It’s a good idea to give the above points some thought before you approach a web designer because they will be able to give you a realistic quote and once the design begins, you will have all your content and images ready for the site.
Sure you can do it yourself. It may take you eight hours to learn how, and you may need to buy Dream Weaver for $200. Then you may find that you have some rank looking photos because you don’t know how to adjust them, so you take a few more hours to learn how to do that. Now you need a copy of Adobe Photoshop which will cost you another $699. Okay so you did it yourself. You designed a three page site all by yourself and it only cost you: $200 + 20hours x $10.00fd + $699 that is $1,000.00 and your site still looks like a kid created it.

Another common internet home business opportunity is building websites, and then figuring out how you can monetize them. The downside of this opportunity is that you will need to know a bit about cheap website design, search engine optimization, and other technical details. But just like anything else, you can learn these skills as you go along. The main benefit of building websites is that if you can drive enough traffic to them you can really cash in big time. There are thousands of websites that provide their owners with a nice income day in and day out. And not only can you do this job from home, after you get established you can cut your hours as well.
Keep it simple: This tip is probably one of the most valuable ones you will come across and one that every web designer will tell you. If you are looking to have a sleek, clean and stylish logo, then it would do you good to keep it simple. This way, your logo will look great.
So as you can see there are a few ways to build value to your site and how the web design rates can be worth it. But sidenote: you don’t need to be spending thousands of dollars for a great web design. It can actually come from a web theme or template that you can sometimes get for free, if you are willing to spend some time yourself, or spend for a web designer to tweak a customizable theme. That alone can give you the value you need and the simple design options that are available.
