In my 6 years in the web hosting and website design industry, I have realized that it is the small business owners who are slow to take advantage of technology. Technology is not selective in nature and if successfully applied it can be used to grow any business into profitability. What this basically means is that as an entrepreneur you must not wait until you are “BIG” before you can learn to harness technology. Actually you can become big by harnessing technology. Even if you are running a rural trading post or sell goods at an informal market, technology can give you information, efficiency and competitive edge to succeed and prosper. In this blog post I want to help that small business owner thinking about starting an online shop/store for his/her business but afraid that it will break his bank account or maybe he does not have the technical knowledge to manage an online shop.
If I start an online shop/store how much will it cost me altogether?
Our very own website is an ecommerce website, we sell services such as web hosting, domains, web development services. Our website can process payments, send invoices automatically to clients, register/transfer domains, send invoices for due payment and reminders automatically and other cool things. After going through this blog post browse to explore the ecommerce nature of our website. It took us around 1 hour to build our ecommerce website and if we were doing for a customer we would have billed him/her R3150 that’s a fair price but in reality we would bill R11000. Why? because in your eyes as the client it looks complicated giving me room to bill you whatever l see fit. That is how most web developers operate yet its something that can be done in 3 hours or less. If you are a small business owner selling goods and you want a full ecommerce solution that can process payments, with a cart and check out functionalities we have an E-commerce package suited for you for only R2750.
