Where do I start?
If you would like to build your own website, but you are a beginner, and don’t know much web-design, there are several easy-to-manage tools which offer affordable, drag and drop website builders––you won’t have to write a single line of code! These services use a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) interface, so you know exactly how your website will turn out.
Recommended: Wix & Weebly
Wix is a great for small business pages and especially good for photographers, designers, musicians or artists.
Weebly is a very user friendly website builder that allows you to literally drag and drop the photos, texts or elements that you want on a page.
If you are a little more experienced, or have a member of your team that knows about web design, you can build a more sophisticated site yourself with a content management system. Services like WordPress and Joomla allow you to choose a template that suits your needs.
