Building a website

Did y’all build your own websites? Mainly asking the e-commerce individuals here. If not, how did you go about hiring help that was affordable/trustworthy to build it?

For a new e-commerce venture in the US, Shopify is the way to go in my opinion. It's very affordable and straightforward, the site looks great with little effort, there's much less hassle, and SSL & security is already built in.

^^^ exactly what he said with Wordpress and Youtube it’s super easy to do yourself

I built my own websites. 5 of them now all through watching YouTube tutorials and trial and error. 2 Years ago I had no clue how to even go about it. Now I've built our main website that we sell digital products, built a sister site for dropshipping, another sister site that hosts our memberships and courses and two others that we built up and sold.

4 of them I built on wordpress, 2 through bluehost, 1 through hostgator and the other through wordpress.com (don't use wordpress.com) and the membership group we used Kajabi because of the convenience of alll the built in tools and quick integrations.

I build my own sites with Wordpress, Woocommerce, and Elementor. I’ve done it so many times for pretty much every business idea I eventually thought of turning THAT into a business. I learned with Youtube, web tutorials, and lots of trial and error.

Edit: Clarification

Thanks, but I actually haven’t launched it yet! And about hiring help, I’d definitely recommend at least understanding enough about website builds to be able to give instructions and have a very clear idea of your end result.. both aesthetically and what you expect the site to be able to do. This includes forms, pop-ups, what your shopping cart looks like, etc.

With that, I think it’d be a lot easier to get an accurate quote upfront instead of hourly fees

Yes I built my own e-commerce site with Wordpress and WooCommerce. But building the site is not difficult. Making a site that’s not butt-ugly is the hard part.
