    Mark, the wife has been doing it for years, but in all honesty it's not really necessary to spend the big bucks anymore on pro sites. WordPress sites are ridiculously easy to do, just find a template you like, throw the pictures and text in, and you're done. My site is a good example, I built it and figured it out over a few weeknights.

    Piece of cake man, seriously.

    Making your own site is easy these days. Try it out, many sites will even let you design for free and only pay if you are satisfied.

    I kind of am. I don't do graphic design, but I do copywriting, seo, social and high level configuration. Happy to help out.

    GoDaddy is an economical solution. You can do it yourself or pay a talented designer to do it for you.

    Good content is key. Do your homework on SEO before you start.

    It is easy as long as you don't want to sell anything off the site. If you do the complications start...

    Good design is imperative! (I've seen a lot of shit design lately.) Quality content, professional photography and writing is key so you don't look like an idiot to the entire world! I use a writing and editor for all my design projects.
    If you don't have what you need, take the time to build it over the first year.
