My name is Erez, I've decided to enter the affiliate marketing world.
I have a problem with having a website.
A professional looking & working website built by a professional Web designer costs about 1000$.
When I build a website the pages load after about 3-4 seconds (I work with wordpress) and it doesn't look professional to me.
What do you advise me to do. Pay a professional or do it myself?

Learn how to do it yourself. You don't have to pay anyone $1,000 to get a good website.Generate more fake news.

Yes Writerguy is correct, learn how to do it yourself, much more affordable as well as you can update and add new stuff when you feel like it. Good luck Erez!

customize a free design from Open Web Design - Download Free Web Design Templates
a few designs there are public domain. most want their "design by ______" link left in the footer. a few will allow the link to be removed for a small fee.The internet is a fad.

You can go on eLance and pay a cheap designer to design some images or clean up your layout. Should be able to do that for $100.

Your webhost could be responsible for a slow pageload.We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.

As you are working with WP I suggest you spend the time getting it right from the outset, instead of spending money, the effort will repay you in spades in the long run.
You will find loads of tutorials on Youtube and helpful articles here.
There is a post on this forum on how to tackle a slow loading site, if I can find it I will post the reference for you, meanwhile keep you money in your pocket and resolve to become a WP expert.0 to $1m before I am 70, Ok maybe 71 !!! (April 2013)

Hi Erez. You mentioned working in Wordpress - Thesis has a great theme that makes creating a website really easy.
They just came out with their new version "2.0" and it looks great. One downside I noticed is they had more people sign up then they expected and they are backed up with customer service and a few other complaints in the comments.
Might be worth checking out. Their website is DIYthemes.com

Google site5 and you'll find some nice, simple, professional, fast loading and Free themes from which to build on.
Learning WP site building doesn't take long and will pay for itself multiple fold and will not go to waste if you're serious about having an online business (affiliate or other wise).
