how much is it for someone to do a website that I can upload pictures of work/customers comments too?
I know some people do this on facebook but I don`t want to go on that.
Don`t want to pay the earth.Just something simple.
To include-

Name/Address/Etc
Picture of myself
Portfolio
Work capabilities
Who I contract too

I had a 'professional' design me a website which turned out to be rubbish no flair whatsoever. Didn't even work properly on tablets and smartphones.
I ended up asking him to remove it from the interwave and designed my own using a Wix premium plan and my own domain name. Bit of a learning curve, but I now have very favourable comments and it's easy to muck around with.

I'd give it a go and save stacks of dosh. You can easily do all of the stuff you've mentioned.

Find a website you like as a benchmark. Are you providing your own content? Do you already have a logo and business correspondence that will dictate the look of your website? 200 should be ample for a basic website. Wordpress is my recommendation.

I agree re Wix but I think the OP might need a content management system if they are regularly updating/adding new pages and content.

I'm more than happy with the person that designed my website, all I pay is a monthly fee for him to keep it updated or what ever they do. Feel free to click on the link below, the Painter & Decorator in Sheffield one.

I know this is a month old BUT does the domain carry the .wix bit at the end.
I need to move our website elsewhere, we have a domain and a wix site but i need to get one that doens't have ****ty ads and .soandso etc.
