Ladies, I just want to point out that you need to be careful about where you spend your money.
There is a new company out offering their services, and I am all for free market, but I find $2,800/year for their VIP level service to be a bit pricey when their own business site gets a lower Alexa rank (traffic measurement) than a site I pulled together for a local SP for $100/year.
Do some comparison shopping before you decide. My experience tells me 1and1.com are the cheapest hosting, domain hosting and everything else site out there ($50/year with an anonymous domain), they have site building tools, and gmail is a great place to send your email from because they anonymize sending IPs so your privacy is kept safe.
Get yourself a copy of Firefox, install the Alexa plugin (use google to find them) and well, just be careful how and where you spend your hard-earned cash. Check people who want you to advertise with them. How much traffic do they really get? is it worth it?
Set up individual gmail accounts and measure how much traffic they send you. It is my experience that Annonces123 and Craigslist and Kijiji and yes, MERB are the very best value for money. Backpage is pretty darned good too, you don't need to spend too much to make enough business to keep you screwing like a little bunny.
It really isn't hard to get a website together, and there are always dorks like me around willing to help a pretty lady.
Just make sure you change your password on everything if you get someone to help you, and keep them in a safe place so no-one can screw around with your stuff afterwards.
YVO, your friendly neighborhood conscientious objector
