I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "designing it"...like decorating the actual space, setting up accounts receivable. Please elaborate and I'll do my best to give you advice.

Honestly the best thing to do is to pay someone else to do it. Designing the website is something I know little to nothing about. I paid a graduate student in IT studies to do my website, as well as set up a marketplace to sell items using paypal. If you know what you are doing computer-wise, they are not that hard to design, but updating nad entering new information is the problem. I would make sure that if you have it designed by someone else, that you tell them you may want to add more information later, and if that's possible. Paying someone who is not actually in the business yet will save you tons of money, and many of the graduates know more about the new technology then those that you would pay. I have a site where you can post what you need and web designers bid on them(like ebay style) and you pay them after they finish the project for you. Let me go find the website and Ill post here later in the day.

I own a business. It is in the 4th or 5th year and doing very well. I also have a website but I do not put much time into it because I am very busy. However it is linked to ebay and I sell enough to be a powerseller. If you have the money you should pay someone to do it. If you have the time to learn how to do it you should do it yourself.
