You want to feature and sell your products online. Do you hire a web developer and/or web designer to do this for you or do you attempt this venture on your own?
If you are a logical and very patient individual, I would say, “Go for it.” However, if you have little experience with web design or coding, then I would say, “Leave it to the professionals.”
Case in point: The client approached Sheis Design, asking for an eCommerce site which would promote and sell their merchandise. This organization is a non-profit company, and hiring a firm to develop the database and design from the bottom up would have been cost prohibitive, as well as time consuming. After our consultation with The World Peace Prayer Society, we came to the conclusion that we would select for them the best eCommerce service who could handle their needs, and keep a sense of their design intact.
We chose the eCommerce solution based on their ability to sync with quick books, international credit card orders and their user friendly control panel. Certainly this was not just simply a template in which the client could just plug and play. Much had to be set up by our firm, such as the design of the template, setting up the merchandising accounts, on-site training, and programming specifics to their needs. This project even caused this designer to contact customer support on numerous occasions.
In addition to the setting up on the technical end, we were contracted though our Promotional Marketing department to handle their merchandising, which included product design, merchandising, vendor interface.
Creating an eCommerce site is not for the faint of heart, it is for the individual who possess knowledge, determination, and a degree of patience.
