Designing site can be done using some excellent html editors, such as Frontpage, (you can get Frontpage Express for free with Internet Explorer or Netscape) or Hotdog, http//www.sausagetools.com (they have a shareware program for 30 days). I use both and though they have a learning curve, (some frustration and exasperation -), you will have designed a first class, professional looking site.
You might want to create a mini-website or a micro-website. These are 1-2 page with Good content and 1-3 keyword or keyword phrase focused. I highly recommend an Excellent ebook on creating microsites that author was able to get a top 10 listing with Google in as little as 3 days! Check it out here. http//www.easyseo.com/html/books4u.html
If you decide to spend bucks for a web designer, and there are a lot that will offer cheap rates, make sure you look at their portfolio before giving them you business. And put it in writing with price and agreed upon terms (time, pages and content). I recommend if you do your own site, to consider having a professional-looking logo done. It really gives your pages a serious, professional look and uniformity. I have used Got Logos, http//www.gotlogos.com, they only charge $25 and do a great job.
