    Ok, I'm from Luton ;)

    Hi everyone! Thought I'd say hello as I'm getting in to domaining slowly and have enjoyed browsing through the forums for a little while!

    Just made my first sale on the first domain I bought with the intention of selling, which has boosted my enthusiasm hugely! Won't disclose details yet, as it hasn't fully completed, but my calculator says it's 3125% profit ;)

    Have been a web designer/developer for a long time, so it's great to move in to a related, but different area. I have thoughts to offer quick, cheap, but quality mini-site development here too, so I thought I'd ask:

    * Would you, generally, consider paying a small amount for someone to quickly develop a mini-site (with copy) with actual design theory and a modern, unique design? Turn around would be 2-3 days.

    *If so, how much would you envisage is an acceptable amount to pay?

    Great to be here and very much looking forward to meeting you all!

    Matt

    Stretching the borders a little bit, isn't the county border on the A505 just before Stopsley :)

    You're still welcome though!

    For a mini site, what would you offer that DruPal, Joomla, WordPress didn't? I can understand paying for a site design for a big site, not for a small made for adsense type of site though.

    Hi Alex!

    Ha, yes you're correct. I'd say it's close enough though! Also hoping to cross the border permanently soon :p

    Thanks for the welcome, and you're opinion re: the mini-sites! I just thought I'd put the idea out there as it's something (in terms of project size) I've not done before.

    I guess the idea may be more suited to those that don't have the time nor patience to install Wordpress, create a new theme (or find a good enough, unique-looking theme) and write unique copy.

    Thanks again!

    You may well get takers, give it a shot and see who bites, if the quality is good enough, people will recommend, if not, then they'll let you know :)
