I always have people asking me if I know of anybody who can build them a website which is affordable but also professional looking. They want the website to be search engine friendly, there is no point in having a website if no one can see it, and fully optimised.
I am sure there are many people looking for something similar. In my opinion you should not have to spend a lot of money for such a service.
With such a lot of people now offering web design and optimisation services in the UK, there are bound to be some good deals to be found. In reality you should be able to have your website built for between £50 and £100.
The question is where do you find these great deals?
These are the areas I would try:
search engines such as Google
internet auction websites such as ebay
shop window advertisements
asking family and friends
If you are willing to spend a bit of time, making lots of phone calls and sending lots of e-mails you will soon find the right web design quote.
It is not just the cost that is important however. There is no point accepting a quote of £20 per website if the site will be of poor quality and not search engine friendly. It is therefore advisable to look at the person or companies portfolio and see if you like their previous work. I always look to see the page rank of the sites they have previously built and run a few searches on the key phrases relevant to each website.
