I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard small business owners who want to sell online utter that proclamation (usually accompanied by a smattering of $%#! &^^@!$# words thrown in for emphasis). And with good reason, because, for the most part, setting up an online store is complicated, frustrating and costly. Until now, that is.
Don’t get me wrong, you can certainly find cheap eCommerce. As a matter of fact, there is a myriad of do-it-yourself ecommerce solutions out there that proclaim how easy they are to set up and use. However, their ‘easy setups’ aren’t exactly easy and will only leave you ensconced in a therapist’s chair, battling a state of neurosis. And you can definitely find uncomplicated eCommerce, but you’ll soon be Googling a bankruptcy lawyer because you ran out of money paying an experienced web agency a small fortune to set it up and manage it for you. (don’t get me started on web developers who THINK they know what they’re doing – all lanes of the information superhighway are littered with the corpses of websites and small businesses killed by amateur web developers). What you want is an eCommerce solution built by a professional, truly easy for you to use, and one that won’t break the bank and siphon away all your hard-earned revenues.
The question is, does that animal really exist? The answer is: yes and no. Yes, because we actually have such a solution. No, in that it’s not too-good-to-be-true (you know what they say about offers that are too-good-to-be-true – they usually are) that costs you nothing and magically produces online sales.
Rather, we know that you are a smart small business owner. If you have someone with experience to help you get eCommerce up and running, enable you with the tools you need to maintain it, teach you how to use those tools, then support you after it’s in place, you will embrace such a solution. You relish a balance of a support system and an independent, do-it-yourself methodology. So, if you’re looking for a solution that won’t cost you anything and will run itself, you can quit reading now. But if you’re a creative, smart, hardworking individual who is open to working with a professional who will endow you with a solution that you can use and afford, well, read on.
What if I told you that you could get a low cost ($3,250 plus $39.95/month) eCommerce website that offers a user-friendly shopping cart and a website management system that is designed and set up by an EXPERIENCED website professional?
