I'm looking for a web developer and an e-commerce expert. Is that you?Submitted by RobHino on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 21:19
I have two small businesses at the moment, an e-commerce site and a marketing services site (not up yet). I'm trying to network with other liberty designers and developers, and perhaps develop some sort of working relationship.
My new site is currently in development, but I'm looking for some advice on e-commerce platforms to migrate my website: www.RevolutionCarBadges.com
Currently it's a simple free WordPress blog with a domain forwarding. I use WePay and PayPal for processing orders, but it's tedious to manage inventory, print shipping labels, and I'd like to launch an affiliate program soon. I'm ready to move to something more permanent, something that is scalable.
I'm considering the following WP Plugins, though I'm not married to anything at this point:
One of my friends is recommending I use Shopify, but I'm concerned about putting all my eggs in one basket so to speak.
Do you have any comments, advice, reviews, or anything to offer regarding those options? Other options?
For my marketing company, I'm looking for a professional, honest, and reliable web developer. I'm a fan of WordPress and the Genesis Framework, though I'm open to other platforms. What I need is someone to turn my Photoshop designs into pixel-perfect, full-functioning websites. Most of my site designs will be pretty basic, as I'd like to hit the small to medium sized businesses here in my town. Some might require some custom features, widgets, or jQuery, and the like, but most will be pretty basic and could utilize open source stuff, something I'm also a big fan of!
I'm looking for pixel-perfect though! I'm not a coder...at all. I'm a designer. I only know enough coding to get me in trouble!
If you have any help to offer, or if you dabble in this kind of stuff, drop me a comment or shoot me an email. Maybe we can do some business together!
Thanks in advance!
Here are are the designs I did for my new RCB e-commerce site. It's pretty basic.
FYI - The price is NOT going up to $19.99! This is just a mock-up I did. It'll stay at $15 + S&H.
Like I mentioned, I'm already working with a CSS developer/friend on this site, but I need some advice some on e-commerce solutions.
One of the main features I want to launch in the near future is an affiliate marketing program to allow other liberty activists, groups, FB pages, and websites to be able to sell my products for a commission. I don't know anything about how to do this and would appreciate any advice you have to offer!
