How To Build Cheap Simple Websites

Normally, if you want to have professional designers to build a custom site, you must be prepared to dish out at least some dollars, varying from some few hundred dollars to over a thousand dollars, depending on the kind of website and it's functions.

All this can change if you know where to find the best deals, the best designs for the lowest price.

Here's a rough guide:





First, you must understand that it is more or less a rip off if you get expensive companies to design websites for you, unless that is what you want.

Have you ever seen advertisements in newspaper classified ad sections that offer to build a 5-page website at $500?

These companies are established companies with physical locations, therefore they have to increase the amount they charge to pay off some overheads: office rent, designer's wages, advertising costs and so on.

Therefore, it would be wise to find reputable freelance designers who mostly work from home.

These people are often working from home, so they do not have a high operation cost like that of a company.

 On the other hand, they will be able to design images with quality similar to those of designers from big companies, so it's a "no-brainer or gimmick" choice.

However, choose freelancers with care.

The best way to do this would be to go to sites like elance.com, Fiverr.com or even maybe on Apsense.

There, you can post the abstract of your project and get thousands of freelancers to bid on your project, so you will surely get the best deal.

On top of that, you will be able to choose the designers based on their experience, past transactions and ratings, so your value for money is secured.

Another route you can take is to design your website yourself.

Think about it, if you only need 5 simple pages to present some simple information, why waste hundreds of dollars for it?

Just spend a little time to sit down and do it yourself.

You'll be able to design your own sites even if you do not know a single line of HTML code with the help of WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) programs such as Microsoft Frontpage, Macromedia, Wix, Site Build it, Dreamweaver and so on.

 Or easiest of all use the Blogger or Wordpress platforms.

These software platforms are very easy and Cheap to use. Both with advantages and disadvantages.

Have a wonderful day.
