You have two options. Make It Yourself or call a pro.
One saves you tons of money, but cost time. The other saves time and is very expensive. I play ball with the pros a reasonable price and I'm clear about price.
...but it's always cheaper to do it yourself - should you?
Wix will literally build a site for you based on info from Google and Facebook. If you have a Facebook page it will make you a site with their Corvid editor. Check it out.
Do not use Shopify or Wordpress. Ever. Please trust me.
I've had a lot of people do this and I completely understand. I just want to encourage you, because you probably can do it! They make it really easy to make something good these days. Good. Yes - but if you want to tell your story and not look like all the other templates out there, text me. We can do amazing things together.
Good. Yes - but if you want to tell your story and not look like all the other templates out there, then we should talk.

Owner, Founder, Does Everything
The purpose of Minim is to offer outstanding creative services for the small businesses that need it to cost less so they can pay the insane rent in Bentonville. I use the profits to make my content better, more affordable and to take care of my super supportive wife and 2 year old little girly-wig at home. The Good Lord is our rock, our peace and our purpose. Everything I make and person I help is a little thank you to Him for the breaths it took to do it and the joy He puts in it. I'm from Rogers, AR, live in Bentonville and work at Downtown Bentonville Inc as their sole designer, photographer, videographer and developer.
I was not a designer, but I was hired to build DBI a site on Wix. I learned design on the job and now I couldn't be happier with my job(s). Sometimes you don't need a degree or even much experience. Just show that you have what it takes to learn humbly. Then fight every dang day to stay humble or you'll lose it all.
Do I have a degree? Yeah I went to some dumb school around here to pick one up for what it's worth, but it's not related to design at all.
NWACC is a fantastic school. that is not the school I'm referring too. Take a class with Valor Pickett and your life will be changed. There ya go kids.
Minim started with my buddy Chad George (a local genius) and I. We worked together at Downtown Bentonville Inc everyday for 3 years. Lately he's found a great job that he loves and fills his creative juices, running all the media and design at New Heights Bentonville. So now it's just me. Do not hesitate to check out what he's doing lately. Like I said, he's a genius. Seriously check it out....did you do it?
Yes we are still friends and I definitely miss seeing him everyday.
How does it work?
"Money and fame bring a man shame. Ain't no doubt about it."
Why would I stray so far from the norm? To meet you where you are. I don't care about recognition. Only making the best websites for the people who can't afford an agency or the time to do it themselves. Minim's purpose is to help small businesses grow in a place where these services are hard to afford.
Also, I use the best software around. Webflow for example, help me build websites faster than I could in Squarespace, Wix and ESPECIALLY Wordpress. Most importantly, I can do anything with it. Tools that help me spend less time doing more are tools that save you money. I can't be affordable without them.
I believe you should know what design will cost before you call me. All my prices are listed as clearly as a price tag. A lot of people will tell you that you need more than you do or that it's harder than it is. We keep it simple and that keeps more money in your pocket.
Wix is pretty easy to use and can do a lot. They can even make a website for you with their Corvet in like 5 clicks. You can update it an maintain it yourself and you can make it look good. Squarespace is similar, but with less control over placement.
If you want to use design to make you stand out in ways you didn't know were possible, you want to talk to me. I can set up parts of your site to be easily updated. Webflow gives you the best client editor in the world. It takes a huge load off your back and let's your crate content without effecting the design of your site. It's even easier than Wix, but it's all up to me to make stylistic changes and add things like new sections.
To see what you can and can't do with the editor check out this blog post I made showing you.
The downside is that you don't get to move things around. That's my job. So if you need that, then go sign up for Wix and get rolling. No hard feelings. I legit want you to use what's best for you.
For example, if you have pricing tiers, I can't design that part of the site without the information because the amount of content could mean we need something different that a typical column.
