Hi Everyone not sure where to post this but;
31y lad here from the Netherlands. I have plenty of knowledge of anything electrical related.
However i’m starting a business of my own and I need a website. I figured this perhaps would be a decent place to start asking some questions.
What i’m looking for is a website where people can buy products, have their own account, but also sell their products a bit similar towards ebay also with a search engine,
pictures, different language options, reviews, different payment systems and so on.
I have pretty much no knowledge of website building. Now I know I can have this done professionally, and most likely will. However I will need to manage my website and I figured having some knowledge and knowhow can be useful if i lets say want to change an icon/text/color or layout perhaps.
Where would you suggest that I start?
Is something like wordpress or silverstripe a right direction to start playing with?
If I let my website get made professionally, is there usually a user friendly system to manage it?
The reason I want to have some of my own hands in this, i’m starting with a new business and a new idea. I don’t want to fully invest right away professionally
Ideally i’d like to build my website, even if its in pages not fully functional and then hand it over to a pro. It’s more to get my theme/layout idea going and see if i; m missing anything and have general concept/direction. So im looking for an easy system, but if it has a learning curve that is not a problem for me. As long as I can build something for a sense of direction.
Thank you for any advice anyone can give,
