I cannot help much with those free wysisyg editors out there. Not sure about others here, as we're mainly doing our own coding. Your best bet might be to pick one and google some reviews.

 

Alternatively, if you're interested in checking how things work under the hood of webdesign, you may want to look through http://www.how-to-build-websites.com/ for some insight. It's a huge amount of fun.

It's a good idea to build a website for friend. I will recommend to go with professional web developer rather to opt for free option. It will be less time consuming and also efficient from business point of view.

cygnet, considering that this forum is here to help people do things on their own (and not to promote self-serving spam links, either), your advice kind of misses the mark.

@tom: Google squarespace. It's an online tool you might want to look into. Otherwise, I suggest learning web design (htm/css) using Killersites' tutorials.

 

@cygnet: So far you have been very unhelpful and your main goal to generate customers for your business. Nothing wrong with that but this is NOT the forum to promote your business. This forum's goal is to help those learn to build their own sites.

 

@Andrea: In my opinion, cygnet needs a wake up call if he/she continues the same path. I'm just saying... :)

It was? I didn't even hear the crack of the whip! :)

 

In my old days, I've kind of switched to the silent ambush method. I think I'm suffering from PTSD from those SPAM wars I've been fighting around here.

hi..

There are many free website builders available and some of them i mention follow

Wix,Wopop,MOONFRUIT,DoodleKit,Webs,WebStarts,WEB START TODAY,EXAI,JIMDO.

I am going with WIX because it have many features which is help full for beginners. Wix offers three main services, including website design, mobile site design, and customized Facebook fan pages.There are both free and paid versions of the service, allowing customized domain names and removing banner ads. This is my point of view.

Actually as the question is often posted in the beginners forum I just moved here where beginners are likely to see it. However a link still exists under software.

Hi again!

I just wanted to tell you that i managed to build my website with imcreator.

i listened to my friend advice, and the building was actually a pretty enjoyable experience.

the design was very easy and fun thanks to a simple drag&drop system, the basic templates look great and the support team answered my questions very quickly. if you want, you can easily build a website in no time.

thanks again guys!

It's even more fun, when you write your own code.

Don’t just start designing your website. To ensure that your website is effectively meeting the needs of your visitors you need to map out your customers journey from the first time they visit your website to the moment they become a customer.
