Hello all,
I am a freelance programmer/technician and am looking to grow my small business through a website. I am good at programming but no so much when it comes to design.. If you could help me decide what is necessary for the site and what would be a good way to set it up.

Joomla site by the way:confused:

Right now the site includes:
User signup
Services page
about page
submit a ticket
random modules to make it look sexy
#advice #site

    Hire a freelance website maker to do it. End of story.

    (reminder: People who suck at programming, hire freelance programmers...)

    Joomla is a tough learning curve for someone with no web design experience but there is a very large community supporting it. As you are a programmer, my advice would be to seek help from the Joomla community with the design in return for a plugin or some free coding for those in the community who don't have your expertise. Good Luck

    I think you should have { Home, pricing or package, portfolio, about you, contact }

    Especially "Home page" you should have...

    -feature of your work
    -How do you work?
    -Why they should hire you?

    Want to see your new website soon

    Hey! For creating site you need to know a proper information about the platform that you are using, else you have to hire a knowledgeable developer. Before hiring the one get all the info about him and after your satisfaction only hand over your site creation project to him.

    If you can't even create your own site, you should try to sell that service.

    You have two options. Eighter learn more about design and development or outsource everything.
