Web developer for an online business?

code editor html screengrabAnonymous emails:

I am looking for an experienced web developer to help me launch an online business, someone who is highly proficient in HTML to hit the ground running on my site.

It sounds like Anonymous is maybe looking for a developer who has experience setting up an online shop or e-commerce system, so that might narrow the range a bit.

And, of course, a developer doesn't necessarily have to be local -- but it's nice to be able to meet up and talk to face-to-face. (We do get the sense Anon is looking for someone in the area.)

Have a web developer or firm to suggest? Please share.

Give Squarespace.com a shot. Can't hurt to try the free trial. I think you might be surprised at how much a non-developer can build these days.

If he's not looking for a full time developer, but a freelancer instead, I could offer my services. (I've got a full time job but do freelance work on the side.) I'm highly proficient in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, WordPress, and much more.

And if you want to sell physical products online, check out Shopify.com. The combination of Squarespace and Shopify can take a business pretty far these days.

If the "out of the box" features aren't exactly what you need, Shopify also has a strong network of consultants that can help customize the platform.

Forget the old time HTML website. You need a CMS that provides website authoring, collaboration, and administration tools designed to allow users with little knowledge of web programming languages or markup languages to create and manage website content with relative ease. You do not want to rely on someone else every time your website need to be tweaked or updated. A CMS site can easily be designed using WordPress, Joomla or Squarespace. The latter of which is the easiest, most straight forward and offers fully integrated e-Commerce, no transaction fees, plus a bunch of other useful stuff all for $24.00/mo. (I'm not pitching, just looked it up).

I'd suggest Groff Networks? I know they do more IT help, but they may be able to help you start up a site!

Anyone can build you a site. As others have suggested, you can do it yourself using a platform like Wordpress with minimal help from a consultant/developer. However, since you are launching an online business what is important is understanding online marketing. I'd be happy to talk to you about your business model. mikulka@gmail.com

I second Troy Interactive. I worked with Nick for years at the not-for-profit I volunteered at, and he's just amazing. Can't recommend anyone more highly. Responded to questions and changes almost immediately, and always in such a friendly and professional manner. I recommend him to everyone who asks. (And bonus, he's local.)
