So many people do it. It is the main issue in our industry. 20 minutes 'getting to grips' with Dreamweaver design view and people think it is OK to use phrases like;
"Search Engine Optimization (SEO) are ways to design a website so that can help you get good page results on a search engine such as Google. An experienced web designer will create your website with this in mind..."
Honestly, I don't see why people feel the need to publish websites like this. There are great platforms out there such as Wordpress, where a great theme can cost as little as £15, why don't people just use them? It's there for a reason.
On reflection, that comment seems a little harsh.
I just think, if you haven't got the skills, use a platform that displays your work the best of it's abilities.
Not every designer will want to design their own website I'd assume.:icon_cheers:
In that case then he probably should design his own site, but to sell web design services, it's going to have to look better than it does currently.
Or, he could maybe just work with Wordpress, converting and making templates to suit people etc...that would work.
No further word from the original poster on this? How are you getting on True Graphics? I have seen you posting around the forums but not come back to this thread, have you taken any advice on board? I think there are some VERY valid points, you are still putting a link to your website at the bottom of everything you post, but the website has not changed.
