How do I start creating a new website using Optimizely? I do not have any Vistual Studio or Wordpress but I wanted to give a try with Optimizely to just knew all its features. Since I am non-techincal person can you guys guide me in creating the new website?

This experiment will help me in using the knowledge in my new project in our company?
