Congratulations on your new venture!
Now to the reality of business start-up. Your website is one of the most important marketing tools that you will have. Depending on your type of business, some people will look for you there first. If your website isn`t a good reflection of your brand and offerings, it will LOSE you business.
Also, even though it is tempting to want to save money on big expenses in the beginning, chose wisely where you "scrimp." Trade for important assets like a website can be disasterous and you may end up spending 2 - 5 times as much in the end in order to really get it right.
Find someone who can build a website on a budget. I don`t know what kind of website you want but I do have a few good resources. If you want a basic website, I`d recommend a guy named Adam Hommey. He can be found at www.accesscommunicate.com.
I hope this helps. I`ve mentored a lot of 2 - 3 year business owners who were very disappointed with their first "trade" website. Remember, successful business owners invest in their future success.
