A.) I don't think you did the best you can do. We've laid out many, basic things for everyone visiting this site. You've done exactly none of them.

B.) You need to stop trying to short-cut everything related to your web site endeavor. I would go back and read through any previous review and apply what you read. They will all be applicable. Every single one of them.

No, it's really not. When it comes to SEO and website usability/marketing techniques, not one thing I do for my clients isn't something they can't do on their own. Not one. There are a couple of members on here who have done amazing things in the last year, on a similar budget as you, simply by paying attention, reading, and implementing what they've learned.

On this sub-forum, we've laid out exactly how to successfully DIY it, you just have to put time and sweat equity in to it. The alternative is to pay someone a not inconsequential amount of money to do it for you.

I think what Tony is trying to say, is that you need to give us more to work with. The site is very thin- it is basically a couple stock photos and maybe 4 paragraphs. Everyone, including Google and your potential clients, would need more than that to make a decision about you.

If you look back at this forum you will see lots of detailed advice. Right now you need to figure out what information should be on your site, what your home page should look like, what info should be on an About page, etc.

Do some reading, add a bunch more content to the site, and then come back. Or- ask specific questions. I am sure that then you will get more help.
