I used these guys. If you are looking for a simple, nice looking, affordable site, I would recommend them. Paid $300 for my site. check it out. If you use them, tell them I sent you their way, and I'll get a referral check.

good luck.

Man they are crazy cheap. Are they completely finished with that site? If they are they goofed... nothing bad for you, but sucks for them... the links on the very bottom do not link to their site, but to the page you are already one... they are missing out on search engine page rank and lead generating opportunities.

Still though, crazy cheap and looks good. I do freelance work for locals out here and my minimum is 3 times that amount.

Yea, it really depends on how much you are willing to spend. Do you have a ballpark figure?

Was the $300 a one time fee? Or do you have to pay a monthly fee as well?

it was a one time fee.

However, I did also purchase an add-on CMS, which allows me to edit the site from here on out. That was an additional $150.

Personally Josh, I think your site looks pretty nice. They must have fixed the links on the bottom because they worked for me. I didn't spend a lot of time looking at it but even the meta tags look pretty good. Nice design and layout, good text. A few more photos might be good but all in all for what you paid you got your moneys worth and more.

Did you buy the domain and hosting? Or did they?

I purchased the domain and the hosting through InMotion Hosting. Somebody sent me an email yesterday about Vividstream Designs. I spoke with them and they are offering the following for $1000. I had her send me a written quote:

Company Information, Tips, Services with Descriptions, Testimonials, Photo area, Contact area, Shopping Cart, CMS (Content Management System) if it all works out the way planned the newsletter and signup.
Vividstream Inc., offers 1 year of free hosting with new and Redesigned web sites, We also Include Basic SOE for free. (Search Engine Optimization) This is up to you if you would like to host with our company.

Jeez, any more solicitations for work?

Its kind of funny the company d4u website designers has 28 errors in there code:nono:

That is the sign of a "designer" not a coder. People who know the code take the care to validate it. Probably 95% of the "web designers" out there wouldn't know how to code a page from scratch. Therefore, you get what you pay for .... or not in some cases.
