The website really needs to look sharp as we are on our own- we now represent major companies like Mercury, Travelers, and Progressive, and I want to represent ourselves accordingly.
Any ideas on how to proceed? Do I buy a website template, or have a company design one from scratch? This is a little new for me, any help is appreciated. I already have the domain and web address secured....
I'd say, don't try to do it yourself. Hire marketing and web design professionals -- people who understand color schemes, layouts, and fonts as well as the technical stuff.
