Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, I am not very IT savvy so it will have to be done by someone else. I need it to function in a very similar manner to the linked site. I understand there may be variables, but a rough quote should help.
The answer at this point would be all over the map. So would the results. You could find a sharp HS kid who could do it for a few hundred dollars, or hire a really professional marketing company to set you up and do your initial marketing plan, but you will pay something north of $10,000
Only *you* know what your budget is.
I will offer these tips as you shop for a web designer.
1. Do NOT pay all up-front. Pay for benchmarks met.
2. You may, no should secure your domain name ASAP. Personally, I like GoDaddy, but others have their favorites. I want you to secure your domain name so that there is *no* argument with the sire developer who owns the domain name. By the way, it does no good to shop for your domain name through different registrars - they all use the same database. If you decide to trust your designer to register the domain name, make certain that your name and address are listed as the "administrative contact".
3. You are free to select *any* website developer you want. You are not, should not be bound to using your registrars designers.
There are tons of web designers out there and it is a fool`s chase to look for lowest cost. I suggest that you start by looking in the Marketplace listings here on SUN.
Hooe this helps
