    Okay I have no experience or knowledge or desire in designing and coding a website myself, im just not capable of it.

    I have a few ideas, nothing new but for instance I wouldnt mind having a dating website built, or the next auto trader built.

    Something that gives value to users and something that I can monetize.


    How much would it cost to get a website built ground up, that is professional looking like a zoosk, Pof, or autotrader?


    I come up with the name, slogan and give someone who can build it that information and what I want the website to do?


    I know your going to say "its not 1,2,3 build a website and profit.", I know seo goes into it, but I know how to promote really well and have quite a bit of money to put towards paid promotion.

    Please let me know, where would I find someone who could do this?

    The website you are talking about are not just displaying information but they are dynamic and seem to have a few layers that help the backend and frontend communications - from my understanding you want a web application.

    Website that just show information can be built very easily by just slapping a theme on it or even getting it coded for you custom shouldn't be that bad and can be done for around 300-500 bucks depending on how custom you want it.

    But web applications have functionality to them, they are dynamic and so much more efforts needs to get into it. Plus on top of that it wouldn't be advised for you to get a temp developer pay him to make a web app for you and then just hand it to you - web apps need maintenance a lot more than website. So you would need a dedicated developer or a team based on how big the web app gets.

    For web apps we are talking thousands and not hundreds and as to how many thousands that depends on the very specific requirements of your website which I don't know about.

    I am not trying to put you down just giving you the truth so you won't waste your money on useless stuff.

    i suggest you go for a website look for a web developer and ask him to build both the website and do the development from my experience in developing websites for decades anything is possible provided capital and time are available (and most importantly a hard working developer ) there are tons of designers and developers on elance and other related sites good luck

    A website that big and well done, I'd say over $10k. I'm no expert, but I know that custom professional designs (layouts) go for several thousands $, a whole website should be worth much more.

    There are web designing BSTs here, but I'm not sure if they offer web apps. Best thing to do is go to Odesk and search for freelancers capable of creating web apps. Do prior research about what you want to build so you won't get scammed.

    There's an awesome templatic theme called realtr that I used a couple years ago. Had a lot of great features, and simple to use for even those not so great at customizing the code, like uploading all the listings with a spreadsheet and such. There is a nulled version in downloads section somewhere too, but you would probably want the updated version of the template. Here's the link to see it on their website.

    Free...You can build a website or app for free. i have built numberous websites in less then one hour time. Now not all of them are content rich websites with millions of interested viewers but i will say, each of them turns a nice profit. hell i believe you can buy a bunch of domains host on hostgator and use weebly as a template and add code as you go

    If you want a professional site done that looks beautiful and is scalable with the latest technology you are looking at 25k or more. I am talking about a professional developer not some guy who knows how to put together a wordpress site.
