I designed my own site. Got some advice on optimizing the site and received numerous jobs from it. Well over $100K in the first year alone! A well designed website without search engine optimization is a waste of money. Remember, your site should load quickly. You have 8 seconds to keep your prospects attention. My site has been up since 1/5/07 and I have had over 10,000 hits! Now you tell me...should you have a website???
