I tell clients that getting a website is like getting a telephone. They both have similar cost structures. The website cost is like the cost of the phone and installation. You pay one time and the equipment is yours. The hosting cost is similar to your monthly phone bill — you own the equipment but you pay for the service of being able to use it. The domain name registry is like the phone number — a unique way to get in touch with only YOU.
My name is Casper Hamlet, and I am an American graphic designer. With over 12 years of experience in various creative industries and roles, I have acquired a wealth of knowledge and skills. My work is dynamic, quick, and always created with the audience in mind. I take client relationship very seriously, as well as delivering the highest quality service in the most effective way possible. I use my 'self starter' personality to widen my skills set in project management, UI/UX design, web design, creative branding, and more. I'm flexible with my working hours and am happy to work closely with any existing freelancers you work with.
Let me clarify one point: I'm not saying you should put all your efforts into selling your wares over the internet, though if your product lends itself to easy online sales, you should certainly be considering it. The point to be made here is that you should at the very least have a presence on the web so that customers, potential employees, business partners and perhaps even investors can quickly and easily find out more about your business and the products or services you have to offer.
If you advertise in traditional methods, like newspaper ads, the results stop the minute you stop paying. With digital marketing (web design using SEO), the results keep coming in forever, as long as you renew your hosting and domain name and take care of it. By comparison, a sign at a bus stop is (at least) $500 per month, with no results guaranteed. A billboard is at least triple that. A sign on a bus is more. A radio commercial is even more. And in all cases, again, results stop the minute you stop paying and no one can guarantee you’ll get one lead from all the money spent.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve navigated away from a site because I couldn’t find the pricing and assumed it would be too expensive. Don’t make your customers reach out to you to inquire about how much you charge for your services or products — chances are, they won’t reach out. List your pricing — you don’t have to go into full detail, but give an idea of how much you would charge for different services or packages — to ensure that the people who are contacting you aren’t wasting your time and their own. It’s a step that customers will appreciate and that will save you valuable email or phone time.

If you run an auto repair shop, a website can be your best friend. Why? Because your customers may assume that your services are more expensive or complicated than they really are. People generally feel very anxious about taking their car to the shop; a website that offers clear pricing, service details, and online estimates is an easy way to earn their trust and loyalty. If you offer auto detailing services, a website gives you a chance to show off your handiwork with impressive photos.

They don’t need a lot of info or a complicated, multi-page encyclopedia about you. Just a few simple pages are usually more than enough, as long as it has basic information that’s tailored to their needs and very easy to find. And, most importantly, it should be accurate and up-to-date, since out of date info is one of people’s top pet peeves when it comes to using local business websites.

The answer is: You could build a website yourself, but...Most do-it-yourself companies and even Yahoo will offer free websites or discounted web hosting to get you hooked. But what they don't tell you is, that their software used to build a website is proprietary. That means that they (the company) owns the rights to that website that you have just built and you can not move it, even if you find a better deal somewhere else. So that means that you would have to rebuild that website again from the start on different software and try to make it compatible with servers and multiple browsers.
One of the great things about the internet is that it has leveled the playing field when it comes to competing with the big boys. As mentioned, you have one shot at making a good first impression. With a well-designed site, your little operation can project the image and professionalism of a much larger company. The inverse is also true. I've seen many big company websites that were so badly designed and hard to navigate that they completely lacked professionalism and credibility. Good for you, too bad for them.

The knot.com is just a spyder web of links and a strategy to rank.. Leads or not, you don’t get competition. Users not getting leads Google it, go to the site, and that’s it. That’s their site. Similar to any big adhoc consulting companies. It’s a lot of people who don’t have work, sitting on the site, wondering why they don’t get work. Further pushing designers from keeping a bill rate, or any traffic.
This is a bad idea unless that guy’s career is in web design for your industry.  Having a friend or family member make your website is like trusting a handyman to lay the foundation of a skyscraper. A LOT goes into having an optimized website—SEO optimization, file compression, responsive design, schema markup, etc.—and if it isn’t built on the right foundation, it will likely topple over.
