Hello. I am hoping to set up a website to advertise my counselling practice. As this is only a hobby at the moment, I want to keep costs to a minimum. I will see how counselling goes at the weekend and odd evening and if it takes off I may wish to review the website. Please can you let me know potential costs so I can make a decision. I am also speaking with a few other contacts who are also offering a price.
I am aware that there are clever ways to get my website higher up the search results on search engines (search engine optimisation) and I have heard having a blogging facility is also useful. So anything to do with this would be great.
I am happy to draw a site map. The site will provide my contact details, brief information about my approach to counselling, a definition of counselling, a way to search for key words within the site, links to my email and other websites, etc. I am not looking to add many photos etc. I may ask my sister to design the artwork, but it will be kept quite simple.
