Take a look at Frank Gehry’s website:
https://web.archive.org/web/20090228144935/http://www.foga.com/ is a link to it back in 2008. If you visit it today at www.foga.com you’ll find it looks almost identical.
Frank’s work stands out. It’s in magazines. People walk by it. They see it. They interact with it. He gets his pick of work. He doesn’t need a fancy website because he is known.
It’s possible that you’re focusing on your website (or other details) too much if your website isn’t what gets the attention in your work. If you do work that is “out in the world” it’s likely your work will get the attention you want, focus on it more.
