add in the extra time you gain by having everything you need in one platform, the extra security you gain due to the fact that DSS is HIPAA compliant, and the extra joy you gain by having an OUTSTANDING customer service team that will walk you through any questions you have, and you have the ultimate business-building, sales-supporting, sanity-keeping platform.

Pros

What's not to love??? We have built many websites in WordPress and get so sick of the archaic backend. Want to add content? It's difficult. Want to add a photo? Good luck. Want to add a video? Even worse, except add in the fact that all of that media will slow down your site as well.

In DSS, everything is easier than I could ever imagine. I want to spend every moment in DSS and never update another WordPress site ever again!!!

And let's not forget about the fact that in DSS, there's no need for plugins. There's no need for you to ever go to outside social media or search engine analytics sites, because that information is built right in! Need a CRM system like Insightly or SalesForce? No need; that's in DSS too! And want to send out emails? You guessed it: already in DSS and already integrated to work with your website pages & forms, CRM, analytics.

Simply, DSS is the best platform there is, and you're insane not to use it. (Unless you're our competitor; in that case, stay on WordPress.)

Cons

Doesn't currently integrate with Insightly.

Advice to Others

I have been using DSS since 2004 when I first created my website with Foster Web Marketing. DSS allows you the ability to make instant changes to your website without the need to wait for a webmaster do it for you..

I can add articles on the fly.
I can add blog posts.
I can immediately publish an e-mail newsletter.

I can add videos, photographs and anything else I can think of.
I can add PDFs.
I can optimize my articles quickly and without the need for any coding.

I can share my content on social media using DSS.
I can schedule when I want my content to go live.
I can add anything to my website with ease and just as easily, delete any page or link on my site in seconds.

DSS is a simple, straightforward and very powerful tool that every website owner should have.
It has a great set of analytics connected to Google analytics.

DSS allows me the ability to write content on a daily basis to help my consumers and potential clients get information that they need and want to know.

I still know attorneys who have to wait weeks to communicate with their webmaster in order to update their website and make changes. DSS allows you to avoid all that nonsense and get it done instantly. Without hassle. With out a huge learning curve.

My law firm has used Foster Web Marketing's DSS software product for several years. It's a valuable tool which enables us to update the content of our website, to include adding case results, client testimonials, and practice area additions. It's flexible - we can log in and create website updates from any location, and when our schedule permits. Notably, it's allowed us to take control of our website. It's really an integral part of my firm's online presence.

Prior to partnering with Foster Web Marketing to build our law firm's website, I knew absolutely nothing about the "back end" of a website. I had never built one, or managed one. After just a few monthly phone calls, I am incredibly excited that we are able to manage our website 100% in house if we so choose. DSS is magnificently intuitive. It is concise and simple, yet produces a professional and effective website. I can honestly say that my experience with DSS has been easier and much more enjoyable than my experience with programs such as Word Press that are marketed to amateurs like me. With the unique search features in DSS, I'm able to access any section of our site for edits and, in the rare instance that I can't figure it out on my own, the DSS Q&A section or their customer service team are a quick click or call away. The DSS team will equip you to take control of your own website and content. It won't take hours a day for you to keep things running smoothly. We are so pleased and plan to use DSS and Foster Web for many, many more years.

Since 2007, I've owned a company that coaches and consults with doctors to market and grow their practices. I've worked with DSS and Foster Web Marketing from the beginning. DSS has no peer in professional practice marketing. It is so comprehensive and detailed. It is designed to make web marketing accessible and understandable. They have simply thought of everything. And since day one, they have picked up the phone and worked with my team to make DSS even better. Simply the best in my opinion, and I've seen them all.

We work with multiple clients on their Internet marketing projects and Foster Web Marketing is who we recommend if someone is looking for a new website. Their DSS software makes getting and understanding the metrics (what's working and why) the easiest of any CMS that we have ever worked with. In addition, they monitor the websites and are always current with updates. In a world where most webmasters are hard to get a hold of and have issues with customer service, Foster Web Marketing is a breath of fresh air!

As the owner of a Virtual Administrative Assistant company (www.virtualsolutions4you.com), many of my small business clients use DSS on a daily basis. I have been assisting clients with their marketing using this software since 2008.

Foster Web Marketing has been improving this software since the beginning. As my clients request new features, Foster Web has added them to the software to make it even more user friendly. The improvements in the software have established this marketing tool as one of the most used by my clients. The customer service is outstanding! Any problem that is encountered is fixed very quickly.

I recommend any of my clients that are not currently using this to make the switch. I anticipate that we will be partners in marketing for a very long time! I cannot say enough about this amazing software!

I have been a Foster Web Marketing customer using the DSS for almost 10 years now. I don't even know where to begin or how to describe how great this product is.

The best part about the Foster Web Marketing DSS is that I don't really have to know much about "SEO,", "headline tags", social media, etc in order to be very successful with it.

There was a day when I did know about all that stuff but seems to me it changes every 4 weeks or so. DSS takes care of me NOT having to keep up with the technology of the Internet in order to keep a highly successful website (BenGlassLaw.com) not only "up and running" but powered to the top of search for my practice area in my geographic location.

So, as they say.. "if a lawyer can do it...."
