Dear Karen: You recently advised hiring professionals to build websites, but are there cheaper alternatives for start-ups? Answer: On a tight budget, try to barter services with a Web design firm. Or hire a freelancer to design the site and take that template to a developer, said Erin Presseau of SilverTech, a digital marketing agency in New Hampshire.
