It is possible to start from nothing and
Build ECommerce Sites. Trust me. I've done it.
I started with no more than a rudimentary
knowledge of HTML, and you don't even need to know that
Look at it this way: if you were on some
reality survivor show and the only way to survive were to
follow this terse mandate ("Build ECommerce Site!"),
you could do it. I'll show you how.
Really, an ECommerce Site is just a Web Site with ECommerce
capability. And to do ecommerce, or to sell goods online,
all you have to be able to do is accept payment online. The delivery
of the goods is another whole issue. (And believe me, you should
think about whether you really want to deal with shipping physical
goods if you don't have to!)
Accepting payment online, the essence of meeting the Build
ECommerce Site mandate, is as simple as getting
a PayPal account and building payment buttons with a just a few
web screens. They run your shopping cart for you.
In fact, you may want to consider, depending on what it is you
want to sell, whether you really need to Build
ECommerce Site at all... what I mean is, if you wanted to sell
an Ebook, you could just sign up with one of the
ebook sellers and let them host and sell it for you. They do all
the dirty ecommerce site stuff, and you just wait for your checks
(and of course you get most of the money)!
Now, say you really do want to go through the whole build
ecommerce site thing yourself, you want it to look a certain
way, you want control over everything... but you don't know diddly
about the web. Well, (here comes the sales pitch- yes I'm an affiliate,
but I have used and believe in this product), the best all around
solution for you is called Site
Build It! from SiteSell.com. They're a company run by an MD
who got out of the crazy business of medicine, but uses his scientific
mind to understand how to succeed online, and make it easy to
do for the newbie. So, SBI!
is a one stop turn key solution- it's got everything.
To Build ECommerce Sites with SBI!,
you start the right way- with what people are really looking for
online. Once you find keyphrases you can dominate and get traffic
from (you get loads if you do it their way- I do, and here
are some others who have done it their way and are some of the
most popular sites online), you build your site around that,
and SBI! includes tools for keeping in touch with prospects and
customers with an ezine, and of course the all important selling
ECommerce part of it too. You get everything, including the domain
name and hosting, and you pay for it yearly.
Trust me, I've used SBI!, and it's great. I do basically what
they do, the manual way (even my car is a stick shift- I like
it that way). But if you're a newbie and don't want to learn a
bunch of tech geek crap, then SBI!
is your Build ECommerce Site solution.
