Website Development or Creation is most important because it your business face presenting around glob/world wide web.
You can build your website using two method one is using Content Management System (CMS) and other is custom development.
Content Management System:
It is basically a kind management system where you can design your website and manage your content easily without any coding experience in hand. There are so many free CMS already available on internet that allow you to build your website without having coding experience or knowledge. I listing some popular CMS that generally people used:
WordPress: It is one of the most popular CMS around the world and it is easy to use compare to other cms. Here you will find so many theme/design option that will help you build your business website according as per your requirements. Here you also find the option for free E-Commerce theme and addon plugins (like woocommerce) that help you to build your online store/E-Commerce websites and so many categories base theme that will help you out to build your business website as per you business niche or area.
Joomala: It is also a good cms but not much theme and design option as well as it is bit complicated to use and no much add-on plugin that will provide you flexibility as WordPress had.
Drupal: Initial is a one of the famous CMS and known as secured cms, but it also have very limited theme, design and Add-On options and bit complicated for the end user those don’t have prior knowledge.
Magento, opencart, & shopify: These all three well known as E-Commerce CMS. They mainly design their CMS as per E-Commerce requirement.

But for all these three cms platform you should have some prior experience, if you don’t have then you may hire some expert or you may try yourself using Google and YouTube videos.
Keep thing in Mind while making Website Design:
Whenever you will try to design your website you may keep these important things in mind:
Website design minimal: should me easy in flow as per user, means your customer will use your website like a game and they will not find any difficulty to reach out to your original goal.
Website UI/UX simple: It just like your shop, if you keep your products in unsorted way or not in arranged mode in shop then it is very hard for customer to find any products as well as customer will not feel comfortable in your shop while look around inside your shop.
Search should be visible and easy to use: You should keep search button easy to visible , so your user can easily find what they are looking for, in case they land on other page that page they are not looking for, so they can search what he/she looking for even they can find search other products or services they might need in future or they might will refer to their friends, relative or some other group in that peoples are looking for that.
Color Tones and Text Font: Colors and CSS design for your website is very important part of that, always keep in mind color should not iterate human eyes. Even text font should be very plain an readable so user don’t feel stress while reading the content in your website or simply visiting your website.
Media Representation: Always keep in mind while putting any media files (Images, Videos, Docs, excel or pdf or anything else) on your website, quality of media should be very clear and related to your website content , products, services or whatever you have been doing. If you put wrong media on wrong place then user will went off without checking your content that will make a very bad impression for user so you might loos that user for long.
If, you have been putting good quality media on your website then it will attract more users and user will share automatically content to all. Even if you selling any products, services or anything else media is a good way to convey any one.
It is just like you are putting banner of your offline store or for your business and playing a media on big screen to show your products or services on a big frame that attract user, If your banner and big frame video not in good quality then people will not even see your shops or business whether you put big screen or big banner of picture.
Should mention your term & Condition page: Make sure you put your term & condition if you are making for business even for personal blogs too, So it will safe for your.
Mention Support Page visible: Put all support details visible to your customer it is always a good things, If you will not put then your customer will go off and you will lose your customers.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Friendly: Website should be search engine optimized, so search engine will crawl your website as per your business categories. If you website not optimized as per SEO then it is very hard to find through search engine like Google, Yahoo, bing and more.
