          thank you for your offer!

          i am just starting. seems to have all my pieces and now trying to put them together, hopefully the platform can grow with us verses having to add totally new structures along the way.

          pieces, corecommerce shopping cart as it seems to have a ton more features than more others. Mailchimp and it integrates with SMM and wordpress. it is hard not to worry about all the small stuff when i know i need to focus right now on packaging design, and the overall branding but that can really consume a company financially and time frame wise. Do we just go with a cheaper option from elance, and go with the best design, and really go all out and hire a branding company and pay through the nose before we even are out the door?

          many thanks

              Hi Fiona when it comes to branding you can hire someone from Elance to do it for cheap, this does not ensure quality or complete work depending on the person you hire. I have a few clients that ask me the same question, personally I think it is better to start out right with an experienced company that can provide you with something for long term not just short.... but if thats all you can afford in your budget then Elance is a way you can get work done.

              I hope that helps!

              Welcome Tony,

              My partner and I just launched We have hired a third party company to handle our SEO. I was curious if you would be willing to look at our site and give me an evalutaion of our SEO campaign after three months? Is it to early to tell? Are we making any fatal flaws?

                  Hi Tony,

                  Thank you for your kind post.

                  We are working to set B2B / B2C
                  e-commerce tools in our website, and I wonder if you can give us some advice about how to choose among payment solitions such as PayPal and, etc and among the thosands available shopping carts.

                  We want to find a long term solution which must be integrated with quick books, has CRM tools and will be able to carry comprehensive
                  statistics (data and graphs) per customer store (restaurants,
                  supermarkets, etc).

                  We are looking forward to hearing from you.
