There are a number of different DIY providers on the Internet. They design their packages to enable you to create and manage your website for yourself. Of course there is now the almost ubiquitous WordPress.

Should you so wish, you can open an account with one of these providers and I can use their software to create your website and upload your initial content and images; set up a gallery; sale buttons etc. Whatever is available within the package, or I can create you a website in WordPress. Once set-up, it will be over to you to maintain. You will therefore have to learn how it works eventually, but to quickly get up and running, you may wish to use my services.
