“Jumping in on this question if I may. I am wanting to start a website also. I am not very tech savvy – what is an out of the box solution? Make your own or pay someone to do it? Thank you”
You can build your own site, at the same time problem, is many times it doesn’t have the consistent look and feel (which equals trust) of a brand/professional design. That means when it comes to marketing, it fails to convert in sales.
Shopify is an e-commerce platform you can get started right away – if you can post here you have enough tech skills already 🙂
