|I'm a single founder of a high-tech (but not web-based) company. However, I don't really have the thousands of dollars it would take to get a website designer to put together a site for me.|
I absolutely respect that it's worth the money, the money just doesn't exist. So, I need to find a stopgap so that my company has something out on the web which makes us look professional enough that when I reach out to customers we don't look like total amateurs.
Can anyone help me navigate this mild morass? Should I just use Bootstrap and get something minimal up? Or is there some other solution that takes a little more time but would look a lot better?
What I'm trying to find is whatever will get me to a site that, not including creating the content, will take me less than 10 hours to get to a clean and modern state for someone who has used Linux exclusively for over a decade, and knows basic programming, but is busy enough to want to really just follow a tutorial (that actually works).
I don't care about things like the new trend of scrolling graphics windows or whatever that sin of nature is, or probably most other modern features. I'm looking to make a site closer to DuPont in style than a web startup. The one thing that would be a really "nice to have" is a news feed that I can update via the web to keep the content updated more often.
