Hi BHW! I'm going to jump into the online retail world this year and want to start a website. I don't know jack about HTML or how to build a website. I had a friend tell me that I could make my own website for $20, I was like "yeah but it won't look near as professional as if I just spent about $200 and got a template from a website like temp monster i'd prolly be better off". And yes I know, I could learn how to build my own but that takes alot of time AND even more to make it look and work professional. I would like to hear what you think is better, something custom or a pre-made template? $500 budget. I'm not looking for a wordpress solution, something more open source for a shopping cart.
