Well, my new "mobile friendly" business website is finally online.  I hired a Pakistani web designer from Freelancer.com to do the work.  Freelancer.com is a site where you list what work you want done, and freelancers from all over the world bid on it.  I'm a cheapskate, and I didn't want to pay the $1200 to $3000 I was being quoted by American designers.

The bids ranged from $200 to $1000.  I chose the Pakistani because he had good reviews and bid $525.

I should have gone with an American company!  I had to argue with the guy every step of the way.  THEN it turned out that he had no idea how to do some of the things I wanted...such as make the shopping cart automatically compute international shipping, and to be able to offer discount coupons to buyers. Finally, he took over three months to "finish" it.....WITH my help.

Regardless, the site looks pretty damned good.  Now I just have to wait for Google to "spider" it so I can get back on the first page of searches as I was last year.

I hired a guy in India on freelancer.com who charged peanuts to do a graphic design job. 1st class professional job done.

People good with code are few and far between.

Even though we didn't get exactly what we wanted, $525 was pretty cheap for a completely redesigned webpage using Wordpress.
