I've currently got my site built using an ISP's "website builder package" and tbh it's just too clunky, I can't tweak the bits I want to tweak and the blog is awful.
Can any of you give me an indication of what you might charge to set up a Joomla site covering (currently) 8 content pages and 1 blog page which is going to be easy for me to maintain? I would also be possibly considering accepting visa/mastercard payments.
Please PM me with your site/examples/prices please.
I don't know about Joomla, but have you thought about using Wordpress? There are plenty of website companies that will build you a Wordpress website and then it's pretty easy to use Wordpress to keep it up to date.
I was let down by the website designer that I originally commissioned (never ask a friend to help you with business stuff, even if you're paying them!) so I bought a template and then built my own website.
Are you using wordpress on their domain or have you transferred it to your own?
In my line of work I think it's just too "unprofessional" to have a webaddress such as www.alpinepony.wordpress.com.
I could get the hang of Joomla - I'm a software engineer by trade - but it's going to cost me so much "time", that I'm better off paying someone else for their time - and I'm not a graphic designer by any means, so again, I think I'm better off paying for someone's expertise.
I was hoping a fellow mn'er would jump at the chance!
