What Do I Need to Create an e-Commerce site?
If your like me, you weren’t born knowing what websites are or how they function, much less on how they can create perpetual wealth.
Well, its a simple (and frankly redundant) process that hundreds of millions of people use every day:
DOMAIN NAME – Think of a domain name(or business name), purchase the domain name. Give it about 2 years. Where you buy the domain is the same as where you host your site:
HOSTING YOUR SITE: There are many web hosting companies, but the one I’ve heard the most positive feedback is Bluehost Web Hosting. I currently use GoDaddy, but I am going to switch. This as most hosts, includes WordPress installations.
What is WordPress? – WordPress is an open source or free software that allows you to set up complex web sites like e-Commerce, portfolio, news and of course blogs. It’s stength is its flexibility and its use of plugins and custom themes ranging from free to $75.00 on average.
PREMIUM E-COMMERCE THEME – I suggest Shopkeeper for $69.00 plus tax, around $72.00.
FIND A KILLER WEB MASTER (OR MISTRESS) – That would be me, CJ Davidson, webmaster, designer and motion graphics artist. I’m the guy who creates awesome logos, videos, writes ad copy, deals with your web site headaches and gives you a splendid website. I also have backup artists to assit in all your needs.
OUR COST – for ONLY $350.00 plus $1.00 per each photo for resizing and retouching, if needed.
SSL CERTIFICATE – Even if you don’t make cash transactions every other minute, you will need an SSL certificate, available through your host for around $5.00 to $6.00.
Total for a custom Web site:
Web Designer Fee: $350.00 plus $1.00 for each photo retouch and resizing
Premium Shopkeeper Theme: $72.00
SSL Certificate: $5.00
Total: $427.00 For a complete e-Commerce site.
So the theory goes, of you can make the cost, it can pay for itself with one sale. And as they say, the rest is PURE PROFIT!!
