Web design without programming

by graimtell / February 27, 2009 8:35 PM PST

I run a retailed garment shop and can afford little money for advertisement. I?ve been told that hiring a web designer is a costly affair. Can any one tell me some simple steps to build my website from development to publishing on the web without programming?

Did you try the usuals?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / February 28, 2009 2:10 AM PST

I have a friend who didn't want to deal with web programming but wanted a shop online. They used GoDaddy.com

You can try that for very little or no money.

Look at some of your local colleges
by Sovereign Forum moderator / February 28, 2009 11:31 AM PST

I'm sure there are some computer science majors specializing in web design. At my college there are many students looking to create a portfolio and will design sites for free or very little... and some of their work is pretty good. So why don't post a job there or hang an ad about a unique opportunity to build a web site. I used to take jobs like that all the time.

The reason I'm suggesting that is because it would be too hard for you to create something of your choice with no knowledge and it would be even harder if you're only doing it because you have/want to, not because you like doing it.

yes possible but needs experience!!
by c4gamerz / March 1, 2009 8:35 PM PST

Yes you can by installing cms or blogging tools like wordpress but still experience is vital if you want to open your online shop as there are number of issues like performance, stability, security etc which you will have to handle. I am a entry level web designer and developer if you want than i can help you in setting up a shop for a small price. Just contact me.

Sitebuilder and Content Management Systems
by santoslhelper / March 2, 2009 3:17 AM PST

Your best bet would be finding a web host that has a sitebuilder and or fantastico in it's control panel for easy installation of content management systems (CMS). Here is a previous thread that might help too. Best Site For Web Hosting That Has Tools To Create Site - http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6616_102-0.html?forumID=37&threadID=239223 Wordpress, Joomla, and Drupal are all CMS that have themes/templates you can use and all you have to do is put in your own content.
