Wordpress is a great tool to build a website on for so many different reasons. On top of that, I'd suggest using the Genesis framework and one of their premium themes. You will spend a few bucks, but in my experience it is well worth it. Beyond that, there are a number of Wordpress plugins that will make your site better, both from a design stance and an SEO/marketing stance.

How much do you know about website design/development and SEO/content marketing? How much time do you plan to spend on this? Think carefully about what you should be doing yourself and what it might make sense to outsource.

Building a New Website Re: Building a New Website
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.

Building a New Website Re: Building a New Website
Just curious of what people are doing with their insurance agent websites. Keeping in mind that we develop stuff for free. If an agent tells me they are paying $500/month for a site and the site is super good....I will give e a thumbs up.

But if I can save the agent cash and give him/her the website for free. Why not?

It is the right thing to do.

No, just slimy.

Could both parties in a lawsuit lose? Should the forum sue NAAIP for having to endure years of their BS?

You can pay the premium or you can own the loss.
