Having a website is important if you want to present a professional feel to your business. Advertising on Craigslist or in forums can be the cheapest method to promote your products but the chances to succeed in Internet marketing relying on such methods of promotion are slim or not too good. It’s best that you have your own website so as to create a presence and also to exude a sense of professionalism to your Internet marketing business.
If you’re just starting out, you probably won’t have enough funds to hire a professional web designer. You don’t need to. I wouldalso strongly advice you not to hire any web design companies to do the job for you. This is because these companies have operating costs that they need to cover and their web design fees would include such expenditures.
There are many other ways that you can still have a professional looking website without breaking the bank. The following are three methods of creating a website without spending too much money.

2. Ask someone you know
Some people are lucky to have friends or family members who have the knowledge to create a website. If you’re one of the lucky ones, ask them first if they’re willing to help you with creating your website. At least, this way you can get a good deal. Or perhaps you can learn from them on how to create a great website.
3. Find web designers on sites like Elance or oDesk
If you don’t want to do it yourself or you don’t know anyone with the necessary skills to create a website, don’t despair and don’t go and call the companies who will charge you $500 for a 5 page website. Go to Elance or oDesk. There, you can find freelance web designers who will bid for your project. Make sure you check their credentials and their past works before hiring any of them.
Creating your website needs not be an impossible task or an expensive endeavor. You just need to be creative.
