Cheap Website Design That Looks Cool

What everyone who is designing a website wants to achieve is pretty much the same thing; a cheap website design that looks like an expensive professional site.  Whilst you may not be able to produce a news site to compete with the BBC, or an eCommerce site to compete with the likes of Amazon, I want to show you that cheap website design doesn’t have to mean a bad website.

We are going to be looking at three imaginary websites. All of these will be cheap website design projects, but all three of them will look great, as if they had thousands spent on them.

Cheap Website Design Scenario 1: A Blog.  In just a few minutes you can produce a blog that will look like a pro news website.  I kid you not!  And in just a few minutes more you can populate it with hundreds of articles, yes again, I kid you not. All on a cheap websitye design shoestring budget.

Step 1: Install WordPress on your server.  Most website hosts provide a one click setup method of doing this.

Step 2: Download an ultra cool theme for your WordPress site. This is done via the Appearance section of your blog whilst logged in as admin.
Step 3: Install a plug-in called wp-robot.  By giving this a few keywords it will go off and find thousands of websites to stream content from, and populate your blog.

There you go, three simple steps and a cheap website design budget of £0

Cheap Website Design Scenario 2: An eCommerce website.  So you want to sell stuff online, but you want to have a cool looking store.  Again, I’m going to give you three very simply steps to follow;

Step 1: Choose a backend product.  I would suggest OSCommerce or Magento.  Both are free and can be auto-installed at most decent hosts

Step 2: Download a theme for your store

Step 3: Fill your store with cool unique content and watch Google follow
Cheap Website Design Scenario 3: A general HTML website.  Now you really are in luck, because the internet is full of free material to create your website with.  People make a hobby out of creating website templates, so that you can have a cheap website design budget. 

Just Google for “website templates” and find one that fits your niche.
And that’s all there is to it.  Remember to choose a host that includes free installation of common backbends, such as Magento, WordPress & OSCommerce.  Make sure that you host doesn’t block lots of the scripts which certain themes and plug-ins might require, and always make sure that perform a regular backup.  Remember a cheap website design budget can go through the roof if you end up wasting time rewriting a site you didn’t back-up.

Cheap SEO, plus a Cheap Website, or Cheap SEO plus a Cheap Website Update

Article by Gene Schwerman

Depending on whether you need a new website or simply to redesign your existing site, please consider the following options. Certainly in order to be successful in business in our current economy, it is necessary to have a web presence. However, either through inexperience or misinformation many people feel they need to spend a large amount of money for their website. Many others who set out to find an inexpensive website, or even a downright cheap website are drawn into the reach of expensive and often unscrupulous web designers and end up paying for an expensive website or worse overpaying for what should have been a cheap website!

Further, many people are either unaware of search engine optimization initially or do not find out about it until they have already overspent their budget on their not so cheap website! The same problem can easily occur in redesigning a website. Cheap website design can always accommodate cheap website redesign, one must simply focus on finding it.. The point in finding cheap website design is to have money left to buy cheap SEO because doing both things quickly is key to having success.

Thousands, perhaps millions of web owners across the country wish they had found cheap website design so they could then go about finding cheap SEO and build a presence on the internet for their website. So many web owners do not find out about SEO until after the fact of overspending on their website that it is nothing short of a major problem! Of course the expensive web designers will argue the subject didn’t come up. Right!

Cheap Web Design is not necessarily the oxymoron some might call it, nor is cheap SEO. Both things exist but neither are particularly easy to find. A basic cheap web design when done simply and quickly by an accomplished web designer for a site owner who is both prepared and organized enough to let the web designer complete his task expeditiously, need not be expensive because it really shouldn’t take long enough to cost a lot. A cheap website may look as good as a more expensive site given the proper research and preparation. If all the owner wants is a basic cheap website, if he provides the wording as needed and doesn’t hold up the production of the site in any way; Presto! You can have a good looking quick, cheap website.

In the end, the cost of your cheap website plus the cost of cheap SEO, if researched and prepared for correctly, should be equal to or less than the cost of the website only for the guy who didn’t take the time to do his homework! Building a nice functional but cheap website and immediately adding cheap SEO, can allow for almost instant return on investment. It can allow for the ability to reinvest new monies into your cheap website in a matter of a few months as well as pay for continuing SEO from profits rather than from savings or other income. So consider a cheap website and some cheap SEO for your business. Do it today!
