I don't have a huge budget so I need to becareful how much I spend on web design because SEO will cost more! If anyone can recommand me a good company then that would be very helpful.
I have never used odesk before I'm still bit skeptical about all of this. Do scams happen alot on here?

If you're smart about the way you go about your business then the amount of scams are reduced by a large margin.
The way that I calculate business investments such as websites and marketing is by their return on investment (ROI). New websites are difficult to gauge in terms of when it will pay for itself, but SEO should be paying for itself with a profitable return in a few (3-4) months time.
I say this because I regularly see clients here on oDesk look at the cost of their website and marketing as long-term and even on-going expenses. They are investments that should yield a return within a respectable amount of time, or they're being done wrong and should be reevaluated or ended.
