    Looking for a website designer for my Band??

    Does anyone know of or can recommend a website designer that isn't expensive??

    We've been using windows live website for quite some time and our knowledge of website designing is poor, it has served a purpose but want a more professional look now...It's for my band, thanks

    hope you can help

    Have a look at web designers near you, it's a lot easier to pop into their office so you can show/explain to them in person what you want rather than trying to explain over the phone.

    I worked as a web designer for a bit and it's a pain trying to get what the customer wants when you have to keep phoning each other but if you spend 30 mins or so discussing exactly what you want it should make the process a lot simpler and possibly cheaper as they have to spend less time on it overall, much easier to sit down and make a website in an afternoon than keep going back to it.

    I may be able to do it for you depending on what you want, I need more for my portfolio.

    This type of thread is frowned upon here, and to be honest I doubt much of the web design 'experts' on here could do much better than your efforts

    It's 'Self-Promotion'. Your promoting your current website content, and others are promoting their website 'mad skillz' and touting for business

    To be honest, I would ask for some mad lyrical skills from Dan Jackson, that will promote your band more than any website could :thumbsup:

    I used to do it professional years ago, everything from the music industry, private healthcare and NHS.

    Unfortunately you pay for what you get in the web design industry.. £700-1000 for a bare bones company website, then anything from £2000-10,000 depending on the complexity of the backend..

    If you want a very good band site.. Minimal functionality - ya looking at a cool £700-1000 i reckon.. As it doesn't need to much content management.. If you some professional flash in the mix, be prepared to pay allot more..

    Otherwise you could get a crap one and pay £90

    Look around.. See what companies are doing.. Pay for something good and don't skimp on it.

    I was complementing DanJackson on the power of his words, never heard your band so wouldn't be able to criticize or complement until such time
