    Default Bingo Website Design

    Hi all,

    As I'm new to this, I don't really have a huge budget to get started.

    Does anyone know of a decent web designer/developer that I could get a Bingo review style website done for around $300? I know it's not a lot, but it's a start!

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Lee

    Personally I would use a generic template and then spend maybe $50 - $100 on a decent logo or header. Of course this assumes that you're willing to learn a bit of css, but that's something that I think every affiliate or webmaster needs to know anyway.

    That's a good idea actually.

    Where could I find free bingo templates?

    Thank you,

    I don't think it needs to be a bingo specific template. Just a generic Wordpress template that has either the colour scheme you're looking for, or theme options so you can customise the colours to give it an online bingo feel. Then if you spend a few dollars on a bingo specific header image, you're all set.

    I use wordpress templates that I found from someone on this forums signature. This should help you out a bit, gamblingtemplates.net/. There is a site fiverr that you can get good logos done for decent prices. Be sure not to use them for SEO, if you need a recomendation PM me. You can go through three hundred very quickly, I would read alot and do as much research as possible before you spend a penny.

    I wouldn't worry so much about all the bells and whistles that some of the templates have at the moment - do something relatively simple and focus on the content and structure as that's what's going to get you the traffic. You can always add fancy pants stuff afterwards.

    Have a look at http://themeforest.net/ - they have tons to choose from. Try not to spend too much time on it though, just pick something simple and get cracking.

    Why not use the default WordPress theme and make modifications yourself? There's very little better than learning/figuring out how to code a site yourself.

    Put the $300 towards content development and having an inexpensive logo designed.

    I think that may be the only way to go, Shay.

    I'm truly not technically inclined so I think it may be a long time before the site goes up. I just wanted to get the website up sooner rather than later.

    It is all much easier than most people think. Personally, I'd get the site up on a default wordpress theme and focus on the content. Don't worry about conversions until you are getting traffic. Then, as you learn how to "do" what you're looking to do, update your pages by coding in whatever calls to action you're looking to place.

    Years later, you'll be glad you were somewhat close to the code because you'll be able to fix your issues as opposed to "needing" to pay someone to fix it.

    Best of luck to you.

    There are a few threads here at the GPWA where we discuss themes so look for those as each time the discussion comes up different recommendations are made.

    You might also want to try Suffusion or something similar since it's interface allows you to edit and adjust the theme on the fly customizing such things as columns, color schemes, backgrounds, fonts, images and more, all while the site is live.

    I suggest making a backup before performing such changes at least until you become more comfortable with it, and after that back it up anyway....lol

    Thank you for the words of encouragement, Shay.

    Great tip, Rick! I'll keep that in mind.

    I just visited Flytonic.com and they appear to have exactly what I'm looking for so I might give one of those themes a whirl.

    Anyone with expertise using them?

    Sorry for all the questions!

    I am in no way, shape, or form a web designer. I have no coding experience and very little knowledge in terms of graphic design. I ended up going with the Flytonic theme for my bingo site which I just launched last week and found it pretty easy to navigate.

    If you do go that route, do your homework and follow the support guides that the guy posts. They can save you a lot of hassle and headaches.

    I like the overall look of my site and am continuing to develop it as I learn more and more.
