    Hi everyone,

    My brother has a website that sells courses within the UK and the site is in need of updating, at the moment it looks pretty old and is hard to navigate.

    I told him about freelancer and he has narrowed down to two companies to build him something with a simple backend to orginise the courses for sale, update the design/seo and do some marketing.

    Thing is, he only has a £3000 budget and after checking out their portfolios the work looks pretty crap, thier sites are nowhere to be seen on the SE for thier keywords and they look like they haven`t been updated in ages.

    Could anyone recommend a good web design company within the UK?

    And is this budget enough to get this project done?

    Cheers

    As far as the budget goes it depends on what the task entails, i have always found my best web designers and programmers for eastern Europe, you can find some of the free lancer sites you may find some good talent for your budget, India is cheap but personally i have never had goo luck there. As far as UK the price might be a little steep. I would try other sources first

    Hope that helps

    Get your head around wordpress and you can do it between you. Then invest some of the money on SEO I would now pay 3k especially if their portfolio looks crap ...
