Hey everyone! Right now I’m trying to get started on a website for my work and I have some questions if anyone can provide some answers.
I don’t have any skills in the creation of websites. No HTML, nothing. Should I just use Wix or Squarespace to make my personal website for potential clients to check out, or is there a better site builder out there?
I’ve heard that you can use HTML to make your Wix or Squarespace website much more professional looking and less basic. Is this true? Is this a common approach for many designers starting out? Use a site builder and incorporate more HTML that you might pick up to tweak it as you go?
If possible I’d like to make websites for clients, but again, no skills in that department. Is learning HTML on my own through YouTube videos and Dummies books realistic? Or is it something that I need to dedicate a serious amount of time to, like maybe a class at community college or online courses? Because the beginner videos I found on YouTube seem REALLY complex.
Is there anything I should know about making my own website? The one thing I’m looking forward to is getting my own website so I can have a more professional looking email, like Agent@Agent008.com. I know Yahoo and AOL addresses are a no-no, but apparently even Gmail addresses aren’t seen as professional these days.
In the meantime I’m just going to dive into Wix and see what I can come up with.
