Let's not beat around the bush, there are a ton of ugly websites out there. Some of the websites that I've seen are hideous and whoever developed them should be probably banned from every developing a website again. Your website is a picture of your business. When someone comes to your website what do they think? How do they picture the work your company does for clients?
Let me explain how some of these awful sites come to life and explain the cure for them. Some business owners know that they need a website, and they want it done professionally, so they go looking for a web developer and designer, they then see the 4-8K price tag and right away they get sticker shock. Not to mention this is just the upfront cost, the maintenance of that website will be another expense for years to come. So, they try to do it themselves or worse they pay a low end service provider or a high school student to put something together.
