PS. Went to click on the link to Facebook shown on your site, how nice, it took me to Wix's facebook page...

So what? Not everyone can be some master web designer, and surely no one can afford these rates some of the web designers ask for. I've seen "custom built" sites go well into the thousands.

Cheap investment compared to roi

I'd argue no one can afford to buy a $13k ztr. But everyone buys them like candy

Depending on what content management system you choose.....READ & TEACH yourself.....That will bring in THOUSANDS over time.

No time to read and teach yourself? I guess your business is not worth it then

doesn't matter if you're building your own site or paying to have it done. You need something that will attract the people looking for what you offer and you need to convert those lookers to buyers. There's no reason someone building their own site can't learn those tactics that'll give them those results.

What do you charge per hour for your services, VacaValley? I'll hang up and listen.

You can have the #1 ranked site, but if it's not built to convert, #2 is going to enjoy the hell out of catching the people you don't engage.

I agree about having a professional, well tuned website, i think its a "must" to advertise without hurting yourself, but im not going to sit here and harass someone else for their site. I guess i should have simply said "Lay off the guy atleast its not your website"

Ok, i'm sorry it seems my computer has failed me. I did not get to see the very first post, so my argument is just incredibly flawed now my apologizes! It is a catchy name, but now after getting to SEE the website, yeah... thats pretty bad man. Not appealing to the eyes, as for using Wix meh its whatever to me. Do as you wish with your own business, because if you fail, we snatch it up ;P
