I’ve been thinking I would like to incorporate some new ideas into my employers website (not without their permission of course). However, I realize that the company they currently use may not like this, and want to do it themselves, which means charging us an arm and a leg. (We’re a nonprofit, and our budget is rather limited, and doesn’t include dropping the King Ransom on redesigning our website.) I was thinking though that if I had the skills (and my employer may be willing to let me learn at their dollar), I could incorporate some of my own ideas into the website. The problem is though is that I don’t have any–and I mean ANY–experience with designing a website.
How difficult would it be to build a website with little or no experience? Is it something the average person can do, someone who has limited experience working with computer programs? Is there a guide of some sort that can help? If not, just how does one go about becoming qualified to design a website?
