Free eCommerce Store Post 1
Hello everyone I'm Alan Branson a Freelance Web Developer, Blogger, and fellow Entrepreneur.
If you seriously want to start your own online business but don't have the web development skills and can't afford to pay to have it done for you then you're in the right place. I have already done all of the hard coding work for you, and due to the Caronavirus I am Giving It Away !!! That's a $2000 value, yours free to use but not distribute.
First of all thank you for visiting today and I hope you continue with the rest of the series. And as always if you find value in what I am giving away please like or subscribe to my YouTube channel. I will not ask you to pay me for anything, but if you would like to donate in support of this project I do have a link setup at the bottom of the page.
Please note that some of the links on my site are affiliate links and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission. Know that I only recommend products, tools and learning resources I’ve personally used and believe are genuinely helpful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to purchase them. Most of all, I would never advocate for buying something that you can’t afford or that you’re not yet ready to implement.
Second with the Caronavirus keeping everyone at home I decided to make this video series to help anyone that wants to, start an online business. I developed this eCommerce Store complete with Shopping Cart & Credit Card Payment System that you can use to start your first online business at no charge.
Everyone, right now, can start a business from home and start making money online. How much money you make depends on how much effort you put into promoting your new online store. But that's a topic for a different series, for now let's get your new store up and running.
All the legitimate experts will tell you that you need a Domain Name, Hosting Account, and a Professional Email address. All of these things I agree with and here is why. In order to create a trusted online presence you have to have a name people can find you by, that name (Domain Name) has to have a place to live a (Hosting Account), consider this the landlord of your store front. That leaves us with the Email Address which is how you will communicate with your customers.
My eCommerce Store was developed to run on a Hosted Domain Account, it will not run on Wix or Shopify. I designed it with PHP and MYSQL databases. If you already have a Domain Name and Hosting Account, most hosting services provide PHP and MYSQL, your good to go and ready to install your new eCommerce Store. If you don't already have a Domain Name and Hosting Account I will help you choose one in the next post. With most hosting services like RoadRunner Websites, which is what I use, you can get a domain name, hosting plan, and a professional email account for as little as the cost of a Netflix account.
That's it for this post. Be sure to watch the product demonstration on my next post where I will help you:
Choose a Domain Name
Pick a hosting service...like Roadrunner Websites
