Quick Tip:
Create Your Own Website – Quickly and Inexpensively

When the time comes to build your self-promotion website, you have three choices: Purchase web-building software ($100 to $500). Pay someone else to build it ($500 to $2,000). OR … build it yourself online.

By doing it yourself with one of the following three "website builders," you'll have your site up and running in about an hour for much less money and aggravation. All of them have templates that make building your site almost effortless. And all support e-commerce:

  • www.citymax.com – Pay as little as $17 a month for hosting and access to their easy-to-use website-building tools.
  • www.godaddy.com – A one-page site is only $14.95/year. Or you can get fancier and pay from $4.95/month for a 5-page site to $13 for a 20-page site. (Click on the "Create a Website" tab on the front page.)
  • www.homestead.com – Pay a monthly fee ranging from $6 to $34.99 for hosting (the amount depends on the hosting plan) and access to their website-building tools.

These three website builders are among the most affordable, dependable, and easiest to use. Check out all three before deciding which one seems best for you.
