New Website

For the past year I was picking my brain as to how I was going to budget my business income to pay for a computer wizard to update my non functioning website. I created a website over a year ago on my own. I will be the first to tell you I didn’t know what I was doing. The website was a disaster. It was a terrible design and remained lost in the cyber world because I didn’t know what to do to help it get attention..

I received a few offers to help me with this pitiful site, and they most likely thought I would be an easy sell. No I wasn’t because I didn’t have the funds to pay for their services. I went so low as to negotiate a payoff deal with no luck.

Last month I received an email from Shopify.com. I was intrigued with their site and how it can make a difference for me. I initially started with their lowest plan at $9.00/month to run a Facebook Store.

I set up the store, followed their online help to improve the appearance, and I had my store up and running. No problem and very user friendly.

The other day I thought about updating my account with Shopify. I reviewed all their options and realized if I paid just $20.00 more per month I can have a FB store and a website with them. I called customer service and they set me up. Within one hour I had a beautiful website established, launched and my stats showed I already had visitors. Wow!!

Yesterday I followed their step by step instructions and moved my domain to my new website. I am so impressed. It has everything I wanted and much more. You can buy directly from my site.

It looks like 2015 will be a new beginning and hopefully the start of a booming business selling my fiber creations, inspirational art and my book all from three sites:

  1. Congrats and all the best moving forward. BTW, did you check out/use Shopify’s marketing/SEO features? If you did, what has been your experience with that so far? It would be great if you can share some info on your hands-on experience either here or on my eCommerce Marketing Tips blog – thanks. 🙂
