Hi,
I run a retailed garment shop and can afford little money for advertisement. Iíve 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?

Take a look at some service providers - when you buy web space, some provide simple web building tools. It's often accompanied with adverts though and won't include e-commerce.

PS: It's not always that costly to hire a web designer.

Hiring a designer shouldn't cost you thousands by any stretch. Hundreds probably, depending on what you want. There are a few designers on here from all over the world and a bulletin board for job offers. See if you can get some quotes.

I think you may try on hiring a wed design professional for you that could take you on spending much of your money, but it depends on what would you want them to do on wed design for you....

Depends what you call costly? An advert in the local rag will cost you between £400 - £2000+ for 1 ad for 1 week or 1 month. A web site with global coverage with online shop will cost you a lot less than that.

Use a freelancer web designer as if you get a quote from a web design/development company they will be very expensive.

I will do you a good price for an online shop. example www.turkish-kafe.co.uk

Totally agree with this sentiment mate. Printed advertising is very costly when you add it up over a year and compare it to a one-off web design by a freelancer. It must be depressing to know that the ad you paid for one week is next weeks recycling!

one of the strengths of dreamweaver is so a beginner can make a site without experience ans has been the jumping off point for many beginners. it does come with templates also.
yes there are many web designers here but we are here to help beginners if they want to try.
also dont expect a web site to automatically increase your sales.

rickflair, I don't think you realize what goes into making a website.

No, but the original question was about the author creating a site, not buying one...

I think ricflair may be saving up... :wink:

If anyone would have answered the original poster on his question and not trying to sell your web services, I would have had no problem letting the thread stay where it was.

a web design program will be needed. Dreanweaver of course but it isnt free, have a look at these free ones
Selida2
html-kit
both have a wysiwyg editoe so you can design without programming,there are some disadvantages with selida but it will give you something to try.

I think that you have some options. Hire a student and pay the guy with a garment. Make a deal. I say, hire someone who knows. If you do it yourself, you'll spend time and money as well. Weigh the benefits. Also, state your budget and you'll find that you can get offers based on that budget.
