Hi Ladies,

My husband is a Web & Graphic Designer, it would be more affordable for us to go for a freelance web developer / designer to help us improve and/or to have a more professional look of our website.

Here is my husband's portfolio: www.rolandopeda.com

Cheers!

It's a common mistake for business owners and entrepreneurs to try to set up a website by themselves. If your business is on the line, don't waste time and leave it to a professional website designer.

I strongly agree to this. Even if the website is small.

Unfortunately, karamihan ng small businesses have this thinking na mahal ang professional website designer's services, so they design websites by themselves.

Well in the beginning maybe this is okay, but eventually a web designer's services will still be needed as the business expands.

I believe that businesses should invest on their site and wag dun sa mura lang or make sure na quality of work is excellent.  It's a digital world! thing is, people would go to their site even before they visit the physical store/hotel/whatever-business. So if napangitan or na-cheapan sila sa website, i dont think people would still visit their businesses. Just my POV, no bias just because I'm a designer too.  :P

Bumping this up are there new workshops or classes for this? Actually i think i prefer a one on one kasi my schedule is not so versatile. If i enroll in a class there is a chance that i might not be able to attend it. Im usuallybon call.

Does anyone here knows who want to teach website building? Pls pm me your recommendation. Thanks

IF your website is just for personal use or portfolio, you can just make your own. Dagdag din yun sa portfolio mo. But, if you're running a business and you like to have complex structures and functions in your website, leave it to the professionals. Unless you're a professional web designer yourself.

You can try to check First Academy of Computer Arts. They have short courses for Web Design.

I create my own websites/blogs. I'm too stingy to hire someone when I know the basics naman.

Hi, ask ko lang kung para saan ang hosting lito kasi ako, plan ko bumili ng sarili kong domain sa godaddy dot com pero ption dun nakakalito lang, puwede ba yung wala ng monthly na bayad kasi yun yung hate ko yung every month merong babayaran na parang nagrerent ng room. Hindi naman ako all the time na nasa internet gusto ko lang ng sariling blog para mas mukhang serious talaga na site (excuse me hindi po yung site na na nasa signature ko yung ipapa domain ko  ;D)

^ The hosting is to put all the web pages and databases of your website.

Kung after ka lang naman sa blog na walang babayaran, gawa ka na lang ng blog na nasa blogger.com or wordpress.com sites. Tapos ilagay mo na lang ang custom domain sa settings.

Oh I see thanks freelancer_babe. Yung pangalawang sinabi mo mukhang need ko magsearch about that. Ibig sabihin ba yung custom domain ko na ilalagay ko sa settings ko magiging mysite.com na siya or site.blogspot.com pa rin? sorry I am illiterate pagdating sa ganyan

I'm a freelance web designer/developer. I create websites - personal, husiness, blog or an online shop. I can give you an affordable quotation. It will be a website where you can do the changes yourself ex. Content, pics, prices, promos etc.. For those interested, you can email me at geminilady.aries@gmail.com
