Charity Therapy will be selling all-natural/organic products and is looking for drop ship vendors based in the U.S. to help fill out our offerings.
Noting edible/ingestible. We are looking for healing/therapeutic items, cleaning agents, cosmetics, home furnishings, home-and-yard products, etc.
I know drop shipping can be time-consuming, so I am more than willing to 'bindle' some of your items into a 'kit' to make the selling price worth your while...as long as it's still condusive to the online shopper as well.
If your product(s) falls into the above criteria, please e-mail me at ChairtyTherapy@ymail.com with your interest so we can start a dialogue.
I tired an open source solution one and was not pleased.
You really need to know what you are doing, or pay someone to un-do what you did.
Sure, there are forums where people will give advice or snippets of code...but they are busy running their own businesses and cant hold your hand as you go thru.
I'm looking at Shopify as my shopping cart of choice, but there are others that seem comparible.
I apprecaite your feedback and I will sit down and watch the videos tonite.
I 100% believe that today there enough tools and plug-ins available so that the 'commoner' can build an effective web-commerce site. My marketing skills are very good...its just the prgramming that I want to simplify.
WordPress sounds like a good option. If anyone here has used Volusion, Shopify and/or Big Commerce I'd like to hear your feedback, too.
A few years ago I created an e-store using NetFirms as my platform provider. Their tech support was GAWD AWFUL, and I almost tore my eyes out of my head trying to learn coding for my OsCommerce-based shopping cart.
It's time to take another stab at an e-store, but my heart is NOT into 'web design'...its in marketing and sales. But I can't afford to pay a designer either.
So I'm trying to find a low-priced e-store/shopping cart provider that would accomodate small patience for the learning curve! LOL!
I've looked at Shopify, Volusion and Big Commerce! require .
I think part of the problem is that since I've taken 3 years 'off', I feel like the world has passed me by and I have to learn it all over again. I want to catch up quickly, get the store up and running quickly...and not spend my kids' college savings getting it running.
Are there specific and note-wrthy differences between teh 3 shopping carts I've mentioned above?
Am I "missing" one that is better/easier to implement and edit?
Something to consider when deciding `what` to blog about:
Don`t look at your blog as a way to gain a new sale each time. Look at it as a way to discuss your areas of knowledge. In other words, if you blog about cheese...all about cheese...hwo to make cheese...how to cook cheese...when you last ate really good cheese....you soon become the authority on Cheese. As people read your stories/popsts they soon take an interst in you, and check out your website.
(Your blog will, of course, be designed to draw traffic to your site...but you don`t want every post to say `please buy cheese` as an example. You want your expertise to be the magnet.)
The good thing about this system is that it then allows you to go to OTHER blogs and leave comments. Often, if someone finds a level of expertise in your comment they will check out your profite...and therefore be drawn to your site.
I hope this hopefull.
PM me with any questions.
