I agree with Rich Eddy. Wordpress is easy to work with, particularly if you are building a blog site. I used Standard Theme myself. But for my main business site, I spent some bucks to have it done right, as should you. If it is not designed properly, some of the issues you may have are high bounce rate due to poor design, low SE ranking due to poor SEO
, and basically just an unprofessional looking website. There are a lot of outsourcering sites that you can solicit bids from for a relatively inexpensive site, such as Elance, Freelancer, Guru.com.
