Default Professional Websites Cheap - Believe me it's worth a look

Hello.

My name is Michael Calkins. I have the up most confidence that my experience, training and talent all have the ability to serve as a professional designer for the home page of your website.

Once you have reviewed the attached link of the previous website I designed you will see that I have invaluable experience in all areas of web design, graphic design, internet marketing, HTML and CSS programming, even intellectual skills with experience in German and French, along with personal support and troubleshooting. I am currently working for http://www.lavaeagle.com/ which is a multimedia and file hosting website for the purpose of entertainment and a hub for all users who wish to store their files securely and effortlessly.

Furthermore, I have a particular mindset on being multi-task oriented, greatly creative and effective and I continually look for challenges and approach them with unwavering enthusiasm and enjoyment, so I hope you take my offer into serious consideration.

Payment wise, don't worry, I believe that web design should come cheaply and professionally. I will talk it over with you, I am very open minded and would love to work with you especially if you don't have that much cash to pass around.

Websites help more than you think and it may be the thing that gives your business the boost it needs.

Thank you,
Michael Calkins - www.Lavaeagle.com

Just one observation based on comments from customers, friends and my own surfing, sites that run this Ads by Google drive people around the bend including myself, if I see this on the home page, no matter how interested I may be in the companies service, I go elsewhere.

Web hosting is cheap, get a static IP and host it yourself, you can get a server for less than $600.00, add the software and you are on your way. If you want to make some extra money, offer hosting.

Just something to consider

Web hosting costs about $86.5 and the web domain is $15 is bit cheaper than $600
So I think that it's pretty clear even with my fee its still not going over $200 total and i teach them how to edit the site for their leisure if they choose to.

plus I'm doing these sites as i saw with my brother he was a Lawnscaper and it's a great business that if put on the web would boost your possible growth and expansion.

i will be posting some more work here shortly http://www.merit.lavaeagle.com
This link will be dead for a few minutes after this post, till i get the subdomain up and uploaded. This is a beta site because I still have to meet with the school people about how they want their site and they are slow to respond.

Host Papa has the highest rankings for web hosting, $4.95 a month all in including the Domain, I have four sites with them as it's cheaper than setting up my own equipment, up time is 99.8%, amazing support, stat of the art software to build a website etc.

Then why would you have suggested setting up equipment if it's just to expensive for you anyways?

I know ads are turn offs but the one on my homepage is the only one that makes me money.
