First time post…Can anyone give me some direction on software and website design that won’t break the bank. Thanks

Depends. How big is your bank?

Search the archives on this board. There are numerous discussions regarding this subject with a wide array of opinions.

You basically get what you pay for, personally I like and both have excellent software and websites available.

But I would go with for websites, especially if you want it on the first page of Google fairly quick.
