Post an ad on upwork.com and ask for someone to do it. People on there from $3usd per hour. Make sure you get samples and don't pay up front. Ask for a quote and pay for progress. Mostly India, china and the Phillipines

There are a number of Forum members that create websites – and single page real estate webpages – and integrate Matterport seamlessly.

I encourage you to hold off a few days so that members can either post here or PM you.

Best,

Dan

I would send a message to Spencer at renderingspace.com. He has some great options as well as Marcel who does showcaseskins.com.

@justinS Can you tell us more about what you'd like the site to do for you? I'm assuming you'll want to advertise your 3D scanning (Matterport) services....anything else?

I recommend strikingly.com - they're the go at the moment, according to top site designers it's all about one pages sites now, because mobile is taking over and it's easier to swipe than click... Really easy to use. Works well on mobile(someone said wix but apparently that's flash based, or used to be ie doesn't work with iOS)You'll have a nice looking site in an hour. You'll need the pro version to embed HTML. Tip: invite your friends to join and you get a free month for each join. If you have a few email addresses they count as "friends" if you get what I mean...

Wix works with HTML for a long time and reccomend to convert your flash site to HTML Lots of free templates...

I would really recommend taking some time to learn how to edit a wordpress site. It is a real hump to get over, but I promise you this, in the near future you will be so glad you learned to do this for yourself.

- Wordpress is much easier than coding in HTML,you buy a template, and you can even edit the dummy data
- There is a plugin called Visual builder, once you have had a few tries at that and edited some dummy pages, you will be very confident in making pages quickly yourself
- All good templates come with "dummy" data, or a dummy site, you can load that in and then edit and delete to get your first site

What is best about Wordpress is that it's very easy to add new features and they have the largest collection of plugins available, so if you see something you want to do with your site, it's almost guaranteed there is a plugin that will set it all up for you.

If Wordpress is a bit complicated and takes too much of your time, I second WIX, at least to get you started.

@al9901 I agree.

If you have the energy...invest in using WordPress. You can easily hire developers/designers/consultants if you need help, but you'll never be tied to anyone or any specific host if you go this route. At this point, every city in every country has a WordPress expert, if not hundreds of them.

Please note that I'm very biased, considering that I make my living building WordPress-based sites and plugins. More importantly though, I very much believe in "owning" your own content, behind your own domain. WordPress makes it easy to do just this...and gives you the opportunity to grow your site alongside your business.

Most of the proprietary solutions (Wix, Squarespace, etc.) do allow you to assign a domain to your account, and they definitely make it very easy to spin up a site. The issue I have is that there is a glass ceiling to most of these solutions. If your business grows like you hope, it may or may not be possible to tweak one of these site the way you want and (beyond the tools that are offer) additional customization may not be possible at all. Furthermore, you're pretty well stuck if you want to pack your bags at any point...they'll give you a data export, but you'll basically be starting over from scratch at that time.

My advice is also to invest in learning how to use WP, right from the beginning.

Stepping off my soapbox now.

Wow I love these members Dan. You guys are so helpful I will take on a challenge and let you all know what the end result may be. Wordpress seems like a very good idea. I'm short on time, but sounds like word press has benefitted you guys.
Thank you!
